  • Tech is fine, content pure wokeness

    If you live in an OAC bubble, believe that the greatest threat to humanity is the alt-right and need further affirmation that all we need is more government to reach utopia, you will find a lot of well produced audio on this app. If you ever want to hear any dissenting voices, this is a waste of time (and $7/mo).
  • Good Content Flakey App

    The content is really fantastic, as is the ability to adjust the playback speed. The narration is top-notch, too. But the app really ought to function more like a podcast app since the focus is on audio. However, the queue / download for later function is so unreliable as to render the entire app useless; content added to the queue usually says “buffering” forever instead of playing. Removing from the queue and directly playing works, but finding articles back again is not easy, nor is curating sources / authors / topics. And resuming articles is hit-or-miss. The only feature that works reliably is finding and article and playing it start-to-finish on the spot. Also, a Watch app would be great.

    Loving the app so far. Wish it had the New York Times and also Chromecast-ability.

    I’m really disappointed in this app. It rarely works. It gets stuck ‘buffering,’ which is a word I thought I’d never see again after 1990. I dented and reinstalled it but it didn’t help. It plays okay at home but when using cell service it’s awful.

    Streaming audio worked great for my 3 day trial and then broke the minute I was charged. It’s been broken for days now and I doubt it will self right.
  • Unbeatable content!

    And excellent readers! But please - the interface w iPhone is far from seamless. The app often requires closing and reopening to work - the content is visible but the play icon won’t respond. Or the article opens but goes into infinite buffering mode. And most annoying (for me) is that the end of an article is followed without a pause by the first one in the queued list. There is no segue, nor is there a prompt or query to mark the change. And there’s no setting option to address a transition so immediate as to be confusing, especially when it’s the same reader! Please work on the app; just don’t change your fabulous content!
  • Great content / poorly communicated App

    After first starting to use Audm I couldn't understand the criticisms. Great content. What's wrong with the App? My biggest complaint (and the low rating) is that there is no mention on how far back the catalog goes. I now see I only have access to articles that have come out in the two wks. That's really lame. I would have liked to have known that prior to signing up. I mostly care about the New Yorker. No mention in Audm's advertising either. Is that deceptive? Other minor issues: no playlists and ability to move around the queue. Buffering, when starting a story, is a buggy ongoing issue.
  • Good content, BAD app!

    While I love the content, the app is awful. The search function DOES NOT WORK - I search for exact key words from titles and get ALL wrong articles suggested. FIX THIS! You can't just exit an article you don't like -- you have to scroll all the way to the end as if you listened to the whole thing, otherwise it stays in your queue and auto plays again after you finish the next article. FIX THIS! If you pause an article, it sometimes disappears - you must manually go back and look thru the whole list to find it again and push play. FIX THIS! Also, why is there NO ANDROID VERSION??? This app needs serious attention!
  • Best narrative article curation!

    I am cynical about news aggregators for a variety of reasons having tried over time to find something that had the range, quality and price of Audm. Nothing comes close (for me). The narrators are all consistently excellent. The variety of publications is wide. Admittedly they don’t have everything from every issue recorded but I have found their editorial decisions about which articles to pick from an issue of The New Yorker to be spot on. If you want to hear interesting articles (curated at least to my tastes and Audm’s range is so wide I think to many tastes) it can’t be beat especially at the price. Now, having a few weeks with it, the App can really be glitchy.
  • Good content. Super buggy app.

    I like the content and the idea is novel, however the app is super buggy, things that I download on WiFi can’t be replayed without re-downloading again. I’ve redownloaded the app multiple times, forced closed it multiple times and still no luck. Hopefully they will fix this issue. I’m a new subscriber so not certain if this is a new problem or not.
