What is A View From My Seat?
A View From My Seat is a comprehensive library, made by the fans for the fans, which can be used to research what the view will be before, during or after buying tickets. Have you ever purchased tickets to an event only to be disappointed - either you paid too much for the seat or you got a bad seat altogether, like one with an obstructed view? Everyone spends a lot of time online hunting for a good view for the game, concert, or show. A View From My Seat, through everyone's contributions, makes it easier to find a great view.
The apps may look different now, but the goal is still the same.
In 2010, we had a dilemma while trying to buy a season ticket package for the Philadelphia Phillies. Our only resource to make this pricey purchase was an online stadium map. That gave us the idea - what if everyone shared a picture when they attend an event? Then everyone could benefit from everyone else's experience.
Our goal is to help fans and event-goers be better informed. So, we created A View From My Seat, a crowd-sourced approach for fans to help each other make more informed decisions about the tickets and shows they want to go see.
We love providing a handy resource for you during the ticket purchasing process to find a great view, while there to show off your view, and then, through high fives and comments, letting you know that others appreciate your contribution.
How it works - A little give and take.
Take a little: A View From My Seat is a community of fans that support each other. Use it as a reference when you are purchasing tickets. You'll have a better idea of what your view of the action will actually be and you're likely to be happier with your purchase. Give a "high five" to the person that shared the photo to thank them!
Give a little: When you get to the event, we would all appreciate if you can share a photo of your view, to help other users in the community. You can upload photos during the event from our Android or iPhone app or after the event here.
