XRIJF 2012: And now for something completely different....

Jazz Around Town: XRIJF has an app for that . . . and you have the next week's jazz

XRIJF App screenshotThe Xerox Rochester International Jazz Fair has released an app for iPhone users. The XRIJF app is now available free from iTunes. XRIJF iPhoners will find news, information, the schedule, artist information, photos, maps, venue and travel info and links to buy tickets online. There are also options to select favorite artists, share information on Facebook and Twitter or email, and create a personal festival agenda (for which you may use my upcoming pre-festival posts as a guide if you wish). A search tool enables browsing through concerts or artist profiles. It also includes a reminder will alert fans when shows are about to start. Looks like a great improvement over past mobile apps, but I'm sure Android users are feeling left out (that's a screenshot from my iPhone, so I'm not too worried about that...). Perhaps that's still to come?
