Gigbeat tracks your device's music and shows you nearby concerts of your favorite artists
We have to recognize that this app is a great idea. It tracks the music stored on your device in order to find your favorite artist and then show you their tours. This way you can see when they're playing close to your city not to miss a concert. It will even notify you breaking news and any change on your favorite artists tours. If you don't have any music on your device, because you prefer to listen to it from the cloud, there's no problem: Gigbeat supports SongKick and Last.fm accounts, what means that it will sync your playlist and bookmarks from these resources. The only flaw is that if you don't have an account on these resources and you're using other cloud music services, Gigbeat will do little. In order to fully enjoy this app we recommend you to create an account on Songkick.com. Besides sync music you will be able to purcharse concert tickets from there.
Gigbeat's layout is quite simple: set in a black background and four pink tabs: artist, events, location and Mygigs. There's a search bar to find tour of any artist. Its simplicity makes it easy to get the hang of it in a few seconds. However, it would be good if they improved the layout and the amount of customization options.
Despite of that Gigbeat is a great idea that works pretty well (bear in mind that its database is constantly increasing). Developers: great job. Reccomendable.
GigBeat scans your device's music library, shows you when your favorite artists are on tour and where they will be. Don't have any music stored on your device? That's not a problem, GigBeat offers support for Songkick, Last.fm and Rdio accounts so users can login and sync their artists from these services!
GigBeat will also remind you when a concert you've starred is coming up, or notify you when it finds new tour dates in your area for artists you are tracking.
GigBeat is currently fully supported on Android phones running version 2.1 or higher and is compatible with Honeycomb tablets, but a more polished version for tablets is coming very soon.

Force closes a lot
Awesome, helped me keep track of my bands until I couldn't find any artists anymore. I thought my tastes were too obscure, until I tried the same search for "Rihanna" and "Kanye West." Still, no artists found. Now I know with certainty that it isn't me. P

Crashes every time I launch. Bummer.
It was great when I first got it. However, now I can't search locations, or new bands. I thought it was just the metal genre I liked, so to be sure I searched 'Olly Murs'. It said "no artists found". So I know its broke, which is a shame because I liked t
