(NEW YORK) — Want to bone up on your presidential trivia ahead of November’s election? There’s an app for that!
The Disney American Presidents: Unofficial Oval Office Scrapbook app, released in early October, gives users the chance to flip through a digital scrapbook in order to learn about the lives and times of our 44 U.S. presidents. (Disney is also the parent company of ABC News.)
Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide, says the app, born out of The American Presidents DVD series and mapped to national social studies curricula for grades 3 through 8, is a way to bring the use of digital and mobile devices together with education, especially as children are learning about the elections.
However, it’s not for children only. There are adult sensibilities here too. One of the contributors to the app, Chris Regan, is a comedian who used to write for the Daily Show.
The app costs $3.99 and is available for the iPad.
