Developed and produced by Multieducator, the app is aimed to educate students about the American Revolution, citing a New York Times report about just how bad U.S. students are when it comes to history tests.
The graphics aren't entirely impressive, but maybe (hopefully) they'll get better in another release. Nevertheless, the Revolutionary War app does have plenty of information about major players and battles, detailed maps and even some myths, which might prove fun for sharing around a campfire.
The Revolutionary War app is available to download from the iTunes App Store for the iPad (and the iPhone and iPod touch) for $4.99 now.
If the Revolution isn't your favorite American war, then there's always A&E's popular Civil War app for $7.99!
