Awesome new features in version 2.0 of our iPhone app!
We’ve just released an updated version of our iPhone app, which includes three features that lots of listeners asked for. First, you can save one show at a time for offline listening when you don’t have an internet connection. Second, you can easily keep track of which shows you’ve already heard. And third, for all you folks with the newest version of the iOS software, you can close the app and keep listening in the background while you do other stuff on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Pretty slick, eh?
Here’s Ira Glass talking in more detail about these features:
If you already have the app, it’s a free update. If you don’t have the app, you can download now for $3 and get on-demand access to the entire archive of This American Life.
For all you Android users, stay tuned. The Android app is coming soon.
