NEWS: Discworld iPhone/Android app

Postby UnseenTerryPratchett » Wed Aug 15, 2012 6:42 pm

So today I purchased the paperback version of Snuff to go with my collection of all paperbacks and I first began by delving into the back of the book to read the Dodger extract. Shortly after finishing the extract I noticed on the back cover a family tree type thing mentioning all the books Terry was releasing in 2012. It obviously mentioned books like The World Of Poo and The Long Earth as well as Dodger. But what interested me more was the small golden button like object at the bottom of the page. In that golden circle it said "TOP SECRET The Discworld App coming soon!".

Is anyone else aware of this app because I have an iPhone and would love to know if they have announced a release date so that I can purchase it?

I'm just wondering what sort of things would /be/ in a Discworld app? If it's just replicating the info about the books on this website, that's not very good. If it's in an interactive version of the Discworld Companion (or, the upcoming Turtle Recall), then that could be good too. What else could be in it?

[I saw the same thing in the Dodger sampler and wondered a bit about it...]
