Northern California (and Beyond), a KQED App For You

October 18th, 2011 → 3:49 pm @

We know, this blog has a string of app release announcements. But don’t you want to know about the new KQED app for iPhone? Of course you do!

KQED serves Northern California, including the Bay Area. This app is going to keep you busy.

  • Listen and watch live and on-demand content from well-known national programs and local shows including Forum, QUEST, The California Report, Check, Please!, Spark, and many more.
  • You can also catch up on KQED’s popular blogs: News Fix, Bay Area Bites, Capital Notes, and more.
  • When you’re ready to interact with the real world, the app has local events listings, with links to maps, websites, and sometimes even ticket purchasing.

If you’re a KQED member, you can enjoy KQED Perks — discounts offered by local businesses — more easily than ever. Scan through a list of discounts, find them on a map, and redeem by launching a virtual member card in the app itself. Just show your device to the business and the discount is yours – no paper card needed! This feature is a result of our integration of member benefits and member validation into the PRX station app platform.

As with all of our station apps, this app makes it easy to support the station. And don’t you think, with all this content and technology goodness, they deserve it?
