Using Apps to Find Live Music By John Moore for Digital Innovation Gazette

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.
