Sobering, surprising, surreal. All terms that accurately describe the many statistics associated with the events of September 11, 2001. This application examines the terrorist attacks of that day through a series of numbers, some subtle, some stark, that quantify the enormity of the loss. Not forgetting is not enough - it's also important to grasp the measure of what transpired.

Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't put things in perspective very well.
A good idea, but the human mind has trouble understanding concepts such as a million (a common number throughout the application). An improvement would be to use simpler numbers to illustrate the size of one million.
As for the people claiming it was a conspiracy: As has been said before: Learn some science. For every site that calls shenanigans on 9/11, there's one desputing each "fact" in the "loose change" movie (and every other thing similar to it). Guess what? The guy who made that movie is still alive, and the video still exists. If the government is okay with killing thousands, why not kill this one?
Then there's the science. Yes, jet fuel can't melt steel. But steel loses half of its structural integrety at a temperature well below that of flaming jet fuel.
To all those who wish to express their political views rather than actually tell us what you thought of the app: You are disgusting! There are many forums to which you may express your theories and spew political anger.....this should not be one of them. Did you ever think that family members and loved ones of the victims may and probably will be on iTunes checking out this app? Is that fair to them? Have a little bit of concern and decency for the families of people who lost their lives on that horrible day in our nations history. I have my own political views and express them freely like everyone else, but is this the place to do it? NO IT CLEARLY IS NOT! Use some common sense! I will flag all of your comments and also send an email to iTunes regarding this. I hope they do the right thing and remove your political nonsense from here..
I just downloaded the app. I will review it with a later post.
when it comes to reviewing an app with info about 911 there can't be statements like, "I'm incredibly sorry for the lives lost but I think what really happened was blank..."
what's really worth looking at is those who died, were injured and those that lost beloved family and friends in the tragedy
human life should be the subject matter that's most valued, not political opinion
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
