This app allows access to all of the content of the unique collections on A*Star Education Ltd's History Matters website, on almost every iOS device.

History Matters’ goal is to provide teachers with engaging materials for classroom lessons and students with a huge resource of further reading on historical events, including detailed historical narrative, interactive timelines, original source material, eye-witness accounts, maps, photographs and illustrations.

Students can view ebooks, presentations, timelines and flash cards for all of the historical periods covered, from the Romans and Roman Britain to the twentieth century and the First World War, on their iPhones or iPads, or iPod Touch. The bookshelves include specially commissioned books suitable for primary and secondary schools, and certain GCSE textbooks for the 2017 history curriculum in the UK.

Teachers can carry their lessons and resources to show their classes in their pockets. Using an Apple TV (and an HDMI connection), a lesson can be delivered on an interactive whiteboard from an iPhone or iPad, without needing a projector or an internet connection (once content is downloaded a login to the service is only required every 7 days), with seamless switching between all types of media in the collections.
