iPhone App Rama Looking for Writers for Historical Tours

This Press Release intrigued me. Could genealogists utilize this app for iPhone or create walking genealogy tours? I'd love to hear from any readers who decide to apply - just post a comment here on my blog and let us know.

Past Preservers is looking for passionate writers who can utilise the iPhone app, Rama, to make history come alive

04-21-11 - Press Release
Cumbria, United Kingdom, Europe
Past Preservers is working with Crimson Bamboo to develop historical tours for iPhone app, Rama.

Uniting popular history with archival photographs, Rama adds a historical narrative to the walking tour and shows snapshots of the tour route as it actually appeared.

Named by BBC Travel in 2010 as one of the ten best new travel apps, Rama is the only app that captures the experience of being in Chicago after the Great Fire, on the beaches of Normandy during D-Day, or in Shanghai’s French Concession in the roaring 20s.

If you would like to be involved with creating tours for Rama, send us an email about yourself and your tour idea to

Whether it’s a jaunt through your university’s past, or a recreation of the recent protests and political reform in Egypt, if you make the idea sound compelling, we’ll give you the tools to make it into a tour.

Thanks for the post! I saw this advertisement and wondered to myself if it was too good be to true. I need extra cash to help pay for my master's degree.
