Jane Austen and apps might sound an unlikely combination, but fans of the Pride and Prejudice author can now bring a touch of her 19th century wisdom into their modern lives.
The Jane Austen Centre in Bath has released the Jane Austen Daily Quote app, which sends out daily witty quotes from her famous romantic novel.
There are 365 quotes loaded onto the app and you can customise when they arrive on your phone, depending on whether you want a spoonful of irony with your breakfast, or a cutting put-down before bed.
David Baldock, centre director, told the Guardian that he reckons people love Austen quotes because “they’re always witty, lively, succinct and very perceptive and often describe people’s characters really well”.
The app comes loaded with information and articles about Austen and the Regency period in which she loved. It will be updated with 365 new quotes in a year.
