Excellent public radio content; lousy app

I rate it 3 stars mostly because of the content. The execution is drastically worse than I’d expect from public radio.

There are far too many bugs to list in a review, so suffice it to say that they should fire their app developers and hire a reputable company to fix the many issues. The Watch integration is even worse than the iPhone app. I haven’t used it in my iPad.

On the content side, I get far more non-NPR content than I would prefer, but zero PRI. Wha? Is there a fight between NPR and PRI?

I use the NPR News app for “Morning Edition” and “ATC,” utilizing the Playlist extensively. Not to say that the NPR One feed is inappropriate or far outside my interests, but I wish more NPR would come through, and less long-form radio shows like “Wait...Wait”, which is a great show but not so good as a podcast. Did I mention there’s no Public Radio International content?

Supposedly, the NPR One app learns over time what I prefer, but I’ve not experienced much difference in content, no matter what I skip or rate. I’ve used it for many months, minus the times I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall because the app got so glitchy it wouldn’t function.

So if they fix the many issues and increase reliability overall, I’d happily rate this as highly as I rate my local NPR & PBS stations. As it is, I’d sometimes rather use a podcast player than deal with NPR One. It’s a shame because it’s such a good idea.

As essential as my morning coffee

Using the NPR1 app has become a part of my daily routine. I always start my morning with the Up First broadcast. I like how the app automatically moves between a myriad of shows, since I’m usually multi-tasking and rushing around while listening. However, I do wish it was easier to find which shows I recently listened to or which ads for new shows popped up while I was listening. The content is great, but this part isn’t very user-friendly. Sometimes I hear an ad for a new podcast and before I can process and “click on the screen to learn more,” it’s already gone. There have been many times when I’m driving, cooking, or just somehow disconnected from my phone that I miss a show I wanted to hear more about. Maybe a “recently played” or “recently suggested” would make this easier. When I’m not starting with the news, I tend to switch to other podcast platforms simply because I don’t know or can’t find what I want to listen to on NPR1 (though I know I would rather hear its content).

Other than that, I really appreciate the diversity. I don’t subscribe to one political party, so I’m always searching for a more balanced and empathetic coverage that fairly describes both views (even the view I disagree with). Though NPR can still lean more in one direction, it is the best I’ve found so far and I appreciate how the hosts usually refrain from emotional or opinionated responses. I’ll continue listening and using for a long time.
