Getting NPR on your phone has never been easier

When it comes to public radio on your phone, your search might just get to end with the new NPR One app. Released today into the Google Play Store, NPR One pulls together public radio stations from across the United States and works to automatically curate stories you'll want to listen to. It is, as NPR notes, "public radio made personal."

With NPR One you can listen to a live stream from any NPR station in the nation, and easily switch to others if you so desire. The standard pause, forward, and rewind options are there. You can also mark a stories as interesting, which will help NPR One start to cultivate stories that seem most interesting to you:

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.

NPR One is available now for free from Google Play, joining other NPR apps like the well-received NPR News. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Morons that still think there's two sides of the isle are the real problem. Yes, NPR "leans" left but your comment is a clear indicator you believe there are two sides. Wake up

Perpetual/endless wars. A massive empire that keeps growing larger at an inconceivable rate. We have Federal Reserve Notes instead of money backed by something more than the confidence of other governments. Rich and poor people living off the government through some sort of handout. Regulations always get enacted but none of them ever get disposed of.

I could go on and on. The point is that we (the world) has a problem and it's not this left wing/right wing facade.

Intensely expressed notions like this only serve as a contribution to the damaging polarization that exists in the US right now.

Depends on what you're talking about. Their news reporting leans a bit to the left, but it's more centrist than most news outlets in the US.

NPR's entertainment programming (and the shows they license from AM, etc), though, is much, much more liberal-leaning.

It really sucks that I have to look for an alternative to TuneIn radio now that they are asking for personal info just to listen to local radio SMH.

Why would I need National Propaganda Radio when I can get Radio Havana and Radio Moscow on shortwave and listen to Our Beloved Leader's endless speeches on CSpan?

Wow, people are lunatics here. Can't help it if facts have a liberal bias. What amazing propaganda I heard on NPR today (first time I ever tuned in, actually) such as actual details on tax reform, and the migration habits of monarch butterflies. Such powerful propaganda!

I really enjoy NPR and the various shows on my local San Antonio station, as soon as I downloaded and logged in , there was my station Yeah!!!

I wish PBS had an app
