Superb, no gimmicky bells and whistles
I now have NPR and AP as my go-to news apps. Both are no frills, with focus on simple layouts for serious reading. Both have a crucial component that other news apps don't have...they both load all articles fully cached for offline reading; you don't even have to load each specific article, just the category. You have to click on each category to do this and all contained articles in the category fully load for offline...takes about a minute to load several categories when connected to wifi. Though as someone else mentioned occasionally it gives me an alert saying I have a slow connection when in fact I don't...I think it's a bug that needs fixing. Almost forgot to mention that when connected the radio stations and audio articles load fast and play back with excellent sound.
UPDATE - works great
(I'll leave my original post after this update.)
The app is working great right now. My station is back on the list and starts streaming immediately. I'll make my station a favorite and will see if it continues to work.
The app works much better than just streaming on Safari.
Previous review: I've used this app for many years without a problem. Recently, though, my local station is frozen when I open it. I have to open another station to get the stream going, then click back to my local station. I've installed and installed and hasn't helped. Not sure what to do.
It's awesome! Just one suggestion
Like the title says, I think the app is great and gets me all of the news I need. The only suggestion I would make though is this: when I go to a program and want to listen to all of the stories for the day, I click add all to playlist, then have to delete the ones for the previous day. I wish there would be a select option, where I quickly tap the stories I want to listen to, click done, then I don't have to delete anything I've already listened to. It would be much easier than going into each individual story to add it to my playlist.
