I was wondering when they might put out an application for the iPhone/iTouch.
iConcertCal is now available for the iPhone. Just like the iTunes plugin, the app brings you a personalized, concert calendar so you can easily find out when your favorite bands are playing shows in your city. If any of the artists in your music library are playing in your area, they will automatically show up in a My Shows list. A seperate list called All Shows will let you browse through any and all concerts in your city.
Each concert listing has:
* links to purchase tickets
* an email option to send a reminder to yourself or to alert your friends about a concert
* a built in map to the venue with directions
* a preview button that will allow you to listen to what each of the bands sound like to help you decide if you want to go
You can also look for concerts by browsing specific venues. Venues can be sorted by distance or by name. And you can filter the view to only show venues that have concerts today.
If you find a concert with an artists that you like, you can add the artist to your personal artists list on the fly by clicking on the white star above the concert. Whenever you add an artist to your list, their shows will always be automatically added to your My Shows list.
If you turn the app on its side, you will see a full calendar month view which makes it even easier to find shows on a particular day of the week. Your personal shows are visible on one side, and all concerts in your city are shown on the other. Your location and search radius can be set in the options tab. And if you are interested, you can add additional locations and easily switch to see concerts in other cities.
Also, if you have a lot of bands on your home computer that are not on your phone, you can easily setup your phone to sync your artists lists with your desktop using our free iTunes plugin.
