My First Windows Phone 7 App Is Live: NPR Listener


The title pretty much says it all.  My first Windows Phone 7 (WP7) application was approved and is live on the Zune Marketplace.  

It’s called NPR Listener and (surprise) it accesses National Public Radio’s (NPR) web service APIs so that you can stream the audio for the stories that they’ve published.  It’s free so go ahead and download it


If you’re curious about how I built it, I’ve posted the source code.  Click here to download the code.
