This Day in History for iPad is an interactive multimedia calendar that displays historical events for the current day or any selected day, along with related media such as photos, illustrations, music, and speeches. You can hear the national anthems of countries on the day they became a nation, listen to presidents’ speeches on the anniversaries of their inaugurations, and play sound clips from famous artists on their birthdays.
Background text that appears for each event concentrates on interesting aspects that you might not know. For example, did you know that Vermont was an independent republic for 14 years before becoming a state and that George Washington at one point considered sending troops to overthrow the Vermont government? Each event also has at least one picture for every event, so you can experience the people and places making each day in history famous. The journey begins here, each and every day.
Fixed the calendar dates to match the current year.
Ratings and Reviews
This app should be called "This Day in American History" owing to its heavy focus on American events to the exclusion of the rest of the world. It nicely showcases the famous insularity of Americans...!
AMAZING APP! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This is a phenomenal app, I check it every day and have already learned soo much! It has a beautifully designed and smooth layout and is a treasure trove of information that is absolutely FREE! What is there not to like! Get it today you won't regret it!
Not worth the download
Unless you only want to check for the current day, it's difficult to flip the pages through the calendar. So much that I've quit after ten minutes and uninstalled it. Also, there's no more than 4 to 6 facts per day. It's sad considering the numerous events over the times in the whole world. Uninstalled!
