Total P.O.S.

Where's the zero star option? Or better yet the minus stars? Now it won't connect to the Internet. Of course everything else does. So I downloaded the free version and it's the same as the pay version that's been miserable. Maybe they've shut down? I see no updates for a few years. I figure they made their money and have blown town. Really stinks.

Two stars only cuz it's kinda cool when it works. Most of the time there's no sound. I emailed the company, as per their suggestion on the app and have heard nothing from them. $3 isn't a lot, but it's way too much for something that doesn't work. Irritated.

I changed it to one star. STILL can't get sound from the app. Everything else with sound works. Have heard nothing from company. This stinks.


This is very cool. Find your year, go through the categories, swipe through each one, and enjoy! Plenty of content to give you hours of entertainment and historical events. An Internet connection is required to use it but it's well worth it. I only wish you didn't have to close out and reopen to have it check for a connection. I would like a refresh option so if it doesn't connect immediately, I could retry until it connects. Other than that, great work and thank you for making the app!
