Interesting details and pictures!

As a history teacher in the Ottawa area, I was excited to learn about this app. I love the photos and the explanations of events that aren’t too detailed but provide enough information to explain the stories. The way information is geo-linked to a map of Ottawa is fun as well—I will definitely use it when I take students on field trips downtown!

Interesting but not optimized for all devices

Really interesting content, includes a lot of information about the city’s history that I had no knowledge of.

Poorly optimized for iPhone SE, information is cut off on the margins of some pages, as if the sliders are the wrong width. Photo caption box is small and requires a scroll just to finish reading and then further scrolling for page content. Would probably use more frequently if not for these spacing issues, which substantially impact usability.

Great app! Very informative!

This app is an easy way to discover the history of your neighbourhood without leaving your couch. Browse the map to learn about events that happened close by or further away in Ottawa. I love using it when I only have a few minutes to spend on my phone.
