About the app
The Twickets app allows users to sell spare tickets to gigs or key events. Unlike other ticket websites where prices spiral out of control, Twickets sets limits, ensuring that tickets can only be sold for their original price or less. To browse the tickets available for sale, all you need to do is sign in with your Facebook or Twitter account. Twickets accepts payment via credit/debit card or via PayPal. As a buyer, Twickets also makes sure that your rights are protected: if you don’t receive the ticket/tickets you purchased, you will be given a full refund. Twickets is the ideal app for last minute ticket buyers.

All about Vine
The Vine app allows you to record and loop short videos and share them on your social media accounts. Whilst Vine has been available for a little while, it has only recently become freely available on Android devices, due to the fact that the designers had to iron out a few persistent glitches. As well as letting you film, edit and loop your own videos the Vine app also lets you browse through other people’s creations.
