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

Poor design and redundant.

Since they didn't specify a target audience for this app and the fact that I downloaded it from the Apple App Store, I am going to assume that the maker intend it for use on the iPhone or iPad. That being said, I really have no clue why they felt the need to do what the podcast app already does and do it poorly. Apart from the unnecessary redundancy of the app (it adds no apparent benefit over the podcast app), I found the basic features lacking in functionality. The interface is a bit clunky and tries to focus you on streaming your local NPR station when this app is advertised as a streamlined way to manage your favorite NPR podcasts. When using the search function, it takes three clicks in separate menus to get a podcast added to your favorites list and there isn't a complete program list to be found anywhere on the app. I tried using the list menu option but I only found two of the four podcasts I listen to. It's three strikes at this point and this app has been dumped! I'm still not sure why anyone would need it to begin with. Don't waste your time with this one.

Fabulous Content/Stops and Starts

i have so many NPR One favorites would take forever to list. I am , however, having the same issues with the app as others have mentioned. Can't seem to bookmark and pick up where you leave off. Have to start completely over. Will pause for no apparent reason and is difficult to restart. I have none of these issues with the individual apps for StoryCorps, This American Life, etc. Only on NPR One. I love the consept of "One" stop for it all and am quite sure this issue can be corrected. Looking forward to listening to Embedded and Invisibilia straight through.

I would love it if it played what I selected.

I love the design of this app and really want to be a fan but I cannot seem to listen to the shows that I want. When I tried listening to the NPR Politics podcast it would spend 15 seconds loading and then would start playing daily news.

I came to this app looking for an alternative to the web browser because there the program starts over if you attempt to pause or fast forward. I don’t want to have to listen to the first 10 minutes again because I paused the program! Until this app gets fixed it will just be gathering dust.
