Hi jhambly.

There's no plans I'm afraid, but if they do change then you'll hear things here first.

If it is daily facts and QI info that you're looking for, then Jenny's right that @qikipedia is a good place to start:

There's a fact of the day on our front page:

And another one at the BBC here:

You can see a daily news feed of Quite Interesting news here:

And you can see all the interesting stuff, videos etc we find on the web here:

If you're tech-literate, then you could probably get an rss player, subscribe to all those places and never need to put your phone down again.

Hey jhambly,

Like you, when I first got my android phone one of the first apps I looked for was a QI app. Disappointed, I started work on one. Currently, it is functional, just not very pretty. Once it's tidied up I'm hoping to include a widget so you can have the quote displayed on the home screen each day if you want. I'm thinking the fact might be too long to display comfortably in a 4x1 widget, but I'll look into it.

I hope to get it out to the market sometime in the couple of weeks, so I'll post back here when it's ready.

Interesting idea. Let me know if you'd like something set up to make your life a bit easier. In the past I've had to set up a specific RSS feed for the BBC so they could integrate it into their webpages a bit more easily. I could easily knock up something similar if it'd help you out.

I just "upgraded" to an Android phone and the QI app is a big loss. What shall I do now?
Still no plans for an Android port?
Is this an Apple exclusivity agreement or lack of development budget?

Welcome dave.kennard :-)

You could always try sending a private message to dr.bob or meh to see if there are any further developments there.
