Recently announced is that TiqIQ, a ticket aggregator and search engine for live events, has launched its new mobile app targeted at iOS devices. Users are able to use the app to search for tickets for sporting events, concerts, Broadway shows and more. It even offers a point reward system to gain a discount on ticket prices.
Users are able to search through featured events nearby based on category and event dates. To favourite an event and subscribe to updates users can swipe right and to dismiss the event they can swipe left. To view the list of ticket options, sorted by price, they can tap the event. This shows results which can be filtered by particular seating area or price range, amongst other options. Users are also able to set an alert so that they are notified of price drops if the pricing is too expensive.
Additionally, users can view single types of events such as college sports events or theatre performances. Users are also able to tap on a heart icon to favourite performers while browsing elsewhere. The favoured performers are then listed on the users profile allowing them to search through upcoming events for the particular artist or team.
The IQ Rewards Platform within the app is a loyalty program which allows users to receive a discount of up to 10% off certain tickets from the TiqIQ’s network of sellers. Users are able to earn more points the more they interact with the app and in turn, earn greater discounts.
Jesse Lawrence, the founder and CEO of TiqIQ said in a recent statement “ With the TiqIQ app, we’re bringing true transparency and the most competitive prices to fans directly on their phone. The more they use the app to do things like track deals, set price alerts and purchase tickets, the more they save. It’s a win-win!”
TiqIQ is available for a free download from the iTunes App Store.
