Now I’m not a big fan of StubHub – I really believe that with proper preparation and planning you can get face value tickets for events and avoid paying inflated fees for tickets, but that’s not always the case.
Last-Minute decisions to attend an event can make ticket buying a challenge, especially if you’re looking for tickets day of show. In that situation it can get dicey with online brokers, some of those tickets may not be delivered in time, or you may need to meet in a StarBucks or some other location to collect your tickets before entering the venue.
With their new mobile app StubHub has built a great set of features for the concert-goer and packed them into a tight package. You can even use your phone or tablet as a ticket, scanning the screen at the door so you don’t need to bother with printing tickets or meeting up with brokers in a dark alley.
Here’s what else is new in the app:
Mobile tickets: Get into events at select venues with your iPhone – no need to print.
New optimized iOS 7 interface
