WWII News


WWII News is a minimalist Android app, which shows hand-picked World War II related headlines - and links to the articles.

How it works: Opening the app starts the update process. Just click on a headline to open up the corresponding article on your default browser.

FEATURES:
+ Direct links to the articles, which are opened in the default browser.
+ Hand-picked links to the best sources which provide most information and photos (We all hate autogenerated garbage).
+ The website (cloudworth.com) providing the information has posted WWII knowledge since 2005.
+ Just the noteworthy news, no information overload.
+ Minimalist: No battery consuming background processes - Just open the app to get the news.
+ The app lists the 20 latest WWII news entries, for the full categorized archive go the source website.


Great app for history buffs, teachers, historians, and anyone interested in learning more about the Second World War - and keeping their knowledge up-to-date. Don't miss WW2-related discoveries - tanks, wrecks, historical documents - which are still being made regularly today. Topics include pretty much everything WWII related: From the treasure hunters seeking the lost Nazi gold to the fierce battles on the Russian Eastern Front, and from the re-enactments, militaria and uniforms to the Hitler's Third Reich.
