Nonprofit media company the Public Radio Exchange has named mobile application provider jācapps as its recommended partner to develop mobile apps for public radio stations.
PRX has developed apps for public radio stations and now plans to focus its mobile strategy on original and custom apps linked to PRX’s core distribution service, subsequently recommending that its current clients shift to jācapps.
Jācapps will also offer additional optional features to deliver interactive media experiences. Among these new features are capabilities for users to share audio, video and photos back to the station, as well as integration of social media feeds. The developer currently provides mobile applications for nearly 40 public radio stations nationwide.
