Bexterjohn's Review of Npr

Reviewed on 9/9/18 1:11 PM

When listening to NPR the app freezes frequently when I try to switch from one station broadcast to a different station. It will not respond to any “ tap”. I have to delete app, reinstall app, then reselect my 4 different radio stations. Sometimes 4-5 times a day.

Fixes needed

Disappointed NPR addict's Review of Npr

Reviewed on 9/9/18 10:18 AM

Weekend Edition needs to go in the featured programs section, replacing morning edition on Sat & Sun instead of being buried with other programs. Also why did you take away the ability to create a play list? Now if I stop listening to a show like morning edition and later want to return to it, I have to restart from the beginning rather that just go to my playlist and pickup where I left off. And there’s a problem with Google maps that causes NPR app to shut off whenever Maps gives directions ( not a problem for Waze or other maps services). Overall this version seems to trade off having app buttons just for looks for a number of functionalities that worked well and are now missing.

What gives NPR?

It just doesn’t work. Most of the time it just sits there with the spinning wheel of death. When it does work, I can’t even find the shows I want to listen to. Any NPR app that doesn’t simply let me listen to yesterday’s full Morning Edition with a single click is a failure. Oh, and did I mention, it doesn’t work? Sustaining member of my local station and huge fan overall.

Not ready for prime time!

Once again NPR has broken something that didn’t need to be fixed. The new app doesn’t have a playlist feature anymore (now promised for “later this fall.). You can no longer share individual segments. The hourly news update is often late, sometimes by a few minutes but sometimes by hours. I don’t understand why NPR, which relies on our financial support, can’t leave well enough alone rather than repeatedly frustrating loyal listeners.

The Old App was better

While you still remain my favorite source for National news; this new app is not as easy to navigate as the old.

No More Playlists - Deserves a Zero Star Rating

I did not use the app to listen to live broadcast. I used the playlist feature to create a list of stories I wanted to hear in the order I wanted to hear them. I used the playlist version of the app every day. Without a user-defined playlist feature the app is useless. I would have given it zero stars if Apple allowed it.

Liked last version better

This latest update takes away the ability to create a playlist or share stories with friends. It looks like they found a way to listen to less NPR and get my news elsewhere. Too bad as I have been an avid listener member for many years. Latest update- it crashes frequently, skips parts of stories or skips stories entirely. All problems that I did not have with old app. Please bring it back.

Terrible - bring back the old app

New app is terrible. What happened to playlist feature. With no playlist feature and no sleep timer option, there is no way to listen for a set period of time to the stories of interest.

I miss the ability to make playlists because I like to take out politics stories. and the distinction between stories you can play versus read are gone. :( Given the pretty overwhelming feedback from app users about the desire for a playlist function, Im really surprised that the npr has not even addressed it any of these updates or comments. I thought npr cared. :(

Missing playlist feature

I like the layout of the new app but it is missing my favorite feature which is to create a playlist of the different shows you want to listen to.
