WRNI Radio

Our first iPhone app was WRNI Radio. WRNI Radio is an app which plays the audio stream supplied by WRNI. WRNI is Rhode Island’s only NPR News Station and is broadcast on 1290 AM around Providence and 102.7 FM throughout Southern Rhode Island. WRNI features local programming such as the weekly “Political Roundtable,” health care and education reports, “Trinity Rep Radio Theater” and “This I Believe” — a series of essays by Rhode Islanders on their core values.

This application was developed in partnership with GLAD WORKS, a marketing agency specializing in graphic design and web development.

This was the first iPhone app available in the iTunes store made specifically for an NPR station.

This is a good example of our philosophy of keeping software simple. Designed to minimize necessary user interaction, this streaming media player immediately starts playing upon launch. One click is all that's needed.
