About this app

A View From My Seat is a community driven photo sharing app for sports, concert and theatre event-goers.

The concept is simple. When you're at an event, share a photo, your comments and a rating for your seat. Next time you're thinking of getting tickets to an event, use this app to look around the venue and find great seats. Don't end up with an obstructed view. Find the best place to watch a show or game, see the mascot or simply stay cool on a hot day.

This app grows and gets better as you share your photos. This app is a simple way for us, as fans, to help each other have great experiences.

BTW, This app is ad-free, and alway will be.

This app is a great compliment to any ticket site including StubHub, SeatGeek and TicketMaster. No matter who you use to buy tickets, use A View From My Seat to know what you're getting.

The app has helped me visualize different seating options for concerts, ballgames, events over the past couple of years. It's a significant improvement over ticket sites' basic seating charts, and much better than those sites' photos (or simulations) of empty venues. Seeing a venue with actual people and concert/game lighting can't be matched. And it's also easy to be a contributing member of the community with a pretty user-friendly/easy interface and flow: when it comes to posting my own concert/game photos, I especially like the ability to take a photo, and post it later (next day, e.g.). That way, I can concentrate on the event and the people I'm with, and use my phone as little as possible the day of. All around, this is a great app/service/community!

I really love this idea. Being able to get a perspective of what someone might see from their seats really helped to choose my tickets more wisely and not have to spend as much cash on a cheaper seat that had just as good if not better view of the stage. Can be great to figure out how much an upgrade is worth between rows or sections, especially when choosing between closer seats far to one side, vs seats farther back but more center stage.

I go to Broadway shows often. This app is simple yet WONDERFUL in helping me to find inexpensive seating but in better locations. I only wish more people knew of it/posted their photos from their seats so that there'd be more images from various theatres and seats. (If there are ads, I've never noticed them.) I do wish their were drop down menus for the sections of the theatres as it would make posting all the more faster.

Thank you so much for your review! Theaters have been growing slowly but steadily. Hopefully this will keep going to make it a bit better for everyone. I'll see if we can do something about auto-filling the section name. This seems like a particularly good idea for theaters.
