  • Can't get to search box

    Love this app - I used it extensively on a recent road trip. With DH driving, I can search for the number at the bottom of the "marker ahead" signs to see if it's worthy stopping for. I just installed the 11/16 update, and unfortunately the search box is hidden under the top banner and I can't type into it. Pulling the page down just refreshes the data and still doesn't let me type into it. I have an iPhone 5S, iOS 10.3.2. Please fix it before my next road trip and I'll update my review.

    The historical markers are meant to serve as reminders of the past, but today's generation for the most part are unappreciative of the past. I love to stop at markers every chance I can, but I think most people are desensitized how common they are and they've become invisible to most people. This app is great and I can't believe it hasn't been available longer. Nothing could serve these markers greater than this app for those who don't have time to stop, want to learn more about the greatest country and state of all time, and/or have wondered about that one marker they've never had time to stop at. Thanks for creating this app!
  • Great app for marker hunters.

    The app is nice and clean on the screen. Easy to use. I like the information displayed and how it's presented. This version appears not to work with GPS updates so I can't give it 5 stars. If it gets corrected I'll update my review. Overall tailored and fun to use. GPS functionality will make this app "the must have".
  • Right idea does not work

    It is filled with what looks like all the markers however the location services do not work which leaves you digging through all of them versus the ones nearby.

    We use the app while traveling around the state and this makes the hunt much easier.
