History Explorer shows the location of a collection of historical images of Gloucester and Cheltenham, many dating back over 100 years.
It takes it’s images from the same data pool as it’s popular bigger brother ‘Vantage Point’ for Windows 8 (and may well morph into something akin to it for Windows Phone if given enough time!)
Essentially the app was built as an exercise in using the new Microsoft/Nokia mapping technology that is in the latest platform update. It also seemed appropriate given that most of the older photographs date back around 100 years or so to commemorate the anniversary of the start of the Great War.
The App is free and can be downloaded here
