For iPhone/iPod touch download - Back in Time for iPhone
Back in Time will take you on a stunning exploration of the history of our Universe, Earth, Life and Civilization. A journey through time where each event is documented with social and historical context, several images, an illustrative timeline and little-known interesting facts. Custom made animations bring those events to life, creating an interesting, immersive learning experience.
An imaginary clock will guide you through this quest, proposing a simple analogy: the entire Universe started 24 hours ago. The Big Bang, the source of time and space, is the first event in our journey – the clock reads 0:00 hours. Today, 13.7 billion years later, the clock reads midnight. In between is a sequence of key events that has brought us to where we are today. Explore them, place them in perspective, see how they relate and understand the connections.
We invite you to take a step back and see the whole picture.
:::: REVIEWS ::::
“...a beautifully executed lesson on the history of the universe and the evolution of life on earth. Great for high school students or parents who’d like to tutor younger children and enjoy a first-rate experience of their own...”
- Bob Tedeschi, The New York Times
“The iPad could use more apps like this one.”
- The Daily
“...the best iPad apps are those that combine coffee table-styled books with the fluid nature of the iPad’s interface. Back in Time is just that, it’s the story of the entire history of our universe made interactive on the iPad.”
- Casey Chan, Gizmodo (App of the Day)
“Back in Time is utterly gorgeous in its presentation. (...) The app is so easy to navigate that it is a delight to explore. Landka could scarcely have done a better job in putting everything together.”
- Gwen Phua, Appmodo

I have had this app since about 2011 and it's still one of the few original apps that are still on my iPad.
It's just been updated to include the French Revolution....probably this app is much underestimated, a definite 5 stars! One of the other reviewers of the earlier version criticised the clock saying they preferred the look of the old one, a small point but I agree.
One of my favourite apps. Fascinating and a great way to spend a bit of time, very interesting and easy to use
Don’t worry about the cost, it’s worth it
I've been searching and looking hard for a good app teaching history with fascinating illustrations and this is the one for me! I'm glad there is such an app and wish there would b more apps like this!
