Romulus US History is a quiz-based application of iOS devices designed to help students review for exams in US History, such as AP US History and IB History of the Americas, as well as for unit tests and mid-term exams. Our goal in designing this program is to allow students to reinforce their content knowledge in a fun, quick and accessible way.
This app contains over 800 review questions with topics ranging from the Native Americans and Colonization to the Cold War and Contemporary America. All questions have been written or reviewed by Tom Richey, a teacher with several years of experience teaching AP US History. In order to best provide quick, accessible explanations to students, the app utilizes external links that allow students to quickly review content when needed.

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Ratings and Reviews
A Bit Helpful but not really necessary.
This app is very much like quizlet and the good part is that it’s fast and quick to help you learn info. However, the questions aren’t in the AP multiple choice format. There are no true or false questions on the exam, but many of the questions in the app have this format. Adding real prep multiple choice questions from practice APUSH exams would be really helpful so students can have a basic idea of the format. Other than that, I was that the app was organized into the different periods which was helpful. Also the option of looking at info regarding your wrong answer really helped. I would recommend this app.
Developer Response ,
Hello Bending Danny. This is Duke from the Romulus Team. Thanks for your honest feedback. We are currently working on our NextGen APUSH and we hope to address some of your concerns with the new coding. Having a way to access the real exam might be doable. Thanks for the suggestion! We agree that having the answer explanations really help and are a great way of learning the content. Thanks again and Press On! Duke
Good but not great
It’s helpful for reviewing before the exam. All questions are quick and in a DIFFERENT FORMAT then exam. It’s still nice but it really is just a quizlet app that is organized for APUSH by categories of each topic. one annoying thing is it doesn’t save your score after leaving a section. Only a few bugs.
This app is not useful and not worth 1.99
The questions are meant to be helpful for using more specific examples in your free write answers (SAQ, LEQ, DBQ) but the answers are faaaarr too specific and useless information. In what world would I need to know the 3rd party presidential candidate who only got 48 electoral votes in 1968. For 70% of these questions I would say the information they give you is not only too specific but useless. Another 20% of the questions are far too easy and basic level information that don’t call for any higher level thinking. Only about 10% of these questions actually call for a reasonable level of high level thinking that tests feasible knowledge of US history.
