The Bygone Days Story

When he wasn't herding sheep, John Penor spent the first half of the 20th century taking pictures of life in Bison, South Dakota. He recorded everything from sandlot baseball and amateur rodeo to simple scenes of family life on the farm. One day, John's photographs were boxed up and forgotten. Fifty years later, John's grandnephew, acclaimed photographer Steven Sebring, stumbled across the box of photos on the old family homestead. As he delicately examined the photos, Steven realized that he had discovered a time capsule from a lost era. Awed by their exceptional beauty, Steven compiled John's photos and created Bygone Days, a never-before-seen journey into the past.

With cutting-edge technology and exquisite design, the Bygone Days app sets a new standard for the app experience. View John Penor's photography on a stunningly crisp display. Delve into history with newspaper articles from the period. Examine homestead relics from every angle with 360° renderings. Watch newsreels of the era's great achievements. Listen to exclusive audio tracks, including legendary artist Patti Smith's interpretation of "days, bygone, " as well as an original "Bygone Days" theme by renowned musician, Lenny Kaye.

Bygone Days is not only a multimedia experience, but membership into a community. Through the app's dynamic social interface, you can enter a conversation, engage with the material, and celebrate America's heritage with readers across the country. Discuss John Penor's photos in real time. Communicate with author Steven Sebring. Share your passions. Tell tales. Ask questions. Make your own contribution to the story. In the telling and the retelling, the sharing and the commentary, the Bygone Days app provides an expansive, ongoing experience that is memorable in its own right.

Bygone Days is the story of a single family. It is the story of an entire nation.

Bucked-off!

:
Not much bang for the buck and really no great historical photos or info. What a let down. Save your money.

5/5 stars

A treasure chest! Beautiful photos, rare historical films, and artifacts. Patti Smith readings?

:
I've grown to love this app and recommend it. I am an American history fan but been frustrated by many other (more expensive!) history app's that over promise and under deliver. This app is great, once you get through it. The photo's are seriously beautiful and beautifully displayed. There are amazing archival historical films. The documentaries on Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments are not to be missed - they are gems and a main reason to buy the app. The developers were smart to embed and not stream them. I found several audio readings by Patti Smith (yes, that Patti Smith) which, although random, are really interesting. Tons of rare maps and historical items. You'll spend a lot of time with this app discovering stuff. But, users must read the opening tutorial. I made the mistake of skipping it. Don't. There is a lot of great stuff inside the app that seems a bit buried. A few bugs but nothing too bad. At this price, I think its an excellent buy for anyone interested in history.

4/5 stars

gorgeous pictures if that's what you're looking for

:
I love the pictures though I wouldn't quite call this a book, as there isn't much text besides the flavor text for each picture and short snippets here and there. There are some wonderful recreations of classic documents and newspaper clippings which are quite a treat. For me it's worth the money, though there are a few bugs in the current version (I couldn't listen to all of one of the interviews as it cut out) and the one song that the app includes loops forever, making me feel a bit loopy. But all in all, worth it for the photography and pleasant presentation.
