Just in time for Fall tour, Phish fan Marc Pechaitis has updated and renovated the perfect touring companion, iTour. This app, debuted by Pechaitis a few years back, provides all necessary information you need while on the road and on tour. Using the iPhone’s location technology, iTour not only gets you to the venue safely, it helps locate any services in the direct vicinity such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations, liquor stores and more. Beyond location services, iTour also integrates access to setlists, seating charts, tickets, twitter, local music, and videos for each show in the run—all with an easy to use interface.
iTour costs just $.99—WTF, its just a buck!—and works on both iPhones and Androids. It works on devices running iOS6+, and is optimized for devices running iOS7.
