Earlier this summer, we shared an update about our ongoing work for the NPR App and invited app users to help us test and develop new features. Many of you responded, and we're incredibly thankful to those who did. Inspired by your insights and suggestions, we've been hard at work over the past few months improving the app experience, fixing bugs, and developing some features that we think you'll be excited about.

It's hard to believe that it's been just two months since we introduced the new NPR app for iOS, the first major redesign of NPR's flagship news app since its creation nearly a decade ago.

We've heard from many of you about your experience using the app and we can't thank you enough for taking the time to offer your thoughtful feedback and questions. This launch was the product of many months of research, testing and development, but we can learn so much more now that our work is in the hands of more than a million active users.
