Don't wonder aimlessly
I used this app on my recent trip to Oakland Cemetery. I didn't have a plan to explore the cemetery but was mainly there to take photos. I used the 'Garden' tour to explore the cemetery and learn about it's botanical history. As someone only mildly interested in botany, but very interested in history, I found the information in the tour very interesting. It lead me to beautiful gardens and great historical markers. I learned a lot about Atlanta's Victorian customs as well.
The app itself is very easy to use and comes with a helpful gps enabled map. I got off track to explore other sections of the cemetery, but used the gps map to find my way back to the tour path.
I'm looking forward to using the app's other tour and hope new ones are added soon.
