Explore 9/11 – September 11 Memorial App for iPhone
The most tragic September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on The World Trade Center (Twin towers) can never be forgotten by anyone in the World. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum has created an official 9/11 Memorial application as a guide to understanding 9/11 through the eyes of who witnessed the events. The app is free and compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.1 or later.
App has 3 features:
Tour – A seven-stop walking tour of the area around the World Trade Center, accompanied by audio and photo narration. The events of the day and its aftermath are told by first responders, rescue workers, volunteers, and those who lived and worked in Lower Manhattan on 9/11. While the walking tour takes place in Lower Manhattan, the tour content is accessible to users anywhere.
Explore – View images related to the events of 9/11 and their aftermath taken nearby wherever you are. Photos may be viewed in Augmented Reality-technology mode which overlays images on the camera view. All photos were contributed to the museum by survivors and witnesses through 911history.org.
Timeline – An interactive timeline of the day’s events and aftermath. Includes links to witness photos taken during these time blocks.
The app can operate in an offline mode for non-U.S. visitors who have disabled data roaming. In this mode, all tour content is still accessible. The app includes a map of free Wi-Fi hotspots near the tour route for downloading “Explore” photos from the vicinity.
Given the sensitivity surrounding the events of 9/11, viewer discretion is advised.
9/11 Memorial Museum has a site “Make History” where users from around the world can submit stories and upload any images related to the 9/11 event.
