“The internet is a telephone system that’s gotten uppity.” – Clifford Stoll
It is always nice to have something quirky to say, even if somebody else said it first. Having those words in the palm of your hand, anytime, anyplace, can be a real luxury. Quote Book from TOMSOFT allows generations of wisdom to be carried in your pocket in the form of a database of 3,000-or-so quotations.
From the uncomfortable to the hilarious, there are numerous categories to choose your quote from, handy for finding something smart to say in a variety of situations. Everything from art, politics, love, marriage, sports, technology and other subjects are represented. You can also look at your favourites, recent quotes you have viewed, or a random quote.
Once you find a quote you like, you can add it to your favourites, give it a rating, or find out more about the author by viewing their Wikipedia entry from right within the app. You may also email your pearl to a quote-less friend, and share the wisdom.
Sending a quote via email does require you to exit the app and enter Mail. It would be nice if you could come right back to where you left off in Quote Book, but this is not so.
Who said that: Quote Book puts a database of 3,000-plus quotations on your iPhone or iPod touch, letting you search by category, recents, random, or favorites.
Quote Book also offers a search feature, but not on the main page; you may only search within the category you are currently browsing.
In any case, an app that inspires me to send three emails to friends within the first five minutes of downloading it is one that gets on my ‘must have’ list right away. Quote Book has made that list.
