NEW YORK, NY - April 23, 2015 - A+E Networks(R) today announced that their critically acclaimed HISTORY HERE(R) app is now available for Apple Watch, making it accessible on every device. The HISTORY HERE app also includes a new feature that provides notifications to all users to let them know when they're near a POI (point of interest). Users can adjust settings to alert them when they're walking by POIs and determine the frequency of how they receive alerts.
HISTORY HERE is an interactive travel guide to thousands of historic locations across the United States. The easy-to-use interface, photos, video and dynamic maps bring history to life anywhere in the country. Whether on vacation or just running errands, the app makes it simple and fun to get the facts on the history hidden all around you.
Special features include:
The Tours feature - it provides topics and points of interest with historical location themes that pertain to specific areas, people, food, etc. For example - a Marilyn Monroe Los Angeles tour begins at the hospital she was born in and ends at the grave she is buried in. Additional Tours include Al Capone's Chicago, Civil War Atlanta, Central Park, New York - which explores the historical locations within the famous park from Strawberry Fields to the swan boats, among others.
