Update: Enhancements to Landmarks Chicago app

The Landmarks: Chicago iPhone app is updated (ver. 1.96) with the following new features:

  • New landmarks! (approved by Chicago City Council in October 2011):
    • White Castle #16 at E. Cermak Road,
    • Kenwood United Church of Christ at S. Greenwood Ave., and
    • the latest Schlitz Brewery Tied House at N. Oakley Ave.
  • Facebook is added to the “Share” option for each landmark. You can directly post information about each landmark to your wall, with a customized note.

  • A “tab bar” is added to the map – now you can easily search by location or street, change the map type, and set preferences without leaving the map.
  • A Google Street View image has been added for each landmarked site.
  • Several corrections have been made to Wikipedia links and photo images.
  • Search distance and miles vs. kilometers are now preferences. You don’t have to set these each time you do a search. You can easily change the search radius, and switch from miles to kilometers, from a Preferences button.
  • Overall software updates to improve performance.
