UNM is currently working with NeuLion on developing an Apple product Lobo Listen app that will allow iPad and iPhone users to be able to listen live as well. Until that is developed, UNM athletics recommends the app iSwifter or Photon, which enables flash content on the iPad or iPhone (these are paid apps). We are currently looking into other alternative solutions.
