witf announces the launch of a new mobile app named PA Markers, the first mobile app associated with the award-winning website, ExplorePAhistory.com.
PA Markers is the mobile tool for anyone interested in learning more about American history, Pennsylvania history and the people, places and stories that helped shape our nation.
The PA Markers app reveals the story behind many of Pennsylvania's famous blue and gold historical markers. Search for a marker by name or set the app to show you all the markers within a set distance from your phone. Select a marker to see the marker text, then read the full story behind that marker, complete with images and links to other related markers, all on your mobile device. PA Markers even offers additional resources to check out. No more guessing about town names (Burnt Cabins?) or historical figures (Daniel Boone). It’s all on the app!
The PA Markers application can find and map historical markers from all over Pennsylvania along with directions and travel time from your current location.
PA Markers features only official Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) historical markers that have been listed on www.ExplorePAhistory.com.
