An invaluable tool Clio represents a lot of great ideas bundled into one app. Since I learned of it, I've visited a number of locations I never would have known about otherwise. I plan on visiting many more. The cool thing about Clio is, if you know about a location not yet featured on the app, you can add it! I recommend this to anyone who travels, or to anyone who wants to see their hometown with fresh eyes.
This app is awesome!! My husband and I were traveling through some small towns back country towns. We turned on our clio app and it turned out that we were only a few miles away from THE Emmitt Till grave!!!! How cool? I will be telling my friends about this app.
Loved using this in Chicago--best part was the ability to hand it to my son and have HIM tell me the history of buildings. He was so proud that I don't think he believed he was being tricked into learning.
This makes history come alive in so many ways. I've taught history at the high school and college level for years and have been looking for something like this for quite some time--so much good information and I love that there is the option for creating new locations and taking walking tours. Outstanding!
One of the most unique apps around. Entertaining and educational. It's so fun to see how many places you walk by daily are full of histoty -- places you'd otherwise walk by without giving it a second thought. Makes you realize just how connected we are to the generations that preceded us.
Limited Does not pick up historical markers I just passed. Search is terrible.
Updated google maps integration.
