Gettysburg, PA (PRWEB) July 04, 2013
Visitors to this week’s 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg are invading the battlefield with their smartphones and tablets. Unlike the original armies who struggled to find maps and survey the terrain, almost every visitor can now easily navigate the huge battlefield with the GPS technology in their pocket. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can access Apple’s interactive mapping program that offers 2D and 3D views of standard and satellite views. If you are using an Android device, Google offers a similar mapping service. Both services will show you exactly where you are on the interactive map.
One app that takes advantage of these mapping services is the innovative “Gettysburg 150” app by SmartDoc Technologies. The app is the #1 Gettysburg app on the Apple App Store and it combines the mapping services with information by award winning authors including James McPherson, Allen Guelzo, and Eric Wittenberg. According to J.P. Terry, the CEO of SmartDoc Technologies, “The Gettysburg 150 downloads over the past week are 1000% higher than normal”.
“Many people have written us about how easy the app is to use and how it has enabled them to find the locations they wanted to see."
There are over 3000 Gettysburg invaders (i.e. visitors) who are equipped with the app on their iPhone, iPad, or Android device and are experiencing the battlefield in a new way. The personal technology enables them to find all the hidden gems of Gettysburg. The next free upgrade to the Gettysburg 150 app will include content from the new exciting book, "Gettysburg, The Last Invasion" by Professor Allen Guelzo.
