Pretty Good, but needs a couple fixes...
App crashes when you click on 'Mayflower Lands' under 'Chronology' section. Also, there are a few typos in the text that are annoying. If those problems are fixed I will give it 5 stars.
Fantastic info ... Common Core friendly
Contains original charters for each colony ... Can you say Common Core?!
We love the information in the individual colonies, but cannot take advantage of the multimedia section -------------- Update... App creator very helpful. This is one of those apps that you have to switch your settings to use the mute button and the turn it off when the app is open. Multimedia works fine now!
My daughter had a paper to write on the 13 colonies. Found this app and could not have been happier. It was well written and easy to follow. History really came alive for both me and my daughter. Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed.
