Must have if you’re a fan of before and after

I enjoy history and travel, and often try to imagine how places were in the past. This app has it covered if you like to see how places have changed due to time and progress. I’ve learned about my home city as well as places I’ve visited and locations I intend to visit. New spots are being added all the time and I’m looking forward to the pasts that are to come. Thanks and keep it up!

Just a super interesting concept that keeps me learning as I wander town 😊

I never cared about history or thought I did until I made this app with my historian friend. The value of remembering the past and digging deep into the stories that exist everywhere we look is impossible to explain… try it for yourself
