The WBUR Listen app for iOS and Android has recently been nominated as a finalist in the 2017 APPY Awards in the Charity/Non Profit category. The APPY Awards were created by MediaPost to celebrate creativity and excellence in app design. WBUR launched the WBUR Listen app in September 2016 to provide our listeners with an excellent audio experience – it features a rock-solid live listening stream along with all your favority podcasts. Users on Apple devices can also pause and rewind live radio. Listeners can also enjoy commercial-free programs and podcasts on demand, including fan favorites like On Point with Tom Ashbrook, Here & Now and Modern Love. The app also provides users with a simplified interface with show icons, making it easy to select and download content for offline listening, as well as keep track of their overall listening history.
Development of the WBUR Listen app was provided by Intrepid in Cambridge, Mass. APPY Award winners will be announced Wednesday, May 17, with an awards ceremony in New York City.
