That appy feeling
SINKING OF THE TITANIC (Android)
This is more of an ebook than an app. That said, we do need to stress that this app reproduces Logan Marshall's The Sinking Of The Titanic, which was written in 1912 - the very year the disaster took place - and thus captures the reaction to the sinking like no other book perhaps does. There are 29 chapters of crisp, well-written prose, covering events from the launch of the ship to its collision with the iceberg, the rescue operation and the enquiry that followed. There are no pictures and videos here (even though there are references to them), but the text is good enough to give you an idea of what happened that night and in the days that followed. The ads are intrusive and the interface could have been smoother, but Sinking Of The Titanic proves that simple words can be just as effective as jazzy multimedia and special effects.
