History Check App
Explore, experience and engage in the history & activities in over 330 communities and regions. and Download History Check Here
We launched with a sampling of 1000 Points of Interest and wil continue to add more. We fully expect 10,000 in the months to come. Our goal is to make all 300+ communities look like this.
The Friends of Historical Northern Alberta Society and their collaborators & supporters, came together in a HUGE COOPERATIVE EFFORT to bring this Heritage and Travel Companion mobile app to travellers, residents and tourists.
With postive reviews, we are moving into the next phase. We still need contributions for advertising, staff, and other regular expenses that will make this the overall success it can be.
If you are a business owner, support us through advertising for less than a $1 a day - or $350 annually. Advertising includes branding and addition to our interest driven search functions.
One of our biggest challenges right now is to go viral, so even if you cannot contribute financially, please make it a priority to share on all of your channels.
Our success is success for northern Alberta!
Please contact me, Sheila Willis, if you have any questions on how to contribute information, our complimentary services for other non-profits and heritage organizations, or any other questions you may have.
Whether you can give $20 - $50 - $100 or more please support this project that was built to support the History and communities of Alberta.
We STRONGLY encourage you to download the app at www.historycheck.ca and see what and incredible tool it is for northern Alberta.
Then please support the project through a donation of any amount. We launched with 1000 Points of Interest and have HUGE amount of content to add over the next 200 days to be ready for summer 2018.
We are still working towards self-sustainability and while we have begun looking for business advertisers there is still a 45 to 60 day window before those payments start coming in.
Help ensure the success of this project by contributing your donation now. It will benefit small businesses, communities and non-profits across northern Alberta.

Over the last several days the test versions of the History Check app have been added to the App Store and Google Play,
We have already worked out several bugs and things are well on their way to the Official Launch on October 4th.
On Sunday September 24th (two more sleeps) we will be having a Celebration of our soft-beta launch at the Prince of Wales Armoury in Edmonton.
Part of the celebration is an invitation to sign our Appreciation Scroll we have made that thanks people for being there for us while we created the app. See the attached photo for more details.
If you would like try out the app and offer feedback to us, we would appreciate it.
Visit www.historycheck.ca for links.
If you are able to donate to this project, please do so.
We have moved to a dedicated server and will be submitting History Check to Apple and Google next week for approval for the App store and Google Play.
If all goes well with those approvals History Check will be available for download on September 24th.
We still need financial assistance. There will be a lag time between availability of the app and the purchase of advertising, which will allow us to become self-sustainable.
If you can give to this amazing project, please do so. You will be helping the promotion of our rich and diverse history, as well as the economics of communities across northern Alberta.
