One of the best ways to get your news 5/5
By Fernow Dawg
App works for me just fine (though others seem to have some issues). NPR is a fantastic news outlet and this is one of the best ways to view it on the go.
Best news source ever. 5/5
Always been a fan of the unbiased news at NPR and now I can get it all the time. I sound to much like a commercial that's how much I like this app lol apps also easy to use and easy on the eyes.

NPR: The Arsenal of Democracy of our age.
crashes and poor sound quality 1/5
I love being able to time shift All Things Considered, but this app has gotten worse and worse in how it functions. The sounds quality now is terrible and it frequently crashes.
While it is a nice option to be able to pick and choose stories, I would rather be able to download ATC as a podcast and at least have good quality sound and not have to keep restarting the app.
Removing and reinstalling from my iPod touch 4 has not helped.
Please NPR News, fix this app. I love listening to ATC and this app has been one of my most used.
Still the best 5/5
App works. Simple and intuitive just like an app should be.
Leftist nonsense 2/5
By Ski life
So sad to see a another news organization fall to the hopelessness of he left. Please report on facts not ideology.
Great, never stop! 5/5
By buBblE EyEZs
Informative, thoughtful, balanced perspectives and news coverage. Thankful for the amazing work that NPR journalists, and everyone else who makes it work, are doing everyday to keep us informed and thinking about what we're hearing and seeing everyday.
Good App, needs better Interface 4/5
The app is very good. The way the sections are broken down and the front page is ok. But it is no appealing. It feels almost like a college students side project. It has what's need to pass the test but no more than that. I would like to see a more friendly and inviting interface. The web site is far more appealing to browse on a daily basis, and the app is nice to get a the articles quick and move on.
Balanced At It's Best 5/5
By Zen Grey
The best non-partisan news available in the states. Absolutely essential and sadly endangered.
Great news app, one of the best! 5/5
Better than NPR one
Good but restart issues in audio play mode 3/5
I knew problem since the last upgrade… Many times (but not every time) I play one of the audio top stories, my iPhone spontaneously restarts. Grrrr.
Best way to stream NPR, check news 5/5
Great app - it's the best way I've found for easily swapping between a variety of NPR stations - plus quick access to NPR news and etc without using a browser. Great work!
Welcome App 5/5
By Granny Sharon
I missed having NPR when not by my radio. I can listen while doing housework with my phone. Our local stations keep me updated on news and timely events. The reception is excellent! Thanks, NPR!
My go-to 5/5
I tried NPR One but this one is easier to navigate. I like listening to podcasts and live streaming, and being able to set favorite stations makes it a breeze. Great content, good app.
Truth & journalism 5/5
Thank you for providing a beacon of truth and great journalism .
Easy to use and manage 5/5
I love all of the files that are accessible instantly. Unsure where This American Life is on the app though, :(.
Please fix!!! 3/5
Great content, usually I listen to or through the my day but lately it crashes a few seconds after i open it, or when i start to play a podcast it restarts my phone???? Please fix!
NPR Everywhere 5/5
By No Techy
I love being able to listen to NPR stations anywhere any time. And I love being able to pick whichever NPR station I want to whenever I want to. It was so great to have it when I was snowbound and away from home.
Good App 5/5
I enjoy this app.
Great App, info rich 5/5
Compared to those news apps with huge pictures, but limited text info, I much prefer this type of info rich design, which you can quickly scan through headlines.
Love It 😍 5/5
This is the best way to review news!
My daily free m feed 5/5
Its my daily news feed, in the morning and on the drive to work. And to listen to local NPR stations where ever I go. It does have rare glitches in streaming.
Great app 5/5
Love listening live from the app while getting ready, etc.
I use tis nearly every day 4/5
Great way to get NPR major news. I would love to be able to find more programs on the app, however. That would give it five stars.
NPR RULES! 5/5
Awesome source of news and information around the globe. Appreciate the honesty and truth in the reporting.
Great app! 5/5
I love the balance from NPR. Also this app is heavy on text, light on photos. (Photos can be great, but I hate 'news' apps with huge stock photos hiding the lack of any actual information.)
Leftist biased news. Don't get me started on the campaign drives! Why don't all the people who give their money to NPR give it to help the poor or hungry and actually make a difference...oh that's right because then they wouldn't get the widespread praise and credit. If the commentators didn't have such bias in everything they say and if they told the whole story and left their opinions and anecdotes out of conversation, the news they talk about might actually mean something. As it stands everything is twisted and hand picked to fit the agenda.
