I really love the app and have found a couple new pod casts thanks to its suggestions. However, every time I try to use it with Android Auto, it freezes at the end of each act and buffered indefinitely. I can only fix it by using my phone to end the program and restart it (which means I have to wait until I can pull over and stop driving).
Great app with great content! Support your local stations! My only complaint is that longer shows tend to end early and start over. Seems to happen most often with statehouse blend Missouri/Kansas. I'm also always listening over Chromecast audio.
Fast and clear podcast audio. Thing that I hope that they change the way the podcast is played. I mean, for example: when I'm listening to Ted Radio Hour, when the player finished playing one episode, it should have played next episode in the Ted series, NOT by playing some other news instead.
Used to work beautifully, now buggy. Podcasts will restart at random points back to the beginning MULTIPLE times while trying to listen. Followed shows don't appear. I like the content which is why I'll currently give it three stars but it's in dire need of some help making it run smoothly again. Update: worked better for a while but back to being buggy. Some shows that start over won't allow you to fast forward to where you were. If I have to pause a show take a call, many times when the app is in background and I bring it back up, NPR One will instead start playing another podcast I've already listened to. Unable to manage followed shows- this is probably something on my end, but it's not obvious how to delete podcasts you are following. Five stars for content, though.
A queue feature would be nice so I can line up stories before a drive or get one ready for after the one I am on. Excellent podcasts and news for driving or leg work. Also I can't find mpr's the current as a station. Way too many bugs, doesn't seem to be getting better.
Love the app, it's a big part of my life. Unfortunately v. 188.8.131.52 stops playing a few seconds after pushing play. My rating is based on how great the interface is and really how nice it is to use when it works and my hope that this bug will be fixed soon.
This release addresses several issues affecting playback, and other miscellaneous bugs. Stories should no longer cutoff early and / or switch to the next story unprompted. Android Auto should properly update on new sessions, and some Chromecast bugs were resolved. Please keep the feedback coming and let us know if the experience has improved for you. Thank you for using NPR One!
