Another nice app for iOS, named “American Life iPad” is now available in App Store. This app was released on March 31, 2011 and sells for $4.99. It has made Apple’s Top 300 iPad/iPod applications list. According to the developers of this app:
“This American Life is a hit public radio show and one of the most popular podcasts in the country”.
The iPad app gives you on-demand access to episodes, including the entire archive going back to the program’s launch in 1995. That’s more than 425 hours of stories, plus several exciting features not included in the iPhone app.
Check out the features of this App below:
- Every new episode automatically added to the app
- Listen to the weekly Live Stream
- Staff favorites lists
- Contributor lists make finding episodes from your favorite people easier
- iPod integration: The app will also pull in your podcasts
- Links to buy episodes in iTunes
- Audio/Video extras
- Blog with show news and events
- Mark episodes as Heard and Favorites
- Facebook and Twitter integration
- Lists of This American Life TV episodes, with promos and iTunes download links
This American Life is mostly true stories of everyday people, but it’s also really hard to describe.
Here’s what it’s not:
“It’s not a news show or a talk show or a call-in show. Instead, it contains stories that are like little movies for radio. There are funny moments and emotional moments and moments where the people in the story say interesting, surprising things about it all. It’s a public radio show for people who don’t necessarily like public radio. It’s won all of the major broadcasting awards. It’s produced by Chicago Public Radio and distributed by Public Radio International.”
