Brilliant app!


Excellent - a history fix whenever you want it

Lovers of history should download and subscribe ASAP. The new format is excellent; the articles more scholarly than those in other popular history magazines - while remaining approachable and interesting; and the expanded content (including weekly mini-magazines to go alongside the monthly main issue) means there's always something fascinating to read.

Great magazine

Each issue has a good mixture of writing and even if I don't read everything there's usually something interesting. App works well on my phone.
