Ratings and Reviews
I just heard about The Blue Tile Project and was excited to try the app. It did not disappoint! This is a fun app for current and former residents of Houston alike. It has brought back great memories of my childhood and I can easily imagine spending time hunting for these street side relics on my bicycle the next time I get to visit the old neighborhood. Great fun for the history buff!
The app seems to function well and do what it is supposed to. After playing with it a bit, I opted for the no ads upgrade.
Although a Houston specific item, it should be of interest to others as well and may spur some to investigate and appreciate similar treasures to be found in other places as well. Needless to say I will recommend it to others.

Great App! Easy to use. If you see a Blue Tile Street Sign, use the app, take a picture and it will document and preserve the location of the photo. Let's find all remaining Blue Tile Street Signs in the Houston Area.
Doesn't work well
The app doesn't work well. I took about 20 pictures this evening, then the app asked me to enter the address, then Save. The app only shows I uploaded 7 pictures. In addition the app will not access your camera roll to upload the pictures taken outside the app.
