Philip Crystal Jenkins

Strongly recommended for the traveling This app has been great at pointing out all of the truly unique & important things to see while traveling or living in an area. It's been right on with information provided and instant directions is always a good thing

Debbie Jones

Great Tool When Traveling Travel a lot for work and this app helps me learn more about the places I visit. Very cool and informative.

chris apgar

History buffs - look here. Quick, easy to use and informative. Has many points of interest, ranging across diverse areas. Our family has enjoyed it!

Sandra Everett

Love history. App does crash, but when it's running, it's fantastic. Good to see history near your location.

Matthew Wieker

Good for Travel It's good to use for finding stuff to do on vacation or just things near you you weren't unaware of.

Victor Day

History here Very good app. Thank you.

Jerry Sadler

Really good, especially if you travel

Craig PoVey

Use it everywhere Everywhere I travel I open this app to learn history of the area

Jeff Lemieux

Great Finally an app that is quite useful. It showed areas around I did know we're around me

Robert Ferguson sr

Fun app Full of descriptive places and things to see

Jose Javier Loaiza Giraldo

fantastic History channel is the best app before you travel, I find places that I would have never known you.

Alejandro C

Excellent Great idea, knowing the history around you, Cool!!!

Hans De Kryger


Scott Rhoades

Good idea, nothing there I like the idea, but looking at reviews back about three years I see the same complaint I have over and over: not enough sites. The only historical site in San Francisco is Candlestick Park? Guess there won't be any soon, Nothing around Sacramento? If the same complaints have been around for three years, it's fair to assume nothing is going to change. Uninstalling.

Joseph Deming

Good app getting better Still lots that could be done and data to enter. But quick mapping and easy readability show you neat info in most 'large' cities

James Haydon

Very cool Its great to see the history that's just down the street. That you didn't learn is school!

Randy Chapman

H2,Love it- yes. History Channel=H2

Ryan H

Ok Works ok . Needs better UI and options

Michael Lance Carroll Sr.

awesome! works great on my Nexus 5 & 7 running Android 4.4.4 ty ?

Zacharina Earnest

Good when on vaca

A Google User

Nice UI but... I live in the south right down the road from a major battle ground and this thing didn't even show it.

A Google User

Good start but lacking info This is a good app and a decent starting point. However, I live in a city that is loaded with history and all that is included is a cursory list of historical items. There is very little (read: almost nothing) mentioned of the Carnegies, Fricks, Westinghouses, Steel Mills, Arsenal Park, Fort Pitt and Fort Duquesne. Once more is included then I will revise my review.

Mark Smith

Needs to move to SD I like this app, but I wish I could move it to SD card, no reason not to, this is not an app that needs to run in the background. As mentioned before lots of history missing, but to be fair it is a new app it takes time. We have a lot of civil war areas around here, not one is mentioned, the whole point of this I would assume would be to let me know about little known things like that...

Cameron Taylor

Fair Is really missing alot of data. I live within 100 miles of two major colonial seaports but neither has any listings. Researchers really need to get to work.

John Smiley

Looked promising, but.. It's a disappointment. I live in an area rich in history but this pulled up only 2 sites and both were lame businesses, neither pertaining to what I expected to see (Pony Express, US Corps of Engineer's project, location of CO's most devastating flood are just a few of the most obvious locations). Uninstalled.

A Google User

Needs more data I live in Olympia, Wa. the state capitol of Washington State. The app shows absolutely nothing for this area within a 25 mile radius. Being the state capitol there should be loads of historical things.The Google Field Trip app hits all kind of things. Update the base I'll give a better rating. It seems to be a good idea for an app.

A Google User

highly entertaining and educational my only complaint is needing to put a zipcode every time i want to read about another neighborhood. if you just scroll to a new area on the map, it wont have historical markers until you enter its zipcode. otherwise i cant put it down. never knew so much history was near by!

A Google User

Needs improvement I gave the history app 2 stars instead of just 1 because the idea is so good, even if the execution still needs a lot of work. I uninstalled it for 2 reasons but would be happy to reinstall if those things were fixed. First it can't be moved to my sd card or USB storage and it's way too big to leave installed in the phone's memory. Second, it needs an input button right on the map screen that would allow any user to submit information to add to the database.

A Google User

Good app This is a pretty nice app. There is only a few things that it picks up around my area but good history on things that happen around me.

