NPR One is the new audio app that connects you to a stream of public radio news and stories curated for you. Great storytelling and rigorous reporting that informs, engages, inspires and surprises—from the ends of the earth to your own city or town—available to you whenever, wherever. 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—stories that increase your understanding, create connections, enrich your life and enliven your mind. All thoughtfully curated by hand, every day. *You’re in control. Or not.* Just pop in your ear buds, tap your phone and NPR One starts flowing. But now if you want to pause, skip ahead, rewind or share a story with friends, you can do that too. All from a simple app. *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 stories you had no idea would captivate you. Journey around the globe and into the most interesting corners of your community—serendipity making your world bigger and smaller at the same time. *Connected locally.* 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. It’s simple. It’s intuitive. It’s there for you. (Wherever ‘there’ is.) As fast as the world is changing the way it listens to public radio, NPR One is changing the way we deliver it. NPR is here to deliver the public radio experience wherever you are. Whenever you can connect. Here we go.

I just got into this app on my Windows Phone, and it works great - but the Windows 8.1 app doesn't seem to support background audio. It will only play if the app is visible on the screen - if I minimize it or switch to the desktop, it stops playing. When I'm at work, I don't want to have my listening habits constantly visible on my screen, and sacrificing the screen space is annoying.

This app is awesome! The app airs stories based on your local NPR station. I've been listening to NPR for a long time and you don't have to listen to your local station you can listen to stories from any local station from around the country. I like to listen to all of NPR's member station streams.

yes, I can select my local station, but there is no way of getting local programming.... again, like many other windows apps, just go to my browser and the website...

The program starts successfully a little more than half the time. When it is not successful, the NPR One logo stares out at you. Closing then opening can be helpful but only some of the time as well. An icon sits in the task bar when the program is active, but the page preview with the title of the radio story does not update when the radio story changes. Luckily, when you press the volume keys on the keyboard, the NPR One controls appear on-screen next to the volume up/down indicator, with the proper title. Since the program doesn't always start properly, I uninstalled the app. There is a web app available at one.npr.org.

It's just missing a sleep timer, as on the mobile version. Please add that.

Just turn it on and listen! As you 'like' certain stories it curates the stories to your interests, from a huge database of national stories and your local station.

Both windows phone and Windows 8 PC versions of this app are excellent. Good work

Well-designed and works beautifully! Some times the UI for the Next/Pause/Repeat button disappears after leaving the app and coming back to it.

I used to queue stories individually on npr.org, but this is much better: more variety, more local news (though no matter how many times I skip "sports" stories, they keep coming up :). Consistently brings up interesting stories. It does feel odd to skip ahead when a podcast I already subscribe to comes up, but it doesn't appear to interfere with other interests. Swipe navigation is nice, follows standard media playback integration, but the main hang up are the "interesting/share/view story" buttons below the title. Sometimes they're there; sometimes you have to wait for a story to finish, then navigate back to access them (very annoying if you want to "view story" and see images of what is being discussed). And if you accidentally press above or below the button, the story will re-play and you'll lose the one you were listening to. So except for those buttons, a very nice experience.

I like the design and the interface, but what I don't like is the inconsistency. If I just knew that when it started it would work I'd be happy. As it is, I have about a 50% success rate. And, I've not been able to determine what it is that makes it work or not work.