The app is also very slow on my iPhone 7 plus and crashes multiple times a day. Not to mention the basic design layout and convoluted topic searching. I'm sure the inexperienced and overpaid millennials you have in app development can do better than this.
The best news 5/5
What else can you say? This app gives you easy access to the best news source available!
By The Abiding Dude13
I love NPR and listening on the move but it goes back a minute and replays the show from that point.
How I start every morning 5/5
Absolutely love the NPR app. It's my go-to every morning. Thanks!
I love this App! 5/5
I've switched around looking for different new apps, and the NPR is by far my favorite app. It gives me news that I actually care about.
Wonderful App, makes running more enjoyable! 5/5
I listen to the articles that have audio when I go running and love it. I'd love to be able to listen to Market Place though, please add that program!
Very good. 5/5
Always enjoy NPR, and this gives good access.
Good Place for News 5/5
With all the biased news coverage it's good to have a site that at least tries to be fair.
By MT Blues Lover
This app keeps me on touch with all my favorite NPR stations no matter where I am. Can't live without it!
Works great most of the time 4/5
And the times it doesn't, I know it's there local radio station's fault!
Fair news coverage. Definitely not FAKE NEWS. 5/5
By G in Racine
I enjoy NPR news coverage.
good app 5/5
Easy to use. 4/5
Sometimes podcasts play previous listened rather than current after I exit out of the app, but otherwise it works great.
Easy to use doesn't lose data in background 5/5
The best 5/5
A long long, reliable and sometimes entertaining news source. Some time you shout (a lot) some your not your head and sometimes your laugh. Love NPR. Support local news!
Torn Reviewer 3/5
By NATO Poppins
Its hard to rate this for two reason.
1) The content is great, and NPR is known for reporting the facts. Not sensationalizing a viewpoint. Their goal is to deliver non biased journalism and they deliver on that goal. They are known for the most objective news in the world and that is what we need however...
2) The reason I cannot rate higher than 3 stars is due to the UI. Aesthetically it looks like something from the iPhone 4G era. The app is incredibly boring which will drive away the average onlooker, which is terrible in this era of fake news, false claims of fake news, and media biases. The way top stories are uncategorized is horrendous, and the categorization of topics is a little messy. It also is not enjoyable to navigate. BBC excels in all of these areas which make it a little more likely to be downloaded.
For these reasons I give it 3 stars.
The Best Radio News 5/5
By The Retrogamer
I grew up before Internet, so you had to get your news from the television or radio. NPR was what I grew up on listening to for news, and is still the best source for news today. I love having an app on my phone to be able to listen to it. The app is smooth, and works great. And the price is right: FREE!! No annoying ads or pop-ups like you see in most free apps. I can already tell that I will be using this app a lot. Well done, NPR. Quality as always.
Crashes a lot 2/5
This NPR app was fantastic, worked well. Now, it crashes when I add 21 items to my listening list. Every update ignores this issue.
My first source 5/5
This app is my first source for news from the chaos that is the news media today. I come here for the unbiased facts without a lot of extra noise. Easy to use app and I also really like NPR One radio app!
Solid new app 5/5
Comes from a great non-bias source and always has good stories. Well done NPR!
NPR yes!!!! 5/5
Such a great app to get the daily going ons in the world
Great app 5/5
Love the layout. Use daily.
Good not great 4/5
By SF Boyo
Very solid app, with some definite gaps. Basic functionality is great. But there should be some way to replicate the experience of hearing a full in-context, properly sequenced news broadcast without having to hack it together manually. I go to newscast and listen to the 5 minute summary and then I go select the show, download to playlist and move the stories around into some logical order. Sometimes the download sequences the stories in more or less random order with follow-ups/related far from the lead-in story. It would be great if the app automatically preserved the order from the original show. Also it would be nice if the app allowed you to modify the stories you hear and their order based on your interests (politics, national, business but no sports, entertainment, etc.). Sometimes you only have 10-15 mins getting ready in the morning. You want to get right to the most important stuff without hunting around. BTW I've tried NPR One and really don't like it. It seems like a misguided effort to promote discoverability of new and less popular shows and segments rather than a way to get to your preferred content quickly and easily. Not helpful. Don't fight your users. They know what they want from the network.
App crashes all the time 2/5
By Erica shemerica
I love NPR! I've been using this app for over a year. It's been one of my favorite places to get News, but this app is always crashing. Today it crashed like 20 times, and completely shuts off my IPhone. When this happens, I'm supposed to delete the app, turn off & reboot my phone, and download the app again. This happens too much, so I'm just going to try the NPR1 for a little while, see if it's any better :(
