Customer Reviews

Good app!

As a teacher, I really enjoy using app every day to inform my students of what has happened throughout history on any given day. It is very thorough and exhaustive, with illustrations for each event.

Two improvements I would suggest for future versions: When articles have several paragraphs and the user copies to share on social media, the heading isn't copied. So when the article's text is pasted, important summative information at the beginning is missing. Also, some illustrations are very loose representations of the event, while I can easily find better photos related to the specific article or topic. Perhaps update some of those more generic photos.


Waiting in line, Inpatient much, quick of the gun, then you got to get This app!!! To say this is just a great app would be like a woman saying she's kinda pregnant... No need to buy insurance because you won't be throwing this phone at the wall. Bill, take this one away-
Sure Bob, yes ladies and gentlemen, now you have a reason not to punch your kids. Here you can take yourself to yesteryear and see why we see what we see. Historiologicly saying! I've had this app for some time now and I wouldn't trade it for a nickel!

Awesome App!

This is a great learning app that I would recommend to anyone, especially if you like world history! It basically shows you all the events that occurred on the the current calendar date.
So yesterday I opened it and it showed me all the major events that occurred through out history on September 6th. It also showed me all the famous people that were born on this day and who died on this day.
