Daily listener! I love npr. Listen throughout the day but Star Talk at night with Neil De grasse is my favorite. So many great hosts. "Wait, wait, don't tell me!" Is hysterical but you always end up learning something new. Thank you Npr! From Tampa, Betty xo
Too unreliable I have been enjoying the local and national news coverage as well as select shows from NPR. It keeps me company on my daily commute as opposed to mainstream radio who plays top 40 hits on repeat. However, as addressed in recent app updates, the playback issues on Android nougat are disappointing. It makes the app unreliable. When im taking a shower, playback just stalls. When im driving, the audio just stops. I have to manually pause and play the app to remedy this bug. Please fix this!!!
Great content the content is great, but I'm having issues with the app. Update 09/20/16: the explore tab is only showing "Up Next" and "Listen Later". It used to let me explore other shows. Furthermore, I keep getting a message saying something like " unfortunately, NPR One has stopped." even though the app is working and keeps playing the story.
Great app. Love the content available (lots of great podcasts, not just NPR) and recommendations are good. They should give up on tap to listen because it is never convenient (i.e. in the car, on bike). Just play the article and I will skip track if I don't like it.
Interruptive, poor streaming - DANGEROUS Love NPR but hate this app. Tons of interruptions, seems to stop inexplicably between segments. Interrupts to ask for pledges. Got to be a less interruptive way to ask for support. Streaming capabilities seem to lack tech savvy; stream stops FAR more often than Sptfy. Same signal, Sptfy seems to have figured out how to cache the stream to minimize interruptions in the car. I wanted to use this in the car for drive time. Found myself constantly distracted by having to hit play again. Bad for my health safety
OMG I love this app! I live in Canada where our own national broadcaster, the CBC, has become almost inconsequential in terms of a meaningful national dialogue. So I am very grateful to have NPR One. I love the in-depth political coverage and programs like On the Media, Planet Money, Freakonomics, The Takeaway and More Perfect. I tune in three or four times a day, and always at night, when I set the handy NPR sleep timer and slip happily into the arms of Morpheus. Thanks NPR One you've become my new best friend :)
