1906 - pictures but no text... no story
If you want to see some turn of the century photographs of the "big"quake, without much of an explanation of what you are seeing and no narative on how to put what you are seeing to put it all into context, then this app iis right up your alley.
If, however, you want to understand all thhe physical and political atmosphere in San Francisco leading up to and as a direct result of the "Big Quake", read the book "The Earth Shook, The Sky Burned" by William Bronson, which contains all of the 23 pictures in this app, plus many many more. Also search the App store or the iTunes store for a PBS documentary that discusses the stame stuff.
This app is a great example of how NOT to design an application. Don't bother!
