A FREE MOBILE GUIDE TO NEW ORLEANS MUSIC LANDMARKS, POCKET FIYO IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD ONTO PHONES AND TABLETS

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

 A FREE MOBILE GUIDE TO NEW ORLEANS MUSIC LANDMARKS, POCKET FIYO IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD ONTO PHONES AND TABLETS

New nonprofit app to benefit the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic and The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders

Pocket Fiyo, a free guide to New Orleans music landmarks for mobile phones and tablet computers, is now available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Download the app and discover the music history around every corner in New Orleans, from J & M Recording Service to the French Opera House to Mahalia Jackson's final resting place.

Launching with detailed descriptions, maps and photos of 20 landmarks from multiple musical genres, the nonprofit app will benefit the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic and The Roots of Music Marching Crusaders via small sponsorship banners on the app. Sponsors can put their brand in the pockets of engaged music fans while showing their support for the health of the city's music scene, both present and future.

Pocket Fiyo first took shape in April 2013 at a Codemkrs.com hackathon at the University of New Orleans.  Julie A. Greene, a UNO student and member of the hackathon team that built the app, has continued in the role of designer-developer.  The concept and content are by Dave Walker, a New Orleans journalist whose 1992 book "American Rock ‘n' Roll Tour" (Thunder's Mouth Press) was the first travel guide to pop-music landmarks around the country. 

To learn more about Pocket Fiyo, visit the app's companion webpage, PocketFiyo.org, or email PocketFiyo@gmail.com.
