This is a sort of NEWS app that tracks “gigs”. It shows you when and where the next concert will be, preferably near you. It can track the activity of you “favorite” singer/artist and so on.
All and all, it’s pretty useful if you fancy yourself the real, hardcore concert fan.
Official Description :
Download now so you never miss concerts by your favorite artists!
** Gigbeat 1.1 release coming this week. Update will include sync over wifi only, disabled automatic library scanning, a new home screen widget and much more. **
GigBeat helps you never miss another concert by your favorite artist in your town!
GigBeat scans your device’s music library and shows you when your favorite artists are on tour and where they will be. Don’t have any music stored on your device? That’s not a problem, GigBeat offers support for Songkick and Last.fm accounts so users can login and sync their artists from these services!
GigBeat will also remind you when a concert you’ve starred is coming up, or notify you when it finds new tour dates in your area for artists you are tracking.
GigBeat is currently fully supported on Android phones running version 2.1 or higher and is compatible with Honeycomb tablets, but a more polished version for tablets is coming very soon.
