The app gave users an easier way to access the game without having to go through the hassle of enabling flash every time they wanted to play the game.
The use of the app by Big Viking Games should be temporary while they prepare for the games massive transition to HTML5 by 2020.
Using the desktop app is very simple. After downloading the app, the icon for it should appear on the desktop screen.
