New to the iPad – ‘London – A City Through Time’


Fancy buffing up on your knowledge about London? This new iPad app looks to be the perfect tool to do just that.

Oscar nominated and Emmy Award winning director, Richard Loncraine (of Band of Brothers fame) has developed an iPad app called ‘London – A City Through Time’ that offers the most advanced and complete digital portfolio of London ever produced.

In an effort to reinvent Pan McMillan’s London Encyclopedia and make learning about London fun and engaging, Loncraine developed the app in partnership with the Museum of London to create an indispensable 2,000-year reference to the world’s most complex city using modern technology for a progressive audience.

Some of the key features include:

  • 6,000 full text articles on London’s cityscape
  • 2,000 rare prints including works of art, portraits, watercolours and etchings
  • HD zoomable images allowing users to view panoramas of London – both through time and today
  • Dynamic timelines detailing history from the 17th century to the present day
  • A plethora of interactive activities that both engage and educate users

You can see a demo video of the app in action below:
