When it comes to apps, Apple's iOS platform offers access to an incredible amount of them. That being said, there are always some which stand out from the rest, one of these being Ken Burns' new, beautifully designed iPad application. But there's more behind its stunning visuals: The Ken Burns app is also, most importantly, loaded with a ton of content related to American history. Once installed, you can view scenes from different Burns' films (like Baseball or The War), as well as select a theme that you're most interested in -- Art, Innovation, Politics, War, to mention a few. It's available now as a free download, but be prepared to shell out $10 in order to unlock the app's full potential on your iPad.
