Winston Churchill's Wit & Wisdom - British Politics, Political Quotes, Prime Minister
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This collection of quotations from the speeches, thoughts and sayings of Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) is the only quotation app authorised by the Estate of Winston S. Churchill.
Elegant and user friendly, this app helps us understand – his adventuring, military service, political career, war leadership and statesmanship aside – the key role his words played in making him a household name a lifetime ago, and a dominant figure of the twentieth century. Included are not only the greatest words of 1940, but a wealth of verifiable lines – included for their lyrical beauty and emotional impact, their ability to inspire and entertain, and their often stark relevance to modern times.
This collection is evidence of Churchill’s skills as a wordsmith and orator, his love of language and the principles that made him a great communicator. And Churchill’s love of English was nowhere more agreeably expressed than in words and expressions he created—or old lines to which he gave new life. His curiosity about words produced his best creations, many of which have contributed to English lexicography.
What's New in Version 1.1
We fixed some data inaccuracies and also changed the title as it could not be found easily in the App Store.
Fun App but needs updating
This is a fun app for Churchill buffs but it desperately needs to be updated for the retina and iPhone 5 displays. It just looks terrible. Some video would be nice too. Also an iPad version is needed.
