Think you’ve seen everything ‘Titanic’ there is left to see? You haven’t until you’ve watched the never-before-seen footage available only in the Titanifacts app. Supported by Northern Ireland Screen, this application holds a wealth of information about the RMS Titanic, from the first bolt put in place in Ireland to her demise in the icy North Atlantic. Click "...More" to learn why you should download this App today!
Was your great grandfather there on a dock in Belfast in the early 1890’s, slugging long days and working under a deadline to get that ship built? It was the first of its kind – grand, enormous and best of all, unsinkable. That ship, built solidly by hand, would provide safe passage for everyone who boarded her.
Yes, the Titanic was an amazing vessel with a pre-launch reputation of invincibility. That made it doubly hard for people to hear of the tragedy surrounding her maiden voyage. The largest, safest luxury liner in the world had held such promise. Had over zealous company men not been so eager to impress, that promise might have held.
The stories of the magnificent ship breaking and sinking, taking 1,500 people to their watery graves; the few survivors found barely clinging to life in an icy ocean – these tales were as incomprehensible then as they are now.
Although the famous, fated voyage of Titanic is long in the past, it continues to interest people worldwide today. The Titanic story is rich with interesting facts that captivate and stimulate the desire to learn more. For everyone who fits into this group, Titanifacts is a MUST HAVE app.
Titanifacts is your portal to all things Titanic. Offering the widest range of resources and facts, this application is the only one that allows users a special viewing of the never-before-seen documentary, Titanic Island. The film takes you to heart of the prelaunch action. You’ll get more than half an hour of story, interview and the marvels of Titanic engineering.
That’s not all this app is about, though. Users receive current happenings and connections to Titanic communities. The unique images, maps and events make this an indispensible app for fans and history buffs everywhere.

Una Reilly, Chair of Belfast Titanic Society said this of the Titanic Island Documentary: “Congratulations on the footage! It is excellent and flows beautifully. All the interviews are very informal, interesting & personal. “From ships to chips" relating today’s advanced developments on Queens Island is priceless; it was 'the' quote of the entire documentary. Well done again."

That sinking feeling
Couple of bugs have now been rectified, but the videos are still slow, very poor video quality. However, this app has potential. Seems the news and app itself centres largely around Belfast. One peice of advice to the creator of this app - if you wish this app to be a "learning tool" and "historical" archive, best to get the ships right. Too many of the "Olympic" images are being wrongly captioned as "Titanic". The ships may have been sisters, but they weren't identicle.
