Hidden Florence, history-tourism/study app

I'd like to flag up a free history-tourism app called 'Hidden Florence',
recently out on Apple and Android.

The app might be a useful tool for organisers of study-abroad courses in
Italy - and it might be interesting to all as an example of what urban historians
can do with smartphones.

Hidden Florence uses a 'contemporary' character as a guide, an artisan
c1490 dubbed Giovanni, and the user navigates with a GPS-located version of
Stefano Bonsignori's detailed city map of 1584.
