Great US History and Government app!
Excellent US History app with so much accurate information packed in. What a great way to learn. I think it is by far the best out there. I also find it fantastic for locating any government department or service quickly and easily on the iPhone. I think both adults and students are going to love it and find it very useful! Highly recommend over all other similar apps I have tried. Good work on the update! For content delivery alone it deserves five stars plus!
Fix this or refund
The app crashes immediately every time I try to open it. This has been going on for months with no fix. Shameful negligence on the part of these developers, particularly for a paid app.
This app doesn't work well.
