Timeline WW2 is one of the most impressive history apps we've seen yet, and sets the bar very high......The first thing to note is the sheer depth and range of this app.... It's easy to see this being of great benefit for educators, while the lay person with an interest in history will lose hours exploring little known aspects of the war.
"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."
The Independent on Sunday

A stunning yet simple audio-visual tour of the last great Global conflict......Timeline World War 2 with Robert MacNeil is like owning a private, comprehensive WWII museum where the docent and permanent collection are beyond compare. History buffs and students should grab it with no hesitation.

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 nonfiction.....This reader, for one, found it a vivid and immersive exploration of a defining event in modern history.
Note: The app is being distributed internationally, with the spelling currently set to US English. The video content requires an internet connection to view.
What's New in Version 1.1
New content updates.
Gets better with each release.
Has a few bugs that causes crashes but This can be tolerated on a new app. But the content is lacking. It may be me but it doesn't even have Chamberlain's famous war declaration speech.
UPDATE: it does now and it's much improved. Well done Dan Snow
Looks a good App, but the videos take ages to load! If I Player can do it so should you. Needs sorting.
