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.

What's New in Version 1.6.1

Introducing support for CarPlay. Listen to NPR One in vehicles that have support for CarPlay as part of the in-dash entertainment system, or with CarPlay-enabled aftermarket systems. Once you have connected NPR One to CarPlay you can tap on Catch Up to get started with your National and Local newscast followed by your recommended stories; Or simply tap on Recommendations to scroll through curated listed of stories and podcast episodes just for you.

This update also brings a fix to a bug that would unexpectedly start playing NPR One overnight. Sorry about that! Together with this bug fix, we have also turned off auto-play when you launch the app, so you'll never accidentally blast "This is NPR One!" in a quiet meeting room again... not that we would know anything about that.

NPR One continues to evolve. Please join our Facebook or Google+ communities, or tweet to @NPRone with any feedback. Thanks for listening and for supporting public radio.

Customer Reviews

Loved it... Until recently.

This app was great for the last year that I've had it, until the last month. They apparently made significant changes to the format of the app. I used to be able to swipe left-right to skip a story or go back to one later. I could also follow a specific program, just by tapping the name, then 'follow' while listening to an episode generated by the app. Now it's only Listen (to the current offering) or Search (through a list that appears).

It also used to generate great offerings based on my history; now it does a terrible job of that. And 1/2 the time doesn't play the National Newscast due to "audio issues."

Hate the new format & listening much less often. At this point easier to just subscribe to the podcasts in iTunes.

Loved the app for a whole year.

I have used this app for everything. Grew up on talk radio, npr satisfies my need for current news with out the fire and brimstone from glen beck. My only problem has been going on for the last month. I cant play npr for more than a couple hours a day with out it getting in a mind numbing loop of the intro. It hangs on the local station call letters repeating them to me till I rip the cord from the audio jack and exit the npr app. After this occurs I can't listen to npr for the rest of the day. It simply hangs on the intro even when I have reset the phone. Honestly love the app though. Please npr for my health, fix the app.

Excellent! Delivery!

Wow. I'm very critical of a lot of the streaming content services out there right now for one design feature or another but 👍🏻👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿! I have an hour commute into work each day through spotty service areas. This app does a great job of pre buffering content and next up stories. (I'm looking at you Pandora) Just when I thought I had found my core NPR programming One had turned me onto a couple more shows that I thoroughly enjoy! Very good job with the 'suggested for you' section. Version 1.6 already on the CarPlay train? Bravo! Keep up the good work!
