PRX (the Public Radio Exchange) has selected mobile application provider jācapps as its recommended partner to develop mobile apps for public radio stations. PRX has developed apps for some of the country's largest and most prestigious public radio stations and is now transitioning to focus its mobile strategy on original and custom apps linked to PRX's core distribution service while recommending that its current clients shift to jācapps.

jācapps will not only continue to provide the functionality, quality, and service that PRX has become known for, but will also offer additional optional features to take advantage of the expanding capabilities of the mobile platform to deliver interactive media experiences. Among these new features are capabilities for users to share audio, video and photos back to the station, as well as integration of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.

jācapps currently provides mobile applications for nearly 40 public radio stations nationwide, and those current and future station clients will benefit from a newsfeed feature created by PRX enabling the delivery of high quality news content.

"jācapps intends to use this partnership as a springboard to grow our presence in the public radio sphere," said jācapps COO Bob Kernen, "We think this is an opportunity to bring new ideas and products to the many outstanding organizations and stations in public radio."

"We're impressed with jacapps' platform and professionalism, and enthusiastically recommend that stations outsourcing native app development work with Bob and his team," said Jake Shapiro, CEO of PRX.
