3/5 stars

Need options for top page

I love NPR but hate that I have to have "Music" and "Arts & Life" taking up 2/3 of my screen real-estate. Politics, science, education, world... Please, let users chosose which sections go on top! The iPhone app is better.

5/5 stars

I need 6 stars

Just about the perfect app. News streams, music streams, links to free podcasts of the NPR shows, nice design

I'm cheap, but this app finally convinced me I needed to start donating to public radio.

Yeah, it's that good.

3/5 stars

Could easily be better...

While I am an NPR fan, this app could easily be better. As is, you are forced into having certain news items (such as music) displayed. In addition, the app has locked/crashed for me.

The user needs more choice is selecting news streams.
