We’ve had a lot of requests from GigaTools users who tour the globe for their automated Gig announcements to happen at the hour of their choice in the actual city of the Gig so we have done exactly that.
You can now choose ‘Location Aware Announcements’ in your GigaTools preferences and your Gigs will be announced on time, relative to the time zone of the Gig itself.
This means that, for example, If an artist has specified their announcements to happen at 20:00 hours and they’re performing in Melbourne, Australia, then the announcement will happen at 20:00 in Melbourne. Likewise if their next Gig is in Berlin, Germany, the announcement will go out at 20:00 Berlin time.
Users no longer have to manually adjust their time zone if they’re on a world tour, GigaTools will do the hard work for you
We’ve just plugged into Mixcloud so you can now automatically list your upcoming Gigs on your Mixcloud profile!

You will then be taken to the Mixcloud site where you can grant permission to the GigaTools Mixcloud App and from then on, Your Mixcloud profile will feature a micro Gigs listing and a link to your GigaTools profile page which we will update daily.
