  • Unusable

    Great concept for a nap, I downloaded it because I don’t have much time to read longform articles, but I love the content. I thought this app was just what I was looking for, unfortunately I was dead wrong. this app is unusable, it constantly crashes and freezes, when playing audio it constantly pauses. Great concept terrible execution.
  • Great content, bad design!

    I enjoy listening to the articles published on this app, but unfortunately, the experience is horrible. The app is so buggy that I have to open and close it several times just to listen to one article! I really hope the people behind this app hire talented developers and designers to fix these issues.
  • Fantastic concept and app

    Love this app - I love all of these magazines and news sources, but don’t have enough time to read them all. Now I listen on my commute and the time flies by!
  • Was grateful, till it broke

    I’ve been listening to, and enjoying, Audm for a while. Biggest problem was that it kept trying to make me listen again to something I’d already listened to, or stopped listening to on purpose. Finally figured out to delete the stories-that-would-not-die. Now, when I try to delete such a story, the app quits. If I come back and try to listen to another story . . . The app quits. Tried deleting the app, restarting the device (iPhone or iPad) and downloading the app again. No luck. Tried going to support web page to submit a bug report, not an option. Hoping a lousy rating score will get someone’s attention. Very quick bug fix, please!
  • Keep crashing

    What happened to the app? It keep crashing which make me impossible to play the article. The contents are excellent but the team really needs to keep up the work on this app. It took forever to load the program. When it works, it played a short time then stopped. Sometimes it’s just disappeared from my screen all in sudden.
  • Love the content, but keeps crashing

  • Great content, very bad app

    While this app has incredible content, it has one of the most frustrating UXs ever. It frequently takes the discover pane multiple seconds to load, if it ever does. Good luck if you filter by magazine and try and scroll down to past issues - those load about 10% of the time. This is extremely basic search functionality and the app fails at this. I’m very unimpressed. Update: lowering my review to one star because it won’t even play downloaded content at 1.25x speed on Bluetooth - it mutes the audio when it ends a paragraph on the scrolling text playing at anything about 1x speed playback. It plays content at 1x, but there are weird little blips in the audio when it ends a paragraph too. Honestly, it’s embarrassing how much content this app has but how horrible it is at delivering it. The minimum viable product here is so simple (discovery + playback), and it is just deeply broken.
  • Very buggy

    I would love this app if the following weren’t true: 1. It’s agonizingly slow to start up. 2. Despite the option to download stories for later, it still requires a network connection to play them. Unless you have an unlimited data plan, don’t even think of using it on cellular data—the stories consume huge amounts of data. 3. The actual content offered draws primarily from about 3 sources, though they list 10 times that number.
