Hi Harrissou,

that is a very old version indeed, but not non functional, it just
supports only "old" androids, if you have a newer android the playstore
will tell you that your device is not supported (still has over 10K
We have not updated much that version because QField is the much better
android solution for QGIS. In fact QField is QGIS core behind an highly
optimized UI and was responsible for a lot of improvements in QGIS
itself. We always make whatever possible/sensible in QGIS and reuse it
in QField then.

QField has a very large use base with over 100K downloads and and
average rating of over 4.5 (out of 1100 feedback), but I guess as you
say still not everybody is aware of it. QField also pretty much mimics
the QGIS structure where we welcome external PR, issues and fixes (so
far QField has had contributions by around 15 developers IIRC and is
translated in 13 languages more than 75%).

Obviously QField is GPL and you can use it as you see fit by simply
synchronizing or copying your data to and from your device.

So yes, I guess we should change that link, I'll discuss that tonight in
the PSC meeting.
