Daily Mail
“Who needs books with apps like this? For the price of a paperback you get a day-by-day history of WWII that brilliantly combines text, maps, photos and archive film.”

"The app is impressive, centred around a timeline of more than 2,000 events during the war, a dynamic map, and Snow's own commentary on the Pathé videos."

History Today Magazine
"Timeline WW2 is one of the most impressive history apps we've seen yet, and has set the bar very high."

Independent on Sunday
"The ultimate guide to the ultimate conflict.."

"Timeline World War 2 stands out with features that put history in context....it is absolutely gorgeous...Features like a scrollable map, updated audio for newsreel footage, and day-by-day layout of information...create an app that really stands apart."

TUAW App Review (The Apple Unofficial Weblog)
"It's a groundbreaking application.....It's beautiful, it's expansive, and it's a great demonstration of what the iPad can do at its best."

Note: The app contains a large amount of content, and is slightly over 1GB in size, so may take some time to download. This free version of the app is fully functioning, and allows access to content covering just the first two months of the war. The rest of the Timeline WW1 content can be unlocked with a single in-app purchase. Video content within the app requires a wi-fi connection to view. Note: some film archive within the app has no audio.