Marcus Suffolk

Disappointed Concept for this app is amazing but the research done was poor to say the least. Just in my 50 mile radius there were only like 5 things historical you guys mentioned but I personally know many more. You need to have someone getting much better info for the next update. Better yet, hire me if no one will oblige.

A Google User

Good app, weak content While the app itself is well-made, the content is definitely lacking. I live on the University of Alabama campus and the only thing showing up is a weak mention of George Wallace's stand in the front door. Nothing about Tuscaloosa's Civil War history, nothing about the first capitol, nothing about Van de Graaff... nothing. Since the sole purpose of this app is to provide interesting content, its lack thereof makes it pretty useless. Would love to see where they go with it.

A Google User

Good start But lacking in data. I live 8 miles south of Philadelphia so there should be tons of things. Delaware county has a bunch of sites on the National historic register, even more on the state register, yet not one site in the county pops up on here.

Kenneth O'Rourke

This is a great app! Started using this application here in Las Vegas and have had a blast exploring things I never knew were here! Take the time to turn it on wherever you are and you may be surprised what is right around you! Have fun and good luck!

Ashley Macejka

Thanks Bizarre States Heard about the app on Bizarre States and had to download it. What an awesome app! I can't wait to use this on our road trips this summer

Andy Holowchak

Nice Very informative and accurate.

timothy budur

Perfect for me I especially love history, and to have found/came across an app whee it will tell me places in my area that I did not know about in regards to historic places, I love it!! Thanks guys, great job, defently 5 stars!!

Jerry Palmer

Learn from the past to change the future A very good app that gives the location & a brief description of what has passed before us.

Tammy Meadors

Love this app!!! One of my favorite travel apps. Easy to use, lots of info. Have found some neat things to go see.

Doug Mytnik

Perfect for historical trips We use this app during family trips to visit historical sites in the surrounding area.

Stacey Bond

Barely works This is a great app when it works. Unfortunately that only happens about 25% of the time.

jerry davis

History here This is most very great for all of us. Thaank all of you very much for this.

William Samonides

If you're a history buff, you'll love this app. The first time I used this app the local search results revealed numerous historical sites right around me. Of course I was aware of the more famous historic sites nearby, but I am amazed how many more points of interest the app actually found!

Joseph Johnson

Great for finding out the history of the area you live in our just visiting

EMerced M

Awesome application u really learn allot about history no matter where u at in this world,,, a must have… u never know what happened in your on backyard. Promise.

Shannon Swanson

Paul minter

I travel for a living. This ap is great for finding things to see and do in my spare time

Michael Ousley

Really nice!! Pretty interesting app...

Natasha Ware

So fun and informative Very nifty app to have.

Joanna Stanford

Major and also little known historical info One of my fav apps when travelling.

Mary Ogrady

I can add I liked being able to add a suggestion for a historical site. That's interactive.

Antoinette Smalley

A useful app! What a concept! So glad I found this one. Easy to learn and use. More historical locations than you'll find on any map

Sherry Smith

Like it Needs some updates but still useful

Scott Wingate

Fun to use while travelling

Christiania Natal

Great app but... It's a great app but I wish you guys had one for outside the U.S . That would be amazing!


Amazing The ux is phenomenal, literlly best app out. Hands down favorite for human history pin points in time

Brian Folks

Use when travelling I pop open this app whenever I am away from home to see interesting things around me.

Steven Schenk

Awesome! 8-)

Paul Reimel

Scratches surface only. App lacks many history locations. Very dissapointed. Limited tours listed as well.

Arturo Perez

Awsome & very informative

Jacob Missenou

Nice app. A must have This app is unbelievably awesome when traveling . Visited lot of historical sites because of it.

Kelly Lindauer

Where applicable this is great I hope this will be continually expanded to other cities....great app

Kevin Tovar

More to Las Vegas I live in las vegas and unlike popular be life I don't live on the strip there is a whole city off the strip and plenty 9f history but all the history bubbles are on old vegas and the strip I would like an update with all our rich old West and mining history and much more as well

chris scholz

Love finding out the history of places we visit. Very informative

Barbara Sweeney

New "old" history Fun app to find odd historic places... Where the definition of historic is quite broad.

mike jackson

Gives great insight on historical sites

Earl Winston

Surrounded by history it's so amazing!

William Vaughn

Great app for history buffs.

