Achinos, Greece, 08 May 2012: A new app for iPhone and iPad called “Greece: History and Culture” is now available in the App Store.

About the creators: The app was created by two Greek brothers, Tassos and Dimitris Voulgaris. The two brothers, frustrated by the international image of Greece due to the economical crisis, decided to create this app in order to show to the world a different face of Greece. Why the app is not free then? All of our time is dedicated to the growth of this app and it would be impossible to create this app and evolve it, if we didn’t charge for it.

Tassos is a software developer and Dimitris an archaeologist and historian of arts, so between them there was the perfect blend needed for an amazing app to be developed. About the app: Take 350,000 years of Greek History in your pocket. The app will help you explore the History of Greece in depths and its suitable for history enthusiasts, researchers, students, teachers, second and third generation Greeks, and of course it is a must have, if you are travelling to Greece!
