Praise for Timeline WW2 includes:
The Guardian (UK)
"The app is impressive, centred around a timeline of more than 2,000 events during the war, a dynamic map, and Snow's own commentary on the Pathé videos."
Independent on Sunday (UK)
"Dan Snow brings the cataclysmic events of the Second World War to life.....unique timeline maps and expert commentary from the estimable historian himself. The ultimate guide to the ultimate conflict.."
"Timeline World War 2 stands out with features that put history in context....it is absolutely gorgeous...Features like a scrollable map, updated audio for newsreel footage, and day-by-day layout of information...create an app that really stands apart."
TUAW app review
"Timeline WW2 offers museum-quality app interaction....It's a groundbreaking application in that it fully realizes the museum experience, providing a nuanced exploration of a huge amount of data......for any fan of the History documentaries, this is sure to be a perfect gift or self indulgence. It's beautiful, it's expansive, and it's a great demonstration of what the iPad can do at its best."
It’s a beautifully-designed demonstration of the iPad’s powers as a publishing platform for non-fiction.....This reader, for one, found it a vivid and immersive exploration of a defining event in modern history.
Apps for Kids – 5 Stars
“Timeline World War 2 is one of those apps that makes leaning an absolute joy. It would be easy to get lost in this app for hours at a time......This app is absolutely stunning....The timeline itself is beautifully arranged. I cannot say enough good things about this app – parents and teachers will not be disappointed in the content and function of this app”

What's New in Version 1.2
new satellite view maps
Buggy, incomplete and inaccurate !
This is a poor app and not as good as the WW1 or WW2 apps which are polished apps. The app crashes frequently and some of the articles are not complete. They seem to cut off mid sentence. Also inaccurate in places. According to the app, Henry II rebuilt York castle in 1069. Quite a feat seeing as though he wasn't even born until 1133!! Not really acceptable in a app of this price and with Dan Snow's name to it! I wonder if Dan knows how poor it is as it is a slight stain on his otherwise excellent reputation.
