Store Performance Index shows overall performance of your app on app stores. It is based on combined ASO & reviews metrics.
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
I really love this app, but mostly because of what it does for me (I listen to it all the time whenever I go) and not because of the performance. NPR APP TEAM...PLEASE fix the bug that makes the app stop working (and often shut down) after a phone call interrupts whatever I’m listening to. It’s been going on for a long time. Also, how hard is it to make sure your algorithm adds shows to your favorites once you follow them or removes them once you stop? Doesn’t seem like it should be that difficult. Today, after a phone call interrupted the show I was listening to and the app closed (twice) I tried to reopen it and go back to what I was listening to. But despite the fact that I listen to the show ALL the time and had turned on the “follow” toggle, the show didn’t and doesn’t even show up in my favorites. Seems like ridiculous little fixes that could really make a difference in the app doing what it’s supposed to do. Ugh.
Using the NPR1 app has become a part of my daily routine. I always start my morning with the Up First broadcast. I like how the app automatically moves between a myriad of shows, since I’m usually multi-tasking and rushing around while listening. However, I do wish it was easier to find which shows I recently listened to or which ads for new shows popped up while I was listening. The content is great, but this part isn’t very user-friendly. Sometimes I hear an ad for a new podcast and before I can process and “click on the screen to learn more,” it’s already gone. There have been many times when I’m driving, cooking, or just somehow disconnected from my phone that I miss a show I wanted to hear more about. Maybe a “recently played” or “recently suggested” would make this easier. When I’m not starting with the news, I tend to switch to other podcast platforms simply because I don’t know or can’t find what I want to listen to on NPR1 (though I know I would rather hear its content). Other than that, I really appreciate the diversity. I don’t subscribe to one political party, so I’m always searching for a more balanced and empathetic coverage that fairly describes both views (even the view I disagree with). Though NPR can still lean more in one direction, it is the best I’ve found so far and I appreciate how the hosts usually refrain from emotional or opinionated responses. I’ll continue listening and using for a long time.
It would be hypocritical of me to rate NPR1 anything less than 5 because even with its frustrating feature shortages, I listen round the clock. I get that the lack of controls/queue/15-sec-skip are to promote binging and “discovery” outside my usual subscriptions. If that’s the goal, then send me more variety in new/local/non-NPR shows. (Even add shows outside my lefty echo chamber :o). I’m over the fact that clicking “interesting” simply gets me more stories from that show or category rather than nuanced insightful predictions like Netflix (yo, non-profit budget). Still, within the simple objectives of the app, there are some essential practical improvements. Many of us listen while driving/doing something else with hands and eyes. We can’t always share, rate or save before the story disappears, and the hmmm moment often comes at the end of an episode. We might not even see the name of the show that just ended so we can look it up. Please add the option to go back or at least see previously heard stories. We also wander away from our desks/attentiveness and want to know what we missed. I’ll put the rest of my suggestions in the app’s suggestion box.
My Radio went out in the truck awhile back and so I don’t have access to 90.1 so I tried out the App and I use it all the time. It’s great for local stories, connects to your local broadcast similar to how the radio method does, or I can use the explore option if I wanna find something specific or I can hit catch up and it plays up to date/recent stories and news coverage. I am constantly driving between towns no ones ever heard of in rural utah and it Connects/ works great- seriously have been impressed on the content and the functionality of it. So, thanks! ps Make sure your phone is updated because there’s one review about it shorting out or bugging but I had that problem so tried installing belated updates cause I’m horrible at doing those on the smart phone and it’s worked great ever since, and the set up in car isn’t that great it’s an old Nissan pushing 300k Miles.
Downloaded this app specifically to listen to Morning and Weekend Edition, as I am able to enjoy other NPR programs using podcasting apps. Unfortunately, there is no way to listen to the complete program in one go, due to it being cut into segments. I am forced to search for the program repeatedly to jump back in from where the app diverts to often unrelated content. I do not understand the point of this app at all, unless the point is to keep the user interacting with it constantly to extract as much data from the user as possible. There are indeed listeners out there who don’t care what gets streamed at them, and aren’t concerned with feeding an algorithm their data. As far as this app goes, however, it would seem to require a lot of effort to end up with a reasonable result. There are many listeners like me, though, who want the news without having to submit to an algorithm’s whims. A shame that this app cannot provide a coherent listening experience that allows the user to be in control. The NPR One app functions like Pandora, and as such is effectively useless.
