New app helps find historical markers

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - As one of the original 13 colonies, Georgia has plenty of history to go around.

The Georgia Historical Society has launched an iPhone app to bring history right to people's fingertips. It makes finding all of the historical markers easier to find. Users can even search for specific subjects and it'll even plot out a course for a self-guided tour.

"It shows photographs of the marker, all of the marker content. The day it was dedicated, whom it was dedicated by and any other historical facts that go along with that marker," said Hannah Byrne, founder and CEO Smack Dab Studios.

The app is only for the iPhone right now, but they plan on making it Droid-friendly in the coming months.
