Landmarks: Chicago features

Landmarks: Chicago helps you uncover hidden architectural and cultural gems across the city — there’s probably one (or more) in your neighborhood!  The images below highlight the app’s features.

New features/enhancements with version 1.96:

  • 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.
