This Android application allows you to view Everquest® and Everquest® II guild, character and item details extracted from eqplayers.com and Sony's public data feeds. Search for guilds, character and items and view their stats including guild members, equipped items and stats. Chat with members of your guild.
This application is not endorsed by Sony Online Entertainment except for a friendly "good luck" from Kiara, the EQ2 Community Manager :)

Licence and Source Code
Quest Forever is open source and distributed under the Gnu Public Licence v3.0. Put simply this means that anyone can download the source code for free and build and modify it themselves however the code may not be used in any commercial applications and any changes that are made by contributors must be disclosed. Part of the reason for this is that Quest Forever handles sensitive data (usernames and passwords) and so users should be able to trust the code which is a lot easier if they can read it for themselves. If anyone is interested in contributing to the project please feel free to email the author.
The source code repository is available at https://bitbucket.org/Uxian/questforever/src
Known ProblemsBug tracking is now through JIRA: https://questforever.atlassian.net/secure/Dashboard.jspa
- Guild chat is limited to /guildsay, /tell and log-in/log-out events. I can't add support for item discoveries, guild level dings, character dings, officer chat and a myriad of other things that aren't supported by the protocol.
- The app can't search for data on servers that Sony's data source doesn't support such as PvP Test and Testcopy.
Please note that I am not working on new features and enhancements as much as I was a little while ago due to a new job with later hours and a much longer commute eating up much of my spare time. Feel free to request features and I will get around to them eventually (I may have a lot of free time on my hands after June). I will give priority to bug reports however and attempt to get problems fixed within 24 hours of receiving an email.
