I love NPR! But the app needs an update or a fix. I would like to fast forward the stories, but can't. Samsung did an update. Since then, my car and Bluetooth earphones forward and pause function doesn't work. If listening to NPR and I put my earphones away, or turn off my car, NPR continues to play on the phone speaker. I have to unlock my phone to pause NPR. Annoying! If I remove my earphones or receive a call, the news story continues and after the call, I have to go back. Galaxy A32 5G

I absolutely love NPR but this app is glitchy. By far the most frustrating glitch occurs when playing a playlist. Each episode in the playlist will play till there's around a minute left, and then skip to the next episode. It happens every time. The only way to hear the remainder of the episode it is to replay it, and fast forward to the portion that was skipped. Not an ideal listening experience.

This app is in dire need of an update... The search function doesn't seem to work... no results, even when searching by call sign... so I can't stream my local station via the app. The news stories work just fine for reading... but the radio streaming just doesn't seem to work anymore, which is what I want to use it for.
