Mainstream SmartPhone adoption is changing the way people surf the web, so we're arming our clients to dominate this entirely new app market. No other ticketing company offers so many customized ways to reach fans with such ease. As we've proven since bringing ticketing to the web in 1995, we'll continue to innovate so our partners can leverage every new platform -- from social to mobile and beyond.

I'm a huge live music fan and, after dealing with too many headaches, got excited to build apps to help people enjoy the experience and more easily find and buy tickets. We're culturally and technically a perfect match for Ticketfly and the company's great API makes it easy for us to build apps using existing venue and event data.

Social networking tools have opened up new ways to reach fans but at the same time have made it difficult to effectively promote live music events in a streamlined way. With Ticketfly, we no longer need to re-list events and details on various sites, saving us time and letting us get the word out to everyone who loves SF's live music scene. The Transmogrify app has taken the Ticketfly experience mobile with a sleek design that our customers love.
