History to launch first paid iPhone app


It will be for both iPhone and iPod Touch, and based on the series Ice Road Truckers (www.history.com/iceroadtruckers) that allows users to command huge 18-wheelers across the icy Arctic roads. A free “light” version is currently available worldwide in Apple’s iTunes stores and has been downloaded more than 680,000 times worldwide, with nearly 350,000 of those downloads in the US.  The paid version of the app, launching June 28th for $3.99, will offer players more game options with the ability to choose different routes, trucks, loads and more.
