• Beautiful iOS 8 optimized graphics - designed for an engaging user experience.
• Get a whole new perspective on Texas landmarks by using the “Map” feature. It zooms out far enough for you to see the whole state and drops pins on all 14,000+ landmarks.
• When you visit one of these landmarks, you can “check in” there and start a running list of all the places you’ve been to. You’ll also get “points” with each check-in. Do you love traveling? See how many points you can rack up!
• Make your own photo album by adding your own pictures of each landmark (locally stored; not shared with others).
• Create a detailed list of your favorite markers for places you’ve been or Texas sites you would like to visit.
• Toggle your settings to receive notifications whenever you’re near a landmark.
• Quickly and easily share your favorite historic sites with your Facebook friends and Twitter followers.
What's New in Version 2.5
Apple Watch App: Use our new watch app to quickly view landmarks closest to your location.
Some minor UI improvements and performance enhancements.
Feature set looks nice, but it took me all of 3 minutes to find a marker transcription with spelling and punctuation errors. Within another few minutes and the opportunity to check the listings against markers known to me, I found two instances of markers not accurately located on the map - both of which resulted in completely misleading directions, to the extent that someone searching for the markers would not have been able to find them. The ease by which I was able to find these errors suggests that this app's database has not been vetted for accuracy. The location errors are the most serious, as being able to find the markers is most likely an assumed major feature of the app.
Would love to see app optimized for iPhone 6/6+.
