Ministry of Sound launches new mobile apps on iPhone and Windows 7 Phone
Developed in partnership with Mobile Interactive Group From November Ministry of Sound will be the first major music brand in the world to enable music lovers to purchase club tickets and provide delivery of club tickets to their mobiles via an App, in partnership with Trinity Mobile.
Downloadable for free over the air and online via iTunes and Zune Marketplace, the App will enable fans across the world to regularly keep up to date with the latest club and tour dates, radio shows and album releases at the touch of a button – all at a time and location that is convenient to them and all available to share on Facebook, Twitter and email.
The iPhone App has been created with global integrated mobile and digital communications agency Mobile Interactive Group (MIG) and the Windows Phone 7 App with Bitmix, to create a user friendly and accessible product, which is fully integrated to Ministry of Sound’s live feeds and social networks, and Trinity Mobile who provide the amazing mobile ticketing technology. Whether it be the latest interviews from Saturday Sessions artists or free streaming of a DJ mix, the App keeps users posted with the latest content from Ministry of Sound online and brings you up to speed with acts such as Joris Voorn, Mark Knight, Laidback Luke, Sebastian Leger and more on the move.
With events selling out week in, week out the safe and secure booking option allows users to prepay for an unlimited amount of tickets ensuring entry on both Friday and Saturday nights. Friday sees the weekly residency The Gallery, bringing the best in contemporary and classic trance whilst Saturday nights, see the clubs in-house Saturday Sessions present weekly heavyweight guests ranging from the best in house to techno.
Big clubs aren’t everybody’s thing so the Radio section of the App is perfect for intimate listening with guest mixes from some of the biggest artists around. With 45 shows each week, each individually tailored to a wide range of genres, users are able to listen and buy their favourite tracks being played. Users can also browse and buy albums, compilations and singles from the immense collection of music brought out by Ministry of Sound Recordings.
