  • Really Amazing

    This is the first app review I’ve ever left. I’m really confused by other reviewers issues with the interface. Everything works seamlessly for me. The content is reliable and has entirely changed the way I commute. It’s also basically allowed me to cancel my beloved New Yorker print subscription. I had an issue with a beeping in my wireless headphones and the developers were prompt in responding to it. Even if there are some kinks - which I myself have not seen - the content far outweighs them. Get in on an early and affordable rate because I really think this app is going to take off.
  • Good Articles and Narrators Bad App

    The articles and content on this application are fantastic. The narration is professional and the audio quality is high. I wish I could give this app a better review, but the application itself simply does not work. The audio is consistently pausing. The application is slow and often takes long to load articles. The app crashes regularly. I’ve been using the application for over six months now with the anticipation that these bugs would be fixed. Unfortunately, it seems like the company is not interested in creating a usable application, I will be canceling my subscription.
  • Great content, awful app

    I work in app development and I have to say, I’m sure it’s the weaving together of so many sources of content that weighs this app down but—it’s a substantial issue and only getting worse. I used to recommend this app to people. Now I do not. Debating whether to keep paying for something I can barely ever use. Stories won’t load or stop playing suddenly, something I am listening to will just disappear. It’s very frustrating. Such a cool idea but the execution needs a lot of work.
  • I was rooting for you!! We were all rooting for you!!

    I really want this app to be good. The content is absolutely superb, and the app just plain can't handle itself. 1) downloaded content disappears 2) deleted downloads RE-APPEAR 3) play/pause functionality is barely there if the app is in the background 4) when paused, the app times out in a heartbeat, requiring the whole app to be restarted if you wanna continue playing Of all the things I pay for, audm is the service where I feel my money is least well used. I am quite sad about that.
  • Content is wonderful but app is impossible

    I love the content but the app is impossible, it is constantly crashing and every few minutes I’m having to push play or restart it. Really is starting to make it not worth it
  • Great app!

    I am not a podcast guy but came across this app on the New Yorker site. Been using it about 3 months, primarily as I walk or bike around the city. It’s great; excellent readers and well curated articles. I listen to probably 10-14 articles a week and it’s great!

    since writing the review below the developer has been working to correct the problems that i and other reviewers have noted. this concept is really solid so it's gratifying that the developers seem committed to doing the work to make sure it works. "the app is glitchy af. the content is good but it hiccups so bad in the playback it is impossible to listen to a story."
  • Wait for a new version

    I bought a new phone so I could use this app but so far it’s full of glitches. They’re very nice and respond to my complaints but so far all the updates and patches have failed me. Maybe save your money for now. It might get better.
  • Great idea, unbelievably buggy

    Gave up after multiple conversations with support team. Every time I open it the app hangs. Needs to be reset, re-installed...and then it forgets where I was. So every use involves me being my own support person. Would’ve worth it if it worked predictably. But it is predictable that it won’t work.
  • Previously given this a one-star, but...

    But since I can’t seem to revise that review, I decided to write this new one. After an update, the app became very glitchy, with a lot of pauses between paragraphs and crashes. When I got in touch with support (mainly to tell them I’d never recommend their app to anyone), one of the developers, Ryan, responded almost instantly. Over the course of a day, he helped to resolve the problem (and acknowledged that they knew of this and had been working to fix it) and another update was also released. The app now works beautifully and delivers exactly what I’d hoped it would: an audio selection of terrific long-form articles from a variety of publications. I have discovered new magazines through this service (who knew The Bitter Southerner even existed?) as well. If you enjoy good journalism but don’t want to spring for multiple subscriptions, this is a very nice compromise.
