There's going to be one, but they wouldn't talk about it at con because they haven't signed off on the content yet. Pretty much all they said was that Helen Atkinson-Wood would be recording her voice for it, so my insider info is no use here :roll:

I searched "discworld app". Prolly the Discworld bit brought the search engine to its knees!

It was me that initially asked about it. I'm intrigued to know what it will contain. I hope it's exciting and more importantly FREE! :D

I have to say, I doubt that last part. Call me a cynic!

Don't know if it has been mentioned but the app will only be available on the Ipad at first.
