Myths and Legends Review
by on August 28, 2011
We bet that many, many, many moons ago, when our ancestors used to sit around camp fires all over the world, telling stories to one another of gods and dragons and such, someone thought: ‘There should be an app for that’.
Well, all those moons later, here it is on Windows Phone 7, and it’s pretty informative. There’s everything from Incan to Japanese to Greek mythology on offer, with between four and ten tales on offer for all the categories.
The layout is all olde worlde and such, which makes us feel like we’re properly learning history – although it’s annoying to have to open a story then click again to see past the first paragraph.
You can share it to Facebook if you want to out yourself as a closet mythology nerd, although we suggest you use the video feature instead of the text offering. Most of the stories are written a little simplistically, yet there are videos which explain it in much more detail for many of them.
If you’re just interested in mythology as a passing fancy, then you should definitely check out this application – although it errs on the side of simple.
