Move Around the Globe

Rather than just read through a textbook in the traditional sense to learn about world history, here's a way to feel immersed and engaged in what you're learning. The World History Atlas HD with 3D app is really a beautiful visual experience. Here you can move around the app and zoom in and pinch different timelines that will then transport you to that moment in history. The way it works is that you slide it in order to go where you want and you'll see the maps change right before your eyes.

The app was updated back in the summer with a helpful tutorial that takes users through all the basics. The summary articles and top level of the maps were cached so that users were able to perform more functions in offline mode, the timeline became cleaner, and the overall look of the app was enhanced. The app has three out of five stars from users who have left some mixed comments. They love the concept and idea of the app, the maps are well received, and the app is simple to use. Where people would like to see some enhancements made is in the quality of the photos and the user-friendliness of some of the tools.

Brushing Up on History

With the World History Atlas HD with 3D app you'll be able to read about events, read a variety of articles that discuss historical items, and view a large number of images. You'll find the sliding bar along the bottom of the screen will help you move through the time periods so you can get pretty specific about what it is you want to see/read about. These historical events/moments have a great deal of information tied to them that you can read about so I definitely think this app proves to be quite useful. I would have to agree with users though it would be nice to see a bit more polishing and possibly more content in a variety of mediums.
