Not for me. What I've found is that the local stations work fine but I cannot do a search for other stations. When I do so, it crashes. I do seem to be able to play the hourly news and selected programs, however.Solution: posted by bottlerocket;
Delete app and reinstall.
Worked for me.
Sadly, NPR doesn't seem to have devoted much effort to the app. The problem of a crashes is unresolved (checked it after I installed iOS 5) and the advice to uninstall and reload seems to be nothing more than a default response....I emailed NPR about it and they said to delete the app and reload. I've done that three times with no noticeable improvement.
The app does say, Beta, but I wish they'd go back to whatever previous iteration that worked. I just wonder if the current app software focuses on iPad2 to the detriment of iPad1?
