After launching a useful Hollywood Bowl mobile app this summer, the LA Phil is at it again. With the season at Walt Disney Concert Hall in full swing, the organization has now brought patrons another mobile tool. Their free "LA Phil," which is available on Blackberries, Androids and iPhones, includes concert schedules, program notes, options to buy tickets, performer biographies, composer histories, photos and more a video gallery with interviews, rehearsal footage and performer profiles. But our favorite is the interactive orchestra map where you can click on a section, percussion for example, and see performer bios. The Phil's first app was "¡Bravo Gustavo!" which lets you "conduct" the orchestra.
