Now available on iOS and Android, the app showcases points of interest told through personal stories and historical information
GEOTALE™, a mobile app that allows users to learn about and add to the history of various known and unknown places and landmarks of interest, is now available to download from the Apple App and Google Play Stores for free.
With the app, users can contribute to and explore history based on proximity or any international geographical reference point all from the convenience of a smartphone. This includes:
- Telling a story and creating a digital historical point of interest by dropping a story pin
- Exploring what happened here, there or anywhere
- Creating mock historical tours based on personal interests
“Everyone and every place has a story – so many interesting things are happening around us every day, but they simply go untold,” said Rainer Boelzle, founder of GEOTALE. “We have developed a beautiful mobile experience for others to learn from and enjoy.”
GEOTALE is based on the idea that human history should not be defined solely by historians and governments alone, but rather by real people telling their own experiences and offering unique insights and information about a place.
Both historical landmarks and points of interest marked by real people and told from their perspectives are organized into categories of interest on the app, including film/TV, music, health, sports and more, with a filter feature, so users only get the stories that matter most to them. Additionally, GEOTALE can be used for people to learn something new about the areas they live in or travel to and find nearby stories.
“You never know what has happened in the exact spot you’re standing on vacation or even at that neighborhood restaurant you’ve been visiting all of your life,” said Boelzle. “With GEOTALE, everyone can see where history has been made, whether it’s a proposal under a tree or a historical landmark that’s been around for hundreds of years.”
