Back in the day, finding live music involved observing notices tacked to telephone poles or having someone press a flyer in your hand outside the record shop. Today though, live music finder apps offer the 21st century easier ways to locate a show.
One example is Thrillcall, a live event discovery service that provides show listings and localized live music offers. A Thrillcall app for iOS debuted in February with an Android app following in October. We spoke to Matthew Tomaszewicz, co-founder of Thrillcall, about the company’s development approach and marketing plan.
In creating the Android version of Thrillcall, did you develop in Java or are you using a development platform that lets you tap a single framework to develop for both Android and iOS?
Matthew Tomaszewicz: We used a development platform called Phone Gap. It’s a tricky situation developing a mobile app in a single framework, given a mobile ecosystem where there is a premium put in the iOS world on native development to accentuate user interaction.
