NPR takes their Android app open source

NPR announced on their blog last week:

In the spirit of the Android operating system, we’ve decided to make the code for NPR’s app public. We believe this matches perfectly with NPR's public service mission. Public media implies our audiences have a stake in our product, and open source projects are a means to better connect to our stakeholders.

They also reported that they have 100k unique users each month. Incase you're interested, here is the video they made about it (cute):

About Nate Hoffelder (11579 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
