How to say "by the way" in Arabic?

Does " على فكرة" work for that? 

Where do Arabs use this expression? 

In conversation or in books ? 

Unless would you write me other variants of this expression in Arabic? In other dialects maybe?

In my country, Egypt, we do use: " عَلَى فِكْرَهْ/ صَحِيْح / بِالْمُنَاسْبَة" . I don't know much about other dialects. In standard Arabic?
Something like: " بِالْمُنَاسَبَة"  would be perfect.

By the way is closer to the arabic expression "على أيَّةِ حَال" and it said both in a conversations or written in books.

على أية حال is a slang expression as well.

yes we use it in our conversations but in books it written "بالمناسبة"

there is a plain difference between the two

the expression ' by the way ' in standard arabic is   "بالمناسبة  "

على فكرة is used in a significant number of arabic dialects
