More Than a Mapp — The iPhone/iPod App



Alt for app teaser: Logo for the More Than a Mapp iPhone app, which includes the image of a compass and a silhouette of a man wearing a sandwich board.

More Than a Mapp is a free iPhone and iPod app that allows users to discover and contribute to the African American history that exists all around us. The location-enabled application can reveal sites of significance to black history in your city, and allows you to upload map points of your own. The crowd-sourced and moderated data will grow to reveal that history doesn’t just live in books; it has a presence in the everyday places we find ourselves.
