You can become an author, too, by uploading your own historical images and by helping make hidden stories visible. Here’s just a few good reasons to do so: transparent urban planning, commitment for the cityscape, monument conservation and a sound historic centre, interest in architecture and urban history as well as realizing educational projects.

- the grid view of the stations contained in a tour or a map section has been improved.
- Calling up a location in the map view will now show more results because the radius around the location has been increased when returning results for the entry.
Ratings and Reviews
Not intuitive and very glitchy on IPhone X
I do not have any idea how to use this app and it keeps crashing/freezing. No real good support for the app (that I can tell).
