Attention NPR Management


The latest update is not working correctly! When the news shows up in the banner, it does not redirect you to the news story! It used to work just fine without any issues. Now, instead of redirecting you to the news story, it just opens up the app.

NPR should FIX this! Please! It used to work. What happened?!

It works great!

I just listen to the radio. My local radio station has their own app but it often doesn't work, but I have never had that problem with this one. You can also read stories.

Fairly unbiased

A fairly unbiased news app. As with the radio, you can tell they are pretty liberal, but do pretty well at trying to be fair and tell both sides, as well as the truth or at least as much truth as the media tells.
