We have just received word that our iPhone / iPod Touch Applications are now available in 32 new countries after a new roll out of the iTunes App Store! Each of our apps are currently being worked on and will receive some massive new upgrades soon! The upgrades to expect are:
-New Retina Display Modification
-Updated User Interface
-In App Purchases (You’ll be able to buy each song right from the apps!)
-Refined Search for Artists / Genres / Labels
In addition to the updates, we will be releasing genre specific apps towards the end of the year which should see our Mobile App Network grow towards 10-15 unique mobile applications! Each of these apps will feature the Symphonic Mobile Ad Network which is available to all record labels and artists to advertise their material on over 100,000 iPhones. Delivery of music to the apps will continue to be done via the Content Portal!
