The Jane Austen Centre at Bath has created the Jane Austen Daily Quote App, a free smartphone app. You can set it to deliver a free daily quote from one of Jane Austen’s novels to your smartphone. This is a delightful idea and we are all for it.
The app also includes articles from the Centre’s online magazine and information about the Centre, as well as a link to its gift store.
Deborah Yaffe pointed out that not everyone has a smartphone. (HOW DO YOU PEOPLE SURVIVE?!?) It occurs to us that we can be better about providing Jane Austen quotation-related services to the non-smartphone-owning Janeite public. Things that make you go hmmm…. 😉
To get the app, go to your app store and search for “The Jane Austen Daily Quote App.” It’s currently available for Android and iOS.
