The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum has released a smartphone app so Illinoisans can learn more about the 16th president. It's free.

From a release:

The app lets everyone explore Lincoln facts, quiz themselves about his life, peruse pictures of his presidential museum and more.


The free app’s sound effects are the very same sounds Lincoln and his family heard in daily life. The quiz timer is a recording of Lincoln’s office clock ticking. A wrong answer triggers the clock’s gong. A right answer is greeted by Robert Lincoln’s dinner bell.

This is the perfect software you need to settle all those presidential bar bets you have.

It's available for iPhone and Android, which is no help for we history-loving Blackberry users.
