Historical tours writers needed for the iPhone

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

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.
