West Point, New York, home of the United States Military Academy, is one of the nation's most famous and unique landscapes. Established in 1802 to train engineer officers for the Army, West Point has for over two hundred years produced many of the country's greatest leaders, including Ulysses S. Grant, Dwight D. Eisenhower, George S. Patton, and Douglas A. MacArthur. Using nearly two hundred historical photos from the Library of Congress, National Archives, and collections at the United States Military Academy, here is West Point as it was from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. These priceless, black-and-white photos highlight cadets in classrooms, during military training, and on the fields of friendly strife. West Point buildings long demolished are shown as they were when Eisenhower and MacArthur were cadets. Also featured are special occasions such as graduations and visits by presidents, celebrities, and world leaders. This is West Point as you have never seen it, from the early days of photography through world events that thrust the Academy's graduates onto the world stage.

- Fixed a but fix that was effecting some users. When trying to upload a picture directly from the camera some people got an error. This should be fixed now and everyone should be able to take pictures and directly upload.
- Added some polish to the history list. Thumbnail images and expanded product descriptions are now visible for UPC, EAN, ISBN lookups.
- Other back end polish. Some improvements were made in various places to be more memory effecient. A couple routines that could run a little long have been moved to the background to keep the user interface moving quickly and prevent the app from exiting needlesly.
