One of the new apps in the Windows and Windows Phone Stores that is a real bright spot is the NPR One app. National Public Radio, or NPR, released the app last week for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 to bring you news and information from your local NPR station as well as news and information from the wide range of NPR shows to your devices, completely free. With smooth navigation and powerful search functionality, the NPR One app is a must have for those who listen avidly to National Public Radio.
The release of NPR One last week covered both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 to the closest thing that the platforms today have to Universal Apps. Functionally they are identical with only modifications for the UIs coming into play.
