Most notably, the update adds support for Apple Pay for purchasing tickets from select sellers. This Touch ID-enabled feature is presumably available on iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 as well as on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The update also adds a couple more iOS 8 optimizations in the form of support for the app’s Today widget and support for Handoff. The former lets you access the Notification Center to quickly see nearby events you might be interested in attending, and the latter lets you easily transfer your session between iPad and Mac.
The new version of SeatGeek for iOS also includes the following improvements:
- Find the tickets you want faster by using the new quantity selector when browsing tickets on iPhone.
- New simpler interface when browsing tickets for General Admission events on iPhone.
- New streamlined purchase system for select ticket sellers. Look for the little green card when browsing tickets on iPhone.
- We’ve added an easy way to get free advice on buying tickets to the Super Bowl.
- You can now clear your recent search history.
- Fixed an intermittent crash when buying tickets on iPad.
SeatGeek is available on the App Store for free. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later.
The app was updated with support for iOS 8 in September and support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in November.
