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.
Promising, but serious glitch
Like others, I have had issues with some of the features. Every time I try to work with the”Itinerary” feature, the app just automatically closes. I wouldn’t bother with this one until they fix it.
Love it. The documentary blues videos are wonderful too. I want to travel to many of these sites some day.
