For the past few weeks we have been playing with the Topps Star Wars: Card Trader app. I have enjoyed it as a way to connect with Star Wars photography for a few moments each day. Other times I enjoy reading the card backs (yes, they are canon). Each day you get a few free credits to buy a pack or two with. If you sign in for a week consecutively you get a bonus. You can get cards by buying credits with your own money or you can watch sponsored videos and download sponsored apps to get in-game credit awards.
You can friend me on the app. My name is MakingStarWars. For all the new cats joining today, send me a trade for my white carded doubles and I’ll give them to you for being a pal.
The biggest drawback has been the lack of users on other platforms than iOS. Today that all changes as the app is now on Android:
