Walking Through Time was featured on the New list in iTunes (spotted by Chris on the the 21st of August)!
Numbers seem to be up!
The reviews are mixed, complaints about the zoom issue and some people not getting any maps – that may have been version 2. All fixed now – and honestly it works a treat. Even faster since we managed to take a link out of the server chain.
Nice little bit of publicity in the Metro (p.5, August 20th)…..
The number of downloads tells us that the word’s getting about – happy days!
Walking Through Time was featured as a full page news story in the Scottish national newspaper The Sunday Herald. On page 5 too!
It seems to have captured the publics imagination.

Times Higher Piece
Small but perfectly formed piece in todays Times Higher Supplement…..
It’s a shame they haven’t cited the whole team, but all news is good news for WTT!!
Nice piece in the Edinburgh Journal…..
This is a link to the online version:
‘A team of Edinburgh academics have created an application that allows smart phone users to ‘walk through time’.
Students and professors from the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) and Edinburgh University have joined forces with EDINA map services to create a programme that offers this experience.
“The great fun is giving it to someone and then taking them to where a street doesn’t exist and say ‘walk’, but they can’t because there’s a new building in the way,” said Dr Chris Speed, reader in the School of Architecture at ECA.
“That is when you get the ‘wow’ moment. They begin to realise that the world has changed,” Speed added.
Based on Google Earth technology, the new application gives users access to maps that date back over 150 years.’
The app has featured in the History section (page 13) of the Australian Horizon Report that details emerging technologies! How they managed to find us so quickly we’ll never know but its nice to be acknowledged internationally.
