With over 1 million apps in Apples App Store you think there would be hundreds of medieval apps. Sadly that\’s not the case. Most of the medieval themed apps fall into the game category. However there are a few that are educational. I have reviewed some of them for you on this site. Medieval travel, books and game apps are all available in the iTunes store and more are added daily. If you happen to have an Andriod device there are still medieval apps available, just not as many.
There were a few medieval themed PC/Console games released this year as well.
Here are a few of the apps reviewed on Medieval Archives:
- History in an Hour(Website): I reviewed The Medieval Anarchy by Kaye Jones but it doesn\’t appear to be available anymore. However you can still get 1066 in an Hour.
- Rama(Website): The Rama travel app is for all historians. It offers history based tours of sites and time periods all across the world. I reviewed Medieval Glastonbury, Medieval Exeter and Medieval Winchester. All are excellent!
- Timeline Battle Castle(iTunes Link): Hot off the heels of the Battle Castle documentary comes the Timeline Battle Castle app. I posted a full review last week. It is a must-have app!
- Sims Medieval(iTunes link): Sims Medieval is a Sim game based in the middle ages. The review was posted earlier this year. While the game wasn\’t outstanding it was OK. They have now reduced the price from $2.99 to $0.99. It might be worth a buck…
I wasn\’t able to review the PC/console based games that came out this year. Two of the better ones (at least from other reviewers) are below.
War of the Roses
Chivalry Medieval Warfare
