    "The app "The Civil War Today" was created by the History Channel, and I'm happy to say: their legendary high quality educational programming transcends platform. They were able to take their American history programming and reform it into this interactive app that is interesting and highly educational. I especially enjoy the date specific special events. This is definitely a winner for the history buff. "

    "This isn't helpful at all. It's a site, not an app. I don't think that it's reliable."

    "The granddaddy of online resources and a constant companion to hundreds of thousands of people around the world. I for one end up on Wikipedia almost every day, and I always feel I have learnt something worth the time I invested. The idea of a crowdsourced encyclopedia might seem far-fetched and in the beginnings, a lot of people questioned whether it could ever be trusted as a source of information, but it has grown into an almost inevitable, and usually useful bottomless pit of knowledge about everything. Maybe not for everybody, but almost."

    "This app is not specific to American history, but it appears to be a creative and well-made history app. This should suit the needs of someone searching for this kind of app, to a large degree. Though they may look elsewhere for a focus on American history only."
