PRESS RELEASE: “FanSnap Launches iPhone Application of Leading Ticket Search Engine”
PALO ALTO, CA (FanSnap) August 12, 2010 – FanSnap®, the largest live event ticket search engine for fans, today announced the launch of the FanSnap Application for iPhone®, iPod Touch® and iPad®. FanSnap’s iPhone application is free in the iTunes app store [link] just in time for the NFL® and NCAA® football seasons, the approaching MLB® playoffs, the concert and Broadway seasons, and the announcement of the new NBA® schedule.
Perfect for fans who are looking for hot, even sold out, events, while they are on the go, the FanSnap tickets app puts 15 million sports, theater and concert tickets in their pocket! With the FanSnap app, fans who want to catch a nearby game, concert, or show – even the same day – can find and buy tickets from their iPhone.
With the FanSnap tickets app, fans can:
-See a list of the hottest live events nearby using the iPhone’s built-in location finder.
-Access local sports teams, concert and theater events via one-touch icons that the app automatically generates.
-Refer to FanSnap’s detailed venue maps, including row level labeling.
-See photos of the view from sections of the venue (available for many venues).
-Access previous saved searches for their favorite teams, performing artists, or shows.

“No matter where they are, fans looking for sports, theater, and concert tickets now can truly find the best tickets for less with the FanSnap app,” said Mike Janes, CEO of FanSnap. “The mobile ‘web app’ version of FanSnap.com was recently named one of Boston Globe Magazine’s ‘15 Must-Have Local Apps.’ We have improved upon that with the addition of the maps and venue photos with the goal of making the FanSnap app an indispensible resource for fans.”
The FanSnap app is particularly useful for spur of the moment ticket buying, business travelers, and vacationing fans. FanSnap search results include tickets from dozens of the most trusted ticket companies in the U.S., so a search, for example, for tickets behind home plate to tonight’s game, or for concerts playing locally this weekend for less than $50 a ticket, is a snap.
