ShowScoop Launches Mobile App for Artist Tour Dates and Tour Reviews.

ShowScoop is a Social Network for Artist Tour Dates, Tour Reviews and Concert Photos.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ShowScoop announced the release of the mobile application ShowScoop Concerts for the iPhone, available for free download in the iTunes Store. With ShowScoop users can rate how bands perform live; like a Yelp! for concerts. ShowScoop is also the first concert application to incorporate Instagram's best-in-class api standards so that users can post concert photos on the ShowScoop and Instagram platform simultaneously. 

"There isn't anything that taps into the wisdom of crowds and allows users to quantitatively assess a show. Right now I can watch YouTube videos or read blogs to see if an artist puts on a good live show," said Micah Smurthwaite, founder of ShowScoop. "That's a lot of work if I am trying to make a festival schedule, or if I'm trying to decide wether to see the opening act. Once enough reviews get posted, it will be easy to lookup an artist profile and instantly know if the artist is a good live show or not."

The ShowScoop mobile app provides the following unique features:

  • The app allows users to rate bands on a scale of 1 to 5 across categories like stage presence and sound quality.
  • Users can upload concert photos, apply filters to the images and post to their ShowScoop and Instagram accounts.
  • Asymmetrical following allows users to follow friends, artists or influential tastemakers to keep up with up-and-coming acts.
  • Users can like, comment on and share their reviews on social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

When a user searches for an artist profile the result is a listing of reviews and the bands overall average score. Also available on an artist's profile page are user-uploaded photos and upcoming tour dates. By incorporating asymmetrical following into the app, it becomes a social network where users can follow their friends to see what show they've attended.

ShowScoop launched their beta web presence in August 2012, and has over 2 million events in their database. The iPhone application is available for free download here.

ShowScoop is an online concert-going community based in San Diego, Calif. that allows users to keep track of and review concerts, artists and festivals they have attended, as well as create a music network to see their friends' reviews. For fans, ShowScoop provides a platform for fans to capture their concert experience and share it with their friends. For artists, ShowScoop is a place to promote their tour and connect with fans. ShowScoop provides value to all constituencies in the concert industry: artists, venues, ticket distributors and principally the consumer.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
