    "I've been looking for a web app that would help me learn about the different beers around the world as I am opening my own pub. Progressive beer has done a great job of teaaching me all about different beers from around the world and what exactly they are like. It has certainly given me the edge on knowing what beers I will be serving at my establishment."

    "The English Accents Map is a fun little silly innovative web app. I've never seen something like this before, it reminds me of the original websites that bored.com would link to when I was a kid. It allows you to see all accents of the English language, where they originate, and how they sound. Someone can have a lot of fun with this. "

    "This seems like a great way to learn songs. It gives you the sheet music and it being played at the same time so you get the audio and the visual. It really help you realize what the song should sound like. It is much better than sheet music along when you have to find out what the song is supposed to sound like solely on rests and beats shown in the sheet music. This is great for people like me who play by ear as well as use sheet music. The music is even played by actual people and not just a computer. It even gives you a view of the piano keys or the guitar fret and where your fingers should be on the keys. It gives a video of the person playing the song also which is great. It's like having a teacher right there helping you. A really amazing site. "

    "This website/app seems to be a very well-crafted progressive web application--it conforms to whatever device the user is currently viewing it on for optimal shopping experiences. I would use this website if I needed to purchase discounted items like the ones that the website sells and it seems like the user experience is very stream-lined."

    "Finding things that are in good condition but at a great price helps us with budgeting while getting what we want. I can decorate my kids room or choose to redecorate my home at a shoe string budget with 5miles. I feel good that I give a second chance to things that otherwise would have been discarded. A win win for both parties. I love this app."

I had no prior experience and I didn't know what I was doing really. iBuildApp was a good way for me to get my feet wet, and while I'm still in the process, I'm really liking the results so far."
