In response to popular demand from history buffs, trivia lovers, knowledge seekers who own Android smartphones and tablets rather than iPhones and iPads, Downshift LLC has released an Android version of its massively popular no-cost iOS App Today in History on Google Play.

Today in History, which launched in 2009, provides users with a visual and text time capsule of what transpired on any particular day in history — everything from fascinating facts, to interesting tidbits, to “strange-but-true” trivia, and more. In total, Today in History’s database has over 150,000 historical facts, and more are added regularly by Downshift LLC staff.

Plus, users can use the app’s built-in filter to focus on specific topics or items of interests, including: top headlines, epic events, famous births, notable deaths, and holidays around the world. They can also access several Wikipedia links throughout each entry to learn more in a single tap, and enjoy the “Quote of the Day” for a daily dose of timeless wisdom from an iconic historical figure.

Other key features that have earned glowing reviews from iPhone and iPad users, and are now set to impress Android smartphone and tablet users around the world include:

> A sharp, sleek interface with crisp fonts, vivid thumbnails, and an intuitive layout designed with UX best practices in mind.
> The option to share fun and interesting facts with friends, fans and followers via Facebook, Twitter, email and text.
> The option to receive daily notifications with a rundown of the most interesting or notable happenings on that day in history.

“Today in History lets anyone turn what may otherwise seem like an ordinary day into an extraordinary one!” commented Manuel Zamora of Downshift LLC. “It’s perfect for people who want to boost their knowledge, challenge their co-workers, teach their friends and family, or simply enhance their appreciation of history and the people and events that have shaped our world and lives”.

Added Mr. Zamora: “Users have been asking us for years to create an Android version of Today in History, and after many months of hard work and testing, we’re thrilled to fulfil that promise!”
