Fun app - needs some fixes

The History Man

This is a fun and informative app to use with kids (big and small) when looking round Conwy. It's informative and draws your attention to details that you would otherwise miss it just not know what they were. My kids loved answering the questions but the answers are not actually given in the app anywhere so unless you have really good medieval historical knowledge (which I do!) you'll probably have to guess for some of the answers. The photo sharing doesn't appear to work and neither does the virtual postcard feature - it sends the email fine but the web server no longer works so the recipient gets an error page when they click on the link. It's a great little app but would be extra fun if they can fix the simple errors.

Well worth downloading

This is a very informative app about the history of Conwy. I've been going up Conwy town walls for years but this app brought to my attention a lot of things I'd never noticed.

Great little app
