O2 rolls out early-bird ticket app

Fast access to priority bookings

Top three mobile application threats

O2 has been tempting existing and potential customers with the carrot of early access to event bookings for some time. Now it's made getting hold of tickets easier.

Well, for iPhone owners at any rate, though the operator did promise today that Android and WebOS versions are in the pipeline.

O2 Priority

You need to register - enter your O2 number, an email addy and create a password - and, when you've received the activation code and keyed it in, you're ready to buy look up events and concerts, and buy tickets - up to 48 hours before they go on general release, if you're quick enough.

The only snag: purchases are routed through Ticketmaster which has the gall to charge £2.25 "delivery" just to email your tickets that you must print them out yourself. Oh, and there's a £2.31 "fee" to be added on to the price of the ticket too, cheeky monkeys.

You can download O2 Priority from the iTunes store here. ®
