I ♥ Concerts
By 12 Spokes
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Keep your finger on the pulse of the live music scene in your city. I Heart Concerts displays all the bands that are playing live within a 50-mile radius. See all the upcoming shows for the next two weeks, and click on the band's name to see a photo, map the venue and get more information about the group. NEW: Look for concerts in your current location, or select another city to see who's playing there!
I Heart Concerts covers more than 21,000 venues in 5,500 cities worldwide—not just the big ones, either—and we're adding new ones all the time!
What's New in Version 1.3
Version 1.3 is a small update that adds a user setting that allows you to expand your timeframe for upcoming concerts. See shows coming in the next two weeks, or extend the timeline up to three months to see who's playing further down the road.
Ok but Not What U Pay For
Good potential but $2 is too much considering the limitations of this app. Hopefully many updates and improvements are on the horizon or I will have felt cheated out of my money.
1. Expanded calendar - a previous reviewer stated 3 mo, I'm only seeing 14 days. A popular act will be sold out by the time you see them on the app.
2. Artist Search
3. Sort by Venue
4. Link to Venue Website
5. Link to purchase tickets.
These are just the basics to make the app complete. For a little sugar on top they could add a link to iTunes to purchase the artists' music.
It's an ok program. It should have the following options though:
-ability to add your favorite artists o a list and then you can go to a part of the program that will tell you upcoming show or send you alerts when they are coming to your city
For me, the main one is the first point above. I don't want to have to search a huge list of randoms. I want to just put in the artists I'm interested in and then a list shows when they'll be in my area
This app is good. For those who keep saying you wish you can search in other cities you can just type the zipcode and also you can search up to shows up to 3 months in advance. Just change the settings from the settings icon. The only thing this needs is to be able to bookmark the shows or save or reminder. Great app
