Let's face it, these days not everyone has the time -- or desire to sit down in front of the TV and catch up on all the latest news. National Public Radio, or NPR if you prefer, has recently updated the Android version of its services, which allows you to listen and read news more, catered to your interests on the go. Some great changes took place within the app to make it easier than ever to take in the information you prefer most. They've updated the UI, added a new audio player and improved the whole user experience and now you can:

  • Read, listen, or create a playlist of your favorite NPR stories and share with friends.
  • Hear live streams from hundreds of NPR stations: search by location (GPS)
    or zip code / call letters
  • Listen to programs like Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Talk of the
    Nation, Fresh Air, and Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me More

The updated version is available now in the Android Market. If you frequent listening to NPR or have tried the app in the past and weren't impressed -- try the new improved version. Download can be found after the break for you all.
