One of the ugliest, but most functional, news apps on the Android Market has to be that of NPR News. While the app does provide a great deal of news and live streaming radio, it's completely hideous. Luckily though, this is all about change. We've landed some screenshots of a new refresh coming to the NPR for Android app. The update, which should be hitting the Android Market by the end of the month, looks to give NPR for Android a more polished look, matching the NPR for iPhone app.
At this point, not much is known about what the app update will bring, but it looks as if it will certainly bring a search functionality and give Android users the ability to view images within news stories. Just those two things alone will be a very nice addition! I know I can't wait to see it.
