It’s been 100 years since the Titanic sank (April 1912). That historic passenger liner took thousands of hours by thousands of workers to build. In apparent recognition of that tragic day in history, National Geographic has released an iPad app where users can “travel back in time” to witness the construction of the epic and tragic passenger liner.
Building Titanic allows users to control the playback timeline of the Titanic and explore the construction interactively with over 50 in-depth points of interest. The app boasts that it includes 100 “rare” photos that detail the assembly of the ship. The app includes video of the laborers that built the ship in action. Users will also have access to previews of the upcoming documentaries about the Titanic on the National Geographic Channel from James Cameron and Bob Ballard.
Building Titanic is an iPad-only app and is free on the App Store.
