Here's a chance to learn about history through the use of multimedia tools, which only enhances the entire learning process. In the Civil War America’s Epic Struggle app users will be able to browse through the more than 1,000 high-resolution photos, 100 maps that are authentic, over an hour worth of presentations, first-hand accounts, biographies, and text articles.

The app went through a fairly major bug fix earlier this year to ensure stable performance. It has three out of five stars from users sending a message to developers that more improvements are still needed. Keep in mind this app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use.

A Large Amount of Content

One area the Civil War America’s Epic Struggle app isn’t suffering in is in the content as there is no shortage of information. What’s interesting about the content is the fact you’re given such a wide variety of media. It's a wonderful way to find such a large variety without having to spend time searching online for all of it. In that sense the app really excels. Some of the key battles this app covers are Bull Run, Fort Sumter, Gettysburg, West Virginia, and New Orleans.
