American Presidents Life History ($0.99)

Where better to start than with the history of every American president at your fingertips, including their official portraits and signatures.

Aside from a day off work or school (hooray!), President's Day allows all Americans to reflect on the politics and personalities of those who have guided the nation through prosperous and perilous times. Accordingly, the army of developers contributing to Apple's App Store for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch offer a wide selection of applications offering educational and entertaining opportunities to beef up your knowledge of our Founding Fathers, current leaders and the history of the U.S. political system. Some of these apps take a more fun approach to the material, with quizzes and other games. Others, particularly those that provide one-click access to historical documents and data, can serve as a handy reference tool for your next research paper or Presidents Day history debate. To top it off, many of the apps listed here are free or cost less than a dollar-how American.
