Summer music festival season is right around the corner and festivals are looking for new ways to enhance our experience while at an event. One thing almost all the festivals are doing is creating interactive apps for iPhone and Android, to assist in making your own schedule to full bio information on all the artists performing.
One App I will be using this year is the newly released Rochester International Jazz Festival app. The app makes it easy for festival fans to get the latest news, schedule, artist information, photos, maps, venues, travel information and buy tickets. The Android app is new this year for the festival while the iPhone app has been revamped to include several new options for app users. Both apps are free, available now for download, and include a new photo booth feature where you can take photos at the festival and share.
There are also options to: Select favorite artists, share information on Facebook and Twitter or email, create a personal festival agenda, use the search tool for easy browsing through concert files and artist profiles and festival goers can get a concert reminder alert for to shows about to start. How did we ever survive life before apps like this? I remember lots of maps and bulky event programs to sift through in my satchel, I say thank goodness for apps like this.
