Customer Reviews


Cool app, except the summaries on most of the events are cut off mid-sentence. And it's not like you can tap it and see the rest. The Wikipedia links are for the people and such, nothing that gives you the rest of the quick little summary. I wanted something where I could get quick little blurbs about things that happened on this day in history. With this app, be prepared to read several pages of Wikipedia to find out what happened!

Could we get an update?

I like the app, but it seems to be in need of more recent information.
Regular updates could make it incredibly useful for students

Who is Felicia Goh Mei Hsuan

In the event section, It says on Feb 14, 1991 that Felicia Goh Mei Hsuan was born. Who is that, it seems to be not written as professionally as the other events. Did someone sneak it in? Is it one of the developers?
