Useful Creativity releases Street Scene 09 – Feature Rich Event Guide

3854402376_666b086a77 Useful Creativity today announced Street Scene 09, the first in a line of premium event apps. Street Scene 09 is an iPhone guide for Street Scene 2009 in San Diego, CA on August 28th and 29th, 2009. This new guide includes all the info on the event and artists, a schedule, an interactive event map, specialized parking tools, trolley maps, a custom Twitter client, community photo wall, and a push notification system that is used in a completely new way.

Street Scene 09 is the first in a line of premium event apps from Useful Creativity. This is an iPhone guide for Street Scene 2009 in San Diego, CA on August 28th and 29th, 2009. We created this app with the end user in mind the whole time, we wanted to give the event goer something that is useful before, during and after the show and we wanted to do this in a simple, beautiful, easy to use way.
We created Street Scene 09 to be the best way to interact with the event. With schedules changing at a moments notice concert goers need to know what the changes are. We built a live updating schedule to solve this, we can push out a change within seconds and then follow up with a notification so that the info is sure to be seen. We built in a Twitter client so that Street Scene fans can communicate and even win tickets from the official @street_scene Twitter account.
We hand picked parking lots and gave the tools to find them, you can even mark where you parked!  One of the most original parts of the app though is the use of push notifications. Our app allows us to communicate directly with the iPhone user wherever they are. We use this to send important info about the event, schedule changes, info on how to get free tickets, parking tips, and most importantly to inform a fan when their favorite artist is going on stage. We also have a cool update planned for after the event!
Useful Creativity was founded on the idea of making practical apps with style. We take a very design centric, focused and simple approach to our apps. We came up with the concept and design for the Street Scene app and reached out to Clever Coding in Springville, UT for the development work. We will be working with Clever Coding in the future to continue to produce apps that are genuinely useful and a true pleasure to own.
Right now we are running a promotion for the app. Download before the event (August 28th) and you get it for free! Here is a list and description of the key features in the app:
This page has all the info for anything related to Street Scene. From general guidelines to what to bring, the info page has it all.
Want to know more about the bands at Street Scene? Check out the Lineup page to see pictures, check the wikipedia, and listen to and download tunes from your favorite bands. Be sure to click on the picture to see a full size shot of each band. Also, don’t forget to add alerts (upper right) for the bands you want to see so you get a push notification when they go on stage (you can also do this from the Schedule page).
Built for ultra convenience while you are at the festival this is a constantly updating schedule so that you always have the most current info on when your favorite bands are playing. Touch the star to mark the artist to receive a push notification when they go on stage (you can also do this from the Lineup page).
Event Map:
This is an interactive map! See who is playing on each stage while you are at Street Scene. Want to see who is coming up? Just tap the stage and the map moves over to reveal the next two bands on that stage.
Want to know how to get to Street Scene? Whether you take the trolley or drive we have you covered!
For the trolley, we’ve given you the schedule and map and even marked the stops to get off at.
If you are driving, just find a parking lot in the list and touch the "take me here" button to find the lot on a Google map, then touch "Route" to get directions directly to that lot.
Mark/Find My Car:
When you are at a concert the last thing you want to think about when you are leaving is where you parked your car. With the "Find My Car" feature all you have to do is touch "mark my car" to record your vehicle’s location then just touch find my car to see exactly where you parked it.
Custom Twitter client finds Street Scene related tweets and pulls them into one convenient thread! All official tweets (@street_scene) are colored orange. You can also send a tweet from the app and the official hashtag #SS09 is automatically added so your tweet is seen by other fans!
