What do you get when you cross a 120-year-old “painted lady” with a smart phone? Believe it or not, you get a very smart and sexy app. History comes alive in these latest iPhone and iPad apps from McWhorter Communications.

Built for the City of Decatur, Alabama, these interactive walking and driving tours showcase some of the best points of interest of the city’s historical districts known as Albany and Old Decatur. Some of the highlights include an introduction from Alabama’s Tourism Director Lee Sentell, an overall map with GPS-enabled directions to show you where and how far away each point is, colorful photos, and an informative audio guide to take you through the districts at your own pace.
