iPhone app tells of area landmarks
If you are one of those die-hard Texas history buffs who want to know all about the area of Texas you happen to be traveling in…..I’ve got some good news for you. There is an App for that!
The App is available for the iPhone and is easy to find in The App Store.
Real Texas Blog readers might be interested in an app that lets them discover more real Texas History. The Texas Historical Landmarks app gives you access to detailed historical information to over 14,000 historical markers designated by the Texas Historical Commission.
The developers built this app because when driving through Texas, They always wondered what a historical marker on the side of the road said. As with the rest of us, they didn’t always have time to stop and look at each marker. They decided to build this app to answer that question and to help educate people about our state’s rich history.”
The app provides an easy to use map interface that allows you to pinpoint what historical markers are close to you, retrieve driving directions to each marker, keep a tally of the markers you have visited, and even record photos at each visited marker. While traveling, you even have the ability to receive notifications anytime you are closing in on a landmark.
I bought the App myself and use it often in our new surrounding area here in Helotes and throughout San Antonio.
Texas Historical Landmarks is currently available in the app store at:
