Description

This collection of quotations from the speeches, thoughts and sayings of Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) is the only quotation app authorised by the Estate of Winston S. Churchill. Elegant and user friendly, this app helps us understand – his adventuring, military service, political career, war leadership and statesmanship aside – the key role his words played in making him a household name a lifetime ago, and a dominant figure of the twentieth century. Included are not only the greatest words of 1940, but a wealth of verifiable lines – included for their lyrical beauty and emotional impact, their ability to inspire and entertain, and their often stark relevance to modern times. This collection is evidence of Churchill’s skills as a wordsmith and orator, his love of language and the principles that made him a great communicator. And Churchill’s love of English was nowhere more agreeably expressed than in words and expressions he created—or old lines to which he gave new life. His curiosity about words produced his best creations, many of which have contributed to English lexicography.

  • Fun App but needs updating

    This is a fun app for Churchill buffs but it desperately needs to be updated for the retina and iPhone 5 displays. It just looks terrible. Some video would be nice too. Also an iPad version is needed.
  • Nice, but a bit lean.

    A nice little app. I've always been a big Churchill fan, and it's good to have his quotes (and a few speeches) in one place. Shows correlation between bio/timeline & quotes. Overall, it seems a bit lean, however, for the price.

    What a disappointment! No support for landscape viewing. No support for altering font size. Sir Winston deserves better.
  • Nice design. Slick navigation. Great content.
