The Hills & Dales app presents a guided tour of the Hills & Dales Estate, the historic home of the Fuller E. Callaway Family in LaGrange, Georgia.  The app uses a generic XML format to store tours our the server, with any number of stops.  Each stop contains text, graphics and audio and is downloaded to the device for offline playback.  The tour mimics the familiar controls of the iPod app, allowing the user to play, pause, and shuffle through stops at his/her own speed.  As the data is server based the content is easily updatable.  Deployed as an Ad Hoc distribution.
