NPR Music:Review 4 out of 5
Engage, explore, and discover new music of all genres with the NPR music application. Whether you’re looking for rock, pop, folk, jazz and blues, classical, or hip hop/R&B, you’ll find it all and loads more all in one small app. It’s impossible to hate NPR’s music application for iPhone and iPod touch.
This music directory application by NPR is jam packed full of music, music news, music videos, and music blogs. You can find music playlists sorted by artist or radio playlists all programmed by people at the quality you would expect from NPR. You can read music news and reviews, listen to interviews with your favourite bands and artist, watch live concerts or listen to album streams before they’re even released to the public. This is an ultimate guide to music and a must have app on everyones iPhone and iPod touch.
NPR’s music database is massive, literally massive. You could spend days browsing all of the content in the app and new content is added every single day. You can find your favourite radio stations inside the app, or alternatively if you prefer to make your own playlist like myself, this is also possible. What I really like about this app by NPR is the fact that music, news, streams, live concerts, interviews, and everything else is all organised by genre. This is an excellent way for me to discover new music in the genre of my choice.
If, like myself, you are a bit of a music news junkie, this app is perfect for you! I found it amazingly easy to browse the app to find interviews, news, touring information, and videos of more than 5000 artists. The app design is very appealing, you are greeted by a homescreen that gives you several initial categories to chose from: Radio, The latest, Genre, Programs, Concerts, and Blogs. Each of these categories give you thumbnail previews of editor’s picks and popular music to check out. At the bottom of the homepage you will find a directory menu offering you several ways to filter your music search. Discover great music, news, and blogs with the NPR Music app as your guide to new music! I give this app 4 out of 5 stars!
