Book lovers links 5/5
Beautifully crafted app that brings a literary experience alive
WOW! Talk about going back in time.
Thank you for this fine app! Well done!
This is one of the most entertaining and informative applications on my ipad. In my opinion, this is a must for any history buff especially if your focus is 20th century history.
Blah, one Time Use App 2/5
I suppose it would be unrealistic to expect more pictures due to the era, but as beautiful as this app is you browse it once and never again. It's boring and lacks detail. I for one, was looking for extensive information on inventions debuted at the fair.
One word WOW!!! 5/5

This is how an app should look and operate simply AMAZING
Get it without hesitation it becomes a paid app
Will only open from App Store 4/5
The icon for the app has gone dark and will not open. To open I have to go to my purchased list in the App Store. It opens fine there, but something is wrong with it.
Amazing app! 5/5
Love the update. Thank you!!
Need more apps like this 5/5
Interactive multimedia display of an important moment in an era from original source materials.
A virtual museum and library. Great work. Please give us more of these.
That's all -- just WOW!!
One of the most beautiful apps ever 5/5
This is a wonderful app for fans of books, history and the 1930's era. Packed with pictures and content, it contains a fascinating archive of the 1939 world's trade fair in NYC.
A real jem!
Dynamite app! 5/5
This is a comprehensive visit to an America of not that long ago, which takes you to an era where TV and easy "long distance" phone conversations were only an emerging dream, war was on the horizon, and cell phones and other things we take for granted today had not even been thought of. Well worth exploring.
I am dying to see more Biblion apps. This was one of my first downloads when I got my ipad, but I still find myself coming back to it. Well-designed, but it doesn't let the style outweigh the substance and the sheer amount of content.
Great App! 5/5
This app is very interactive in some of the most creative ways! I enjoy using this innovative learning tool a lot.
Invaluable research tool 5/5
By Extra P.
While researching the 39-40 World's Fair for a manuscript, I stumbled across this app. It has been invaluable in filling out my historical research, and it is beautifully designed. The layout is intuitive and easy to navigate. Excellent app.
Really Nice 5/5
Well organized and easy to navigate.
Download This App 5/5
This app is nothing short of amazing. Not only is it evocative of the time and place, it shows just what a web page can be. I'm a mystery writer and the stories here are worth reading; I'm a librarian and the information here is staggering. Quit reading this review, download it and you'll see.

Biblion is a great app. I enjoy spending time reading its treasure trove.
More, More, More!!! 5/5
I love the Biblion apps!!! They are amazing. Stunning! Beautiful! These are a treasure trove. Please produce more. I read about these in an article about the top 100 apps. By far the Biblion apps are my most favorite.

Biblion World's Fair 4/5
By Genealogist on the go
I have enjoyed this app; have gone back to it several times.
I would like to be able to see other exhibits as well.
I love this app, it is well laid out and provides tons of information. I would love to see the other events portrayed in the same manner--for instance the Seattle worlds fair.
Excellent use of technology 5/5
This interactive format is fantastic. And the content is great. A fun look back in the past to an event looking towards the future.
Worlds Fair Land of the Lost 5/5
An amazing, rich and fulfilling document to the wonders and imagination of an incredible era of hope and achievement.
How did we screw is up so badly.
Free and Wonderful! 5/5
This and the Frankenstein app are both fantastic. If you enjoy browsing through historic stories and photographs, this is for you.
This is great 5/5
And to be honest: Every time I opened this wonderful time machine I wonder how it is possible that it is free... What a great look back in time, absolutely marvelous. Thank you for this piece of history!

Biblion NYC World's Fair, 1936 5/5

Yeah Biblion! 4/5
Intriguing history in a 21st Century box. Well done!
This is how an app should be like. A perfect education and entertainment tool. Loved every bit!
A Great App 5/5
I find this to be an incredible educational app. The information is clearly detailed and full of information, pictures, and stories. I would surely like to see more of these types of apps in the App Store from New York Public Library.
Outstanding presentation 5/5
Amazing graphical presentation of information. Very educational and interesting.
Great app.... You get a lot of great info on the worlds fair and more interesting as to what they thought the future would be in the past

Great app 5/5
One of my favorite apps. Highly recommended
Incredible depth of content, interesting and enjoyable presentation.
A model for other world-leading institutions to follow.
Historical documentation extraordinaire! 5/5
The photographs, movies, exhibits, pavilions, text, original artwork, menus and other items too numerous to mention make this one of the most captivating apps and a history lesson from a great time in our culture. The contrasts from then, and now, are incredible. Everything from gadgets to fashion, celebrities and common folk. This app provides hours of enjoyment and perspective. Loved the time capsule placement movie with your 'average American family', the water shows and the risqué acts that were apparently acceptable Fair entertainment at the time!
My jaw drops 5/5
What an absolutely beautiful way to learn, to remember, and to honor our past.
