NEW YORK — The History Channel and Weather Channel designed some apps to take advantage of new features in the Mango release coming to Windows Phone in the fall.
Here is the History Channel app called History Here. It takes advantage of the phone’s GPS camera to list historical info for buildings around your phone’s location. There is a little easter egg about the 1980s film Ghostbusters if you watch this video.
