More Money please's Review of Historical Markers

Reviewed on 8/30/19 2:06 PM

Downloaded this while driving through Texas/south towing our RV. The roadside historical markers were of interest but not practical to pull over for. Figured this app would be the answer, not so much. We've reached NV now and finally it has some roadside markers that show up for us to read while driving by. Needs additional roadside entries.

Speech engine terrible. Database good.

SteveinKosovo's Review of Historical Markers

The speech engine is absolutely terrible (meaning the voice you listen to which "reads" the markers out loud). It sounds like a bad 1980's version of a talking robot. Hard to understand. I realize a good speech engine may be expensive but you can't advertise "text to speech" and have it be as lousy as this. The database interaction is great, so if you travel and want to sit and read on your phone what the local markers say, then this would be fine for that. But I was hoping this would read the markers to me as I drive past them. I guess it will, but it will be painful to listen to.

Very helpful

We downloaded this app to use on a long roadtrip. I loved not having to stop at every historical marker but still getting the info. I also used it to look ahead and see if there was a reason to stop.

Fabulous fun!

Crashes whenever I press the go to current location button. Crashes if I try to swipe to a different location.

So many markers!

I’ve been really enjoying this app. I’ve been able to pull it up pretty much anywhere I’ve been in NY and learn something new about the area. I really can’t recommend this enough.

Love this app!

This was such a fun app to use during a long road trip. In addition to the Historical Markers it also gives info on many historical buildings. A wonderful source of local information.

Fantastic App!

JackKerouacWannabe's Review of Historical Markers

Reviewed on 8/30/19 2:06 PM

I'm so happy that I found this app. It's simple and works as advertised. My wife and I use it on our road trips through the Appalachians and it's become an indespensible resource for learning about local history. I've written Dan (the author) a couple of times to report bugs and always recieved a quick response. My only suggestion would be to include the ability to upload new images of markers, but Dan tells me that feature is in the works, so fingers crossed. It's a great app and definitely 5 out of 5 stars!

Reviewed on 8/30/19 2:06 PM

As noted the app does not work. It was great for a few weeks and it started shutting down. Before that issue I loved it. I sent an email to app support when the problem started and nothing changed. They either don't monitor or don't care.
