This morning, I decide to wake up bright and early, because I wanted to land some tickets to an upcoming Coldplay concert. Seeing how Chris Martin says that he’s considering retirement, this may be my last chance to watch Coldplay live. I just had to go.
In going through this process, I booted up my laptop and hopped onto the Ticketmaster website, looking for the best available seats. This is a luxury I have because I work from home, but what about people who happen to be on the road when tickets become available for sale? Surfing through the Ticketmaster site on a smartphone is not the most pleasing of experiences.
To help you buy tickets on the go, we will soon be seeing the release of Ticketmaster for BlackBerry smartphones, an application that directly connects your ‘Berry to a variety of event tickets. Anything that you can find on the Ticketmaster site, from hockey games to theatre tickets, will be made available through the BlackBerry. As with the site, you can browse listings, pick seats, and buy tickets.
Ticketmaster for BlackBerry is also compatible with BlackBerry Wallet, so it can help you fill in your credit card and shipping information as well. The app isn’t quite ready to go, but you can sign up for updates so that you’ll be the first to know.
