Free App of the Week: On This Day

Starting up a new feature this week with Free App of the Week.

First up, we have the On This Day app, a free downloadable application that displays information on that day in history. Here are the features as seen on the app store:

  • Display Events, Birth and Death dates
  • Quickly select a specific calendar date
  • Shake your device to reload the current day
  • Open entries in the Articles Wikipedia App or Safari
A great app for history and social studies teachers, who are looking for quick and easy ways to incorporate the past into the present with their students. I can see endless uses for this app in daily warmups, homework, and even research projects. The screenshots below really highlight how this app works, by displaying major historical events for the particular day, as well as providing detailed information on each event:
