Tiggits for iPhone posted
FurrySoft has released Tiggits for iPhone, a ticket search and purchasing app focused on concert, sports and theater events. The new app gives users access to shows across North America via TicketNetwork, which is partnering with Tiggits and will provide secure transactions for user purchases. Users have four screens to work from: the Featured screen displays popular events with long runs, like Broadway shows or a concert series, while the Top 25 tab lists the most popular shows, concerts, etc. currently playing. The Search tab allows users to find more specific events, segregated by actor, performer, venue or city, while the fourth tab -- Info -- gives users options like tips on use, customer service contacts and support numbers.
After locating an event, Tiggits supports purchasing tickets directly without the need for calls to ticket agents. As users progress through the app, it provides supporting information like seating charts and venue maps. After a purchase is complete a confirmation screen lists details, and sends out a matching e-mail. Tiggits also offers expedited shipping options in the US and Canada.
Tiggits is now available on the App Store for free, but requires an iPhone or iPod touch with the v2.1 firmware or better. A coupon for 5 percent off ticket purchases (using the code GRAND) is being offered as a grand opening bonus.
