For long-time readers of Static, you might remember our old “App of the Week” column. While we’ve moved from profiling a weekly app that piques our interest, we do like to share ones that strike our fancy from time to time. Let’s rename the column “App Profile.” This week, we’ve found an app that will get you out of the house and enjoying live events with your friends.
Like many of you, the folks at BARS+TONE need a bit of inspiration from time to time. After all, no one wants to be a homebody, but sometimes it’s hard to find that perfect band to see or exhibition to visit. We recently discovered Eventseeker, an app that taps into your iPhone music library and your Facebook likes of artists, bands, sports teams and comedians. It organizes them in a way that makes sense and tells you when a band, team or artist are in town. Eventseeker actually encourages you to step away from your computer and get out into the real world to enjoy these bands and events live in-person with your friends. Brilliant!
After syncing with your phone and Facebook account, you can follow and like more artists through a manual search. Eventseeker suggests events and concerts to attend based on the artists you follow. It notifies you as soon as tickets go on sale and even suggests friends to invite. So you’ll be sure to get the tickets and enjoy the show with friends. Again, brilliant!
Developed by Wcities, a city and event guide provider, Eventseeker also has geo-loco capabilities. Next time you travel, Eventseeker easily allows you to plan events in your destination city, based upon your likes.
