This app is an updated version of our "Who's Alive and Who's Dead" app, but with new features and content such as photos and with better support for newer phones and tablets.
Our data base is oriented to the U.S. audience. While it does contain listings of famous folks from Canada, the U.K., and the rest of the world, the goal is to focus on people who are well-known in America. We deliberately avoid padding the data base with long-dead folks such as John Wayne, Elvis Presley, etc., so that we can bring you the best resource for keeping up people from today and the recent past.
