Psion

Psion Logo Psion was initially awarded the contract to write the suite of office programs for the Sinclair QL's release and went on to produce some excellent games and programs for the QL.

The development team included the chairman David Potter, technical director Charles Davies and software director Colly Myers.

Later Psion expanded into mobile phone software and were a PLC listed on the London Stock Exchange. In 2012 they were purchased by Motorola and in 2014 assets that included Psion were sold on to Zebra Technologies. Psion is now (mid 2020) a subsidiary of Zebra Technologies.

The software published by Psion includes:

Interestingly, the September 1985 issue of QL User refers to Psion working on a third simulation which they understood would be a flight simulator on a par with, if not better than Sub-Logic's bestseller on the IBM PC. However, the first versions were intended for the Atari ST, although this never appears to have been published on any machine.
