  • Fix this app!!

    Yo Audm - Great idea. Use it all the time. But it crashes pretty much every time I open it at least once. Usually 2 or 3. And never loads the article the first time I click it. Just holds at “buffering” until I close out the app and try again. And then usually again. It’s a wreck. Do I pay a monthly fee for that bull-isht? I think I do. Plz fix.
  • Good content, terrible app

    I really wish I could give this app five stars. It has content that no one else can touch. However, Audm is SO BUGGY that it is almost unusable. It quits in the middle of articles. It buffers and buffers and buffers, locking you out of articles that you’ve already downloaded. It is slow, even when connected to high speed wifi. Any time you pause it, it crashes in the background, so you end up reopening it over and over. Others here have posted in support of the developer’s customer support, but what good is that if they don’t fix the underlying errors in their programming. This kind of behavior might be tolerable in an free app, but I am sadly beginning to conclude that nothing is likely to change. I don’t plan to pay for this kind of non-performance much longer. Audm, please let me love you.
  • Great App

    I just wish I could share articles that I’ve found so accessibly enjoyable with others I’d like to likewise enlighten. Administrator Ryan assures me this feature is in the works.
  • Unhappy with the inability to search through through articles

    Update: a search function has been added and I am very happy! Great app. Fantastic, quality content, but I’m a little surprised there’s no search function to find articles you might want to read. This is the only reason I cancelled my subscription, because I didn’t want to keep endlessly scrolling back on article streams to find something I wanted to listen to. If I could search, I would re-subscribe.
  • So slow

    Literally takes a minute to open app on my IPhone 8 Plus. Great concept. Needs technical improvement.
  • An essential app. It’s Audible for the best stories in journalism.

    This app is slowly replacing the time I spend searching around for quality podcasts while simultaneously helping me both discover and access some of the finest journalism available. The readers are phenomenal. If you’re someone who spends a lot of their time listening to podcasts or books off your phone during the day, and want to up the quality of the content you ingest, this app is for you.
  • Fantastic program, but the app is awful

    The concept is brilliant and the articles well-narrated, but the app continually crashes and is not easily navigated. It has crashed six times in the last ten minutes alone. Please remedy this issue — otherwise, it’s a full five stars!
  • Loving Literary “bedtime” Narrations

    I loved being read to sleep as a child and didn’t realize how entrenched that patten was until I started sifting through Audm’s options. The real fun has been the discovery of articles and essays from publications I’d never heard of — Guernica, Atavist — in addition to pre-existing favorite subscriptions. I’m almost certain the order final idea wasn’t to have narrators lull listeners to sleep, and the app has got to been a boon to the visually impaired. Who’s to say they don’t enjoy being read to sleep too?
  • App still needs work

    Things have improved somewhat with this app but it still has some serious issues. I loads a bit faster but hard to tell if that is the app or iOS 12. 1. You listen to an article in your queue and it automatically deletes. You start the next article. It abruptly stops and the previous article is downloading itself. I delete it. It starts downloading again. This happened 6 times with one article yesterday, the last about 10 minutes into the second article. Infuriating! 2. Pause doesn’t mean “pause until I hit play again”. Pause sometimes only lasts a few seconds, sometimes longer before it automatically starts playing again. You have to close the app to ensure it won’t randomly start playing again. Incredibly annoying! 3. Once you put an article in your Queue, you no longer have access to the article summary or the date it was published. You should be able to see that same summary info from the Discover tab. Very annoying! 4. When editing you Queue, the same issue with redownloads of deleted content mentioned in item 1 occurs. Sometimes it reverts to the old list after you haves moved pieces up in the queue. Infuriating! 5. On the Discover tab, you find an article (or 10) that you save to your queue. Then you see another article you want to listen to right away. The downloading articles in the queue get priority over the one you are trying to play. You have to wait for everything else to download before you can listen to the article you want to hear. The article that you click Play on should have priority downloading over ones you save for later. 6. Need more playback options in the queue such as “Play from bottom” where it plays articles in reverse order from when you added them to the queue. Handy if several shorter articles of timely content get published that you want to listen to together and don’t want to hassle with reorganizing the queue. Also an option that if I listen to the 6th story in my queue to have it then go to the 7th story, not the 1st one. It would also be nice to be able to filter by publication to listen to articles from a certain source no matter where they are in the queue. Feature enhancement request!
  • Great idea. Pricey.

    Had this for a month, loved it for what it had, but needs more to be $7 a month. May come back when more content is added (Foreign Affairs would be awesome, Pulitzer winners, etc.) or if price drops. Simply not enough to justify $6.99 a month.
