For those smartphone gamers out there who can't get enough of Mass Effect 3 on console, the appearance of free companion app Mass Effect 3 Datapad on iOS could prove a godsend.

Working in conjunction with BioWare's aforementioned action-RPG, the Mass Effect 3 Datapad application allows you to "take your galaxy with you wherever you go", meaning those complicated feelings for buxom blue aliens are only a thumb swipe away.

With this companion app installed on your iOS device, you'll receive messages from characters in Mass Effect 3 after you interact with them in the main game.

You can also hook into the multiplayer Universe at War component via the Mass Effect 3 Datapad app, which enables you to deploy fleets of ships in your campaign against the Reapers.

And if all that wasn't enough, the app also pings up-to-the-minute news about the Mass Effect universe straight to your handset or tablet.

Download the free Mass Effect 3 Datapad app for iPhone and iPad now from the App Store.
