We are delighted to launch the RuneScape Companion web app to all RuneScape players today. It’s a new way to talk to your friends in RuneScape using your mobile phone, tablet or PC without logging into the full game.
It's a web app, so rather than needing to install it from an app store, you simply follow these steps:
For the moment, the web app supports Friends Chat, Clan Chat and Private Messages to and from the game, but we’ll be adding more features throughout 2014. Let us know what you’d like to see!
This is the first version of the web app, and it's still a work in progress. It currently works on more modern Android devices and the iPhone 5 upwards. Please check the list of supported devices below to see if it will work on your phone or tablet.
If your device isn’t currently supported, we’ll be making updates to the web app in January which should increase this list substantially.
Desktop PCs and laptops, using Chrome.
Android devices with 1GB RAM or more, using Chrome. These include:
Samsung Galaxy S3
Samsung Galaxy S4
iOS devices with 1GB RAM, using Safari. These are:
iPad 3rd Gen
iPad 4th Gen
iPad Mini retina
Currently, the web app doesn’t work - or performs unreliably - on the following devices:
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
Any Android device with less than 1GB of RAM.
If you have any questions, head over to the FAQ. If you have any problems using the app, or any suggestions on improvements you'd like to see, let us know on the RuneScape Companion forum.
