Going to the ball game is wickedly expensive, which is probably why aftermarket ticket services are flourishing. But they're not exactly intuitive: you have to deal with shipping or meeting the seller in person, which is often a huge barrier if you're strapped for time. Enter Gametime, an app previously limited to iOS, which tries to combine great deals on last-minute ticket sales with a friendly, mobile-focused interface.

Here's the gist: sports venues have unsold tickets to a game, which the Gametime app features with significant discounts, "up to 80% off." You buy the tickets through the Gametime app, and immediately after paying you've got a scannable ticket on your phone.

Everyone loves live events, be it concerts, sporting events, plays, or some other thing that I can't think of. As people, we love to watch other people do things. Sometimes we even like to watch other people while they watch other people. We're weird.

Anyway, if live events are your thing, SeatGeek just released an app that's going to make life a lot easier. If you're not familiar with SeatGeek and the service it provides, here's the gist: it crawls the web to find tickets to events that you want to go to.

Each package offers its own set of perks, with each one building off the last. For example, the General Admission package will get you in the door, access to the pool party, and an all-you-can-eat plate at the BBQ, but not much else.

It's that time of year again - time for the annual Apps World in Europe (there's also an American event, but that's not until February 2013). And, just like last year, we've a couple of tickets to give away. Why? Because we're awesome and love to give away free stuff. That's why.

This giveaway is for the event only. You are responsible for your own transportation, lodging, and any other associated expenses.

As predicted by Nostradamus, the "buy concert/event tickets from your mobile device" revolution has been underway for sometime now. But how can I buy tickets without a Live Nation app?! Has been the question on the minds of event-going revolutionaries for many months; it seems time of prophecy is upon us - the Live Nation app is now available in the Play Store.

Props to Live Nation for featuring Rush in their Store listing.

If you spend an unhealthy amount of time looking for event tickets, then you've probably been to Ticketmaster a time or ten. And if you've been to Ticketmaster, then you know just how many events are covered under its umbrella. 

However, if you're not sitting at your computer when you hear about an event or the mood strikes you to buy tickets of some kind, you were pretty much out of the loop until you made your way to a PC.

Regal Cinemas, the largest cinema circuit in the US, recently got its own official Android App. The app brings a ton of easy functionality to your Android-powered device, allowing users to look up individual movies, read plot synopses, watch trailers, and order tickets with a credit card or Regal Crown Club number. The app also helps users find theaters and show times, and includes a handy click-to-call feature, as well as the ability to get directions using Google Maps.

Say you have some extra tickets to next week's A Flock of Seagulls concert that you want to unload, but you don't particularly want to stand outside of the gate four hours early, calling out "Need tickets?". Starting today, your Android phone can save you the time and humiliation. StubHub, the world's largest ticketing marketplace, has released an app into the Android Market.

Bought by eBay in 2007, StubHub is an online venue for buying and selling second-hand tickets.

Google's upcoming I/O conference generated quite a bit of commotion earlier this month when all of the tickets offered to the public sold out within 59 minutes in a messy mash-F5-to-get-through-the-crashing-servers rampage. In fact, it got so ridiculous that at first Android Police ended up with no tickets of our own either (don't worry though, I will still be there to provide coverage).

Considering most of the public attention at the conference will be concentrated around Android, it is pretty incredible just how popular it became since last year, when tickets were available for 50 days after going on sale.
