Cool App, but needs a little work.
This is a great app with wonderful potential, but it seems to have limited info still and needs a little more work to get some kinks out.
I tried to submit a place, but the process was very buggy. I had to flip back and forth between a web browser, note pad and History Here to get all the info typed in and it would sometimes crash between switches before I could get all the info loaded. In addition, it kept reverting the location to my address rather than the one I was typing in, even though I never hit the "use my current location" button. It would not allow me to paste anything into the "historical significance" field, but I finally figured out that it was because my description had a return in it and the field must not accept a return character. Once I made it one long, giant paragraph, I was able to paste. Otherwise, it seems to be a nice app and I think I'll have fun exploring.
Very cool to find some places nearby that I never knew were there.
Works great on the Apple Watch too. But I get quite a few alerts...
My only complaint is it KEEPS REMINDING me about the SAME places over and over. I live by a few and can’t tell you how often it reminds me. I have the app set to ‘always' but that only appears to show you updates no more than once every 30 minutes, if I turn it off, I don’t get to see interesting places 29 minutes from my house since it won’t alert me again. I’d like to mark locations with a don’t remind me about this place for at least a year (or never!). Or geofence off some areas to not alert me about (I think I’d like to mark items off as never more than specific aareas).
History Here is a great find for great finds!
First of all, for those with critical review because of missing locations? Please make informative submissions so we can all share!! I've found a place or two that wasn't in the app and submitted with detailed location and photos; hope they were considered and added.
That being said, without fail, I use this app everywhere I go and find very interesting places I would've otherwise missed, without a doubt. I highly recommend this app. Yes, needs work and more locations, but let's all put into it; it's free and we can help each other to discover!
Thanks History Channel.....looking for future updates!
