Download The New WBUR iPhone App
We know listening to WBUR is important to you, no matter where you are—in your car or kitchen, on your laptop, tablet or phone. That’s why WBUR has completely redesigned our iPhone app, now available for free here or from the App Store.
“We listened to user feedback and reviewed data about how best to improve our old iPhone app and created an entirely new version,” said John Davidow, executive editor, wbur.org who oversees all digital projects. “This newly engineered app puts WBUR at your fingertips with a design that enhances your listening experience. It also makes it easy to quickly get the latest news headlines and share stories with friends.”
WBUR’s investment in this app demonstrates the station’s commitment to digital distribution of its content as more listeners use online streaming and on-demand podcasts to consume WBUR and NPR’s stories and programs. The app’s audio player has been updated to improve listening to live streams, with greater consistency and stability. The new WBUR app uses the most reliable stream delivery format for iOS today.
Given its live and on demand listening capabilities, the new WBUR app is the most convenient way to stream WBUR on any of your iOS devices.
“WBUR has one foot firmly rooted in the present values of public radio, and the other in the future of digital media,” said WBUR General Manager Charlie Kravetz. “As we face this radically transforming landscape, WBUR remains committed to our digital audience on the web, on phones and tablets, and in connected cars.”
