SAGAMORE APPS // $1.99  A portable tour guide for Frank Lloyd Wright locations across Chicago and throughout the Midwest, Wright Around Chicago features 21 entries arranged alphabetically by name (Charnley House, Dana-Thomas House, Fabyan Villa, and so forth). Each listing includes highlights of the house or location and the price of tours or whether a site can be viewed for free from the street, as is possible for the Francisco Terrace Archway in Oak Park. The best feature? Just tap and receive turn-by-turn driving directions to each site, ideal for planning a Chicago day trip or a weekend visit to Wisconsin. Suggestion for the next version: Allow users to group the sites by location.
