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 1.5.3

NPR One editors are continually listening to all of public radio and trending podcast stories to play for you when you launch the app everyday. They hand pick great stories for your Suggestions list that you can select from when you tap on the Search button. In this release we've added a better way to identify the podcast suggestions and the latest podcast episodes from the ones you follow.

In the last release there was bug that would unexpectedly launch NPR One overnight. This only affect Apple Watch listeners and we have fixed that in this update. Sorry about that!

Let us know what you think in our Facebook or Google+ communities, or tweet to @NPRone with any feedback. Thanks for listening and for supporting public radio.

Customer Reviews

Add a "I've already heard this" button

Fantastic app that has changed how I listen to NPR drastically- love it.
However, like many listeners, I hear NPR shows via traditional radio, podcasts, and the NPR One app which means NPR one will often serve me a story I've already heard. I end up skipping these stories, even if I find them very interesting, and I imagine this causes problems for the algorithm choosing which stories to serve. Adding a "I've already heard this" button would help a lot!

Keep up the good work!

Better than the radio

This app has totally changed the way I listen to NPR. The interface is clean and easy but more importantly so is the model. Much like the radio it just plays content without making you choose what you want, but unlike the radio it has the ability to skip stuff you aren't interested in right now. They even mix in podcasts and long form content.

Great app, excellent NPR content

One of my most frequently used apps. I listen everyday and really enjoy the content and the app itself. My only (minor) qualm is that it sometimes plays stories I have heard already. That notwithstanding, I would highly recommend this to anyone who listens to NPR.
