I've implemented the ability to favorite individual markers and a feature to help distinguish previously viewed markers, as suggested in the reviews. If you would like to share more suggestions on how to improve the app, or if you encounter a bug, please feel free to contact me at support@kocevski.com or tweet ideas and/or comments to @MarkersApp.

Also, please note that Historical Markers aggregates data from the Historical Marker Database and the U.S. National Registry of Historic Places. If a local marker is not in either of these databases, it will not appear in the app. If you would like to add a local marker to the Historical Marker Database, please visit http://www.hmdb.org. The ability to upload marker information and pictures directly from your iOS device is coming in a future release!

Customer Reviews

The app is fixed and working great!

Looks like the v3.4 update fixed the bug that everyone has been reporting in the comments. I wrote the author last week and got an immediate response saying that he was working on a fix. Forutnetely, the update came in just in time for the 4th of July weekend! In any case, this is one of my favorite road trip apps and I can't recommend it enough. Please keep up the good work!

Works as advertised

Handy informational tool. Also, at one point there was a glitch, quick email response and problem solved.

The best of the historical marker apps!

By far the best of the historical marker apps available on the app store. Being able to see photos of the markers really sets it apart. The app is a joy to use and elegant in its simplicity!
