Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship, the Titanic app is getting ready to set sail into the App Store. Created by Britain's The History Press, the iPad app arrives on March 12. Since her maiden voyage sinking on April 14, 1912, the story of the RMS Titanic has fascinated generations of fans and researchers alike. Now, as the world prepares for the centennial of the “ship of dreams,” a new app is arriving that looks back at its history and features. The app (price to be announced) includes knowledge collected from many of the world’s leading Titanic experts. It includes rare archive footage, details and photographs of the ship’s construction, a sinking timeline and “Did You Know?” facts. Other unique features include an interactive deck plan, detailed biographies of the ship’s key features, contemporary films, narrated survivor accounts and a wide range of photographs from every stage of the ship’s life. According to The History Press’ sales and market director, Tim Davies:
”This year’s 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship is already generating huge interest and is an opportunity to maximize the value of our extensive and definitive Titanic content and to deliver it in a new way. The Titanic App looks fantastic and we’re confident that both enthusiasts and general consumers alike will enjoy it enormously.”As a fan of anything Titanic, I am looking forward to this app's release. How about you? The Titanic app arrives March 12 in the App Store.
