With Songkick Concerts, you'll never have to miss a gig of your favorite artist or band! The free app for iPhone scans your music library and tells you where and when your favorite artist will perform by tracking artists and locations.
What's the deal?
Songkick Concerts was originally an online service would scan the music library on your computer, but with the amount of people now storing music on mobile devices, a mobile app was inevitable.
Songkick Concerts scans the music library on your iPhone and tracks when artists will be playing in the city of your choosing. You can add as many locations as you want, with the added option of getting push notifications when the artist is in town or when tickets go on sale. You can RSVP to an event and mark it on your personal events calendar, as well as sharing it with friends on Twitter and Facebook. There is also an in-app map with venue details and locations.
Is it easy to use?
Songkick Concerts makes the option of tracking by artist or location a seamless process. By tapping on an artist, you get information about upcoming gigs around the world. Filtering by location will give you information about every gig in that city, a nice option if you want to discover new artists playing in your area.
Although tickets can't be purchased through Songkick Concerts itself, the app will go as far as redirecting you to ticket vendor websites to purchase tickets. They'll also inform you if they are already sold out. If your music library is out of date, adding or removing tracked artists is only a swipe away. You can also choose to re-scan your music library at any time through the app's settings.
Does it work?
Songkick Concerts is generally good and easy to navigate, but the occasional crash occurs when loading or switching between locations. Sometimes ticketing information is unclear or unavailable, which means that you have to go and search for the information yourself. Aside from these minor bugs, Songkick Concerts is generally stable and the concert dates and venue information are reliable.
Songkick Concerts is a must-have app for live music junkies that ensures you will never again miss a gig of your favorite artist or band!
