Timeline Creation App for iPad

28 Mar

Last week I was walking down the hall and saw a group of students working on a timeline for their Biology class.  They had a large white sheet of paper (about 6 feet long) and they were measuring out a distance of time on it and adding significant events.  As I got back to my desk I thought to myself “there has to be a great iPad app out there that can do this in a more meaningful way.”  After searching for just a short time I discovered a great App: 3DTimeline.  Although this App is $9.99 it is well worth it for the ease of use and the professional looking product that gets created when you are finished.  Because students can add images and video to their timelines it can be used as a standalone project or as part of a larger presentation.  (In the end it almost has a Prezi feel to it)

Major Features:

Easy to edit:  As you can see in the image below, the ability to add new events and information about that event is very intuitive.

Timeline creates a beautiful finished product that can be viewed in either 3D within the app or sent our of the App as a PDF.
