The game seems to have a second screen feature that allows you to do other stuff from an external device. I've been trying to find out more and found a few pages and videos that describe this companion app. However I can't actually find any solid details and it sounds quite fun and something I'd like to play with.

Can anybody tell me where I can find the App that I need or otherwise how I can make use of the second screen functionality?

Edit: Since somebody asked what exactly I meant the functionality that I believe it adds is just things like a map showing where you are and other useful information that you'd otherwise need to go into menus for. I believe there may be some options for offline minigames as well (ie offline for the main game, you'd have to be net connected for the app still). Also what I saw suggested that it was an apple and android app.

  • do you mean something like xbox smartglass?

  • I've seen this mentioned with regards to the Directors Cut of Deus Ex:HR recently too. I found this page on the Intel website that mentions it, but there's no download link or anything at the moment.

  • @JLaBella: I've not used smarglass much but did load that up in case it did something special with AC4 plugged in but it didn't seem to.

It's an iPad/Android app. from what I've read it was supposed to be released at the same time or shortly after the game.

In either case it's now available on the Apple App Store & Google Play Store respectively.

  • I just looked at the Apple App Store and it's now available for download

  • i think it may be for the X-Box One/PS4, i've read about how the PS4 will support Second Screen functionality for tablets in certain titles, though i haven't updated my 360 in months and the last PS3 update (about 2 weeks ago) didn't say thing about a second screen

  • @Brian: Edit that comment into the answer (maybe with a link) and I'll accept your answer. For completeness add in the android link too: play.google.com/store/apps/… . Sadly it tells me my device is not compatible but I suspect that is not true given how recent my device is. :( Not sure if my earlier searches just didn't find it or if it only just went up. I suspect the latter though.

  • @Chris - I've edited in the info for you, although in future you can always answer your own question if you've solved it and you feel the current answers are lacking.

    Just a note with latest info that compatibility has improved massively and my S4 Active now runs it fine. Not sure of the full compatibility list though.

Here is the link for the apple store version.



Yes,The game has a application (App) that is downloadable from the App Store or the Google Play Store, the app is just a edited version of the pause screen of the console and PC versions. EG: Acessing Kenway's Fleet. It also records your position and other data in real-time.
