World of Ice and Fire App

So the official George and his publisher approved World of Ice and Fire app is available. I can attest to the fact that he personally worked on this project, because I sat and took notes as we went over hundreds of questions on random Ice and Fire arcana. No, it didn't delay Winds of Winter. I made him do it while he ate lunch. Yes, he complains when I make him work during lunch.

The most iPhone literate person in our office had this to say after playing with the app for a while:

"Have you ever forgotten who killed who, or who's who's parents while having a conversation at a coffee shop or between novels on the bus? Well now that The new official WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE app is available you can fact check any and all things Ice and fire anywhere you find yourself. The app is on sale for the iPad, iPhone, and Nook, a limited free version of the app is up and ready for fans to download with additional info pack available as well. It features profiles of more than 540 characters, 380 places, and major houses, along with interactive world maps. This exclusive guide to all things Ice and Fire is easy to navigate featuring beautiful art, and easy touch access to any query you may have on your journey through Westerous. You can read new text specially written for the app by Elio M. Garcia and Jr. and Linda Antonsson all about your favorite characters and their histories. So go and download yours today and get access to the World of Ice and Fire at your fingertips."

Sounds like a ringing endorsement to me. Ordering links are included below:

Any plans for a version for those of us on the more robotically inclined mobile platform, or is this strictly for the orchard frolicking folk?

(Is it coming for Android is what I'm saying. ;))

It's out for the Nook, and Nooks run Android.

Awesome! I think I'll pick it up for my Nook. But, then again I don't want to stop reading on my Nook to look up info so it'll probably be better to get it on my iPhone.

FYI, HUGE spoiler in the Castamere listing. I have only downloaded the free version so far and admittedly did not set any of the spoiler blocking settings, but I would expect the default content to be as spoiler free as possible. I would certainly expect it not to spoil this plot point, it's a bad one to sneak through.

Beautiful art and GUI though.

I think this app deserves to be cross-platforms (Android, but also Windows Phone) and cross-countries too (you have a lot of fans all around the world who'd wish to access this, even in its English form ;)).

Otherwise, it's a great idea!
