America: Public Radio's Dash into the Mobile World

Posted by PrabhasPokharel on Aug 17, 2009

As we explore the role of mobile media for the Mobile Media Toolkit project, we are delighted at the coverage on National Public Radio's mobile section on its "Inside NPR" blog. NPR, a public radio conglomerate in the United States, has made some forays into the mobile world, mostly with its applications on smartphones.

First, it released an API that let users develop applications that could access NPR recordings going back thirteen years. Then, it released a very-polished looking iPhone application, and also plans to develop an application for the Symbian platform.  NPR has also blogged about the details of the process of creating the iPhone application that should be helpful to other media producers doing the same.
