Windows phone? You really are loving in the past. There's a reason no one builds apps for it.

Whoops. "living in the past."

I LOVE my windows phone and I'm equally excited there's an app for that.

Wonderful initiative. Keep up the good work guys!

Just wanted to say that I am really enjoying the APP....it's great to be able to read the articles on my phone in a beautiful and easy to use format!!!

Why does the app require access to microphones and cameras?

aprilholloway's picture

The camera feature allows people to take photos, for example of ancient sites or artifacts, and upload them to the site, in forum postings etc. or send them through the contact form. The microphone must be a default setting of the App software provider, as there is no feature requiring a microphone.

when will be published for WP?

Hi Bengu. Our Windows app has already been submitted to Windows Store. We are just waiting for them to publish it! We will send an email once this is done.

Hi Angie, login through the app is not supported yet. But once you get to the stage to comment then you login to the site through the app.

I also had a question about logging into my account via application. Are you saying that I am free to read articles and watch videos but when I want to comment on something the app will prompt me to sign in via the website and the comment that I post via the app will be posted under this account?

Is there an ap for/does this work with the new kindle fire 7?

ancient-origins's picture

Hi Steve. No there is not an app for Kindle Fire yet. However since there is for Android, maybe the app works for Kindle Fire too??

 

 

 

You can actually use the Android app with no issues onAmazon fire. Using it myself for this post... App or site FYI.

Art Relics Shed Light on Mysterious Ancient Civilization
A society still silent and secreted beneath the earth of the Himalayas, the earliest civilization associated with Hindu/Indian art history is the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). This society is dated approximately to 2600-1900 BC, and the sites of importance were Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa.

Opinion

The 130-million-year-old fossil.
In 2016, a telephone interview with an artefact collector led me to uncover a scientific conspiracy of Biblical proportions. Professors are the high priests of our technology driven society, but as you will see, sometimes the letters behind their names serve only to disguise a highly unscientific hidden agenda.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
