According to NPR, their updated music app now becomes the perfect way for you to watch their Tiny Desk Concerts, read original reporting and commentary, and listen to brand new albums, the 24/7 music channels or NPR’s station stream. A new feature worth nothing about is the ability to filter music by content type such as reading articles, watching videos or listening to programs. You can also filter by genre such as rock, jazz, classical, folk, hip-hop/R&B, world or electronic/dance. The app also lets you build a playlist just by dragging and dropping and then saving the playlist for offline listening later on. The app also works in the background, letting you use other apps as you listen to NPR music. Finally, the app also now has a special feature in the playlist which suggests NPR Music features based on the artists on your iTunes library. To celebrate the release of the updated NPR iPad app, NPR Music will be streaming live the Shins concert on March 7. If you’re a fan of the said band, you should be download the NPR Music app on your iPad now.
