Overview

Today In History is a multimedia calendar app that displays historical events for the current day or for any selected day. This Day In History is the easiest, most efficient and, we believe, the overall best way for you to get the historical information that you want whenever you want it. As soon as you open up this application, you are shown all of the major events that happened on that day over the past years. Indeed, here at Iconosys, we are dedicated to sharing information relating to world history, and to helping you to personalize history in a way that enables you to organize and identify the "historical" events and other information that are most significant or meaningful to you.

This new app utilizes a bubble text function that provides the user with interesting pieces of explanation and other details relating to historical events or occurrences that you might not otherwise be aware of. For example, did you know that Vermont was an independent republic for 14 years before becoming a state, and that George Washington at one point considered sending troops to overthrow the Vermont government? Perhaps this context accounts for and explains the state's motto of "Freedom and Unity," which was adopted before Vermont achieved statehood. Get the This Day In History app now, and experience -- and better understand!-- the people and places making each day in history famous and memorable. The journey begins here, with Iconosys, and this great new app, each and every day.

    History

    Concept is great. Background picture of Marilyn Monroe makes it difficult to read. Have not found a way to enlarge the print. Needs a little more work then it would be real good.

    Fun but with problems

    The background and teeny print are hard to read. It would be better with a solid background. However, I like the variety of events. Especially if you're a bit of a war buff, this is a good app.

    This app is for ancient history buffs. I never heard of most of the events listed. Helpful would be to include more contemporary history.
