The Silent History

I’m normally not one to promote iPhone apps. I don’t spend a lot of time playing on my phone beyond email and instagram, and I never read books on the tiny little screen. But The Silent History is changing things. I downloaded the app yesterday, and after playing around with the format last night I eagerly paid for the additional content.

Released daily, the app tells a story one page at a time. As soon as I woke up this morning, I devoured the first installment. Just released, The Silent History is the first app beyond facebook that I plan on logging into every day. It tells a story of a future where people stop talking. I’d tell you more, but I’m only one page in and I can’t wait to log in tomorrow.

There is so much more to this app, including location based content you can only read / open if you’re nearby. It’s really an incredible experience.

As a side note. The app was designed and developed in a geodesic dome in Cazadero, California. If you’re looking for a new and unique experience, download The Silent History today.
