A Yorkshire-based company, Pocket Locations, has recently launched a historical travel App, D Day and Normandy, for download from iTunes and direct onto iPhones and iPad.

Pocket Locations was founded from a love of history and followed on from Director Lydia Phillip's personal journey tracing the story of her family in both World Wars. It takes the user to the heart of Europe's First and Second World War battlefields: a simple and easy-to-use personal tour guide.

Mrs Phillip said: 'The app has been very well received. It has been given a five star rating on iTunes and the reviews have been spectacular.'
