Could be so much more useful...
Great to have an app focusing on Indigenous DC, so 3 stars for that. The info provided tho, suggests that the app developers didn’t actually go to the sites. For instance, it would be nice to identify which figure in the Marine Memorial is Ira Hayes, and point out that he is also in a photo on an info plaque nearby. Also, the picture in the app isn’t of the actual statue...I could go on, and wanted to comment at each site, helpfully, but I kept getting an error message.
