Mission and Founders

Paper guides, paper maps, paper phone books, slow web sites, poor internet connectivity…welcome to Block Island. That was until Rob and his nephew Will came up with a better solution. The Block Island App the definitive app for the Island. Everything right on your phone even with spotty connectivity.

Our mission is to give visitors and islander alike easy access to ferry schedules, restaurants and shopping information, outdoor activities, weather and tide schedules, upcoming events, Island services, BI Times news and more right on their phone. In addition, we give Island stores, restaurants and service providers new ways to reach and promote their place of business.

We hope you like it and tell your friends about us!
