Clear, concise and beautiful presentations of primary sources work in tandem with zoomable maps and images to illustrate the key events of King John’s reign. The app gives users the unique opportunity to evaluate the deeds of King John using an interactive judgement tool that also records the user's reasoning behind their opinions. When all the topics have been examined the app calculates a final judgement, revealing to the user their true feelings about King John.

The review section contains a useful summary, areas for further discussion, source questions and a self-marking quiz. This app is a must-have for the student, specialist or anyone with an interest in history.
