NPR One is a whole new way to listen to stories, shows, and podcasts from NPR and your local public radio station.

It’s public radio made personal.

*A handcrafted experience.*
NPR One starts with the latest headlines then moves to a flow of stories that matter—stories narratives that increase your understanding, create connections, enrich your life and enliven your mind. All thoughtfully curated by hand, every day.

*Always learning from you.*
Just pop in your ear buds, tap your phone and NPR One starts flowing. And NPR One gets to know you. Skip what you don't want, or tap the lightbulb to say a story is interesting. We'll turn NPR One into your own personal radio station.

Love to listen on the go? Get the most out of NPR One with Apple Watch. Skip, pause, and search at a glance without even touching your phone.

*Personal, not prescriptive.*
Though your stream is personalized to deliver the stories you want, you’ll still hear the top news of the day and the stories you had no idea would captivate you.

*Connected locally.*
Even with the breadth of public radio at your fingertips, you won’t lose touch at home. Local news is woven seamlessly into your listening experience. Local stories, locally reported, are delivered daily. Community is everything.

A personalized stream of NPR and local station news and stories
Skip, rewind, pause and share
Search for your favorite shows, programs and podcasts
International, national, regional and local content
A simple, intuitive interface
Sleep timer with five presets
It’s simple. It’s intuitive. It’s there for you. (Wherever ‘there’ is.)

As fast as the world is changing the way it listens to public radio, NPR One is changing the way we deliver it. NPR is here to deliver the public radio experience wherever you are. Whenever you can connect.

Here we go. It’s NPR One.

Customer Reviews

Pandora It Ain't

This app is still very creaky. Without a way to indicate stories you don't want to hear, it will keep feeding you items that are not of interest. They seem to lack a refined way of determining why you like something. For instance, you might be interested in a story labelled "health" on allergies, but have no interest in the latest on the Zyka virus. But Zyka stories you will get. I have to skip at least 5 stories for every one I like. And now I can no longer skip because of some as yet undiagnosed bug, so the app is basically useless to me at the moment. The up side is that I've uncovered some interesting new podcasts. Verdict still out on this one.

Wanted to like it but don't

I'd been hearing so much about this app from my favorite podcasts. I downloaded it in the hopes that it would help save memory space on my phone by streaming the latest episodes of my podcasts instead of putting them on my phone. But it really doesn't seem to work very well at all. I never have the latest episode of a given podcast in my feed and it's really hard to get to the podcasts I want to listen to, which is the whole reason I downloaded the app. I did discover one new podcast which is awesome and totally made the download worth it, but at this point I'm going to delete npr one and go back to the podcast app.

NPR radio for the modern age

I've had this app a while and it's still one I use a lot. I like how each time I fire up the app it starts with the news summary. Then it goes into other great stories. Forget binge watching, now I'm binge listening! Although I do wish we could toggle off the long podcasts so they're not mixed in.
