Love NPR, Hate The App Doesn't display all the articles, doesn't display up to date news/article listing, images sometimes broken, graphics/graphs/tweets don't show up. Kinda lame, mobile NPR website way better. Why not just make an app that loads up the way better mobile site? Needs work.
Mostly like it Love NPR. App is mostly intuitive. Have to shut it down twice every time. I push stop, back out of it, and it starts back up again in a minute. What happened to "Quit" in the drop down menu? 7/21/16 It appears to have updated, and with this update came push notifications. I DO NOT want random push notifications on stories YOU think I might find interesting. I very much appreciate NPR, Very much. But this app just lost a star. I think the double shut down thing has been solved though...
Push notifications You can turn them off in the external application settings not the in-app settings. I can't stand push notifications.
Not able to control new push notifications I was annoyed to abruptly start receiving push notifications from this app without any warning or ability to turn them off or control them within the app. I did disable notifications though he 'Manage Applications' settings, which allowed me to avoid uninstalling the app.
Broken With this update my playlist is cleared whenever I exit the app. Why isn't it saved anymore. Terrible
Bad Update The loss of my playlist is frustrating and I find the push notifications annoying.
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/
