Public radio isn’t exactly known for being fancy. And the NPR One app on Android Auto is a testament to that.
I currently have three ways to listen to National Public Radio in my car. There’s terrestrial radio — which, despite every sentence that comes after this one, isn’t going away anytime soon. Then there’s satellite radio, which I’ve been enjoying for years now. And now I have the NPR One app on Android Auto.
That’s a lot of pledge drives.
But as far as Android Auto apps go, NPR One might actually be the most restrained we’ve seen.
