Great little app

It does exactly what it advertises to do. My only complaint is that it had more information than it does. Which is a lot. This is so fun to see what happened throughout history on each day. Who shares a birthday or died on a particular day. I am a huge history buff and this is great fun. The controls and interface are slick, reliable, and friendly. The app doesn't crash or interfere with other apps on my iPhone 5. No complaints other than wanting more. A great app.

Fun facts every day! I'm not a history buff but this is fun.

Even if you don't click on it you get an alert of fun fact every day. And if you click you get even more, way more, information about that event and others.

In the births/deaths section it needs some context: murder victim isn't enough, little more info on why that soccer player is famous.

I'd like to be able to adjust the font size too!

Great app!

What a wonderful way to learn history. The best thing about it is that it is fun to do, so I really wish I were a schoolteacher and could use this with students every single day. They would learn history and have fun doing it. What a great tool for education no matter the age.
