FortuneQuote for Android

FortuneQuote is a version of the old Unix fortune program for Android.

Some features:

  • Display random quotes from 44 topics and over 15,000 entries
  • Create fortune widgets on the home screen with periodic updates
  • Set periodic notifications
  • Pick which topics to pull from
  • Adjust the font type, style, and size (in main app only)

The first time you run the application it loads the fortunes into its internal database. This process may take about 5 minutes to complete, however, you can use the application after a few fortunes have been loaded (which is within a few seconds).

To install, using your Android device, click here to open FortuneQuote in the Android Market. Or you can scan the QR Code below:
