NPR launches new ‘NPR One’ mobile app for curating public radio news
With most of the world turning to mobile devices to listen to music and other audio content, NPR has rolled out a new “NPR One” app today.
It’s not directly location based, but I’m certain that would have to be an option given that the most important news we want is often about where we are, where we are from or where we are going.
I have heard a number of app promoters talking about news and talk as being one of the areas that you can customize on mobile phone radio apps, but I haven’t seen anything like this. NPR has always been a leader in innovation, although perhaps not as well recognized outside of the USA.
I think what got me hooked on the potential is the statement that you won’t (unless of course you want to?) hear the same story twice. I spend a lot of time on my car listening to podcasts and eBooks. If I could have Scoop.it, news stories, opinion pieces, articles and talk curatable on my audio channel device in the same way as I am doing here. If I could have the latest thinking and articles delivered and ratable to fine tune my listening and study just as I do with music on Spotify, I’m in.
Where do I start?
