Can I share news articles with friends?

Yes, you can. When you are in the News section of the app and are reading a news article, you will see a button near the top of the article called "Share". Tap this button to pick one of the sharing options, which include sending the article via email or posting the article's title and link to your Twitter account or Facebook page.

 

If you pick email and are using a device with an operating system below 3.0, the NPR News app will quit and you will be directed to your email application. If you are using operating system 3.0 or newer, you will stay in the NPR News app and be given the opportunity to send the article via email to a friend.

 

If you pick the Twitter option, you will be told that you must first enter your Twitter username and password in the More section of the NPR News app. If you have already done so, you will be shown a screen with the title of the article. You can click Send or modify the message before sending. The URL (web link) to the article on NPR.ORG will be appended to your message before being sent. However, please remember that only 140 characters can be posted to Twitter in a single message and you will need to leave room for the URL to be appended properly.

 

If you pick the Facebook option, you will be told that you must first enter your Facebook username and password in a screen that will appear (this is the Facebook Connect approval process). If you have already done so, you will be shown a screen with the title of the article. You can click Send or modify the message before sending. The URL (web link) to the article on NPR.ORG will be appended to your message before being sent.
