The content might be good, but the interface for NPR One can be a little too basic for comfort.
What's NewWe've made some improvements to how the sleep timer works to make sure playback ceases when you would expect and feel a bit more polished. If you haven't tried it out, find it by tapping the profile icon in the top right. Choose from a chunk of time or until the end of the current story to have the app stop automatically.
Those of you who have experienced heavy data usage will be glad to know we've made several changes that should minimize the amount of background data consumption. We take this issue very seriously. Streaming media takes data - there's no way around that. But we will continue to work to optimize the amount of data consumed by the app.
While we are always fixing minor issues and monitoring any crashes, please feel free to reach out and let us know if you're having issues. Inside the app, there's a feedback button for you to connect directly with us and share your concerns.
App DescriptionNPR One is the new audio app that connects you to a stream of public radio news and stories curated for you.
Great storytelling and rigorous reporting that informs, engages, inspires and surprises—from the ends of the earth to your own city or town—available to you whenever, wherever.
It’s public radio made personal.
*A handcrafted experience.*
NPR One starts with the latest headlines then moves to a flow of stories that matter—stories that increase your understanding, create connections, enrich your life and enliven your mind. All thoughtfully curated by hand, every day.
*You’re in control. Or not.*
Just pop in your ear buds, tap your phone and NPR One starts flowing. But now if you want to pause, skip ahead, rewind or share a story with friends, you can do that too. All from a simple app.
*Personal, not prescriptive.*
Though your stream is personalized to deliver the stories you want, you’ll still hear the top news of the day and stories you had no idea would captivate you. Journey around the globe and into the most interesting corners of your community—serendipity making your world bigger and smaller at the same time.
Even with the breadth of public radio at your fingertips, you won’t lose touch at home. Local news is woven seamlessly into your listening experience. Local stories, locally reported, are delivered daily. Community is everything.
- A personalized stream of NPR and local station news and stories
- Skip, rewind, pause and share
- Search for your favorite shows, stations and podcasts
- International, national, regional and local content
- A simple, intuitive interface
It’s simple. It’s intuitive. It’s there for you. (Wherever ‘there’ is.)
As fast as the world is changing the way it listens to public radio, NPR One is changing the way we deliver it. NPR is here to deliver the public radio experience wherever you are. Whenever you can connect.
Here we go. It’s NPR One.
