  • Great content. Terrible app

    This is such a cool service, partnering with such great sources of long form journalism, and after two days I will be canceling my subscription. Here are some of the reasons: -Any audio interruption (ie an alert from google maps, a call, AirPods come out) causes the app to stop, and restarting puts it back about 45 seconds. Very annoying and downright dangerous to try to listen while driving. -there is no way to filter content by date. Such a basic thing and such a glaring omission. -you cannot filter content by more than one publisher at a time -you cannot filter content by anything other than one publisher at a time. -search results are listed at random, again no way to filter. You might get something from 2016 as your top hit, and it’s not clear why. -You cannot subscribe to article sources, topics, anything. Just have to use the inadequate search and filter functionality every time you want to find something to listen to. This app is a real disservice to the great work these publishers and narrators are doing. If even some of the basic functions I’ve pointed out were added I might consider a subscription. As it is, it’s more aggravation than it’s worth.

    It will grow to be a big free catalogue, serving as great marketing, and a limited resource for the poor. Because the poor needs to read, too. It’ll also be a better “free trial.” And it is extremely unlikely to cause sale cannibalism.

    I like the content for the most part. I love being able to listen to long form articles! Some of the readers have an affectation which is not necessarily desirable, it can at sometimes be distracting. But this app has 2 major glitches: 1. It does not turn off. My phone battery and headphones ran way down in my purse. I turned it off and clicked out several times to no avail. I had to remove and reinstall. 2. When one story ends suddenly an unfinished one starts. I tried to adjust it but it keeps happening. Makes no sense. Who wants to finish one and have the middle of another thrust upon us? Maybe the unfinished one was a bore? I applaud Audm for starting up! There should be an article/short story app.

    Audm changed my life! I am subscribed to a few mags (The New Yorker, New York, etc.) but have always had that nagging anxiety not having enough time to thoroughly read them. Enter AUDM- the pressure is gone! I now listen to the articles all the time- cooking, cleaning, exercising...And it put some new publications on my radar I was previously not familiar with (like Atavist and Outside for example.) I had some problems with the app initially, but contacted the developers and they walked me through fixing those, very patiently and graciously. I tell about Audm all my friends and family, and a few people are now subscribers. Thank you Audm!

    I love listening to podcasts and audiobooks. But there is absolutely no way I am going to subscribe to (undeniably excellent) paper magazines and then sit down to read them. When I have a magazine subscription, the magazines just pile up and mock me for not reading them. Audm is the solution. I can now enjoy wonderful articles from The Atlantic, The New Yorker and the surprisingly great Outside magazine—plus many other quality publications. Everything is read by pros, you can see the text scroll as it's read, it's easy to rewind or go to the beginning of a paragraph, you can speed up or slow down the reading... it's a great interface. And it costs less than even one magazine subscription would. I love Audm, and I'm sure you will, too.

    I have subscribed to Audm for several months now and the app, while still a little glitchy, just keeps improving. I am somewhat visually impaired, and it is a real pleasure to have the New Yorker, the Atlantic, the NYRB, the London Review of Books and other quality journalism read aloud to me. Audm has become my indispensable app and I listen every day.
  • This app has changed my walk to work

    It’s so great to know I can always find something worthwhile and expressively read to listen to as I walk to work. Excellent selection from all the publications I would read if I had more time. And then if I take the subway home, I can instantly find the spot where I left off listening and switch to reading mode.
  • Great content, clunky app

    I must agree with Greatdreamer1980’s original review (written over a year ago) - those same problems still persist: frequent crashes, poor bookmarking, completely inadequate internal search engine, the list goes on and on. Sadly, I can only continue to pay if this disaster is updated. As it is, it’s not worth 99¢ (and the actual price is $6.99 MONTHLY!). Greatdreamer1980 must have been paid off to change his review, and it is to the credit of the developers that they have allowed the original one to stand. It is still completely accurate in my experience.
