    The content is great, and I especially enjoy it as I am from the area, and an employee. The app would benefit from some improvements- ° the scrolling is very slow ° it needs a scroll bar to allow very fast scrolling, and to tell you where you're up to ° you shouldn't have to scroll right back to the top to close the screen. Utilise the back button of the smart phone. ° thanx though

    Great companion for delving into the history of Port Sunliggt Village. Multi-media content, great graphics and best of all it is FREE. Great job!

    This is the perfect companion for a stroll across Port Sunlight. Full of information and nice archive pictures. Big file though, but necessary given the wealth of material. Download from WiFi if you don't want to get stung. There's a free one in the cafe of Lady Lever Art Gallery.

    Great app about the historical village of Port Sunlight and it's founder William Lever. Lots of photos and film clips. An old map guides you on a tour around the village with or without GPS.
