Quantity over quality
As other reviews have stated, the grammar is poor. My next problem (I will avoid discussing the historical inaccuracies) is that this app tries to cover too much history, and doesn't go into any depth to help users understand the meaning or context. The maps, however, are a great start, but could also use some additional context.
It gets two stars for having great potential, especially with so many schools using tablet devices in the classroom. The idea of having all of US history at your fingertips is wonderful. But, this app is in need of serious revision and editing.
Not Very Good
There are a lot of grammar mistakes, but also not a lot of context. I was disappointed when the app said American Indian culture "sprang up" and then skipped 13,000 years to the Vikings, never again to mention First Peoples until the French and Indian War.
Some information is not correct. The first black President was John Hanson. He was appointed by congress. There were 5 biracial President before Obama.
