A very nice review of our iPhone app

Mar 31, 2010

Steve Myers, managing editor of Poynter Online, has some very nice things to say about our iPhone app - including an explanation of how it supplements the podcast and online streaming. Some quotes:

"I bought the app without hesitation because I made a quick calculation: The convenience of being able to stream any episode, without having to sync my iPhone with my computer, was worth a few bucks."

"The podcast never changed how I experienced 'This American Life' stories. The app, however, encourages me to browse the content by reading the blog, browsing the categories of stories, flipping through the "extras" (which includes early stories by Glass and longtime contributor David Sedaris) or watching clips of the TV show that aired on Showtime."
