  • Thousands of exclusive points of interest, written by the history experts at HISTORY.
  • Select your current location with GPS or choose any location across the country.
  • Customize your search to see historic points of interest—from right next door to 100 miles away.
    View images and stream HISTORY video directly within the app.
  • Display historic locations in a zoomable, map-based view or in a scrolling list.
  • Share the locations you find with friends via Facebook, Twitter and email.

It's worth noting that this is the initial release of the app, so it will continue to get new and interesting locations over time.

History Here is of course free in the Play Store, so hit the widget to give it a shot.
