The issue with applications like this is that they require a critical mass of listings to make them useful. The application itself is well thought out and useful, but there aren’t enough listings to drive significant traffic yet. Plus the application is a bit thin in the functionality space (it would be nice if there were more links to photos and music) to make it a more complete application.
