What is Our Times: Multimedia Encyclopedia of The 20th Century?

Narrated by James Earl Jones, and based on a best-selling book by the same name, Our Time is an interactive journey into history of the 20th Century. Containing over 50k articles, 2.5k illuarations and two hours of narration, the app breaks down the history of an entire century into digestible bits along main timeline. Most notable events both stateside and abroad have corresponding articles, essays, narrations and even videos.

P.S. Also contains world's largest1 single volume general reference encyclopedia in English, The Columbia Encyclopedia (5th ed).

P.P.S. The file titled "Our Times Installer" does not install the app itself, but only fonts required for proper rendering. Publisher strongly recommends installing them first, prior to launching app for the 1st time. Speaking of which, it is indeed possible to run it locally, simply by saving app itself (OurTimes) into same directory as its supporting folders, "Media" and "For System Folder".
