    this app is pure class. content is second to none, well curated and narrated. like everyone else though, i’m having major issues with loading and sudden pauses during play. the newest update didn’t help. it worked fine on day one, but then i filled the playlist with 30 essays and perhaps this is the issue. i really do love this service and hope you figure it out, would hate to see this project fail. i spent all day yesterday loving it and now it’s bricked on me. no sense paying for something that doesn’t work. i would consider alternative platforms like rss or web based on addition to the app. anyhow, cheers.

    This app/service has had the biggest impact on my day-to-day life since Spotify. I can never carve out enough time to sit and read articles in my favorite magazines and journals. Now I listen while I drive, do chores, etc.

    This is kind the APP that I would like to be a long term subscriber. However after six weeks of use, it becomes too painful to continue using. It stop playing midway, repeatedly. So, I cancelled my subscription.
  • Surprised but much room to improve

    Wow the audio content in this app is fantastic! I love the concept of the app I just wish you could filter the articles by category/content rather than simply by publication. Additionally there are some bugs like the inability to pause playback from my airpods (but you can resume no problem) and the fact that the status bar creature like crawls along behind the notch on the iPhone X.
  • Best app in long time

    We may be in this golden age of podcasts, and as much as I love them, they’re no substitute for high quality long form journalism. This app is fantastic for those of us who love journals and magazines, and rely on audio. Great selection, terrific narration, intuitive UI. Best app of 2018, now just needs Apple Watch app!
  • Can we just fix this thing already?

    Very perplexed about how frequently the stories stop after just 30 seconds, maybe a minute or two, and then continue to stop repeatedly until you give up on the possibility of listening to a full article. It seems to be an issue with autolock, but not exclusively. It even occurs when song is fully downloaded. This hasn’t changed since the last update. Three weeks seems like a long time in between updates for an app with this many issues. I’m pretty sure I began using audm almost as soon as it launched, and I love the concept. I use it all the time, despite how painful it can be. It’s gotten much better, but the problems that still exist are astounding. Yes, the last few months there have been huge strides, but how is it that I still can’t listen to an article all the way through without it stopping, freezing or crashing? It’s been out for more than a year right? I sometimes wonder what boardroom of geniuses decided this app was “ready for the public”. I also find it curious that often when someone comments about the horrible app functionality and experience issues, the developer comments “sorry you’re one of the small number of people who have issues” — I respect how responsive your team is, but it is clearly not just a small number, can we just be open about this? Or at least not lie? I think we all want to support this app, don’t make it even harder. I’ve tried to think of my monthly subscription as a “donation” to hopefully keep the developers in business long enough to get this app up to par, but honestly I have to avoid calculating how much I’ve spent over the last year because it’d probably bum me out. As a journalist, I always think about recommending it to my reporter friends as a great way to get more “reading” in... it’s getting close to being “recommendable” but at the moment I think I’d still be too embarrassed.

    Yes, I've had it crash a few times, but those have been few and far between. The content is amazing and the readers are phenomenal. What a difference it is to have actual human instead of robotic text-to-speech voices! My new favorite app.

    Now you can get your liberal propaganda read to you! An amazing app for lazy liberals to learn about the world while you sit at home collecting welfare benefits that working Americans pay for! Truly groundbreaking!
  • Not a good app
