Willamette Valley on an iPhone app

The largest iPhone blog in the U.S. just published a review of the first iPhone travel guide for the Willamette Valley:
Anyone who owns an iPhone knows that it's become increasingly difficult to navigate the iTunes App Store, sifting through a maze of mundane apps with hopes of uncovering an authentic gem created to actually make your life easier.
I was genuinely excited to sit down with budding developer and former wine distributor Dana Jackson, to discuss his debut app release which I found to be a rare treat for those who appreciate the art of the find when it comes to discovering new wines. The app takes users on a personal tour of Oregon's Willamette Valley wine region. A tour of wineries that Jackson has hand-tooled to his own specifications.
In sharp contrast to many iPhone travel apps, the Willamette Valley ($4.99) travel guide doesn't rely on scraping data from various websites that anyone with minor search engine skills could easily access online. Every photo, tour map and written review were created and poured over by Jackson himself. Offering up well thought out insights into the Willamette wine region.
One of the app's clever highlights is the Most Overrated - Usual Suspects section where Jackson offers users fair warning about wineries, restaurants and lodging that he considers ho hum tourist traps. Money pits that most of us are drawn to like mindless lemmings simply because we don't know any better."
