Have you ever driven by a historical marker and wonder what it said? Do you like to visit cities and towns and learn more about local historic places? Georeader reads outloud historical markers and other points of interest as you pass by them, walking or driving. A map is shown to locate historical points near your location, and information about the point is provided. Data is also available in a list form, with distances to the historical points. GeoReader can be easily customized to be used hands free for safe driving, or to simply message you when you are close to a piece of history. The app is designed to run in the background with other apps, so you will always be aware of interesting points around you. GeoReader is connected to some of the largest historical databases available, including historical markers, national register of historic places, historic bridges and more. As a tool to preserve and share history, GeoReaders database is growing every day from contributions from organizations like the City of Syracuse, El Paso Texas, and the Arizona Preservation Society. As a user, you can also add custom points or walking tours yourself on the website,www.mygeoreader.com, and then use the app to hear what you wrote, and share your knowledge with others. GeoReader is intuitive and very simple to use, and a tutorial is available within the app for detailed instruction. Great for road trips and travel of any kind. There is history everywhere, discover it wherever you are with GeoReader. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.In light of this, we only use less costly location methods unless the device is plugged into external power. When plugged into power, we use GPS, but the app works fine either way. While this approach is helpful, some increased battery draw still occurs whenever background reading of points is enabled.
