NPR News version 2.0 for Android features a new user interface, a re-done player, and live streams of full programs. Users can read, listen, or create playlists of their favorite stories on NPR and easily share them with friends and family. I think the ability to listen LIVE is important and is the most welcomed feature of this version. NPR listens to its users (ironic sounding, I know) and claims many of these new features are a result of user feedback. Below is the description from the Android Market.
