Ratings and Reviews


A lot of potential, marred by crashes and lack of bibliographic/citation info

A breadth of historical imagery at your fingertips, but never with more than a brief caption, at best. Even a link to more info would be immeasurably helpful. As is, I’m afraid to use any of the treasures I’ve found for anything beyond unguided, fuzzy research.

Thank you, Drive thru

Great variety, scant info

Where are all these wonderful images sourced from? Lack of info is as big a disappointment as the images are a pleasure.


Simple, easy to use interface.

This is a great, simple app for finding new pictures you may not come across anywhere else. I've been using it for about a month now and it's all I could ask for.

Doesn't over promise, doesn't under deliver. Thanks for the native iPad version.
