Composers and publishers will now be able to access their royalty data and other information from their Apple mobile devices. ASCAP announced the launch of its ASCAP Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
“The ASCAP Mobile app further reinforces ASCAP’s leadership position in the application of new technologies to better serve the needs of our members. The free app offers our members and the industry a new way to stay connected with ASCAP while they are on the go, putting a secure connection to Member Access, the entire ASCAP repertory and industry news in the palm of their hands,” said ASCAP CEO John LoFrumento.
The app provides ASCAP’s songwriter, composer and publisher members with 24/7 access to their membership, catalog, performance and royalty information via ASCAP’s secure Member Access online portal. Additionally, the app’s interface allows all users the ability to search ASCAP’s entire repertory of over 8.5 million copyrighted musical works, and browse news about ASCAP and the music business. The app is free and can be downloaded from Apple’s App Store.
Further versions of the ASCAP Mobile app are planned for Blackberry and Android smartphones.
