Quick Look: American Presidents for iPad

image

 

Who was the 27th President of the United States? Who was the President when the 24th Amendment was ratified? What was the Volstead Act and Who was the President when it was signed? Who was the President when the United States Supreme Court decided Plessy v. Ferguson? If you are an American history buff, like me, then this is the app you want to download. In fact, calling this app American Presidents is a dreadful misnomer, as it contains so much more than that. This app would be better called A Treasure Trove of Trivia About American History and Presidents…or something like that.

If you got school kids mildly to severely uninterested in math, this is a clever way to get them interested. Read on for more review comments and info on the app...
