Ratings and Reviews
Beautifully designed and educational app, but some errors.
It is excellent app. I found one error. Edward VI is the son of Jane, not of Catherine.
Developer Response ,
I should say that this has now been fixed. Thanks for spotting it!
The one I’ve been waiting for!
Gradually my earlier Monarchy Apps ceased being maintained and didn’t work with the new versions of IOS. I deleted the last one sometime in 2018.
But now this wonderful app has appeared. I’ve only just skimmed through it, but it’s looking good so far.
Lovely little app for history buffs
