Apple Watch mania is in full swing and like most app based companies, the smarter ones in music tech are jumping on the bandwagon with apps for the Apple wearable. Today Bandsintown joined Pandora, iHeartRadio, Shazam, TuneIn and a handful of other music related Apple Watch apps.
Bandsintown ha become on of the first first music apps to implement the Apple Watch iOS SDK with WatchKit, which allows developers to build bite-size notifications into a customizable user interface that syncs with their iPhone.
When users install Bandsintown on their iPhone, their ‘Just Announced’ show notifications will automatically be pushed to their always-on Apple Watch where they can take action right from their wrist. Concert-goers can indicate if they’re “Going” , “Interested” to RSVP or “Dismiss”.
Bandsintown Apple Watch users can also glance at their wrist to see the most popular show happening tonight near the users’ location. This notification will change each day highlighting the hottest local show. There's also a list of the most popular concerts of the day in the users’ city.
Last year, Bandsintown launched an Android Wear app.
