NPR's Music app has been updated with iPad support and introduces live concert streaming. The first show will be an in-app exclusive on March 7 with the Shins, who will perform songs from the anticipated new album Port of Morrow. If you have an Apple TV, you can beam these concerts to your television to enjoy on a large screen from the comfort of your couch.

Additional features include the ability to explore articles, music and videos and listen to exclusive NPR programs such as All Songs Considered and World Cafe. You can also read stories and reviews, stream live music and create playlists for offline listening.

If you're not interested in every article that the NPR Music has to offer, you can enable a feature that recommends stories based on the artists present in your iTunes Library -- filter by what matter's most to you.
