Musicians developing iPhone apps

Kyte launches platform for artists

DENVER -- Kyte, a digital media technology company aggressively targeting the music industry, launched a new platform, called the iPhone Applications Framework, for artists interested in developing iPhone applications.

Interscope artists All American Rejects, Keri Hilson, Lady Gaga, the Pussycat Dolls and Soulja Boy Tell 'Em are the first on board, with new iPhone applications now available for download via Apple's App Store.

The mobile phone video system lets artist quickly upload new content online, and now the iPhone as well with the new service. The platform lets participating artists update their iPhone apps with not only new content submitted through the Kyte service, but also add interactive features like fan chat and rating, Twitter feeds, RSS subscription capabilities and integrate both their iPhone and online applications at once. Artists can also include advertising and links to purchase additional content.
