Hallelujah! Encore's app is now available on the iTunes App store.
From missing job alerts, to scanning back through emails for gig details, searching for relevant information can get hectic. We've made sure that the iPhone app holds all the functionality needed for musicians on the go. Being out and about will no longer prevent you from applying to new jobs, as push notifications can immediately alert you to new postings!
Here are a few key features:
Applying for jobs
The default view is the jobs screen, which displays jobs that are relevant to you:
In order to apply, simply click the 'Apply' button at the bottom of a job, and enter both your covering note and quotes. The inverted pyramid icon at the top right of the screen allows you to toggle between either displaying jobs which match your location instrument or displaying all jobs (regardless of their location and instrument).
From the job screen, you can navigate to messages and bookings by selecting one of the three icons at the bottom:
With the Messages feature communicating with clients and other musicians has never been easier! Simply tap the icon at the bottom left of the screen to open your Encore inbox. From here you can keep track of your correspondences while on the go:

Head to the settings page by clicking the cog icon in the top right corner of your phone screen. Here you can alter the app functionality, such as message alerts and push notifications:
You can also update your job alert settings from the app, by selecting this option on the settings homepage. So if you only want to receive jobs within an 80 mile radius of where you live, you can change it in the app and it will update your account instantly:
You can also select which instruments you wish to receive alerts for, as well as the minimum hourly rate you want to be paid.
Adjusting your details on this settings screen will automatically adjust your account settings without you needing to log into the website.
