Lincoln Center announced the launch on July 13 of its first mobile app, designed to help concertgoers navigate the performing arts center’s various offerings. The free iPhone app, designed by IDEO and developed by Pivotal Labs, allows users to access a comprehensive, interactive calendar of events; purchase tickets; filter events by performance genres; explore Lincoln Center with an interactive map that includes box offices, restrooms, parking, and subways; and explore area restaurants, with the option to make reservations straight from the app. The new app, available at the Apple store, is part of Lincoln Center’s increased integration of technology as a way to improve the visitor experience, following a major overhaul of its campus completed in 2010, during its 50th-anniversary year.
