Back in Time (iPad)

Age Level: Ages 8-12, Ages: 12 +
By Developer: Landka

#1 paid app in nine countries and won recognition as New & Noteworthy by Apple.

Are you interested in knowing what the defining moments in World history are? Or, how about what moments paved the way for life and organisms as we know it? How much do you know about the history of the universe?

A full encyclopedia of historical knowledge of the entire universe is available at your fingertips with this mind-blowing application. It provides the user with a time-line that starts billions of years ago and takes you through the formation of galaxies, stars, the solar system and on through the earliest single-celled organisms up through the dinosaurs, mammals and humankind.

This application is jam-packed with information, pictures and stories. It is very easy to use and the lessons are easy to understand. It's more of an outline of history, so there is lots of room to tailor lesson plans to specific children. Or, it can just be browsed like any encyclopedic reference book.

The app is flawless and beautiful. It is a great concept piece which has been executed perfectly. I would highly recommend this app, if even just as a time killer.

There is also a Back in Time app for additional devices, which is $3.00 less. If you are going to be using an iPad, we recommend you get this iPad only version. We have reviews for both versions, with links to the App Store for additional information.
