The updates to QRZ’s Android App, formerly known as QRZDroid have been released and are available to those who are interested in trying it out. The app has a new name, now known as QRZ Assistant. There are a bunch of new features and a brand new look and feel that we’re hoping our users will appreciate.

We’re still working on the program’s help and other documentation, but for now the App is ready to explore. Here are a few screen shots of the new app.
