I have been developing a couple of iPhone apps for the past few weeks, and one is turning out really well.  It is a GPS based app that alerts you of any nearby historical markers, and allows you to view information about that historical place/monument without ever having to type anything in.  I am making this app mainly for my dad, who has been looking for an app like this for years, but I will probably publish it to the app store as well.

Currently in Progress:

  • obtaining and processing a government database of the NRHP(National Register of Historic Places)
  • coding the App
  • figuring out a name for it.

If you have a suggestion for a name, email me at
