Vertical Motion announces the release of the Fringe Fest FestFinder app for iOS mobile devices

Calgary, Canada – Vertical Motion is proud to announce the release of the Fringe Fest FestFinder app for iOS mobile devices. The app is launching with data about the Calgary Fringe Festival, and plans to grow to include other festivals within the next year.

Fringe Festival attendees who use the app will be able to keep up on the latest news, decide between available shows, block out a viewing schedule, and quickly fire off their plans to a friend so they can coordinate an evening of entertainment. FestFinders aggregates festival blogs, twitter accounts, flickr, and facebook feeds so that breaking news is close to hand. But most importantly, detailed show descriptions and schedule information is available at the touch of a finger, and building a personal itinerary couldn’t be easier. Features of FestFinder include:

  • Latest News: Keeps users in the loop with all the Festival’s updates, and allows them fire back opinions through the twitter and facebook interfaces
  • Show Details: View all the available shows by timeline or alphabetically
  • Schedule Itinerary: Users can create an itinerary for the festival with a few clicks of a button
    • The “Collision detection” feature prevents double-booking for users
    • Share Schedule: Users can share and exchange schedules keeping fellow show attendees in the loop

The FestFinder app is available for free in the iTunes App Store.
