Clio - Your Guide to History
By Clio Foundation
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Named after the ancient Greek muse of history, Clio puts history at your fingertips. With your permission, Clio picks up your present location and guides you to landmarks, museums, and historic sites. It also acts as a virtual time machine, allowing a user to see images and videos and hear and read about historic events that happened around them. We are adding new features including interactive walking/driving tours and push notifications coming soon.
Because Clio is free, it depends upon people like you who care about history and culture. If you would like to help, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org We are working to provide new features like push notifications and interactive walking tours thanks to donations and other forms of support. The Clio Foundation is recognized as a public charity under IRS code 501c3 and all donations are tax deductible.
With several hundred new entries and improvements being added each month, Clio is not only a website and smartphone application, but also a collaborative research, interpretation, and map-building project. Museum professionals, scholars, and their students contribute most of Clio’s content. We also depend upon local history experts and museum volunteers who often know more about local history than anyone else. Each day, this partnership of local history experts and professional historians is building a comprehensive, dynamic, and interactive map of American history.

Improvement to content pages on the slide-out menu. New features including interactive walking/driving tours and push notifications coming soon.
I LOVE CLIO!!!
This app is amazing! Downloaded it while I was on a road trip and it led me to places I didn't even know I was looking for! I usually do research ahead of time, so I was shocked to find all of the places Google didn't mention. I also used it when I returned home and learned about places I never knew existed! 10/10 would recommend!!!!
Road trips just got educational:)
I think we have been using this app for about a year-it's been very helpful both in finding places I knew I wanted to see and discovering others near those places I would have otherwise missed. If you like history you will LOVE this app.
I actually heard the creator of the app on the radio today driving to work in Huntington WV. Thought id check it out. It doesn't disappoint. Even if your not a big history buff, it's good to know of significant events in history that may have occurred down the street from your house.
