Hamburg, 07. February 2012. CTS EVENTIM AG, European market leader in ticketing, is
launching a new mobile app for iPhone and Android. This simple to use app provides access to
150.000 events per year. By means of individually adjustable filters, users are able to search an
enormous range of events and book tickets for their personal favorites. The new offer specially
aims at the fast-growing community of smartphone owners.
Users are able to access information about oncoming shows of their favorite artists directly on
their mobile phones, including the options to purchase tickets, rate concerts via the „fanreport“
feature, and post their own photographs. This means that pictures taken by fans can already be
uploaded to the artist‘s gallery during the event. And photos posted by other concert-goers can be
viewed just as easily. Furthermore, it is possible to enter into a dialogue with other fans to ex
change impressions. Apart from that, the app provides news on culture, sports, musicals and
comedy. The function “search music” helps identify specially recommended events on the basis
of the user’s music library. If activated, the popular „ticketalarm“ provides information on selected
events via push message. Thus, fans run no risk of missing out on any of their personal top acts‘
appearances. On the whole, the special fan functions of the EVENTIM-Website have been nota
bly enhanced and are now ready for mobile use.
Concerts are linked to audio samples and background information, and can be shared with
friends via facebook. Users are also given the option to purchase mobile tickets that are stored in
their smartphones – which then serve as electronic admission passes.
The Android and iPhone apps comprise the same functions and have specially adapted usability
and design interfaces. Download and application are entirely free of charge. Following the initial
launch of the iPhone app in December 2010, the 2.01 version was extensively re-engineered,
under consideration of received user feedback.
Malte Blumenthal, Vice President New Media with CTS EVENTIM says: „Eventim.de can be
found wherever tickets are bought. This means that there is an obvious trend toward mobile solu
tions. Our attractive app offers customers a personalized way to access Eventim.de’s wide range
of services and events conveniently as well as easily. And the mobile fanreport and photo-upload
open up new channels of communication between concert-goers“.
