Love it. The documentary blues videos are wonderful too. I want to travel to many of these sites some day.

A Must Have if You Are a Blues Fan

My son Dylan and I recently drove down Highway 61 from the Canadian border to New Orleans. We went to the Bob Dylan days festival in Duluth and Hibbing, MN then headed on down the road. This app made it so easy to find all the crucial blues spots. We met with Po Monkey outside his Juke Joint, visited Robert Johnson's gravestone, saw the Crossroads, and a few museums, all because of this app. Our only suggestions would be to have the color of the markers change on the map once you have checked in, so that you can visualize where to head to next, and to connect to google maps for directions.

Pretty Good

A welcome addition to any blues enthusiast collection. As a musician, I fully appreciate the efforts put into this little app. It's chock full of blues history. And there's a lot in here I didn't know. I don't think anyone will be disappointed considering it's free! I give it 4 stars because it could probably use a few minor tweaks in terms of functionality (zooming in on photos would be nice) but overall a nice effort here. As for some of the 'crash issues' others mentioned here, I've had none yet.
