Great App But A Little Buggy

I love listening to NPR throughout my day and this app allows me to do so anytime, anywhere.

There are some bugs however that need to be fixed in order for me to give this app 5 stars. I am unable to stop the streaming once it has started as the stop button in the app and the pause button from the locked screen does not work. I have to either force restart my phone or turn the data off from the app itself. Please fix this issue and the app will be golden!

Much more than 'news'

It's an excellent app for listening to NPR shows on demand. With every release it keeps getting better - yet there remain a few minor bugs in managing the playlist.

Great news source app

Tired of news apps paying more attention to reality TV wannabe stories as to real news. Thank you NPR for focusing on news domestically & around the world.
