Happy, needs to be updated more quickly I like how quickly audio loads. A 45 minute show loads up fully in less than a minute. However, programs aren't updated on a consistent timeframe. For example, I like to listen to morning edition on the train into work around 10:30am EST, but sometimes it hasn't been updated even that late into the morning commute. Sometimes Fresh Air won't update for several days. It would be nice to see some consistency regarding show upload times.
Good ...could be better. Love NPR and it's content. Am a local station supporter. How come Android app's personal playlist can't be saved for future listen? I always have to scroll through and re-add stories I had previously added to the play list because they aren't saved once I shut down the app! Please add this critical function.Quit shoving NPR ONE app down our throats. Update this good app please!
NPR is awesome! Please make it so I can view multimedia portions of articles in app. For example, in "The First Presidential Debate In 100 Words (And 6 Videos)" there are no videos! I have never been able to watch a video over app. Often pictures too, but not always. Across multiple phones. Right now droid z. Then back to 5 stars it is. Thanks!
Provides a nice live stream from NPR stations and a sampling of NPR news items. Pretty good about privacy, only asking for access to location. The only problem I've had with this app is that it crashes any time I try to read the caption on a picture. This behavior has been the same across four different Android devices and even more Android revisions.
Cannot disable notifications Good access to npr news. Took off two stars because it seems there is no way to disable push notifications. I do not want to be nagged by a news app. Took off an additional star because push notifications have to be manually dismissed even if you click them to read the article. Amateur beta level app design at this stage.
Generally Good By far much better than the highly advertised NPR One app. Easy to access shows like morning addition, hourly updates, and all things considered. I have had issues with it crashing frequently. Recently shows have not been made available for hours after they normally would have been. For example morning addition wasn't available until sometime around noon today; I used to be able to listen to it as I got ready in the morning. Lastly, I wish it could download broadcasts for offline listening.
