Looks good-needs update


I used this awhile ago-it worked but could be a lot better. It does not look like it's been updated-hope they will do so.

Great APP for ANYONE interested in Georgia History

Great APP for teachers, students, families, and anyone interested in Georgia History. Good tool to use on school fieldtrips and family/community outings, and it's FREE. Well done!

Crashes and limited info


Most of the entries appear to simply copy the text of a marker, and the app usually crashes after a few minutes. HistoryHere, Clio, and What Was There work much better and have more info.
