Timeline WW1 App Review
After previously reviewing Timeline WW2, we knew the WW1 edition was going to be of the same high quality. The entire layout and feel of the app fits in perfectly with the World War 1 theme – almost like you’re operating an old telegraph machine.
The app consists of a wide range of media, from videos, audio clips, photographs and article trimmings — all of which are displayed on the timeline by default. To sort through the timeline, you can change the length of time at the top, narrowing it down to years, months and even days in which events occurred. Our only niggle is that when scrolling through the timeline, you sometimes tap on items accidentally which can be a bit annoying.
There are also great search functions in Timeline WW1. You can browse through categories, and any that you select are displayed on the timeline. For example you can select Propaganda Posters and you’ll see on the timeline when each one was released, including a short description explaining the image.
Overall, Timeline WW1 covers just about everything you need or want to know about the First World War. The addition of audio clips and videos really help the app stand out amongst similarly priced paper books.
