The Block Island App was started on July 4, 2018 by Rob Lucier and Will Gasner.   Rob is married to an Islander and has been coming to BI since the early 80’s.  Will grew up on the Island and went to the Block Island school. Will is also a 12th generation Islander.  

Both of us have worked in the technology/web industry for years. Our goal was to create an easy-to-use app to give visitors and Islanders alike access to all information on Block Island.   

We also love feedback so don’t hesitate to contact us. 

The App is optimized to work on all Apple and Android phones. In addition, it will work on any device via a browser, just go to m.theblockislandapp.com. For use on Block Island we recommend using the mobile app for the best experience.

All paid listings are for the calendar year. The app is live 24 X 7 and 365 days a year. So even during the winter your listing is still active. You can update your description if you are off island so people are aware but you stay present on peoples’ phones year round.
