NPR app is now available

National Public Radio Android app

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,

"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]
