in Reference

[prMac.com] New Rochelle, New York - MultiEducator today is pleased to announce EXPLORERS: The Story of Exploration of the Americas, From Before Columbus to Cartier 1.01 for iOS, the latest in their series of History on the Go apps. The educational multimedia app presents the stories of 16 Explorers of North and South America, providing engaging resources about each, including: Summary, Maps, In-Depth Article, Multimedia Presentation, Biography, and Historical Documents. These chapters are perfect study companions for students going through standard, statewide, history curriculum modules.

Feature Highlights:
* Summary of each exploration
* In-depth chronicle of each explorer's journey
* 1-3 minute multimedia/video
* Biography of the explorer
* Map showing explorer's discoveries
* Historic, primary source document

Retina display compatible, the self-contained, landscape-orientation app displays on its splash page a collage of the faces of 16 world famous Explorers, from the Native Americans and Christopher Columbus (1492), to Samuel de Champlain and Henry Hudson (1609). Touching any image reveals a full-size portrait of the man on a solid black background. Thumbnails across the bottom of the screen provide access to the six different categories of resources available to the user (Summary, Maps, In-Depth Article, Multimedia Presentation, Biography, and Historical Documents). Touching any thumbnail button opens that page immediately.

All educational materials are authoritative and clearly written, and are appropriate for both students and history buffs. Especially noteworthy are the Multimedia Presentations and Historical Documents. The presentations are professionally narrated mini-documentaries, and they encapsulate the explorer's accomplishments in a dramatic and entertaining format. The documents are records and observations written by the explorer himself (or an assistant) during his quest.
