We are happy to announce we have a listening widget. Finally!

The player and playlist experiences have been streamlined. We've hopefully fixed some of the playlist issues around listening to entire programs and cleaned up some other pesky bugs.

We've also added sponsorship to our story pages. You can learn more about the different kinds of support NPR needs to maintain itself - including corporate sponsors - here: http://www.npr.org/about/support/

Landscape support removed in this update. Tablet users may want to stick with old version.

I really want to like this app but i find it very difficult to use. Very sluggish on a Moto Atrix 4g and seems to hang frequently. Audio quality can be iffy with occasional skips like that of an old LP. Hopefully an update will fix it. If there were an alternative i would use it.

I cannot access Morning Edition stories while it is "on air". The old app version let me add stories to a playlist while the program was still on the air. Not all stories are available to listen from the day's program.

Takes 30 seconds to a minute to load stations. Often cuts out when streaming stations and requires a manual reload. This issue could be related to switching between different wireless routers and 4G. Also suddenly starts playing unexpectedly after use.

Good for reading stories I can barely hear the audio, even though my volume is up to maximum. Also, no exit button.

Radio stations don't work They play an advertisement then stop working. Fix please. Also: What is the difference between this app and 'NPR One'? Can we get something from one that we can't get from the other? Thanks

Great strides I've noticed far less problems in recent months. Most of the major issues were solved. Edit - with the latest Android update it can now only advance to the next story if the phone is unlocked.
