'Flipping' For NPR
Originally published on Wed May 16, 2012 11:12 am
At NPR, we've always taken great pride in those "driveway moments" that listeners tell us about. You know, those occasions when you sit in your driveway with the car running for a few minutes, just so you can finish listening to the story or interview that captured your attention.
With NPR and local station streams available on virtually every mobile and tablet platform these days, those "driveway moments" can happen just about anywhere.
And today, there's another opportunity to explore NPR. We have teamed up with social news magazine Flipboard to make NPR available in its iPad and iPhone apps. Flipboard says it plans to be available on Android devices as well in the coming months.
On Flipboard, you can now get NPR's latest News, Business, Arts & Life and Music news and features, along with the remarkably intimate interviews from Terry Gross and Fresh Air. You can listen while you continue to 'flip' and read. To ensure NPR is always easily accessible in your Flipboard experience, simply tap the '+Add' button within the NPR sections. Then, every time you open the app, the latest content from NPR will be there.
NPR is part of the launch of Flipboard's new in-app audio player. Flipboard now includes content from Public Radio International (producers of programs such as This American Life and To The Point) and music sharing service Soundcloud.
Our partnership with Flipboard represents a commitment to be the leader in news and cultural coverage that touches the lives of Americans, no matter how they tune in. With that goal in mind, you can expect to see and hear programming from NPR and member stations continue to be available where and when it's convenient for you.
To get started, download NPR in Flipboard and let us know what you think.
