John A. LoFrumento, CEO of ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers), announces the launch of ASCAP Mobile, a new app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. 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 to search ASCAP's entire repertory of more than 8.5 million copyrighted musical works, and browse news about ASCAP and the music business. The app is free and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
"The ASCAP Mobile app further reinforces ASCAP’s leadership position in the application of new technologies to better serve the needs of our members," LoFrumento says. "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." ASCAP states that it plans to create future versions of the app for Blackberry and Android.
