The Grapevine is a brand new app from Candid Innovations that helps music fans find other fans who are selling concert tickets in their local area, and allows people to advertise and search for jobs, accommodation, and stuff for sale based on their current location.
Unlike most classified ad websites, once a user has downloaded The Grapevine, they can post new ads and edit their existing ads as many times as they want, for free!
Here’s what our CEO Edward Cooper has to say about it:
“The idea came about as I was continually frustrated that concerts for bands I wanted to see would sell out very fast, then lots of tickets would appear on ebay with big price mark-ups, obviously being sold by touts for a profit.
I wanted to create and app that would allow real music fans to exchange their tickets for reasonable prices and so The Grapevine was born!
You can also search for stuff for sale, accommodation and jobs, phone / email the seller direct from your phone, and even get directions to where they are.
One really cool feature is you can shake your phone on the homescreen, and the app will search for any tickets for sale by artists in your music library!
We’ve already got over half a million posts so it’s getting exciting”
And a word from our CTO Serkan Gunes:
“What we wanted to do with The Grapevine was design a classifieds app from the ground up specifically for the mobile platform, rather than try and port a web based solution just as a sideshow for an existing website.
This has meant we have been able to produce a super slick, simple, unique product which fully leverages all the added benefits the mobile platform provides such as GPS location and gesture based search.
And because we have no website to support, we have been able to avoid slower HTML based technology which really makes our search times truly impressive”
