WW2 Daily on the iPhone and Android

October 6, 2009, 12:41 pm

WW2 Daily answers two fundamental questions:

  • What happened today in World War Two?
  • Where did it happen? Show me a map!

New in 1.5 - iOS 4.0 & new artwork.

A lite version version is available free, which only supports today's date and shows 5 daily cards.

Flip through daily cards showing important events leading up to and during the most deadly and perhaps most significant conflict in human history.

Each card shows the date, a succinct description and a zoomable map for the event. You can flip the card over to read the Wikipedia article describing the event.

You can sort your deck of events using two mechanisms:

  • Sort by day and month for a this day in history view.
  • Select a start date and then sort by day, month and year for a true chronological sequence of events from that date onwards.

The data for WW2 Daily comes from the World War Two Timeline Project. This is a community contributed project to collect time and place data for the war. You can come to the site to browse the timeline or even log in and contribute new data.

The Timeline Project currently indexes almost 800 hundred data points with new entries being added daily. If a significant event isn't in the database yet, it soon will be.
