Feature #2: Push notification

Recently we talked about the unique promolink as one of the most important features of TimeSquare, the app store for festival, venue and theatre apps. Another feature which absolutely can’t be missed in an app is the push notification: a message that pops up in the homescreen of your smartphone. Handy in case of emergency or just for fun!

 

Recently we talked about the unique promolink as one of the most important features of TimeSquare, the app store for festival, venue and theatre apps. Another feature which absolutely can’t be missed in an app is the push notification.

 

Push notification?

Yeah, you know, a message that pops up in the homescreen of your smartphone. When clicking on a push notification in TimeSquare it opens the app on a page that you prefer. This could be your homepage, a specific news item, artist or info page. Your users didn’t request for any information but there it is!

 

 

In case of emergency and fun

As a festival you can send push messages to your festival visitors using the TimeSquare CMS. A must in case of last minute changes in your programme or dangerous weather situations. But of course you can also use it for fun stuff, like revealing a secret afterparty or a surprise act.

Festivals who use their app in TimeSquare all year round also send out push notifications when they announce a new batch of artists or when pre-sale starts.

 

General push promoting all festivals

Also TimeSquare regularly sends out push messages promoting all festivals, see the push below for an example!
