Customer Reviews

Breaking news notifications broken

The new Breaking News notification feature in the iPhone app version 3.8.0 is broken. If I try to enable breaking notifications, the app says it can't be done because the notifications are disabled in the device Notification Center, but the NPR app isn't listed in the Notification center nor did the app prompt to allow push notifications when I ran it.

Basically the push notification feature is broken in the app. I tried removing and reinstalling the app as well as restarting my iPhone. Neither fixed the problem. Please fix this.

Objective & Thorough

I trust this app above all others because it provides me with plenty of accurate, on-site information. In so doing, it informs me thoroughly and gives me the necessary tools to form my own opinion.

Great update

The minor issues with stories miss-loading are much less apparent now, and I like the newer larger play button too. Great job npr!
