  • Great content, very bad app

    By Dave J OS
    This is the only app I’ve felt compelled to review, and it’s because the great content is constantly interrupted by the app crashing. Super frustrating. Usually takes around 5 mins for a story to get going without stops and starts. This has been the case for the last year but last month has gotten particularly bad.

    Did the creators of this app take a look at any podcasting apps before developing it? Here you have an app that is designed to serve up longform magazine articles and it can’t even save your place if you pause it. I have been a subscriber for a while and honestly find it more convenient to play the audio directly from the magazine’s website. This needs to be totally re-thought.
  • For every bug fixed two new bugs appear

    The latest bug is that the app doesn’t resume where the article left off. Please fix this !!
  • More science, finance and tech please!

    I discovered this app through the New Yorker article “The Day The Dinosaurs Died.” I was excited and signed up as the the concept and narration seemed superb! It seems I’m in the minority here but after signing up I found it difficult to find articles of interest to listen to. There are too many light culture pieces and human interest stories and not enough science, economic news and tech.
  • New update is awful. Avoid it.

    App isn’t opening. It leaves me at a blank, black screen. Turned on airport mode & it allowed me in but it’s not retrieving anything new. Please fix!

    Excellent journalism- great variety as well. Every week, I look forward to learning something new. I loved the recent piece on “stop the bleeding.” Thank you!

    I’m very excited about this app. I’m just using it for the first time and eagerly building my queue, but the app often fails to let me select stories I’d like to add. It’s not crashing, but it working as designed I think. Once that gets improved I am going to love this! It’s perfect for someone like me who wants to read but rarely has time. I love the selection of publications. Hope the kinks get ironed out!
  • I came back to the App

    I love this app. So many high level journalistic magazine articles (now New Yorker included!) that I want to read but just too dense and time consuming for me. Also the font in almost every text in Apple today is not just gray but LIGHT GRAY and not readable for me. I digress. Now with the AUDM app I can listen to these important writings - a dream come true. I even use some articles to fall asleep to instead of using Calm😊. Improvements in AUDM are noticeable so I’m back to stay.

    I really wanted this to work and agree with previous reviewers that this app is so buggy as to interfere with my enjoyment of it. The content is superb; make no mistake. For a commuter or someone who likes to take long walks, this is an excellent way to listen to long-content articles. BUT...first of all, there should be a download function. Podcasts allow for that and so should this. Not all of us have stellar cellular service (I, for example, live on a mountain that gets spotty service in certain areas). Second, the app will frequently not sync between devices and this can be pretty annoying. Third, the app frequently just greys out and becomes unresponsive both on the device upon which you’ve already got an article playing or on another device which has supposedly synced but hasn’t. You might find your place again, but then the thing freezes. All this is enough to make me cancel a subscription. I know these services can work; THE ECONOMIST has a stellar app, for example, and this is one way where one can avoid paying for multiple subscriptions to multiple magazines—but this is not yet good enough to keep me as a paying customer.
