Buffering issues I'm sitting still with 99% WiFi signal, speedtest clocks my down speed at 22.5 /s. So why the constant buffering?
The only problem I have with it is that I can't find a way to fast forward within a story. I can only skip ahead to the next story. But sometimes the podcast I'm listening to will jump back to the beginning. So, I have to listen to the whole thing over again or not finish what I was listening to. Other than that, it's a great app, and I enjoy using it.
Slow on audio playback Stories and hourly news updates take as much as 3-5 minutes to load. Several times I've given up and switched to another app only to have the story I wanted suddenly start playing unexpectedly.
Nice UI and features - and now it works well! I love NPR and the content provided by this app! For several years of using this app on many devices and android versions, it failed to reliably transition playlist items, skipped tracks and started new tracks in the middle or near the end. They fixed it!
Nice - wish that we could use the app to listen to old NPR programs Only had about 3 buffering hiccups in about an hour of listening - it corrected itself quickly so I'm not sweating it. I do wish that we could use the app to listen to old recordings of NPR's programs.
NPR addiction This will get my fix. If i can't listen to npr i'd lose my mind.
We are happy to announce we have a listening widget. Finally!
The player and playlist experiences have been streamlined. We've hopefully fixed some of the playlist issues around listening to entire programs and cleaned up some other pesky bugs.
We've also added sponsorship to our story pages. You can learn more about the different kinds of support NPR needs to maintain itself - including corporate sponsors - here: http://www.npr.org/about/support/
