About this app

This is the free version of this application. The full version has no ads and has twice as many historical events in its database.
Learn world history from the beginnings of civilization through 1900! This app helps you learn hundreds of key events thoughout world history. Learn World History contains two quizzes in one app. First, you can get a sense of the order of historical events by using the “Which Came First” quiz, in which you choose the first of two events to happen. Then learn exact dates with the “When Did It Happen” quiz, where you have to identify a specific year when an event occurred.

The quizzes can be customized to a specific date range, allowing you to focus on the time period that is most important to you. The quizzes can also be limited to one of three subject areas: Warfare and Politics; Science and Exploration; or Arts and Culture. There is also a difficulty setting which controls how far apart the events are (in “Which Came First”) or how far apart the answer choices are (in “When Did It Happen”).

To study, there is a History Browser which shows events in order, with optional color-coding by subject area.

I have used this app for years, and it's always worked. Love the bright colors, and the info is very interesting. Also enjoy the quizes, and the app uses very little MB.

When I was at school, history just seemed to be an endless list of dates. Only later did I discover how interesting history really was. This app contains a seemingly endless list of dates and what happened on that date. You're then asked questions about those dates. It's a nice interface but the questions just remind me of school - shame really.

This is a good point, but this app isn't meant as a replacement for history books. I wrote this to help organize history in one's mind and put things that you may have read about or heard about into a sequence, and to help relate them to each other, so as to know what things were happening at about the same time.
