Review – The 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present, and Future for iPad
Intro: The 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present, and Future is an iPad app that serves to commemorate the events of that historic and tragic day and offer a unique look at the history and the planned future for the 9/11 Memorial that opens next month. The 9/11 Memorial will be dedicated on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and will open to the public on the day after, September 12, 2011...
Final words: The 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present, and Future is an impressive app. Anyone with even mild interest in the events of 9/11, the history of the Twin Towers, or the present and future vision of the 9/11 memorial will want to spend a lot of time with this app. Because the app’s creator has been closely involved in documenting 9/11 for ten years, the range of content is excellent. I could easily see this app ending up in US classrooms, as part of the materials to be used when covering 9/11 in history classes. I’ll update this post with an App Store link for The 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present, and Future for iPad when it is released on Thursday.

The 9/11 Memorial App Reminds Us, But Also Emphasizes The Future
Intro: One week from tomorrow, Americans will once again take time to reflect on the 2001 terrorist attacks, like they have each September since that beautify Tuesday morning that ended in tragedy. And, if past practice is any indication, much of that reflection will be done in public with the cameras rolling. For those looking for a more personal way to remember the events of September 11, 2001, we strongly recommend The 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present and Future app, available now for iPad...
Final words: In total, there are 400 still photographs and hours of video clips, some of which are available on Rosenbaum’s CameraPlanet archive and 2002 documentary, 7 Days in September. The 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present and Future is impressive. As such, it comes highly recommended. If there is one thing about the app worth criticizing it is the inability to view some of the videos. For whatever reason, some simply don’t work. Hopefully, this bug (or whatever it is) will be corrected soon.

Final words: The 911 Memorial, Past, Present, And Future (Free, iPad) may be the best download for your iPad you ever made, especially for free. Even at $9.99 this app is worth it in every sense of the word.
