Muruch App!

Muruch is now an app! Thanks to Dwnld, inc., a company trying to bring affordable apps to lil ol’ blogs like this one. Among my conditions for the app were that it be completely free to use and available for Android and Apple users. They really do have an app for everything now, including your favorite weird music blog. Muruch’s app is already available on the Apple store for ios iphones, ipads, etc. We’re trying to add it to Google’s Play store for Android devices but it hasn’t been approved yet.
