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.

Though you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’s still alive from the day the Titanic sank, the public’s fascination with the doomed ocean liner has only grown over the years. The Titanic has been the subject of countless books, movies, TV specials and documentaries, and now you can add a new iOS game to the mix. National Geographic and PlayWay have officially announced Titanic: Unsolved Mystery, which will provide the most interactive experience with the famed ship yet.

The game is divided between present and past as heroine Lillian explores the wreckage of the Titanic, which is now an underwater museum. Lillian’s quest is a bit of a tragic one, as her great-grandmother died when the boat sank and she would like to know more about the woman she never knew. The hidden-object gameplay is set in historically accurate recreations of the ship’s interior just as it appeared 100 years ago.

Titanic: Unsolved Mystery is slated to launch sometime in the second quarter of 2012.
