Today’s Document 1.03
I love this app! I teach American History and I used this app on my iPad in one of my classroom lectures. The kids thought it was really cool.
Wonderful selection of documents in a really nice interface.
Very cool, kind of buggy
This is an awesome way to open the National Archives to the tablet-toting public. Great selection of documents - very engrossing! Applause to NARA.
A few bugs:
1. Selecting the info box multiple times opens multiple info boxes. It is not initially clear that the way to close the info box is to tap another part of the screen.
2. Zooming into the document is very difficult - pinching/spreading changes the whole page, not just the pane with the doc, and I can`t pan around the zoom easily.
3. This isn`t a bug, but I was surprised that swiping right took me to future docs of the day. Swipe left to go to the past.
4. Needs transcription!!!!
