Getting a ticket for a major event can be a gruesome task and often people spend hours just to get hold of a ticket for their favourite event. Especially in the western countries, live events have a big fan following and therefore on several occasions immediately after the sale of tickets for the particular event begins, they are immediately sold out. This leaves several of the fans wanting to get a ticket and despite their best efforts, they have to wait till the next event and even then there is no guarantee that they will get the tickets.

In spite of this, at the time of the actual events several seats in the events remain vacant and even though there are thousands who would have loved to occupy those seats, these remain vacant. It can be due to last minute exigency or any other emergency because of which those with the tickets to these seats are unable to make it to the event. They may not even get the time to cancel their tickets or the organisers may simply not allow cancellation. In such instances, these people lose their money, the seats remain unoccupied and several people who wanted to attend the event do not get a ticket.
In such circumstances, several ticket owners either sell their tickets through secondary websites or touts. These touts or websites generally pay them less than the actual ticket value while sell them to others at a much higher price. The act is therefore not just illegal but also immoral. Twickets is an amazing application that allows completely circumventing these secondary websites or touts and brings ticket owners and other prospective buyers on the same platform.

The application does not allow selling tickets at a price higher than the actual cost of the ticket. Tickets can either be sold at the same price at which they were bought or at a lower price but cannot be sold at a price higher than that. There are also people who give away tickets for free therefore those people who cannot afford to buy a ticket can look at Twickets as an option.
Twickets was developed by Richard Davies in 2011 after a chance encounter with a person who offered his ticket for a concert for free on Twitter. Since then Twickets is gaining in popularity and has been downloaded more than 250,000 times across Europe. The application is currently available for Android and iOS phones. However, if someone does not want to access the app on a smartphone and would rather like to do it on a Mac computer, there is process that allows them to access Twickets from Mac.
This requires downloading and installing an Android emulator on their Mac PC. The best emulator that can be found online is Bluestacks. Once Bluestacks is installed on the computer, the users simply need to find and download the APK file for Twickets and install it. The application can now easily be accessed through Bluestacks and on the Macintosh powered computer instead of an expensive smartphone.
