Westbrook Company Has Popular Map App


Imagine standing on a busy street corner, hitting a
button on your iPhone, and seeing a map of that same corner 200 years ago,
complete with names of former landowners, yellowed photos of the buildings
around you and even information about your family's historic ties to the
area . . .
Historic Map Works has sold more than 200 of the apps, called Historic
Earth, and seen the app join the ranks of Apple's top 25 reference category
iPhone apps.

If I didn't have an historic cellphone (look, ma, it takes pictures!), I'd totally get this.
