Middle Earth Index

Middle Earth Index


Even as a Tolkien fanatic, it is often tough to remember all the names and places when reading his extensive works. Here is your glossary of all things Tolkien, with over 5000 entries! The perfect companion to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, or The Silmarillion.

This application is also a useful aid when watching the movies! In 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey', there are many references to things that die-hard Tolkien fans will understand, yet the casual movie-goer will not. The dwarves mention Ered Luin, Dain, and Durin. Radagast calls the spiders a "spawn of Ungoliant". Gandalf warns Radagast of the "Gundabad wargs", yet Radagast is unafraid with his "Rhosgobel rabbits". Galadriel speaks of the Witch-King of Angmar, and Rhudaur.

What is the "Desolation of Smaug" or "The Battle of the Five Armies"? How do all of these new characters, such as Thranduil, Beorn and Bard, fit in with the Middle Earth we have seen so far? These references, among others, can now be easily and conveniently understood.

Features include an intuitive categorization, search capabilities, and links for more information.

This is my first app, built purely for my own enjoyment. Even after multiple readings of The Silmarillion or Unfinished Tales, I still found it hard to remember the massive amount of information, and didn't like going online to find it, so I started designing this app. Now I have decided to share it with everyone!

Please rate, and feel free to send me constructive criticism. I am planning to continue updating the appearance, layout, and entry information.

Unattractive and dull... Two stars for the informations it provides. But reading it feels just like reading a shopping list! Totally boring. It could be presented with pictures and those beautiful middle-age font style and stuffs. Thank you very much.

Good information... Good information, but it really needs a map, preferably an interactive one.

Fantastic Fantastic. I am impressed that someone was able to put 99% of almost entirely correct Middle-Earth information into one app. There are a few minor things missing, but that makes little difference. I refer to this app all the time! Thank you.

One encyclopedia to rule them all I am a lord of the rings buff myself I even have on font on Microsoft Word to write in dwarf runes, this app goes above and beyond containing all kinds of Information. It covers everything everything except I would have liked a solid entry about the dunedain. I rate this app 5 stars and I definitely recommend it. :)
