I absolutely love this app. It's like carrying around a Cleveland tour guide with you wherever you go.

There are tons of POI's with new ones being added fairly regularly. Plus, it's quite a user friendly little app. The only thing I would ask for is support for landscape mode, which would make viewing some photos and videos a bit more enjoyable.

All in all, a fantastic app that I hope all lovers of the CLE will use and support. Keep up the great work CSU!!!

Illuminating the history of Cleveland!

Splendid app for immersing yourself in the history of our fair city; would be great for visitors as well.
Interface is well designed and content includes text, photos, and audio, and videos!

I use this all the time!

This is absolutely wonderful and I still use this all the time even though I originally downloaded this a while ago. I'm so glad that someone took the time to compile all of this in such an easy to use format!
