It seems like practically every show on National Public Radio has its own iPhone app, not to mention the excellent NPR app for the iPad that'll link you to all this excellent content. But if you're particularly addicted to Boston public radio, check out the new app for the local NPR outlet, WBUR. You can listen in to the live broadcast stream, of course. But you can also read news headlines and get a program schedule. There's a nice little "assignments" feature where the 'BUR folk ask for public feedback on stories they're presently working. Want to contribute? Just use your iPhone to ping them back. And of course, this being a public radio operation, there's an icon you can tap if you'd like to make a donation.
Find the free WBUR app at the iTunes Store. And click here for a vast selection of other public radio apps.
