app of The week Tick­etmaster’s new app for Ir­ish mu­sic fans has gone live. It’s a new way to get tick­ets and find event in­for­ma­tion while you’re on the move. It makes it that bit eas­ier when you’re try­ing to catch an early sale and are stuck on the com­mute to work. And it has some handy alerts as well, so you can keep up to date with any changes or news about events you’ve bought tick­ets for. Not only will the app show you events based on lo­ca­tion, but will also scan your mu­sic and give you rec­om­men­da­tions for up­com­ing events based on the re­sults. If you set an artist as a favourite, you’ll be no­ti­fied when tick­ets are an­nounced or go on sale. You can also find out artist in­for­ma­tion or take a look at past set lists, and there’s the abil­ity to add events to your phone’s cal­en­dar. There’s the ubiq­ui­tous so­cial shar­ing, so you can tweet your events, post them to a friend’s Face­book wall or just email it to them. One thing miss­ing is Pass­book in­te­gra­tion, so you will still need printed tick­ets. CIARA O’BRIEN
