WoW Mobile Armory gets 3-D model viewer, activity feeds and more

The newest version of the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory has been released on iTunes, featuring a 3-D model viewer for all characters, activity feeds similar to the ones on the web version of the armory, and optimizations for Apple's iOS 4.0.

Included in the update is a cool feature called screenshot mode, allowing you to take cool pictures of your characters in front of lots of backdrops, including the racial capital cities. The screenshot mode will even remove all of the interface elements from the phone, giving you a clean shot.

This update could be laying the groundwork for the newly revealed mobile guild chat service available through the armory app, potentially unlocked in the near future for subscribers to Blizzard's Remote Auction House service. Hopefully, more light will be shed on this functionality in the near future. Until then, get updating, because these new features are pretty neat. Previously, I would have had to bookmark the armory's RSS feed for my characters and open them in Safari on the iPhone, but with the new activity feeds built right into the armory app, things have gotten a lot less clunky.

Reminder: Save your mobile authenticator serial number before you upgrade your iPhone

If you're using a mobile authenticator on any kind of phone or mobile device, it's important to remember that it's fairly easy to ensure that you can use it again quickly after the phone gets any sort of update or patch.

All you need to do is write down the serial number of the authenticator application you have on your phone. This way, if you need to deauthorize for any reason (or an update causes any issues) you can do so quickly and easily at battle.net without having to wait for a phone service call or what have you.

This is particularly important for those folks getting the latest iPhone OS, iOS 4. If the upgrade goes haywire for any reason, you'll likely lose all your data off the phone; including the authenticator serial number. This means if you're going to upgrade your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad to iOS 4, you must write down your authenticator serial number to be safe.
