Boston Symphony launches iPhone app

Posted on: July 13, 2010

The Boston Symphony Orchestra has released “BSO Media Center,” its first iTunes application for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users. The app, created by MobiLaurus, will allow users to access the BSO, Boston Pops, and Tanglewood program notes, season schedules, tickets, and digital music; users may also listen to podcasts, view selected concerts via WebTV episodes, and view the interactive Classical Companion feature. Users can also stream live broadcasts of the Sunday-afternoon Tanglewood concerts by accessing WAMC/Northeast Public Radio’s broadcast stream link. Features to be added soon include a “push” notification, allowing the app to notify users when important updates have been made available, such as artist and schedule changes, news, and exclusive offers.
