***BEST OF APP STORE 2012***

 “London: A City Through Time” is neither coffee-table book nor guide nor map, but a nearly endless fusion of all three in a digital application, or “app”—nearly 2,000 years in the life of one of the world’s great cities.  Even diehard Londoners are destined to discover something new - The Economist

"The best London history app we've ever seen" The Londonist

Whether a native Londoner, moving-in or just passing through, ‘London – A City Through Time’ is the perfect companion. Probably the most advanced and complete portrait of London ever produced, it offers an indispensable reference to the 2000-year history of the world’s most complex city. It boasts over 6000 articles on the capital’s museums, statues, buildings, streets, trades, people, parks, rivers and more. Over 2000 rare prints and photographs. Thirty-five video documentaries and clips from the archives of the Pathé movie library.

Historic panoramas of the city from the 17th Century to the 19th Century - all viewable as high-definition zoomable images, plus 70 gyro-controlled 360º views of the capital’s grandest sites. There are wonderfully detailed spinable artefacts from the Museum of London. It has audio tours to the haunts and hideaways of robbers and royalty from London’s official Blue Badge guides, and a unique history by tube stop section to let you know what’s above ground when your under it. Linking everything is a synchronised time-line to help navigate with unprecedented ease through every aspect of London’s deep and amazing history.

Everything you need to know about London an then some. Worth twice the price. Very apply (sorry!) indeed.


I haven't seen anything like that for years. It feels like they knew exactly how to make it works both ways: academical and very entertaining. We spent 2 hours non-stop playing with it. The quality of the app itself (graphics, layout) and quality of information is the best you can find these days. It feels that people who created this program have something in common with us - they love London.Thank you guys!It was great fun.
