Millennials probably won't remember but it wasn't that long ago that you could just show up on the day and buy a ticket at a venue to catch the best shows, gigs or sporting events in town. Unless it was something very special and in high demand all you had to do was to turn up at the box office, hand over your hard-earned cash and you could walk right in. Now, if you're loaded with cash there are always ways to get a same day ticket but these days, you tend to have to book weeks or sometimes months ahead if you want to get a decent seat at a reasonable price for the top events. Even then, it can hardly be called an easy buy. 


Of course, there are now plenty of ticket resellers out there that want to place themselves in the middle ground between the seller and the buyer but some have proven to be rather unscrupulous in their dealings. While most are totally honest and above board, some have been known to sell dodgy tickets or charge prices that are way over the cover price so you've got to be careful who you are dealing with. So here we introduce a convenient, trustworthy and very comprehensive entertainment app for iOS that hopes to become the goto buying and selling mobile ticket outlet for all the top sport, music and theatrical events in town. 


Vivid Seats is a free app for iPhone and iPad that gives users access to seats to must-see games and sporting events, the hottest 'sold out' concerts and any number of star-studded Broadway shows. However, that's not all. You can also quickly and easily search the Vivid Seats marketplace and find great tickets to any live events whether they are in your local area or on the other side of the country. For added peace-of-mind, customers also get the benefit of a 100% buyer guarantee and in-house order support which is available daily by phone. 


As I mentioned earlier, Vivid Seats is not only a place to buy and sell tickets. It's much more than that. For starters, the app can be personalized to suit your taste in entertainment. You'll see recently viewed events and you can set the app up to show when your favorite entertainers are coming to your area. Other features include interactive seating maps and a 'seat view' visual so you'll see what your seat actually gives you as well as easy to use filters to make it simple to search for price, section, row, quantity, ticket type and date range.


You can buy tickets for all the major sporting events like NBA, NFL, MLB, NCAA and NHL right up until game time. You'll also be able to use your phone's GPS to discover which bands are playing locally and what events are nearby but you can search for tickets right across the whole marketplace. If you are a ticket reseller there are no restrictions and you can list available tickets either above or below face value. Last but not least, when you buy mobile e-tickets you can access them directly from the app for extra convenience rather than having to produce printouts at the door. Vivid Seats is the largest independent mobile ticket marketplace for purchasing last minute tickets. It can be downloaded for free right now from the App Store and is also available for Android.
