    "Fun and user-friendly, if a little light on depth. I feel it's mostly for kids and people who like their information short and sweet. The design is pretty though, and really fun to see. I loved just flipping through the pages, browsing random facts and I can see it could be a great educational tool. Have a look!"

    "History Here is a great app, but it's not really for learning about US history. It's more like a companion app for tourists visiting historic sites, so it's best to look elsewhere if you want a more comprehensive history app."
