Embedded in the historic facade of Chicago’s Tribune Tower is a world-tour of famous monuments and highlights of history. On one extreme, a 4600-year-old building block once supported pharaohs as part of the Great Pyramid of Giza. On the other, a twisted steel beam memorializes the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Along the way, visitors experience pieces of the Great Wall of China, the White House, the Kremlin, Notre Dame, the Taj Mahal, the Alamo, Westminster . . . In all, 150 stones cover all 50 states and 37 countries along with a piece of Antarctica and a rock from the Moon! *currently temporarily removed from display. Using a sleek custom panoramic locator, this app guides visitors to the collection, provides details, background information, search, and beautiful images of the stones and the buildings to which they once belonged.
Version 1.1 contains an improved help overlay, an updated loading image, and new introductory text on the information screen.

Planning a trip to Chicago next week and I was searching for apps. Found this app and wanted to check it out. Didn't know Tribune Tower had rocks from many interesting locations around the globe even from the moon. Great app with lots of useful information. Highly recommended.
If you are into rocks like me this app is for you. Definitely get this app if you are planning a trip to Tribune Tower which showcases more than 140 rocks from all around the world. You'll love it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
