Product Description

Mobile Grid Client is a Second Life (SL) and Open Simulator (OpenSim) messaging client/viewer with local chat, IM, group chat, people search, mini map, the ability to teleport, inventory support and much more.
The unique client-server architecture of Mobile Grid Client keeps you connected to the grid all the time, even when your phone is in standby.
Visit our website for more information.

The first 14 days of usage are free.
After then you have to PAY A MONTHLY FEE (starting at L$250) for usage. The fee is NOT recurring and Mobile Grid Client will always ask you before charging your account.

First of all you need a Second Life account. Mobile Grid Client is not a full featured Second Life client with 3D rendering, so setting up your avatar has to be done in a standard desktop client. You can create your new Second Life account and download the official client for Windows, Mac and Linux at

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Great April 25, 2011

Obviously we know you can't load SL onto your Droid but this app is awesome so far as grid clients go. There's even a mini-map so you can see where people are at in the sim. Full chat, group and IM capability. Was skeptical after the first review but am glad I downloaded this.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for what it does December 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a text client for sl. That is all. The ones rating it low don't realize that the creator has to pay for his own server to make this app work with sl. The server is a go between that makes it all work. If you don't want to pay the very small monthly fee that helps him keep that server running then don't use it. But don't one star it because you are a cheapskate. I for one have been using this since I found it on android. I love it. It's a text only app. Don't expect to be able to run around. Again it does what it claims to do great but a lot are giving it low stars because of things they expect it to do yet it doesn't say it does. I love it for what it does. A pure text client.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for what you're buying!!! July 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
OK there are no graphics so you can't see yourself or other avatars. But, you are on your phone not a huge monitor, it would be difficult to see much anyway. You have a map and you can tp and chat and IM on your phone, so if you go somewhere on vacation, or at work or a friends house, you can still take sl with you. Oh it also works on avn and other open sim grids so thats even better. It does cost money as opposed to some ad supported apps but its only as low as 250L a month which is like 70 cents so its not much. Once you get used to it you'll like it a lot!

4.0 out of 5 stars At least can chat and IM December 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
When my home computer crashed, I was so thankful I found this app. I was able to chat at my nightly "meeting" with my daughter. I could not see the landscape or move (so I was standing in front of her). She could see the chat bubble above me and thus knew what I was saying. There were a few other functions available, but I did not test them (such as teleport and pay). I recommend this app if you want to know when another person is on, where s/he is located, and exchange messages without needing to see the landscape or take any significant action affecting the scene. And the price is right -- freeeee :).

3.0 out of 5 stars Great application if... May 14, 2011
This application works great but isn't worth the monthly fee. I really enjoyed using it during the trial period but was surprised at how high the fee was to continue using it.

I found a better app that doesn't require me to pay in Linden each month. For the other app all i had to pay was a one time fee and it works better than this app.

4.0 out of 5 stars just short of a full 5 stars... October 16, 2012
By 606
Verified Purchase
This would be a 5 star app if the monthly fee were less as it is chat only. Having said that this app works wonderfully for what it is, a chat app for SL.

Yes some Android phones and all tablets could easily run a SL viewer should one be developed. Hence rating this app low for not being a fully featured viewer is highly unfair, it is just to chat with friends on SL. Some of the added features such as being able to use it to say park your "Avi" at home are really nice touches and do really add utility to the app. Just the high monthly fees are a bother yet to me very worth being able to chat with my SL friends from my Fire when I am not home in RL or my desktop is being used by my wife.

Though I do agree that there should be a fully featured SL viewer for tablets at the very least I am not going to bash this app for not being one. If you are like me and do have an extensive network of friends and other contacts on SL I do highly recommend this app as it greatly enhances your ability to keep in touch with especially business contacts while on the go. This ability is of great use to me given I am heavily involved in the live music industry in SL and as with all others like me keeping the music alive in SL is somewhat of a passion, and this app helps immensely toward that end.
