Extra Ticket app review: buy and sell tickets to major concerts and sporting events



Finding a ticket to see your favorite football team or your favorite music band can be a frustrating process – especially if you wait for the day of the event. If you’ve ever tried to buy a set of tickets from a scalper at a concert or sporting event you know exactly what I mean. If it’s a sold-out event these characters are going to charge you through the nose and even if it isn’t sold-out scalpers are good at getting the most they possibly can out of you. If you’d prefer to deal with someone with a little more scruples, someone just like you, then the Extra Ticket app may be the answer you’ve been looking for. This app provides ordinary people with a forum to buy and sell tickets to major events they plan on attending. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Get Your Tickets Here

There are tons of apps that you can use to purchase tickets for major concerts and sporting events. Were all familiar with the popular ones such as Ticketmaster and StubHub, but almost all of these are major corporations acting as intermediaries between the event and you. What makes Extra Ticket different is that they actually provide a service that brings together one event goer with another. For example, perhaps you’ve got four tickets to an NFL football game but a couple of friends couldn’t make it and you end up with two extra tickets – rather than just accepting the loss on this, you can use the Extra Ticket app to resell these tickets to someone else nearby that wants to attend the event.

We’re not talking about people that make money by deliberately buying extra tickets for an event and selling them out front of the stadium – were just talking about an average man or woman like you that has a couple of extra tickets.

One of the best parts about this app is that it actually includes some built-in protection for users. You can’t sign up for this site unless you’re willing to create a profile which includes: providing your name, phone number, email address, and a recent picture of yourself. Scalpers don’t have to do any of this, which makes it hard to track them down if they’ve ripped you off. There aren’t any ads or in-app purchases – just a simple user interface that provides a forum for people to buy and sell tickets. This app will require 3.5 MB of available space on your iOS device.

How It Works

After you get to the sign-up process, which only takes a couple of minutes, you can get started right away with either buying or selling a ticket. The main interface features a simple listing of available tickets in your area, with three simple tabs at the top of the app depending on what you’re looking for. The first tab is an All tab which includes both tickets for sale and tickets you want to sell. You can also filter by tickets for sale or tickets wanted for sale – each of these options has its own separate tab. There is also a handy search bar where you can enter a specific event name.

If you want to add your name to the list of people looking for tickets to a particular event you simply tap on the menu bar in the top left-hand corner, and then tap on buy ticket. You can then enter all of the information about the particular event you’re trying to buy tickets for. If there’s someone nearby you with tickets to that event there’s a good chance they’re going to contact you. This is a nice simple app, with simple tools that get the job done.
