I like the app and I bought the pro version to remove ads and to customize the widget. If possible in a future update I'd like to see a feature to filter what events you'd like to see, for example, events/births/deaths from the US (only 🫣🫢),celeb or more positive events. I understand that history isn't all daises and roses. But there's a lot about ppl getting killed and wars. So it'd be nice if there were a filter that a person could turn on/off. Also more widget colors and/or font color.

Dear Monique, really appreciate your suggestion. Indeed, a filter is on our list of future improvements and you are right that it would make a lot of sense to better find the events you are interested in, more easily. For more suggestions on what to improve, for the widget also, please do not hesitate to write us at historical.calendar@gmail.com

This is a great app for all history buffs out there. I check it everyday to get my daily history lesson. The one thing i would suggest to make this app better is to add a feedback option. There are some things that I've noticed that either aren't entirely true, or the picture doesn't match the event/person. For instance, on March 2nd, for 1127, on the event of the assassination of Charles the Good, it shows a picture of Lee Harvey Oswald, which has nothing to do with it. Otherwise a great app 😁
