Say Hello to Songkick Concerts on Android
It’s here! Lots of you have been asking for the Songkick experience on Android, and we’re super excited to tell you today that our new app is now available to download on Google Play.
We’ve taken advantage of the latest Ice Cream Sandwich user experience standards to give our Android app a killer feature set. For example, the home screen widget provides real-time updates when your favorite bands announce tour dates near you.
Another cool feature is the sexytime gesture-based navigation. It’s easy to swipe between your plans, new concerts and all concerts in your location. And of course notifications ensure you find out about new concerts before tickets go on sale.
You can track your favorite artists from your Android music library, Google Music account, Pandora or Last.fm app, taking advantage of the Android 4.0 content provider framework. Take all the things you’ve come to love about the Songkick experience on the go on your Android device.
Other Android features we’re excited about:
- Import your favorite artists from your Facebook, Pandora or Last.fm accounts.
- Jump-to-letter alphabet scrolling that makes it quick to move through your tracked bands.
- Invite friends to concerts, and add them to your Google Calendar.
- Embedded Google Maps make navigation quick and easy.
A few of you keen beans volunteered to road test the app for us while we were still in development, and here’s what you some of you said:
“The app looks fantastic, very polished, just beautiful overall”
“I have recently planned a trip overseas and it was very simple to add the city I was going to and find some acts that I like touring on these dates”
“It uses the Android 4 conventions like filtering content from the top bar beautifully. Great job!”
“Definitely the best concert app for Android I’ve seen.”
“I love its simplicity and coolness. The switching between the menu items is pretty cozy and smooth.”
A hearty thank you goes out to those who gave us valuable feedback during our testing phase. We couldn’t do it without your support.
All Android users can get in on the fun. Download Songkick Concerts for Android here:
