Description

This smartphone app is connected to one of the largest databases of historical markers’ text and their GPS coordinates in the United States.  It uses GPS to evaluate existing locations and compares it to a dataset to see if the user is within range to view the marker. If so, the smartphone “reads” the text aloud as it activates.

The system is hands-free and requires no physical interaction. Users can also upload their own 200-character count text  — history, advertising, or tidbits of information about a place, which will then activate at the proper location for other app users.

App Finalist for 2010 European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC).

  • Google releases optional security update for Chromebooks, but it wipes all local data

    Chrome OS is one of the most secure desktop operating systems on the market (privacy concerns about the Google ecosystem aside). Automatic system updates, verified boot, and system drive encryption all keep your Chromebook safe from attacks. Most mode…

  • Now’s the perfect time to get into PlayStation VR with these big price drops

    Take advantage of these deals while they last.

    If you just want to get into the PlayStation virtual reality world, you can start with the standalone headset at its lowest price since Black Friday, just $199.99 at B&H. It’s normally $300, and this price will only last through March 3.

    Dive into the deep end of PlayStation VR with some of the bigger bundles on sale as well. For example, the Doom VR Bundle includes the headset, the PlayStation camera, and the virtual reality version of Bethesda’s shooter, Doom. It’s on sale for $299 from a street price around $350.

    The PlayStation VR Skyrim bundle is down to $349 from $400. It includes two PlayStation Move controllers along with the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR.

    The headset features a 5.7-inch OLED 1080p display and runs up to 120 frames per second. The 3D audio technology allows you to pinpoint sounds above, below, and all around you making your experience that much more realistic.

  • 5 super apps you have to try this week

    Here are the 5 apps you can’t miss this week. We’ve been searching the Play Store for you, and these caught our eye: Notarize, Microsoft Launcher (now with Cortana!), and more!(This is a preview – click here to read the entire entry.)

  • The Pixel 2 charges much more slowly below certain temperatures, but it doesn’t tell you that

    Battery advancements haven’t kept in step with performance improvements, but the charging tech for topping those cells up has come a long way. Now, most phones come with some flavor of quick-charging technology that promises to fill our capacious flagships in arbitrarily small periods of time. But in the case of Google’s Pixel 2 XL, it turns out that its “Charging rapidly” notification isn’t always an accurate statement. In low temperatures, Google’s flagship will claim to be charging quickly (10W+) when, in fact, it’s actually charging at less than 4W. 

    The Pixel 2 XL charging at below ~20°C (68°F)

    We were tipped off about the issue by a few of our readers, and though reports and our own tests only confirm this for the 2 XL, we don’t know if the smaller Pixel 2 is also affected.

  • How to deal with Blu-Ray problems on PlayStation 4

    Blu-Ray won’t give you problems today

    Watching a movie on your PlayStation 4 is great, right until it isn’t. For some reason, the BD-Live option on many PlayStation 4 units has a habit of giving your Blu-Ray player a bit of trouble. It’s not the source of every problem, but when it crops up it can be difficult to troubleshoot.

    Thankfully, we have found a few solutions for you to try based on what you think is best for your compatibility.

    Checking out BD-Live

    This is a feature on your PlayStation 4 that will allow internet access options to become available on certain Blu-Ray Disks. The requirements for using this feature are 1 GB of internal storage and an internet connection. When enabled it will download extra content for your movie, even if it was released after the movie was.

    You’re familiar with the “Extras” disk that came with a lot of your DVD movies growing up, yes? Things like deleted scenes, background scenes and bloopers are the types of content that will be downloa…

  • LastPass finally gets support for Oreo autofill, keeps accessibility option

    LastPass began its winding path to support Android Oreo’s autofill API in August, but the day is finally here: The popular password manager has pushed support for Oreo autofill to its stable, non-beta app. Accessibility-based autofill is still available for older apps (and Chrome) that don’t yet support the new implementation.

    In the latest version of LastPass (4.4.1749), you can turn on Oreo autofill by going to Settings > Autofill. Once you tap the toggle for “Autofill” under “Android Oreo,” you’ll see a brief animation giving you a heads-up on what you’ll have to do next.

  • How to design and order Google Photo Books

    This year, give the gift of memories.

    Smartphones cameras just keep getting better, and you’ve probably taken a few photos over the years that you want to commit to memory forever. Sure, you can post them on social media or get individual prints at your local convenience store, but there’s nothing like a nice photo book to organize all of your favorite shots in one place.

    Luckily, Google makes it easy to order customized books through its Photos backup service. Whether you’re using the website or the app on your phone, it just takes a few minutes to create something special.
