What's New in Version 3.7.2
Addresses an issue for users who have had trouble loading the app upon update.
Love it... Most of the time.
This app has become indispensable to me. As I move around the country, often to small towns, it's difficult to find good reception for my local NPR station (if there is one)... And even when I find great reception, the local programming is not usually what this city girl is accustomed to. So this app has been my go to solution. I can stream my favorite programs, either live or from my playlist. When I'm homesick, I can live stream my St. Louis or Austin NPR stations (conveniently saved in my favorites)... It's great! My only gripe is that sometimes the app crashes a lot. I'll often go months without a problem. ...but then sometimes I'll suffer through weeks where the app crashes every 5 minutes -- super annoying when I'm driving 14 lonely hours between Texas and Missouri. It has happened both on 4G (with full bars and strong data signal) and on wifi (also with strong signal and good Internet connectivity). So... Not sure what's going on there. But it's a minor inconvenience compared to the hours of talk radio bliss this app has provided me.
FRUSTRATING in the extreme!
Stars are for the idea of this app, not the terrible execution.
I use it every day. I also curse it every day. It randomly just stops streaming my playlist, full wifi connection notwithstanding. At least once a day, I have to quit, close the app and relaunch.
For some reason, they changed the app a few updates back so that the newest show are added to the bottom of the playlist, not the top. Isn't it called NEWS?! Well, if you enjoy Npr, and keep a long playlist, have fun adding new items and try to listen to them first -- complete pain. And to pare down your playlist might take you the next week, since there is no batch delete.
I subscribe to two NPR stations. I get a shoestring budget. But I love NPR and want this app to be more user friendly. I'll pay, really, to have this thing do what I need it to do.
PLEASE go back to adding new shows to the top! Please add batch delete. And PLEASE make it more stable for long playlists!
Until then, I will keep swearing at it.
Pls IMPROVE THE APP!!
I absolutely love NPR and I use this app on a daily basis. Shutting itself off extremely annoying bug had been fixed, thank you!!! I still have a couple of requests. I would really love it if NPR would add different SPEEDS for listening to the pieces on the NPR app, like an option to listen to the pieces 1.5 times and sometimes 2 times faster, just like podcast apps have. It would save listeners so much time and we would be able to listen to so many more pieces every day. Another option requested is the 15 and 30 sec skip forward and backward. It is really hard to use the current option of moving the little ball on the blue line. It causes listeners to waste a lot of time having to listen to parts we don't want to listen again, in case we miss or want to listen again to a specific section. Anyway, thanks for the AMAZING radio station, I only ask that the APP IS IMPROVED!!
