NPR Mobile 1.2 update
Pass Time Software has updated its NPR Mobile app for the iPhone and iPod touch to v1.2. The app provides users with a browsing interface, enabling them to find and listen to radio programs, read summary text, and view any available images. In the newest version, users can expect added access to browsing and listening of all of NPR’s podcasts, and changes to search capabilities that allow finding NPR affiliates using cities, states and zip codes, or GPS in the case of the iPhone.
The update also includes support for the iPhone 2.1 firmware, and various bug fixes relating to searching and bookmarks. Another issue, connected to audio segments not becoming available until after 5PM EST, should be dealt with in the next update. NPR Mobile is a free download from the App Store.
