Time Out launches Sydney iPhone app

Entertainment title Time Out has launched a free geography-based iPhone app which it claims details more than 5000 things to do in Sydney.

The app has been sponsored by Smirnoff.  

The announcement:

Time Out launch Sydney’s best entertainment app – and it’s FREE!

The Time Out and SMIRNOFF iPhone app features over 5000 things to do in Sydney – events, restaurants, bars, clubs, gigs, films and festivals all mapped and updated every day.

The app is free thanks to our friends at SMIRNOFF and produced in Surry Hills by world-leading app developers TigerSpike.


Location driven: the app uses geo-location to pinpoint your location and show you Time Out recommended activities nearby, complete with event previews.

Sociability: the app lets you invite friends along through Facebook, Twitter or email.

Rating: You can rate all events and venues and share their rating. All ratings are stored and count towards an overall community rating.

Regular updates: event listings and previews are updated on a daily basis so you can access up-to-date information on all the latest thrills and spills in Sydney.

Be inspired: Chose ‘Inspire Me’ and the app will select 10 random upcoming events for you – never be bored again.

The entire Time Out Sydney Bar Guide: all 200+ bars in our annual bar guide, updated, are amongst the 3000 venues included.

Time Out Sydney Food Awards: all winners and runner-up restaurants.

Julian Peterson, Time Out’s Marketing & Online Director said, “The Time Out Sydney app is closely based on the Time Out London app which has over 300,000 users. The Sydney app is free to everyone thanks to our friends at Smirnoff and it is really satisfying that both Time Out apps were written by TigerSpike right here in Sydney.”

“The Time Out app is all any Sydneysider needs to plan their entire social life – restaurants, bars, films, arts and gigs are all accessible and shareable on the move. Time Out’s extensive entertainment listings are definitely one of the most useful things to be placed on an app this year.”
