    Blizzard posted news today offering users a chance to Beta Test their new Desktop Bnet Ap. Details:

    In the months ahead, the game launchers for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, and Diablo III will be automatically updated to our new desktop app for Battle.net, designed to improve the launcher experience and streamline your ability to play Blizzard games — but if you’re interested in upgrading now, you can!

    What’s this launcher update do? The new single sign-on functionality allows players to log in once to access World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, and the upcoming PC and Mac versions of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and stay logged in for up to 30 days.

    Players can also install games directly through the app and, if you choose to leave the app running on your desktop, keep them up-to-date automatically even while you’re away from your computer. Please note that it’s entirely up to you whether you wish to leave the app running — you can exit it at any time, and it will automatically re-launch whenever your standard launchers would.

    For more information, check out the FAQ.

    You can download and get to beta testing the ap with this link, and of course you’ll need to sign onto your Battle.net account to set it up. Comments on the ap thus far are pretty positive; it’s said to be very useful if you play multiple Blizzard games, grabbing patches and hotfixes automatically and saving you time logging in and eliminating the need to always be using different authenticators.
