This is the best app in the app store (& I have thousands.) I deleted all my other quote apps and this-day-in-history apps as well. I can't understand why these ratings are so low. I have found nothing to complain about this very informative app. The interface is great and there are no ads. I wish I could give it 10 stars!
make wisdom one of your daily vitamins
when i use iwise, and i use it frequently, i focus on the content, and the content this app dishes out is phenomenal. we have forgotten so much of what this app strives to teach. and it does so in a highly intuitive way; it prompts us to learn from others. for it is not the app that teaches, but the larger than life people who appear in the app who impart their knowledge to us. we have forgotten so many of these brilliant minds who brought us revelation after revelation. iwise pays tribute to their souls, and helps to keep their spirits alive because by using iwise, we each come to understand the wisdom that they bring to the world.
Wrong dates and repeat quotes
Nice collection of quotes, but it often shows wrong date with same quote for a few days in a row (e.g. It has shown Oct. 1 for last two days with same quote even though today's date is Oct. 3; "day in history" shows today as Nov. 3). Also, when clicking on some quotes as result of search, you're kicked out of app altogether.
