Back in Time for iPhone

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

This has become the #1 paid app in ninety-nine countries and won recognition as New & Noteworthy by Apple.

Do you know what were the defining moments in World history? 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 easily understood. 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, beautiful, and great concept piece which has been perfectly executed. I would recommend this to be on anyone's device, if even just as a time killer.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
