JFK in Dallas 50
By Robert Tharp
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
50 years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas, there's still plenty of living history touched by the events of Nov. 22, 1963. Beyond the Texas School Book Depository and Dealey Plaza, important landmarks and key players are slowly being forgotten. These pages are dedicated to telling the story -- the well-documented and, importantly, the significant sites that are under threat of the the wrecking ball. Through video, images and an interactive map, learn more about the key players, their unlikely relationships, and the city's seamy underbelly. Finally, test your JFK knowledge with the Conspiracy Quiz.

This is the best JFK app! It has all the elements. Facts, pix, quiz, extra good to know stuff, walking tour with pix. Get it before you go to Dallas. You will get a lot more out of your visit. Get it if you are just curious about why everyone is always making such a big deal out of the Kennedy assassination,- still, after all these years. You will find the answers and more right here!
Pretty useful app. Good alternative to the expensive and cheesy guided tours. I learned a lot about the different characters and their relationships with each other. I also like the images - both modern and archival and the historic videos.
Kind of disappointing
I really wanted to like this app. But it's kind of scattershot and superficial, as well as having several pretty obvious typos and errors, including giving Nov 23 as the date of the assassination in a description of the Tippit shooting. It's a fun novelty for 99 cents but not a rich or scholarly/academic or authoritative document.
