Long time listener, first time reviewer.

I am an avid listener and love most of the shows. The news is more oriented to the UK & is repeated all weekend, so I avoid it, especially on weekends. Many of the same promos have been played for years. “the RV had a musty smell, but I like that’. Lately, there has been an annoying faint background whine along with the feed. I suppose they are on a shoestring budget, so please accept my apologies for sounding complainy.

Great content, good app, missing key feature

I downloaded this app to hear some shows that were aired on my local NPR station but aren't listed in the NPR app. The content and display of the shows in this app are great. I like the look and feel and navigation. I like that I can easily click to share an article. One major missing feature, which is big enough for me to knock it down a star, is the lack of a "playlist". I can download a story, I assume to listen to while offline. That's great. But I just want a simple list of all the stories I've bookmarked, without downloading them and without having to navigate to each channel to search.

3 stars for technology

I have reviewed this app before. I’m knocking to three stars, from four.

The caching is terrible. It does not manage very well with downloads or content when the signal is spotty.

I only ever use it anymore, because often content is available here first
