Back in Time is a great looking new iPad app released yesterday on the iPad App Store. The demo trailer above is one of the best I’ve come across, and this looks to me like a very nice educational / family app.
Here’s a slice of its App Store intro:
What were the defining moments in the History of Humankind, of Life, of the Universe itself? Back in Time is a multimedia interactive journey through those moments.
We invite you to take one step back and see the whole picture.
An imaginary clock will guide you through this quest, proposing a simple analogy: the whole Universe started 24 hours ago.
The Big Bang, source of Time and Space, is the first event in our journey – the clock marks 0:00 hours. Today, 13.7 billion years later, the clock marks midnight. In between, a sequence of key events that brought us where we are today. Explore them, place them in perspective, see how they relate, understand the consequences, and wonder what if…
This is what Back in Time is all about.
I’ve got an 8 year old daughter who is that wonderful sort of age where she is full of interest in learning about everything. I feel sure she’ll enjoy this app and I’m installing it as I type this.