Diane Miles

Helped a lot on our trip

Sara Billings

I live in an area rich with history and I homeschool. This app lets me give spur of the moment facts which helps me engage my sometimes broody teens.

jack black

Great Lack of content The app works like it says but there is not much content with information it can provide. Just contains information about the history with in the USA. Not about much else.

Aaron Miller

App won't open App won't open on Nexus 6p. Spinning icon for over 5mins. Bummer, was really looking forward to using the app

John Williamson

Buggy initially, but when works enjoyable Some cool interface features, and illuminating content. I'd move to 5 stars if they added quirky yet historically accurate and representative history, like "110 year old stables that supplied services to the mounts of the US Army during the Indian Wars, etc. Adding crowd source input that was approved prior to publishing could help scale content and make this a truly cool repository vs. a smart phone-enabled "free in the motel lobby" variety tour guide.

Carter Whitten

It won't load PLEASE HELP! I have a Galaxy S7 and over 12GB of available memory. When I installed the app I then opened it, and it will never go past the first screen. I tried wiping the cache partition and the cache and data for the app. I even tried uninstalling and then installing again, and it still does the same thing. I would really like to avoid a master reset for this one app. I have no problems with any other 3rd party apps.

MacKenzie Skye

Samsung GalaxyNote 5 Won't Open! Unfortunately, i just get the spinning circle and nothing will load. Hopefully that fix this soon- it sounds amazing.

Matt Alviar

Fun app fyi We used this app during our summer vacation traveling to multiple National Parks across the Western states.

Spaceman Superflight

Awesome! Love how the app uses your location. Found out a lot of stuff about San Antonio I never knew.

Tonya Nickell

I couldn't get the app to work. :( I was really looking forward to using it.

Chester Sopczak

Worked great for 2 minutes Worked great, learning things about my area, then I kept getting the dreaded, "History Here has stopped working". I did a force stop, etc...and still getting that message. I'm deleting it for now. Let me know if you get it going. I enjoyed it while it was working. I'm on a LG G5.

Robert P

History buff dreams Love this app. Learning so much of unknown places.

Miki Krakauer

My travel companion Amazing on a cross country trip. There's something interesting wherever you go. My only complaint is that it crashes too often and can be hard to restart. But it's been with the effort

Bryan LeGare

Fail Downloaded, installed (3x), and failed to run on my galaxy 6.

Anto Garabet

Wont load When i try to open the app it gives me the message of the app has stopped.....

Tim Martin

Galaxy s6 and it does not run Spinning and won't open. On a galaxy s6. Really wanted to check out the ap too.

R. McKinley

Simple to use, but not really enough information to be useful.

Meredith Renae

Very easy to use Details are quick and easy to understand and its fun to learn about places I walk past daily.

Jacklyn Leonard

Love it As a truck driver, this app is really neat for those times where we are parked for a day and want to check out the local POI.

Jo Townzer

Doesn't work Opening screen with circle of death, app never opened properly. Samsung Note 4.

Lacey Shanks

Needs a lot of work to be effective Not real helpful at showing local places. Had to drive 100 to 900 miles to visit any of the places suggested when I know there are many historical places right in my area.

Jared Smith

History is my love Im in the army and i am stationed here in va. The civil war is my passion and i love this app because i can see and learn battles and skirmish just while getting groceries.

Dana Lynn Johnson

What's Happened History Here? On a road trip and can't get the app to work. We've tried on 4 different phones and the map is not working!

Walter Clark

No map data available Unfortunately, map data has stopped loading on this app. The page will be blank. The map in the "History Here" app has crashed, unable to open, and it has shut down.

Dick Eastman

Works great on Nexus 6P Not sure why another person says History Here won't load on a Nexus 6P. It works perfectly on my Nexus 6P. I've used it 15 or 20 times when traveling and it always works perfectly.

Nicole Smith

Maps won't load I wish I could use this app- I'm a history fanatic. I've tried downloading it a couple of times over the past few months, though, and the maps never load... I'm just staring at a blank screen. Too bad- I'm going to NYC & DC next week and it would've been super useful

Kelly Montaño

I love this app! The only suggestion that I have is this: i like to use the star function to mark the places that I'd like to go, but it would be awesome if there was a way to mark the places that you've already visited.

Roger Osborn

Great idea buggy code I love the concept of this app but it crashes all the time.
