ScoreBig.com Launches iPhone App
Los Angeles-based ScoreBig.com, the online, last-minute event ticketing service which helps users score highly discounted tickets to sports, concerts, and theater events--and at the same time, helping venue operators to sell unsold tickets--has launched a new iPhone and iPod touch application. ScoreBig.com said its new, free app, ScoreBig Daily, will allow users to get seats at live events in their cities. The new app allows users to make an offer on what price they'd like to pay for an event, receiving an acceptance or reject immediately--using a pick-your-own-price model which us similar to Priceline. ScoreBig said its new app will provide tickets initially in San Francisco and Los Angeles, with plans to roll out to New York and other cities soon. ScoreBig is headed by Adam Kanner, and has received venture funding from Bain Capital, U.S. Venture Partners, and a number of angels.
