Latest reviews of Texas Historical Marker Guide app for iPhone and iPad

Great tool if you are visiting Texas.
This a thorough and indispensable guide if you live in or are planning to visit Texas. It gives you great information on almost every Texas historical landmark! It will also help you locate it on a map and lead you there. You can also take your own pictures and tie them to whatever landmark you visit. This is a great app! Thanks!!
Almost Perfect
By far, this is THE BEST of all the TX historical markers apps... If youll just add the little blue dot that shows you where you are in the map (you know what I mean-- the gps thingamajig) then this will be the ONLY one to use. Right now, its too labor intensive to flip back and forth between the map app and this app. Add that blue dot and this app will be GOLDEN!!!!
