Better off just doing a google search 1/5
We traveled to 22 states last year. Thought this app would be great, but it did not accurately tell us the local npr station 75% of the time. Pointless. The developers should be embarrassed!
Great app! 4/5
I travel a lot and This saves me from stopping and trying to find the local station. It works great for me! Thank you!
Wrong station 2/5
By vbbv vb,nnmn,n
It does not give me the closest station. Instead of a station 15 miles away , it gives me one 40 miles away. I don’t know how to tell it to give me a list and let me choose,if it is even able to do that. Apps for amateur radio repeaters use that approach.
Only one lists one station and often not repeaters or translators. For example at my home, the one it lists, I cannot listen to. But I can get five other ones.
Only one station 1/5
By Chief Elder Watchful Hawk
Not useful when traveling. I travel full time and like to listen to load npr news stations. If the nearest npr station is a music station, it’s not at all helpful. It should show all the nearby stations to be more useful.
Only 1 listed. Just deleted the app. 95% useless!
Used to be able to see multiple stations 1/5
When I first got this app, I could choose among multiple stations. Now I see only one, the local FM station which has only classical music. We have an AM station with all the favorite NPR programs. Can’t see that on the finder. It is now worthless when I travel.
Necessary RV travel APP 5/5
Use it all over the country!
Great help to find NPR 5/5
I travel a lot and I always depend on this app to find the GREAT news on NPR.
Needs to work with Apple CarPlay 3/5
By FHS Hot Dog
I listen to NPR whenever I am driving. Recently had the newly-issued Apple CarPlay installed in my car. Found out that the app is not programmed to work with Apple CarPlay. Would really love it if your company would update app features to include Apple Carplay access.
Close to useless when driving... 1/5
By Floridian Taoseño
Spent about 12 hours driving from northern New Mexico to Dallas, and the information received through the app about accessible “nearby” NPR station was next to useless. Not a fan...
Great idea but needs work 4/5
By Roger in Indy
My wife and I travel frequently. The app always shows a station, but 30 to 40 % of the time the station cannot be located on the radio.
Doesn’t show all stations 1/5
I just downloaded this app. It gave me one station out of 3 that are available in my area and no obvious way to look for others. I will not keep this app.
Where did all the alternative station listings go?
Just the one station 2/5
By oh ohcyc
Really not very useful, because it only gives you the very closest station.
Not helpful 1/5
Wish this worked. But it does not
Won’t even open any more.
Take this app down 1/5
Deceptive and Apple should remove this immediately. I’m writing them.
Terrible app! 1/5
Doesn’t work! Sent me TWICE to hip-hop stations (nothing wrong with hip-hop but not what I’m looking for) and only shows one station. The old app I had was MUCH better, IDK why/how this one replaced it. DON’T BOTHER! Save yourself a ton of frustration and just use your radio’s seek/scan function!
I gave it 1 star only because they won’t let me give it 0 stars!
High hopes fall short 2/5
I love NPR frustrated this app doesn’t work better. 70+% of time it doesn’t work at finding a station on our travels and when it does give me a station number it’s not npr.
It’s fast and it’s accurate 5/5
By Hooked on Qrank
And that’s all I need. The discontinued app I used to use took forever. This comes up instantly.
Limited station choices 4/5
Driving across USA/CANADA to Alaska and back to Florida. During our first 19000 miles it was helpful. Need to give more options so as we drive along we can update. Making our trip more enjoyable, thanks
Why only one station? Very incomplete. 2/5
I just put 2,700 on the road for vacation and was continually frustrated with the limits of the app. It only lists ONE station for any and all geographic areas, when I know for a fact many of the areas I was in have two or three stations. Many times it was the NPR classical station presented, but a quick radio scan makes it pretty easy to find a classical station on my own. With so many variations of NPR news stations’ schedules, especially on the weekend, to not list THAT station made the app almost worthless. A good idea with poor execution.
Good start 3/5
By Hot johnnie rock
Needs to cough up more than one suggestion, preferably by showing a map with stations laid so, when traveling, one can anticipate the next likely station.
Doesn’t work. 1/5
By ruthie L 46
Does Central Texas have NO NPR stations?
Not helpful 1/5
This app only provides 1 option and it’s often classical, not news. The old app provided options
Little to none information 2/5
By Lies eel
It only shows ONE station, and no information about it. And it’s not necessarily the best and clear reception.
Disappointed and would suggest to work out the lack of features.
How about you make it “open source “ and let the listeners add information, not unlike WIKIPEDIA?
Never located a station 1/5
Does not work.
I say its terrible because, in the previous version you could see ALL the NPR stations in your area. Not just one.
Go back to listing multiple stations please!
It's Good: by Dp of PMG 3/5
By Parks Media Group
The NPR Station Locator works Good, but sometimes when I tune to the Station reception
Is weak and I keep in mind Terrain and being in motion can reduce good reception.
I drove across country and this was perfect for the trip!
Great app when traveling 4/5
By Ginny P Michigan
Great to be able to find NPR while on long road trips.
Only lists one station 2/5
By hiking don
It would be better if it listed all the stations in the area with reception bars like it used to.
Old version was better. 2/5
By Really Lost in Seattle
In the old version it would list all the stations in the area. Often, one would could look at the list and test options. Now it just lists one.
Ok, but... 4/5
Works quickly, but only shows one station. In a given area, it brings up the closest station. But, if there is a news station in addition to a classical station, you'd never know it. I'd like to see the top 2 or 3 with a word or two on its preferred genre. Thanks!
Not good 1/5
Only shows 1 station. No list of closest stations / signal strength.
Bare minimum 1/5
It shows one station. That's it. No strength indicator. No station description, not even a URL. Those things and other nearby stations are what's called for. Please be at least as informative as googling "NPR stations near me".
Wholly inaccurate location 1/5
I've been waiting for a new NPR station finder, but this app keeps returning an Indiana station while I'm diving through Maryland. I hope they fix this basic location glitch.
Good ap! 5/5
Works great I use it everywhere
