Keeping it simple Well done app. No location support but it's got a really understandable map and you are really just following the red brick road. Good information that isn't on any sign at each location and the audio tours were a neat surprise. I was pleasantly surprised

Good enough for free Crashes a bunch, no gps on the map, but this app has all the information about walking through Boston's freedom trail. It may not be as good as a real guided tour, but it totally gets the job done.
