Don't buy!
When you click for more info, it just opens a Wikipedia site page. Really? I paid $4.99 for a free app? Not to mention we are always trying to teach kids NOT to trust user-edited sites. So not happy right now.

Nice Job-Use BCE and CE to be Correct!
I use this timeline to give my students (6th graders) an idea of how all of the civilizations that we study actually shared some time on the earth together. We make and study timelines, but this one does an excellent job of showing major events happening around the ancient world at the same time it's more comprehensive than we can be in our classroom time. Peeve? The accepted standard is not BC and AD. BCE and CE are used on all standardized tests. Please correct this.

Constant crashes, pinching for a readable text size doesn't work, content (in the rare instances it actually pops up) is a joke. This is a seriously flawed app. i suspect it is a clapped together con job.

When I first installed it crashed. I closed all open apps and did a reboot and now it works perfectly. Lovely app.

Wow! Information abounds. Love this...
I have been reading Susan Wise Bauer's book on ancient history and was looking for a visual aide for a snapshot view of world history....boy did I find it! Homeschoolers will love this, but it's a great history refresher for adults too! I don't know how they did it, but it's all here and I don't need to carry around a 500 page book to have access to extensive information. Thanks for a great product. I look forward to future installments! One final thought: I would love to have a mini introduction/background (maybe a tab at the top left corner of the timeline?) before diving straight into the timeline.

Perfect to explore ancient history!
I am no stranger of the product of Knowledge Quest. I have heard of them and know of the Wonders of Old Ancient Timeline. I am quite pleased to see that this wonderful homeschool product has found it’s way to the digital era. Personally I was quite excited about this app because I am planning to jump into the study of history with the kids this Spring. I had started a couple of years ago but back then I was just starting homeschooling and suddenly felt overwhelmed with it. So I put aside our history book and waited. Now I feel I can handle homeschool a little bit more and plan to re-introduce history in our schedule. With the main subject almost completed for this year, it would be interesting to study something different and explore the ancient times. So having the Wonders of Old app will also help us to be transported in the ancient times as we can observe and read about the kingdom, empires, rulers, wars, artifacts, inventions, advancements and more. While studying history with your kids, you can easily travel the timeline and find what you need. I like the way the timeline is presented. When a specific subject attract your eye, you simply have to click on it to obtain more details on it. I see that we will more than likely use this app a lot during our studies on ancient times while doing history. I find it always interesting to have images with text about something. This app is offering just this for many ages from the past and areas around the world – Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and Americas. It is complete in many aspects as it present the history in multiple areas during a certain period of time with one eye view. The app is also linked to Wikipedia for certain topics. However, I find that it is better to hold your iPad on the landscape side because when the Wikipedia windows opens it would be cut if the iPad is on the portrait side. Nevertheless, this app is wonderful to have and I am recommending it to anyone studying ancient civilizations with their students whether at school or at home.
