Ratings and Reviews
Overall it's pretty good
I think this app has a very broad and diverse amount of historical events that it displays. I always learn a lot, and I'm very appreciative of its mix of sports, politics, arts, etc.
However, I do feel there are some major gaps. For instance, I haven't seen any events after 2014. It's 2017, and lots of major events (especially celebrity deaths) have occurred in the last two years that are not included on the app. Secondly, pop culture history is often not included. For example, major release dates of movies and music albums that have been considered by many sources to be iconic aren't included. A movie like The Godfather or Singing in the Rain should have mention, and I've just never seen those dates, but easily found them on Wikipedia.
It's impossible to include all historical information, and I get that, but I'm hoping the developers continue to update it, as history happens every day.
Version 5.0.1 Bugs
Up until this version I would give the app 5 stars but the latest has a couple of bugs I would like to see fixed before I give 5 stars again. I have used this app for years. I am a history teacher and like to tweet out On This Day (#OTD) information. The share button has been convenient and easy to use until the latest version. I believe there is a bug, when I click on one of the references at the bottom, instead of bringing me to the link it returns me to the list of events. Also, in previous versions, when sharing an event, a link to the information was added to the tweet, but that no longer happens. Can you please fix these bugs? Thanks!
I'd Give it a 4 1/2 star rating, overall awesome history
Allow customization to your history. I like American history because im american Good quotes of history, needs to be organized a little better. A few tweaks here and there and I'd give it a 5 star rating.
This app is great for history magnets. Give it a better search option for all countries and in depth details on that day and hours(if available) of how it played out.
Anywhere from early morning in 1775 during the American Revolution War with Britain all the way to Landing on Normady Beach on D-DAY. But overall very useful.
