Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This Day in History for iPad is an interactive multimedia calendar that displays historical events for the current day or any selected day, along with related media such as photos, illustrations, music, and speeches. You can hear the national anthems of countries on the day they became a nation, listen to presidents’ speeches on the anniversaries of their inaugurations, and play sound clips from famous artists on their birthdays.
Background text that appears for each event concentrates on interesting aspects that you might not know. For example, did you know that Vermont was an independent republic for 14 years before becoming a state and that George Washington at one point considered sending troops to overthrow the Vermont government? Each event also has at least one picture for every event, so you can experience the people and places making each day in history famous. The journey begins here, each and every day.
What's New in Version 3.0.3
Fixed the calendar dates to match the current year.
If you enjoy history
This is one of my most favorite apps. It is beautiful, informative and just plain enjoyable. If you'r not interested in history you will not enjoy this, but if you like to find out about what history has to
tell us, this is the app for you.
Too Many "Born Today"
Very basic. Too many "born today". I'd like to know a little more about history than just everyone's birthday (or death date).
Too few entries
There are far too few entries for each day. Usually only 4-6. And most of them are just who was born on that date. Please add more entries and actual historic facts.
