There is something about summer concert season that embraces the very essence of summertime: warm weather, outdoor venues, day-long music festivals, and world famous bands on-tour performing in your city.
With the overwhelming number of concerts this season, fans want a consolidated, simplified way to purchase tickets, keep track of dates and venues, and look for easy ways to document their concert through live blogging.
To help concert-goers in cities and towns across the country, Appitalism.com, the mobile app superstore, has put together a list of the top apps to help them get the most out of their summer concert season.
· Concert Finder (Free for Android) – Find concerts going on around the U.S. Search for specific artists or browse what concerts are going on in a particular city. Keep track of favorite artists, view event photos, get directions to venues, buy tickets and add events to your calendar. Post events to Twitter and Facebook.
· iConcertCal ($2.99 for Apple iPhone) – iConcertCal pulls the artists from your phone or home computer and displays upcoming concerts in list and calendar form.
· Concert Rat (Free for Apple iPhone) – An easy way to live blog text and photos from your music event. Anything you post is captured also in your Concert Rat diary, which is accessible from within the app, or at ConcertRat.com for easy access later. Posts go to your Facebook wall and Twitter. After the show, go to ConcertRat.com to edit your photos, rework your posts into a review, fix titles in the setlist, etc.
