Edinburgh Fringe App

Having launched the new Edinburgh Fringe 2016 app this week, we’re delighted to announce that the app has been picked up by Apple for its ‘Hot This Week’ category on the App Store. Built using the powerful cross-platform app development suite Xamarin , the app has been delighting users even before the festival began.


With a fresh new UI design, the app is the ultimate companion for festival goers attending the 50,000+ performances. Features include:

  • Advanced search options to help users navigate the massive show catalogue
  • A personal calendar to build and manage a schedule of performances
  • A ‘Nearby Now’ function to make the most of your time at the festival
  • In app purchasing of tickets.

The app features a brand new technical architecture, solving the complex challenges of integrating the Fringe’s back office software, online user management system and the existing ticketing workflows and protocol.
