Romulus US History is a quiz-based application of iOS devices designed to help students review for exams in US History, such as AP US History and IB History of the Americas, as well as for unit tests and mid-term exams. Our goal in designing this program is to allow students to reinforce their content knowledge in a fun, quick and accessible way.
This app contains over 800 review questions with topics ranging from the Native Americans and Colonization to the Cold War and Contemporary America. All questions have been written or reviewed by Tom Richey, a teacher with several years of experience teaching AP US History. In order to best provide quick, accessible explanations to students, the app utilizes external links that allow students to quickly review content when needed.

A Bit Helpful but not really necessary.
This app is very much like quizlet and the good part is that it’s fast and quick to help you learn info. However, the questions aren’t in the AP multiple choice format. There are no true or false questions on the exam, but many of the questions in the app have this format. Adding real prep multiple choice questions from practice APUSH exams would be really helpful so students can have a basic idea of the format. Other than that, I was that the app was organized into the different periods which was helpful. Also the option of looking at info regarding your wrong answer really helped. I would recommend this app.
Maybe some reformation needed
So, a lot of this is good. It goes over vocab, policies, presidents' and eras' quirks, and dates, but a big problem for me is that it goes over battles. The AP test really doesn't care about the battles and wars, just the effects they bring. So maybe the questions need some work, but it's an okay source, even though it's ultimately one I would not use to replace textbooks.
Great Way to Review
To be honest, it is quite simple. Just a multiple choice quiz for many topics about US History. However, it includes additional information when you don't choose the correct answer. I like it and I'd recommend if you want to quickly learn. Obviously, this isn't meant for everyone. $1.99 isn't a lot for just a few quizzes. I'd appreciate looking at study guides or lists to help one understand what happens in certain periods.
