Reviewed in A beautiful and improved Android experience
NPRs new app. It allows you to listen to clips (around 5 min each) from NPRs top programs including Planet Money, Fresh Air etc. in a continuous stream. Nice modern Android layout. Most NPR hosts have calming voices, so I use this app at night. I learn stuff and fall asleep calmly. But I assume this is also a great app for morning coffee or your commute.
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 - 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 Android Auto and Android Wear. Skip, pause, and search at a glance without even touching your phone.
Staying at home? You can Chromecast NPR One to your TV or Cast for Audio devices.
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.
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.
