Cool app
« on: September 24, 2016, 03:28:07 PM »
So we're on our last trip driving for hours through Nevada, and occasionally we pass a historic marker. Much though I was interested in what they said, we really couldn't stop at each one of these (and some pullouts didn't have room for us anyway).

So I mention to my SO, "Someone should come up with an app that has all of these historic markers on a map along with your GPS location".

Well, turns out someone already thought of it (not surprisingly). The one I downloaded is called "Markers". Two bucks. Works great.

A very similar app is available called "history here" which tracks your location on the map and points out places of historical interest.
I'll check out "markers" as well. Looks interesting.

Very cool, thanks for the tip. Will have to try it on the next trip
