Where can I get the TutuTix scanner app for my smartphone?
If you have an iPhone, iTouch or Android phone, our free iOS scanner app can be downloaded from the Apple App or Google Play Store. Watch our video to learn how to download and use our app:
Here are some helpful scanning tips:
- Pre-load the ticket data by hitting the SETTINGS button at the bottom of the app, then selecting your events. Your events will show up there two weeks in advance of the first event date.
- Make sure the devices are fully charged prior to scanning.
- Prior to scanning, double Tap the “home” button on your iOS device to see which other apps are running, and close all of them. This will preserve battery life.
- Choose a location that is well lit to scan tickets; this will prevent you from having to use the flash on the device.
- Consider having a table set up to lay the tickets on for scanning (like they do in the airports). This will be a bit quicker.
- Have at least one back up device.

We include free tickets as a part of our recital fee. How does your system handle this?

Each code is unique and may only be used once. Each code is good up to a maximum number of seats that you specify and can optionally be valid only for specific performances.
Can you limit the number of tickets each family can purchase?
Yes. Using the same code functionality as above, we will generate unique codes for each family that must be used in order to purchase tickets. The buyer will have to enter the code online before the ticket purchase process can be completed. Each code is unique and may only be used once. Each code is good up to a maximum number of seats that you specify and can optionally be valid only for specific performances.
