I want to love it, but it has design flaws. For example: I'll be listening to the app while driving via bluetooth (I drive a Ford), and I'll park when I arrive and exit the car. When I come back into the car and turn it on, the app should pick up where I left off, but instead it restarts from the beginning and I have to scrub with my finger to figure out where I was. It's not practical, and other apps have figured this out. Secondly, I don't know how to put a station on my favorites.

This app feels like it hasn't been updated in ages. Two thirds of the time, it doesn't work with Bluetooth. It wouldn't be an issue if the other NPR app weren't also bad. I just want a way to listen to a news show from beginning to end on my speaker while doing the dishes, and NPR apparently can't provide that

This app breaks like it's its job. I've probably had to uninstall and reinstall it [only thing that's fixed it] when the app stops play sound. I've had to do that dozens of times over the last four years. Now the uninstall/reinstall isn't even working. What happened? It's been months since I've had this thing break on me, but here we go again, I guess. Every time this happens, the NPR One app is still running, but I don't like the format of that app nearly as much for the news programs.
