You will discover a lot of 3D objects and watch how the city changes through the course of time right in front of your eyes. The program is separated into two sections.

So if you are looking for a new and impressive way to explore the history of this powerful civilization, this is the best choice for you .
2. Pyramids 3D
From the ancient city of Rome, we move to another mystical civilization. Everybody loves stories about the famous Egyptian pyramids and tombs. Now you can go on an interactive 3D tour of Giza Plateau. The program allows you to take a look at the Great Pyramid, Great Sphinx, as well as a large number of tombs, And the best part is that all you need to do is sit in your couch and enjoy. You can move from one chamber to another, rotate and zoom all the objects in the gallery and read the descriptions. Unfortunately, this is the largest app in our list â?? 1.4GB and it is not free. Its price is Â£9.99 (or $13.99 ). But it is definitely worth it.
3. Today in history
This application is available not only for iPad, but also for iPhone and iPod touch. And it is absolutely free! We know what you think â?? there are so many ‘today in history’ apps. How is this one any different? The truth is that most of the other ‘today in history apps’ tend to be Anglo-centric and many people with a bit wider interest find them pretty useless. This one offers you over 100,000 historical events from all over the world. The description of each of the events is no more than a couple of sentences long. However, if you want to get some further information, just tap the event and you will be given a list of information sources, such as Wikipedia or some other reliable website.
