Redlands history? There’s an app for that


Thanks to their computer science professor, Trish Cornez, University of Redlands students Sean Unger ’18 and David Galindo ’18 were paired with the Redlands Area Historical Society (RAHS) to develop an app for community service learning credits.

The opportunity, which evolved into an internship and scholarship, resulted in the creation of the RAHS Explorer app showcasing more than 350 Redlands homes with RAHS Heritage Awards. Available for both Android phones and iPhones, the app enables searches by address, date of building, architectural style, builder, and architect.

“It was a test for me and Sean to come up with a real-world product that others can use and enjoy,” says Galindo, who began working for a start-up app developer in El Segundo even before he graduated. “And right now, I feel confident enough to build pretty much anything.”

The RAHS Explorer app can be downloaded from Google Play or Apple stores.
