Updated WBUR iPhone AppThe new WBUR app has a refreshed, streamlined design and simple navigation that allows for quicker access to content.

“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, 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.
