Can’t get enough of NPR? Literally? Have we got an app for you. It’s called NPR One, and it’s an infinite stream of personalized radio stories that will keep you going all day long.

NPR One is basically a curated stream of local and national news mixed in with segments from NPR’s powerhouse shows like This American Life, All Things Considered, On The Media and Radio Lab. All you do is load up the app and you’ll start hearing stories. If you mark the story you’re hearing as “interesting” the app will then know to play more stories like it going forward.

It’s a great app: essentially, the Pandora of public radio. And heck, it even works on the web. But the app experience is the best one… and best of all, it’s totally free.

You can download NPR One from the iTunes App Store here.
