NPR One is the one-stop shop for public radio on Android

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!
