Feeds the Brain 5/5
Been listening to NPR for years and Love being able to keep up with the latest news without all of the sensationalism...
Way too many commercials 2/5
Every 2 minutes the live stream gets interrupted by a commercial, I've timed it. The story doesn't stop so you loose that part of the news. It's really frustrating.
News when I need it 5/5
I love this app! I can listen to my home station anywhere, which I love when I travel. I also have a station in another time zone that I can listen to when my station is having a fund drive (yes I'm a sustainer!) or playing something I've heard. I can also add shows I missed to my playlist. Thanks!
NPR App 5/5
I really enjoy being able to listen to NPR programming on demand through the app.
Love this app! 5/5
I can't get enough of NPR and this app allows me to access my favorite stations or specific podcasts when I'm not in the car. I love it.
Live radio 5/5
I love the live listening feature. I wish I could listen to shows like morning edition in their entirety though.
Must have! 5/5
I like the fact that I can pick the news to listen!
Great App! 5/5
No issues while listening, great alternative to buying a radio if you don't have one.
One of the better news apps.
One of the best 5/5
By Jackie satellite
One of the best news apps out there.
Awesome news app 5/5
I love this app because it gives me a snap shot of the worlds news without pop up ads or distractions. It is a news source I trust. Thank you!
Quality reporting 4/5
Good coverage. Concise information. However, the app seems a little outdated, buttons are small.
Love NPr 4/5
My only issue with the app is that while using this app with the built-in screen reader in IOS (Voiceover) sometimes when I double tap a headline to open the story the app will open a different story than the one I selected, am sure this is not a problem for sighted users but for those of us that rely on Voiceover to interact with IOS it makes it more difficult to read the stories.
Excellent visually & in content 5/5
By von Alleserleben
I've always trusted NPR the most, when living in the States - not only as a news source but also in providing a critical view on current affairs. Now, living in Germany I'm thrilled having a direct access again. The app is fabulously prepared in terms of layout & quick information bites, while on the go!
NPR app 5/5
I recently switched to this for accessing internet radio. It has not disappointed me. I enjoy having news and radio via the same app. And I like the ability to save as favorites NPR stations from around the country.
By Joe Bftsplk
Much improved. Great content, and doesn't crash like it used to.
Content 👍🏽👍🏽 App Stability 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽 2/5
Of all the numerous apps I have NPR is one of the ones I used the most and the only one that consistently crashes my phone. The content is outstanding but the streaming service works on occasion and the app it self soft reboots my phone. Obviously very disappointing and irking. Not sure how it passed apples software testing.
I want to comment easily 4/5
Works well, easy to find variable stories. But I really want to leave comments while I'm listening without more searching elsewhere. Can you please set this up, maybe a link to the story's post?
NPR: Where Journalism and Arts Peacefully Coexist and Thrive 5/5
Escape the Breaking News red banner of the mainstream media and the panic-inducing delivery of its reporters and experience journalism as it was taught in the era preceding Murrow and Cronkite. The NPR app will ease the suffering induced by Facebook "news" and the fact-challenged individuals who perpetuate their nonsense.
URGENT: Unusable since mid December 1/5
Current version ALWAYS crashes within 5 seconds of starting app. Completely unusable. iPhone 6, iOS 10.2. I emailed technical support twice and have not received a response. I previously relied on this app every day, but it has not worked at all for 3+ weeks now with no response from app support
Love this app! 5/5
I'm surprised there are not many five star reviews. I use this app every day. At the end of the day I can listen to all things considered or morning edition and listen to all of the stories sequentially in my car. It doesn't use any Data to download all of these episodes from the program for that day. By Saturday at 2 o'clock, I listen to Saturday edition as I'm driving. I can listen to each story sequentially. Doesn't get better than that. If I want a change I can listen to this American life, the hidden brain, the moth, or any of their excellent programs.
It's free, and you get to choose what you want to watch versus NPR one which attempts to choose stuff for me. Don't like that. I've never had the app crash. It does occasionally stop when my radar detector goes off but otherwise it has been rock stable.
