    Not what I was expecting (after reading the description). Weak content.
  • Half good or half bad?

    The good: Some of the maps are very high res. Doesn't crash. The bad: The app is not designed for retina displays (the images are pixelated. The whole maps do not fit to screen. The longer dimension gets cut off. The Chinese maps are not translated. It would be nice to at least have some of the text. Not all the maps are high enough res, on most of them the smallest text cannot be read.

    Good idea, but a bit light on content. The time-line slider is nice, just needs more detail for more years.
