The QI App
This iPhone app (which can also be used on the iPad or iPod Touch) is one which is quite interesting. Amongst the features of this app are:
* A fully searchable QI Library that includes the complete contents of The Book of General Ignorance, The Book of Animal Ignorance and The Book of the Dead.
* The QI Library rearranges these texts into 56 themed books on a scrollable shelf, which can be customised according to what you have read or bookmarked.
* Each themed book is short but substantial, designed to be read in ten-to-twenty-minute chunks
* A noticeboard showcases a rolling selection of QI quotations, taken from Advanced Banter.
* The QI Interestingometer: a scale from 'not interesting' to 'quite interesting' you can use to rate other people's facts/
* Postcard to the Elves: a facility to send QI your own facts, backed up with evidence (i.e. a photo, text or a web link).
* Teaser facts (exclusive to the app) related to how many facts you have rated or submitted.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
