If you are someone who enjoys attending live concerts, theater productions, or sporting events, this is one app you definitely want to check out. Released on June 2, the StubHub app offers event goers the opportunity to search for resell tickets wherever their travels may take them. Users who live close to, or who are planning travel to major cities (like New York City) will especially benefit from downloading this Apple app.
Users have the option of searching from your current location, or you can set the location for someplace to which you will be traveling. Those folks who are last minute planners and willing to pay the extra price – these are, of course, resold tickets – will love the ease of being able to quickly search for high demand tickets without the hassle of having to log onto the Internet and find resold ticket sites.
This Apple app version of the StubHub website has one very cool extra feature. From your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (your device must sport OS 3.1 or higher), you can go to the Favorites option on the StubHub app and select iPod Artists. From there you can search for upcoming concerts and available tickets for the selected artist either locally or for all regions – all while your iPod is playing in the background.
Another great feature of this app is the ability to email event information to friends and family, as well as the option to post the event link to your Facebook or Twitter account. This is a great way to help plan group events, making it easy for every person to view and purchase their own ticket.
StubHub gives you the ability to search for upcoming events (within the next seven days) or events scheduled as far out as announced by the venues. You can search by the type of event, the venue, the city location, or by name.
The app version of the website is so much more user friendly and easy to use. Anyone who enjoys attending live events, this is a must-have FREE App. If for no other reason, you have to download the app to try out the iPod Artist search option – a very cool addition!
