ASCAP Launches Redesigned Mobile Access For All Devices

New York, May 31, 2012 - ASCAP has announced the launch of its redesigned and enhanced mobile app, allowing music creators, publishers, and music users access to ASCAP’s tools on any mobile device. The free app is now available in the iTunes App Store (for iPhone, iPod and iPad), Google Play store (for Android smartphones), and the mobile web at for Windows phones, Blackberrys, and all other mobile devices. ASCAP’s app allows users to stay current with their Member Access account and the latest news no matter where they are.

As the first Performing Rights Organization to create a mobile app, ASCAP continues to innovate and move forward with its mobile strategy by adding a number of new enhancements and features to its redesigned app. The sleek, interface allows users to see and download their royalty statements, update their contact information within the app itself, and get the latest industry news through an interactive photo slider. The new mobile experience improves member catalog and ASCAP repertory searches, showing detailed information and the ability to contact publishers. It also allows designated users - such as managers, accounts, or successors - to log in through their own mobile devices.

ASCAP EVP of Membership Randy Grimmett said: “Our goal in redesigning our mobile app was to give ASCAP members access to their information in a more streamlined, convenient and efficient manner. ASCAP’s nearly 450,000 songwriter, composer and publisher members will now be able to get more details concerning their catalog and royalties on any mobile device at any time, enhancing their experience as an ASCAP member by keeping them connected to their member information when and where they need it.”
