Seeking Your Ideas For WBUR iPhone App


What do you want from a WBUR iPhone app?

We’re excited to announce WBUR is working with PRX — the developer of the Public Radio Player (iTunes link) and PRX.org, based in Cambridge — to create a unique WBUR iPhone app that will do far more than just stream the station — though it will do that, too.

For iPhone users among you — and anyone else interested — we would like your ideas, wish lists and suggestions for what you’d most want in a WBUR app.

  • The latest news from Boston, the nation and the world?
  • Access to archives on demand?
  • A map of member discounts?
  • A Bob Oakes ringtone?

The app will be released in the coming months. In the meantime, share your ideas with us in the comments.

Please follow our community rules when engaging in comment discussion on wbur.org.

    Thanks, everyone, for the tremendous response. We have directly incorporated many of these suggestions into the app. An update here: http://wbur.org/2010/05/17/iphone-app-preview

    Inventing your own apps is a phenomenon. For instance, who knew the Bettners would invent something so addictive. I just read a really interesting article about Newtoy Inc./Words with Friends and the Bettner brothers. Check it, I think you’ll find it interesting.

    what about those who love the station that don’t have an IPhone. IPhone doesn’t even have a majority of the market share. Why blow off the rest of us? :-( pouts!

    I believe half, if not more, of your listeners have android (and other) phones. Please add an app for these listeners as well. Thanks!
