Pros and cons of NPR News app for iPhone and iPad

NPR News app good for

If youre on the go, this app is all you need. Clear and concise information even more so than the mobile website. A wi-fi connection for an optimal radio connection, 3G doesnt cut it.
I love this app which I listen to every morning first thing after I wake up.
Fantastic app! Tasteful layout, easy to navigate, and glitch-free. A "must have" app...particularly handy for those living abroad.
Awesome to be able to listen to WKAR East Lansing 90.5 here in Paris in such style with this clean cut application.
Hearing news reports from Mass. here in Grenoble or when on the road in Europe is TOP. Great app for everyone!!
As written in the title: its a really good app, it has all you need : podcasts, live shows, etc. Its a must have for all NPR fans, and definitely necessary when you are in France !

Some bad moments

The app is good but noway to get the live when You can on the NPRs website
I love this app, but NPR BERLIN in Germany is not included in the listing, which has been on air since April 2006 already!!! WHEN will it be added???
Mostly works, but has major problems and flaws: • Playlists repeatedly hang between items, requiring a manual advance to each new story. • For some reason, "Add to playlist" when browsing stories adds to the START of your playlist. So you wont hear the stories youve added until you restart the playlist, and then you hear them in reverse order. Yes you can edit playlist order manually, but still. • No way to filter news stories by audio content. The majority of stories listed on the main news pages have NO audio, which makes it useless for creating playlists. To get audio stories more than a half day old, you have to browse into individual news programs.
Great as Npr is. But crashes over and over randomly while listening to recorded shows (fresh air with Christoph Waltz on Django Unchained for example).
I love NPR News; however, the app crashes far too often, which is quite frustrating.
Hands down the buggiest app on my iPod. Depending on my (bad) luck, the app crashes half a dozen times listening to a single short program. I cant think of a single legitimate reason for something as commonplace as playing an audio stream resulting in so many crashes. Effectively makes the app entirely unusable. theres really no excuse for this level of poor quality.
