Free concert tracking mobile and web application Bandsintown is expanding its reach to include devices running the Android operating system. The app is now available as a free download in the Android marketplace and allows users to track artists, discover new artists, and RSVP to shows from their phones.
“We’ve been very happy with Bandsintown’s performance on Facebook and the iPhone and are excited to bring it to Android devices,” said Julien Mitelberg, CEO of Bandsintown. “Android growth has been rapid, with over 300 million devices in the market worldwide, and we’re thrilled that this audience can now tap into our service. The goal is to make sure that no one ever misses a concert from their favorite band, and this expansion is a big step toward achieving that.”
The Bandsintown app scans users’ music libraries and Facebook likes to automatically populate their Tracked Artists page. Users then get up-to-date info about when their favorite bands are coming to town, and recommendations about shows they might find interesting.
