Keep tabs on activities at the Hollywood Bowl for Android

by Caitlin M. Foyt

If you live in Los Angeles, you know that no other experience is like being at the Hollywood Bowl in the summertime. The venue's own app for Android allows you to keep up on everything related to the Hollywood Bowl.

The first thing you'll notice upon launch of the app is its very colorful, scrolling day-by-day calendar. Each date is marked so you can see who will be performing within the coming weeks. If you see something of interest, just click on any day to read a description and learn the time the event will begin. Then, you can either buy the ticket or add the concert to a favorites list in order to receive reminders and announcements.

The Hollywood Bowl application also explains how to get to the venue from wherever you are, and where all accommodations are once you arrive: bathrooms, concession stands, picnic areas and even your seats.

The app has it's own social networking element, too. One section of the app is reserved as a fan photo gallery to which users can browse pictures from other users and submit their own photos.

The app runs smoothly and loads quickly, so you won't have to wait very long to find the information you need.

Other than the fact that the app is well-made and informative, I'd have to say that the Hollywood Bowl app's greatest feature is its design. This app is a calendar and a directory, guides that usually come in boring black and white, but this menu glows rainbow. It's actually one of the more creative uses of color I've seen in an application.

Pretty colors aside, this app is also neatly labeled and organized, so most users won't have any trouble finding their way around.

With so many tours coming to the Bowl this summer, this is exactly the app you need to stay in the loop and get the most out of your experience.
