Ease:

2/5

Looks great, easy to follow, but kept crashing when I tried to play audio examples. I was able to read all the facts, and see the pictures.

Intelligence:

3/5

A brilliant idea for an app, but I couldn’t use all its features.

Extras:

1/5

Crashing issues make this app only partly useable.

Gossip:

1/5

No one appears to be using this app and the developer hasn’t updated it in a couple years.

Musician's Note

I was really excited about this app, but it kept crashing and I couldn’t use all its features. I would love to try it again, if the developer fixes it up.

What got me interested is that the app doles out just one piece of jazz history per day. I looked forward to learning the most significant jazz facts and jazz songs without drowning in an endless sea of too-much detail. I also love that the app doesn’t require me to know complicated musical terms and will provide recordings to accompany all the info.
