TiKiTi is an app developed by young creative lads who were tired of surfing different websites or calling people to find out what’s happening around town and queuing for tickets at concert venues, they would too often end up misplacing or not getting.
Under the Ignition Group LLC, Alvin Kato, one of the managing partners who likes to describe himself as “a smart phone enthusiast” and lives abroad, originally dreamed of developing this application after struggling to keep up to date with the city’s social calendar whenever on short visits to town. “It is this challenge that led me to the innovation that is TiKiTi. “With this free app, we intend to feature all that is to do in Kampala, not only ticketed events but also free entry events, club nights, concerts, movies, arts, fashion and sports” says Kato.
This application works in-sync with event and sports organisers, bars, movie cinemas and clubs across town to make sure they are always up to date with the content to their clients. It involves hangout reviews and ratings. The app developers collaborate with event organisers to feature concerts under this ticketing program.The app developers collaborate with event organisers to feature concerts under this ticketing program.
