We're happy to announce NPR News for Android 2.0 is live in the Android Market.
The new homescreen for the NPR News Android app.
Last summer, we submitted designs to the open source community to discuss how to best move forward with the app. Listening to feedback from our users, we've added favorite stations, more programs with live streams, and an overhauled player. A retooled interface brings more universal navigation, slicker interactions, and revamped graphics.
The overhaul took longer than we expected to get off the ground. But now it's here, we think you'll like it.
For those of you more technically inclined, we are still working on getting the source back into the repositories of the original code site. Some complicating factors have temporarily prevented us from doing so. But be assured the code will be available in the near future and the project will remain open source.
Tell us what you think. Feedback from the people who use the app is the catalyst for moving us forward. Find us on Twitter @nprandroid or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
