At long last, National Public Radio's Android app is ready and can be downloaded from the Android Market. The app's launch comes in conjunction with a refresh of NPR's mobile site, m.npr.org.
"We've seen a nearly ten-fold increase in our mobile traffic since the launch of our iPhone app earlier this year, Kinsey Wilson, senior vice president and general manager, NPR Digital Media, said in a news release. "With the redesign of our mobile web site and the launch of the Android app we’re now able to bring that superior experience to a much wider audience."
The NPR app has access to more than 600 NPR stations and hundreds of on-demand streams. Live station streaming is expected to come in the spring. [NPR]
