Gets better with each update I'm surprised how adamant and quick the developers are at fixing the bugs that pop up. The newest release is stable for me; thanks, NPR!
Fantastic Being able to add podcasts to a playlist/queue would be nice when wanting to listen to a bunch of short podcasts or when I have a long drive and want to catch up with specific podcasts.
Good idea but, You're better off using a podcast manager app. No more this American life. Why do I now have to swipe over and down to get to suggestions? It's still a bit confusing if using the traditional npr news player and app will sync history, ratings, etc with npr one. Still no resume function. The hourly news often interrupts other programs which is annoying. I would also like a favorite button to see a list of and return to my favorite episodes later.
Bugs Always have to load the app twice before the play button works. Chromecast support is still littered with bugs. Stops playing after one or two stories then repeats the same stories after restarting app.
Great app to play NPR content It allows you to follow programs and listen to them whenever you want.
Fix The application will not open.
