Any Hour Can Be Your NewsHour: Download Our New iPhone App

Thanks to all of those who waited — and those who nudged, pushed and shoved for us to go mobile. We quietly rolled out a test version of our iPhone app a few weeks ago and more than 70,000 of you have helped kick the tires.

It’s finally official: Download our new iPhone app here.

Here’s a brief — and amusing — primer on what you’ll get:

The app let you watch the PBS NewsHour anywhere, anytime. It provides video, audio and headlines to users over Wifi or 3G connections. The app provides a customizable interface so that users can sort our coverage of politics, the economy, science, art and the world. Read our in-depth analysis, watch analysis from columnists Mark Shields and David Brooks or listen to our podcasts. This app is IOS4 compatible, supports multitasking and works with the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad.

We’re headed for even more platforms soon, but in the meantime try us out on the iPad. If you use the social media magazine app Flipboard, you’ll notice we’re one of their preferred feeds, which of course means we should be one of yours, too.
