Farewell to the Discworld app

‘One of the universal rules of happiness is: always be wary of any helpful item that weighs less than its operating manual.’ – Jingo

From today, the Discworld app will no longer be available for purchase. It will also cease working on devices that upgrade to iOS 11. We would like to thank the fans that have downloaded the app for their feedback and hope that you enjoyed the experience. The app team have issued the following statement:

‘We recently found out that Apple are withdrawing support for 32-bit apps in their newest operating system, iOS 11 – this means that all 32-bit apps will stop working on devices that upgrade to iOS 11. As it was developed several years ago, the Discworld App is a 32 bit app and falls into that category. We have looked into updating the app in line with Apple’s new OS, but the original developers of the app are no longer in business and without them we unfortunately don’t have access to the complete assets needed for this kind of update. So we’re sad to say that the Discworld App will no longer be available to buy after Apple updates to iOS 11, and will no longer work on devices that update to iOS 11. We apologise to any Discworld fans who will be disappointed by this.’
