Pop Quiz!

Are you a resident of Maryland who is proud of the state you live in? Are you someone who knows many interesting facts about this region and wants to put your knowledge to the test? I have been informed about a company called GPSmyCity that creates tour guide applications for the iPhone, which provide useful traveler's information about any city in the United States. It's like a GPS device for your phone! So, if you're in the city and you need to know where the nearest mall, restaurant, or hotel is, this app can tell you. I imagine this tool is also very helpful if you get lost in a place that you are unfamiliar with.

You could win three free city walk iPhone applications developed by GPSmyCity.com to any city of your choice. All you have to do is answer the questions to this quiz I'm about to share with you. The quiz includes facts and trivia about the state of Maryland. The people who answer the most questions correctly will win the three free applications. You must send your answers to quiz@gpsmycity.com. Good luck!
