November 9, 2011 in Education
[prMac.com] Ontario, California - For the history buff, the lover of trivia, and the historically-inclined (and just about everyone else) comes a daily world history app with the most factual and interesting information available anywhere. Today in History for iPhone, created by best-selling software developer Downshift Interactive, is the best way to get the daily historical information that you want, when you want it, and is chock full of features - including Wikipedia links - to ensure that even the most knowledgeable history buff will be astounded, time after time, to find out what happened 'on this day' in history.
Today in History - which features a whopping 100,000 historical events and allows users to add and share their own events with friends - provides the most comprehensive and interesting historical information. Posting more than 100 entries per day, Today in History can keep you in the know when it comes to what happened on any given day throughout history, including notable births and deaths, holidays and unique observances, and major historical events.
Today in History provides multiple Wikipedia links with each entry - meaning users can easily access the most interesting information with which to inform and impress - and allows users to share their added event information with friends, connections and family via Twitter and Facebook. In a booming historical trivia category full of apps promising the most impressive daily historical information, Today in History separates itself from the pack by offering a more all-around historical knowledge experience; and clever tools with which users can personalize their experience, by sharing their own important 'on this day' events and personal timelines.
"Obviously, there is a huge demand for applications such as our Today in History app, because so many people - and not just history buffs and trivia geeks - are interested to know what happened on different dates throughout history," said Manuel Zamora, Product Manager of Downshift Interactive. "What differentiates our app is greater interactivity and the available features that make Today in History something more substantial that your run-of-the-mill daily history app - many of which simply text users stale chunks of information. At Downshift Interactive we aim to stimulate users with our dynamic apps, and that is why Today in History is different than the rest; that is also why we felt it was important to let users add their own events and share them with their friends and connections."
Today in History features a clean and intuitive interface, and is optimized for ease of use and convenience in that the app does not require an internet connection, and event submissions - both personal and global - feature a streamlined approval system. Commenting is enabled for every entry, meaning you can respond tongue-in-cheek or with stoic reverence to the most important events in history. A five-star rated app, Today in History is available for $1.99 USD at the App Store, in the Education category, and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
