That guy next to you on the train who is relentlessly tapping away at his iPhone could be a workaholic or a tech-savvy solipsist, or he might just be a lover of classical music. The New York Philharmonic said Friday [July 3, 2009] that it is offering a free iPhone application that would allow listeners to keep up with the orchestra even when they’re nowhere near Avery Fisher Hall. The app, which is available for download at iTunes, allows users to look up event information, purchase tickets, listen to music and access podcasts from an iPhone or iPod Touch. It syncs with iTunes, too, and it’s much classier to be caught fiddling around with than Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D.

This is an excellent concept which I wish I can participate in as I love classical music as a young teenager and I am listning to it over 44 years. Ufortunately I live in the Philippines and they do not have this kind of service there or the phone also. To bad on my part lucky on the ones living abroad.

I’m still on the fence about it. I’d like to see more than a revamped website experience.

I’d like to develop an app for some of my favourite orchestras.
