    I had it on my Android phone a little while back but had to factory reset my phone in December. I didn't notice till the last week but QRZDroid did not get reinstalled.

    I went looking on the Play Store and it isn't there. I Google the wide open internet and all I can find is an announcement on QRZ back when the app came out.... and it has a link to it on the Play Store. When I click the link it goes to the play store but says that the URL is not there!

    In another place I found what looked like the Android APK for QRZDroid so I pulled it down.... tried to perform the install... and it failed saying that "the URL was unavailable".

    I have been unable to find anything on QRZ saying that the app has been pulled, dropped, discontinued.... or anything.

    Does anyone know what happened to it???

    Thanks in advance,

    Just got a reply

    The support team sent the following message:

    Hi there. We are working on a redesign of the app. Our old one didn't conform to the standards of their last update. We should be finished very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    To install the QRZ Droid apk you need to go to android settings and allow Unknown Sources by checking the box
    When installed please uncheck the box so no unauthorized apps can be installed
    Hope this helps
