HERE IS A LINK TO PHONE APP FOR THE OTHER 70%. THE RAGBRAI WEB SITE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO LIST BECAUSE IT BELONGS TO A COMPANY YOU CAN BOOK WITH FOR THE RIDE. I AM NOT BOOKED WITH THE COMPANY.

Android users make up well over half of all smart phone users in America. Who made the decision to spend money on an iPhone app?? Seems like the better choice would have been to develop an app that was cross platform. There are companies right here in Iowa that specialize in that kind of thing.

There is a very cool FREE Android app available through Google Playstore. Search Pork Belly Ventures and you will find it. It has loads of info on the ride: daily route maps, overnight entertainment, links to local weather, etc, etc. etc.

The Website is a joke, Trying to find event times and other thing going on during the ride. The few I phone users have will have it good. I looking on the computer for my wife and I having trouble finding anything for this year events or times of what is going on. I hate to be the people that are using smart phones to navigate your site.
