    QRZ is pleased to announce that a new mobile call sign lookup app is now available for both Apple/IOS and Android phones. The app has been produced by Robert Allen, N5IKD, a long time ham and programmer.

    Allen worked closely with us to develop the app in record time. The app has no ads, doesn't gather any information about you, and is simple, fast, and accurate. What else could you ask for?

    The app is 100% FREE, and no subscription is required even though it uses our high-speed XML subscription call sign server. Instead, for the first time at QRZ, this app is being generously supported by the users themselves by way of Patreon donations. Users who find the app helpful are encouraged to go to Patreon and make a donation to the cause.

    Check out Ham Callsigns today in the App Store or in Google Play today!

    Below are a couple of screenshots of a lookup for AA7BQ:

    Also announcing End of Life (EOL) for existing QRZ apps.

    Two current apps by QRZ include an Android offering as well as an Apple/IOS program that were each independently developed. Both of these programs are being retired now in favor of having a single common platform that works across all types of smartphones and tablets. These apps will be removed from the App Store and Google Play, however, if you're still using them you may continue to do so. If you do, use caution not to uninstall the old version because it cannot be re-installed.

    For questions and comments, reply to this thread or contact N5IKD by PM here on QRZ

    Looks interesting, thanks for all the good work. Just wondering why everybody everywhere wants to get more apps on their device? I use the browser and have quick access to all the great QRZ features, logbook etc.

    Any link to Android Play Store for the app, I don't seem to be able to find it. Or is it limited to the North American market?

    I also had difficulty finding it, until I simply matched the logo/icon with the image shown above.

    It appears to be called "Ham Callsigns", released by "Staton Systems". QRZ.com is not mentioned in the title, however the synopsis clearly states that the application utilizes the QRZ.com XML database, and requires a 1-time login.

    Let us know if the link does not work for you, outside Norh America.

    Cheers,
