The Abandoned Houses app allows users to take a picture of an abandoned house, capture its gps coordinates, and additionally give it a name. Pressing the "Done" button saves this information in your "List". To retrieve this information, simply select the house from your house list to view its details.

Once you are on the detail page, this app gives you the ability to email or tweet the house details and if there is a picture of an abandoned house, touching the picture will take you to another screen where you can pan and zoom around on it. Double tapping the picture will re-center the picture to the screen.

To remove a house from the list, tap the "List" tab bar button, then tap the "Edit" button. Next tap on the small red circle to the left of the house you wish to remove. After doing this, tap the red delete button. This will remove the abandoned house from your "List".

To view the location of all houses in your list plotted on a map, tap the "Map" tab bar button. This will drop a purple pin onto the location of all entries in your house list. The map allows users to zoom in or out on locations. Choose between Standard, Satellite, and Hybrid.

This app also allows users to share abandoned house information between ios devices that have the Abandoned Houses App installed and bluetooth capabilities. To send information between devices tap on the "Share" tab bar button. This will take you to a screen where you can connect ios devices. Once a connection has been established with another device (or devices) select a house from the "Share" list. The selected house will be highlighted in blue. Once selected, the "Send" button will activate. Tap the send button to send the information to all connected ios devices. Once sent, it is removed from the "Share" list only. It has not been permanently removed. To restore the "Share" list tap the "Regen" button. This will regenerate the list based on your house list. Tapping the "Disconnect" button will disconnect all connected devices.
