Find Independent Bookstores around the country, using the Indie Bookstore Finder. More than 400 stores at launch, with more to come. Saturday April 30th is Independent Bookstore Day, and you can use this app to find everyone near you celebrating it. Many of the stores are having special events, author appearances and books you can only find from your independent book store.
Independent bookstores make a difference in your community, more than buying from big box stores or that major online book retailer that shall not be named. Your local shop owners support local causes, spend their money in the same community you do, or in the community you're visiting.
Indie Bookstore Finder is a collaboration between GoLocalApps and City Book Review. We started our business doing book reviews and created an app back in 2009 to promote our book reviews for children. Since that app, we spun off the app development business into GoLocalApps and now are back working together again.

Great Concept, Not good App
The idea and premise behind the 3/50 project is good. Surprised that it is called look local, not 3/50 project like its creator. The part that is surprising is how slow the app runs. This is not because of the phone or network, it is an app issue. If you can straighten out the slowness issues this might be a good app. Taking more than five minutes to search for a local company is not cool.
Finally...a location based app that
I am so happy this app has been made. I am sick of all the other apps that don't provide the "hidden gems" of the world that only the locals know about. I know this app is new and the developer says more listings are coming but I already found 3 shops and 1 restaurant that I wouldn't have otherwise known about. I am excited to learn about new local businesses in my area or wherever I may travel. THE BEST LOCATION BASED APP ever!
I LOVE the app, and your entire program (I'm a customer and fan of buying local, not a brick & mortar myself).
Looking forward to more listings as they come (and I'm sure they will, many of my favorite local spots have 3/50 signs prominently displayed). I will definitely use this both at home, and when traveling to a new city..... I'd much rather seek out the local flavor for shopping or eating options. Thanks for this!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
