'This American Life' coming to iPad
The iPad app, launched Tuesday, will cost more than the iPhone or Android apps already available ($4.99 versus $2.99 for the smartphones), but comes equipped with more features, including the ability to bookmark favorite shows, download three episodes at a time for off-line listening and select individual stories within an episode with a button.
Other features included:
- Each new episode is automatically added to the app
- Access to the entire archive of episodes from the show
- Audio and video extras
- Link to weekly live stream
