What The App Has to Offer

This is one of the major questions that people ask before downloading the app. The main essence for asking this question is to ensure that they do not end up downloading an app that does not deliver on its promises. Basically, the apps offer HD Snapshots of the past to give users a clear perspective of how the world looked like.

Unlike other apps, the developers have worked to compile the information and validate it before uploading to ensure that users get accurate information. For instance, the app offers snapshots of how the world transitions during World War 1 and World War 2 in chronological arrangement of events. In fact, most of the pictures were taken by professional photographers and later on edited to ensure that they appear clearly on various screen resolutions.

Despite the fact that most of the information is still fresh in the minds of most people, the pictures will add a sense on what exactly transpired between 1914, 1939, 1945, and 1969. Note that the history is not limited to this period but most of the information is based on the events that occurred at this time.

You will be forgiven to think that all the information in this app is based on war and rivalry that existed between countries. The developers have incorporated a number of development news that are less known by most people.
