The 9/11 Memorial App

The ten-year anniversary of the World Trade Center bombing is approaching fast and writer-director Steve Rosenbaum is preparing his 9/11 Memorial app to commemorate this occasion.

Rosenbaum made a semi-controversial decision to develop the 9/11 Memorial: Past, Present and Future app for the iPad only. Rosenbaum believes the iPad "was simply the best device on which to display it." Apple may have appreciated this exclusivity as Rosenbaum's app made it through the App Store approval process in a record 36 hours.

The 9/11 Memorial app will be free from September 1st to the 12th and will jump up to $9.95 when this promotion is over. It has hundreds of photographs and hours of video that details the event itself and the creation of Michael Arad's World Trade Center Memorial and 9/11 museum.

Wish I had an ipad so I could buy this app. Seems very interesting, and it's about something very important to all Americans and even us non Americans. Can't believe it's been ten years since 9/11. :(

It's not something I'd get, but it looks very well done.

I believe this should be handed out free.

If I had an ipad I would be getting this. It is part of history now.

i hope it's for free, because it's very fucked up to make profit out of a tragedy

Agreed with Augustin Creevy. If they do decide to charge for it, the money should be donated to the families of 9/11 victims.
