  • Excellent app, content is getting there

    If you are an auditory learner, this app is for you. I’ve been able to finish my weekly NYer articles (some are really long and take longer to get through) more consistently since subscribing to this app, and also listened to articles from other outlets I might not have clicked on. The narration is spot on, I’ve grown so used to Julia Whelan’s voice! Suggestions: Adding a sleep timer would greatly increase this app’s usability. I occasionally download episodes for long plane rides without WiFi, and if I fall asleep, I find that the played episodes disappear from my download list. Perhaps a sleep timer would help and I’d still be able to pick up where I left off. I also can’t wait for more outlets (maybe magazines like n+1, Baffler, Foreign Affairs etc) to share their content with Audm for more variety! Otherwise, wonderful app.
  • Keep up the good work !

    I’ve never written a review before, but I felt like I had to for this app. I was intrigued with the concept when it first launched and I was willing to pay, what I thought at the time was, a fairly hefty price for the subscription. The content was great but the app was so bad that it could hardly open half the time. But much has changed since then, and I even had the opportunity to chat with one of the developers and describe one of the bugs that had been plaguing the app in order to help it improve. Now I gladly pay what I consider a nominal fee for such great content. This is the first app I open in the mornings to listen to while I get ready and my go-to app for when I’m commuting. I can’t imagine how my life would be without it. I hope the devs keep on improving and innovating. It would be great to be able to preferentially choose which publications make it to my home screen . It would also be nice to have the ability to favorite some stories in order to find them easier. Personally, I have stumbled upon some amazing long form reporting that I would not have ever found had it not been for your app, but I don’t ever want to forget about them. Your app makes it so easy for these invaluable stories get lost after they have been played. Lastly, please consider integration with pocket so that users can save the stories or their web links for easier sharing. I know not everyone has this app or is willing to pay but if I could easily charge the link where the story is online, it would make it easier for discussion . Overall, amazing growth and improvement in the stability of the app and I hope to see continued support in the future ! Best wishes

    Would you please add a sleep timer?
  • Needs a slide and more frequent content updates

    Read-along text is a great innovation, but the app has no way to slide to navigate content; +/- 15 or scrolling thru text don't cut it. Also, seems slow to add new content.
  • Fix that download bug!!

    This app and its features are awesome, BUT every time I open the app it wipes my downloads. Ill cancel my subscription shortly but sad to do so.

    This app is fantastic. Great journalism is out there but it’s hard to find the time to sit down and read the stuff, so Audm provides audio recordings, read by some of the best professional narrators, of recent high quality content from the New Yorker, The Atlantic, and other publications. The only problem is that not nearly enough content makes it onto the app. I pay $7 per month and will gladly continue to do so if only there was more content appearing every day that I can listen to. Instead I find myself using it only once in a while since I quickly exhaust all the articles that come up. Great articles appear every day all over the internet. I wish they could work out a deal with more publishers to produce more recordings even if it incorporates shorter articles as well.
  • Not There Yet

    Content-wise this app is amazing. Great selection of articles and top notch audio and performance quality. But..It’s frustrating to try and find where you left off. Or to navigate around in a story. I have no idea what that floating arrow/compass thing does, other than get me more lost. Also missing: the feature in the Apple podcast app I use the most - the timer that stops playing audio after a set amount of time.
  • It stops/freezes too often

    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. 2018.04.09 The APP works smoothly ever since reinstalled by the helpful support staff. I have continued to subscribe and enjoy the AUDM.
  • Getting better

    The content is the star here. The app is still lacking some basic podcasting app features like a sleep timer and add later. A recent update has helped greatly.
