Back in Time will take you on a stunning exploration of the history of our Universe, Earth, Life and Civilization. A journey through time where each event is documented with social and historical context, several images, an illustrative timeline and little-known interesting facts. Custom made animations bring those events to life, creating an interesting, immersive learning experience.
An imaginary clock will guide you through this quest, proposing a simple analogy: the entire Universe started 24 hours ago. The Big Bang, the source of time and space, is the first event in our journey – the clock reads 0:00 hours. Today, 13.7 billion years later, the clock reads midnight. In between is a sequence of key events that has brought us to where we are today. Explore them, place them in perspective, see how they relate and understand the connections.
We invite you to take a step back and see the whole picture.
:::: REVIEWS ::::
“...a beautifully executed lesson on the history of the universe and the evolution of life on earth. Great for high school students or parents who’d like to tutor younger children and enjoy a first-rate experience of their own...”
- Bob Tedeschi, The New York Times
“The iPad could use more apps like this one.”
- The Daily
“...the best iPad apps are those that combine coffee table-styled books with the fluid nature of the iPad’s interface. Back in Time is just that, it’s the story of the entire history of our universe made interactive on the iPad.”
- Casey Chan, Gizmodo (App of the Day)
“Back in Time is utterly gorgeous in its presentation. (...) The app is so easy to navigate that it is a delight to explore. Landka could scarcely have done a better job in putting everything together.”
- Gwen Phua, Appmodo

Amazing but needs more historical content
As a tech lead at our school we were going to purchase this for our 250 ipads because the earth history and time line tools were excellent. However, after trying it out for two weeks we decided to hold off for now. The primary reason is that the historical dates are simply too far apart. Entire civilizations are missing and there are huge jumps between entries. For example it skips from the age of discovery to the industrial revolution and then world war 1. Despite the price this would be a slam dunk if you were to take a hard look at a global history course and fill in some gaps.
