Some news from the latest Ulster Historical Foundation (www.ancestryireland.com) newsletter:

Free Ulster-Scots Visitor Experience Android and iPhone app
A new app that provides information on 200 locations across the north of Ireland including towns, villages, castles, churches and graveyards that form an integral part of the Ulster-Scots story during the last 500 years. Search iTunes or the Android market. (Comment - not sure if this is the same app that was updated in April, as I can't see a newer one yet on my iPad)
