Pictures of places from my childhood in early 60
I wanted to see how much Prestwick Scotland had changed since my childhood in the early 60's. Indeed in many ways it had changed but in many ways it was still the same. I was able to see where we lived and it was an old house then, so it really is old now. The ancient church and the cemetary was still there as I expected it to be along with our boyhood friends house. But where the golf course once was, there is now homes and since the Air base was closed it has now become an International Airport. Prestwick was a beautiful town then and it still is now. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the pics of landmarks that I remember from my pre-teen years.
This is one of the first apps that I put on my computer. It always amazes and never disappoints me. I love that you can pick locations all over the globe and then travel the streets. There is also all the imformation about the places you are looking at. This is way better than an atlas. If you are a geography nerd or just want to take a look at the world you are going to love this app.
setting and overall impressions
The app needs a settings panel to set ones home site. the isde pictures are interesting but incomplete. Strange when picking a home town in Germany, it chose a nearby town. Still for the price and interest level not so bad
