The Boston Symphony Orchestra has released “BSO Media Center,” its first iTunes application for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users. The app www.bso.org/mediacenterapp, 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.
