App Name: Timeline Eons
What does it promise? The app’s name is Eons, and that is exactly what it offers. This is a searchable timeline of the entire history of everything.
Does it deliver? It is a bold undertaking to get literally “everything” into a single app, but Timeline Eons does a good job of it. The editable time range spans trillions of years into both the past and the future, covering wide-ranging events from the Big Bang and evolution, to historical events and future projections.
The app marks important dates and events with concise and fun facts featuring links to additional external resources. Additionally, an optional RSS updates so that subscribers automatically receive information about new events.
Can I use it in my classroom? Topics covered include Natural History, World History, U.S. History, Science & Technology, Art & Architecture and Sports, so this app can work in almost any class to provide historical context, or educated guesses as to the future of a particular area.
All apps can be found in the iPad apps store under education.
