Finally, An App that Truly Validates the iPad

Just released yesterday was the first ever app set on Discworld.

The app includes two hand drawn maps of Ankh-Morpork, references to over 2000 business, landmarks and services, walking tour routes, and much more.

It’s a little pricey for an app, weighing in at $14, but I bought it with far less deliberation than I give a $0.99 app.  Of course, I’m an unabashed lover of all things emanating from or around the Disc.

It’s amazing what you see if you keep your eyes open.

Welcome to Ankh-Morpork!

There’s a saying that all roads lead to Ankh-Morpork. At least, there’s a saying that there’s a saying that all roads lead to Ankh-Morpork. And it’s wrong.
