Read it every day

B t shop

I have enjoyed this app for several years, and continue to read it daily.
I enjoy learning new things, and especially enjoy history. It is possible to learn as much or a little as I want about subjects, or to pass any subject that I am not interested in.
I liked the previous format in which the older dates appeared first and proceeded to the current date. This has kept me from reading the "births & deaths" to the extent that I used to read them.
Please keep up the good work.

I love these kind of apps!


Informative and interesting apps always intrigue me! I recommend this.

If I could make a suggestion, however, please let there be a setting on whether you'd like to view the most historic/impacting events in history first rather than chronological ones.

I was shocked for a second September 11th didn't mention the 9/11 terrorist attack in 2001 until I realized it was simply below six or so other events. I'd rather see the biggest ten historic events than the last ten.

Indispensable Fun App! My All-time Favorite


...that I check multiple times a day... and have for years! I'm very curious and enjoy being surprised by the events that I learn about through "On This Day..." that I would never have explored. Wikipedia helps power the back end.

I hope this will be made compatible with Mac OS High Sierra?!?
