What's New in Version 1.1
Twenty new photos added!
I am sure as more people find this it's popularity will grow exponentially. Great for remembering walking tours with my grandpa. If we had this technology when he was around he could of the largest "cloud" collection of junk to go with the warehouse. Absolutely love it. Thanks a million.
Must Have For Tulsans!
This is a fantastic app! I love the overlay feature that let's you send people old/new comparisons!
