Father and daughter create Historic Savannah mobile app


Savannah has a new app to help people tour the Historic District.

Ken Stewart and his daughter Kaitlyn created Historic Savannah, the first video based self-guided tour app of its kind.

Stewart explains the application didn't start out as an app at all. He created the program as a fun life skills learning project around downtown Savannah for Kaitlyn, who is a special needs adult.

The app is available for Android and iPhone users, and features over 60 videos. In each video, a tour guide pops up to tell you about the historic site.

Stewart explains how special the project is to him and his daughter.

"The big difference its made in self esteem, in self worth, and acceptance, and those are beyond price." said Stewart.

The Historic Savannah app came out two weeks ago. The duo is already working on their second app, a ghost tour of Savannah.