Addendum: it's 2017 and this is still the best NPR app there is. I don't particularly like NPR one because it's like the Pandora of NPR podcasts. I don't like having podcast chosen for me by an algorithm. This wonderful app allows me to choose the program I want to, select from all available episodes and run them sequentially, and appears to use no cellular data when I listen to it in my car. I have two words: Cades!, And two more words use it! You won't regret it.
Great, easy app 5/5
By Greg from Queens
If you like NPR, this is the app for you! I especially like the audio news update whenever I need to hear what's happening. Thanks!
Great source for news and entertainment 4/5
My favorite news caster 5/5
By NPR Read
Very pleased with NPR as always. Their news casts and articles maintain their 5 stars into the app.
Still my favorite 5/5
By Mike traveling
This is one of my oldest and still most used apps. Streaming my local stations when I cannot get decent terrestrial reception is one of my favorite features and I love designing my own playlist. Like most NPR listeners, I did give in and get the NPR One app, which is nice but if I had to choose, the tradition, stodgy, and ever present NPR classic would win every time for me. Stay golden NPR app.
By Mike scotty
Best news outlet around period
NPR App Convenient 5/5
By Geinormous Wing
I love that I can listen to any story I missed and keep up on current stories developing. And access to past episodes of my favorite shows? Priceless app
More Objective 5/5
Nowadays objectivity, to the degree humanly possible, is really hard to find but NPR is as close as one can come- thank you!
Love it! 5/5
Use it! Support it!
A must 5/5
Radio station and app
Great app! 5/5
I really enjoy it!
Every day twice a day 5/5
By Plumeria 808
Being informed and well read is a democratic citizen's responsibility, especially today. NPR is an essential app in your richly diverse, daily news podcast line up.
Great app 5/5
I love you NPR. Can't wait for all the new features.
Best News Resource 5/5
Fair, balanced, unbiased, non-partisan, fact-based, informative. These adjectives describe what NPR is all about. The journalists at NPR are the most responsible, honorable and ethically-sound team of reporters. I listen daily and am a sustaining member because I believe in what they stand for. And I encourage every one who shares the same beliefs to listen to NPR and donate. Now more than ever, in the "post-truth" era of news and media, we need NPR.
Can't pinch and spread when reading news articles 3/5
By Still entering by hand
This seems to be one of the few news apps where you can't pinch and spread to change the size of the print.
This makes it more difficult to read.
Amazing app! NPR when you need it 5/5
Love this app! Keeps me up to date with the news and allows me to access all content by NPR.
NPR 💛 5/5
Relentless crashing 2/5
By MM Mac
Adore NPR, and KJZZ. App continually crashing. So sad!
Much improved 4/5
By Greg in Portland, OR
I previously wrote a review awhile back about how this app constantly crashed. This app improved quite a bit over the last year or so. I rarely see it crash anymore. Thanks for the improvements!
NPR anywhere 5/5
App has all your favorite programs.
I used to like this app, but. Is it crashes on the startup screen.
Great App 5/5
Listen every day, thank you NPR!
NPR has always been a a quality news source with unbiased reporting. This outlet works with the best people and not only provides great news, but a variety of programs that have created a diverse range of personal "driveway moments" for me. Additionally, the app provides users with access to local NPR stations (not just news) along with the ability to access new NPR stories quickly and efficiently. Great app, great people, great news.
Great app 5/5
Love this app! It lets me listen where and when I want.
Excellent app 5/5
Great short news bulletin and interesting coverage of current affairs.
Very handy daily app 5/5
The NPR app takes the place of the old morning and evening newspaper. I use it several times a day. Easy way to quickly download key stories to read offline later!
Great app 5/5
By Mr. Morrow
Great way to get your news
My Favorite App 5/5
This is the first app I check in the morning and the last app I check before I go to sleep at night. I especially love the access to the NPR TED talks show. Thank you NPR for keeping me so informed and thank you to all the contributors keeping it flying.
Excelente app 4/5
I really enjoy this app Because I can listen the NPR everywhere in the world, South America, Europe, anywhere I go!!!
