Using the app for the first time requires you to connect with your Facebook Account. This is great because we can recommend great events for you which are very personalised. Going to an event alone is sometimes really boring & takes a lot of the excitement away. Egotickets Mobile takes care of that for you by connecting you to events that your friends are attending and a lot more.

We spent a great deal of time trying to come up with the perfect home screen that will be both appealing and makes sense to our users. The home screen shows the featured events in very large pictures and that takes about 60% of the devises screen. The rest of the screen has four simple action buttons

Event Date Labelling & Improvements

At Encodev Labs we are exponentially passionate about how UI design affects our end users in very meaningful ways. One of our biggest priority & challenge is to empower users to significantly speed up how they digest information and make decisions by simply looking at highlight areas when a chuck of information is presented to them.

Without this simple label it would be pain processing 16th March 2013 as Tomorrow if you have forgotten today’s date as most of us do.

 “Absolutely right! Ticketing is where it all falls short of excellent”

We feel your pain. Your simple quest to sell a seat to your event always turns into a complex maze of activities that overwhelms you and your attendees. From print-houses to partner sales shops, supermarkets and other middlemen this labyrinth adds unnecessary costs along every turn. The outcome? An overpriced paper that is a hustle for your fans to get in town and a
