Great App, Terrible Aesthetics 4/5
The app is really great. Provides solid news articles and is pretty user-friendly.
NPR News 4/5
By D. Hill
This is the NPR application I remember from the past that served me all the content I wanted whether it be daily news stories from many subjects, features of interesting topics or observations of the unique realities of our daily lives. While over the past few years NPR has had several applications that where limited or didn't work properly. This version of NPR News is neither limited and it works properly. It is also easy to browse for articles as well as seeking out audio to listen to. Both stories and audio can be saved to read or listen to later. I recommend this as the best NPR application for people to download as you get everything which makes National Public Radio great to read and listen to.
App Crashes 3/5
Easy to use, organization is tidy, options are well thought out. However, I've had to delete and reinstall the app a few times because the streaming audio won't load.
Impartial News 5/5
By FL Terry
I enjoy reading impartial news stories and not the Fake News coming out of the Trump WH.
Does what it does and let's me review what I heard on the radio.

NPR Great 4/5
This is the best app! Articles are smart and concise! 10/10 Only problem I could find--syntax errors sometimes make it hard to read.
Love this NPR App! 5/5
By Debbie Hale
I love this NPR app, NPR is my major source of news and I don't know what I'd do without it. Especially now! There has to be someplace to hear the truth and shake off the idiocy of Fox News!
Love this app 5/5
I listen to my local NPR station (WAMU) in the mornings and this app keeps me updated throughout the day.
Even though it's gov't funded!
Stream keeps dropping 3/5
By No auto stories
I don't have a radio in my apartment, so I rely on apps or my local website to hear my local station. Recently the stream has been dropping out after 5 minutes or so and i have to close and reopen the app. Having similar issues with my local websites stream. Not a great way to get ready in the morning...
Makes me feel like I'm home 5/5
Living abroad can be isolating at times. The NPR app makes me feel like I'm back in the states. Love the news, require the humor, admire the storytellers
My Go To App 5/5
By Michael R Payne
Whenever I need to know the significant news of the day I go first to the NPR app. It's clear, precise and accurate. What more could I ask for? It's my go to app for news
By M Lorden
Great app. I use it often.
Much love for all forms of access to NPR 5/5
Great app, just one more way to access journalism and journalists that I trust. Nowadays independent journalism conducted ethically is worth its weight in gold, and such journalists who engage in high journalistic ethical standards are heroes. Thank you NPR.
Great app 5/5
Good relevant content, easy to use app
One of the best 5/5
Best of the rest.
Great content, but freezes after reading article 3/5
By .The Man.
It's very frustrating to use this app. I can read one article, but then if I go back to all news the app freezes and all I can do is force close it.
Love it 5/5
Great app. Well organized and educational.
Leftist Propaganda At Its Finest 5/5
By Bubbles Rainbow-Ranch
NPR is widely-recognized as the Leftist equivalent of Fox News, presenting an extremely biased version of reality. If you interested in understanding the parochial viewpoint of privileged, wealthy, white Leftist who live in the Boston- NYC-DC Acela corridor, this is the app to listen to. Five stars!
Great show 5/5
Everything's interesting and educating in an exciting way
Great app! 5/5
Love listening to NPR on phone.
Love NPR. Who doesn't? 5/5
The app is standard to high quality, but the news reporting, superb.
By hotonthe music
The content is overall good but the app keeps crashing and my whole phone stops working for a few minutes. It's annoying. I also hate that you took my favorite shows to the Npr one app. I don't have phone space for two apps from the same company so now I use the podcast app instead. Which has led me to some good non-Npr related news shows, so...
Works best on newer phones 4/5
NPR app works great on my 5S iPhone. Only problem occurs when my phone goes to sleep and I go to a different recording, it will sometimes crash and I'll have to reload. Other than that, I use the app all the time.
Pretty Darn Good 5/5
By Jimmy Riot
It's not perfect but I use it every day and night so it must be good enough. The NPR One app is a pain. This one's much better. Thanks for moving Wait Wait and Politics back over here.
Great content. 5/5
No complaints. Highly recommend.
The best news 5/5
By Ron in Lawrenceville
NPR has the best news..... ever. The app is a natural winner.
Always there, always pertinent 5/5
By Barb Hastings
Since our area does not have a dedicated NPR radio frequency, I use this app daily. A great way to stay informed.
The best broadcast in the USA 5/5
Interesting, intelligent and up to date. A world of information in segments that are bite size. The BBC has more depth. But in the age of a trump one must be grateful for honest journalism and be willing to pay for it.
No joke, great app
Thank you NPR for high quality content with well researched facts and figures. Appreciate all you do holding all sides of a debate accountable and fact checking the spin. Too much spinning makes me nauseous, and NPR is the remedy when all you want is a straight answer. Cheers!
Love npr, but am having trouble with the app 4/5
I love NPR, I listen to it all the time. 5*
I like this app much better than NPR ONE, but I do have problems with it. The app doesn't necessarily crash, but the broadcast does randomly stop playing and seems to be loading. Sometimes it picks up again in a few moments, but most of the time I have to close and reopen the app. Tried reinstalling. Tried multiple wifi signals. Doesn't matter. 3*
Excellent app, love NPR 5/5
By Civcrafter player
Wish more articles listed were available in audio; but better than most other news sources.
Love the content, hate the app. 2/5
NPR is a great source for breaking news, but this app freezes constantly at random times.
Sometimes, it's frozen when the app first opens. Sometimes, it freezes after you try to refresh. Sometimes, it crashes for no reason.
I usually have to close and reopen in three or four times before it's responsive only to have it freeze while scrolling headlines and forcing me to close it again.
It's unfortunate, but there it is.
Terrific all around 5/5
By Paul 44208
Fantastic reporting in a simple, intuitive, and useful format. Highly recommend.
Great to stay up with the news! 5/5
Love the shows, content and format.
By Laser ten
This app is amazing.
Anti Trump 24/7 1/5
I don't particularly like Trump, but their anti-trump obvious bias makes me vomit.
Trusted News Source 5/5
By Catfish Bo
I love NPR's new app. Easy to navigate. NPR is my trusted news source at my fingertips.
Npr bb 5/5
News thanks u
Great app 5/5
Straightforward local, state, national and world news. Visually comprehensive. Keeps me informed up to date.
Great way to get news 5/5
Great way to get news and listen to NPR nationally
Notifications should link 3/5
Notifications should link to actual articles, not simply the app. Either that, or include a section that is just alerts. Frustrating.
NPR news quality has lost its way 1/5
By Genius user
We used to love NPR radio and podcasts but post election they have slowly drifted ever more anti Trump and Russia "did it" reporting. We scanned the top stories recently and 7 of the 9 top stories on the first page were all negative coverage that every major network rehashes daily...we miss the broad international coverage and science news that NPR once had all over the place I feel that now it's just a sensationalist loud shouting all negative clearly biased typical news outlet....so sad but it's a deleted app soon
Get All Your Trump-Hate Here! 1/5
Moderately navigable interface with nothing to set itself apart, content-wise, from any of the other knee-jerk liberal "news" sources. But hey, yeah! Turn on notifications so you can have the anti-Trump garbage spewed directly to your Lock Screen! That the only notifications NPR chooses to elevate to that level are anti-Trump is the kicker for me. I know where to go to find an overly-biased slant; I don't need this app for that.
Thank you 5/5
It is so refreshing to have an accurate and even handed source of news.
Objective and Trusted 5/5
This is my news of choice. No right or left wing crazy. Just news with objectivity.
