Events for Me, an Eventbrite client app for Windows Phone

Events For Me is a Eventbrite client app for Windows Phone app that lets you tap into your Eventbrite account while on the go.  What is Eventbrite?  Eventbrite is an event managing service where you can promote the event, sell/buy tickets, and validate tickets at the door.  Eventbrite is used for fundraisers, concerts, sporting events and industry conferences.

Events For Me supports the event attendee aspect of Eventbrite’s services.  You can find events, buy tickets, display tickets for validation at the door, and more.  It is an interesting app and if you find yourself attending Eventbrite events, Events For Me is worth looking into.

The main pages for Events For Me include a My Tickets page that lists your tickets for upcoming events and an Events page that lists nearby events.  You will need to register with Eventbrite to use Events For Me.  Registration is free and can be done at Eventbrite’s website.

Events For Me Main Pages and Events Listing

At the bottom of the main pages, you will find control buttons that allow you to filter your events, refresh the screens, and search through the events by keyword.  Options up under the three-dot menu include providing feedback to the developer, share the app, rate the app, view the about screen and log in/out of your Eventbrite account.

Event listings cover a brief description of the event along with dates/times for the event.  At the bottom of the listing, control buttons are available to map out the event and buy a ticket to the event.  When you choose to buy a ticket, you are sent to the corresponding website for the event to complete the purchase.  After which, your ticket will be displayed on your My Tickets page.  You can then pull up ticket information and a QR Code that can be scanned at the event for validation.
