    You can download stories to listen to later/offline by tapping the + icon. However, tapping on the + icon doesn't work most of the time. 😤

    Conceptually, this is a fantastic application. The articles are interesting, the narration is flawless, and the user interface is intuitive. In practice, this app is an absolute disaster. It is almost unusable because of the slow load times, inability to start, and repeat freezing. My advice to the company is to hire a new CTO. From an outsiders perspective, it appears everyone else within the company is doing their job incredibly well. The major piece missing from this concept is developing a working application.
  • Content is great - App is BUGGY AF

    Content and articles are amazing; readers are great etc. I won’t stop using the app without a comparable alternative but... The app is glitchy AF- It’s exponentially slow to load the app, it crashes, it closes for no reason if I leave the app or pause it for a couple minutes. Brace yourself for buffering so bad that you have to close the app and restart it. Sometimes multiple times.
  • Amazing content, dysfunctional app

    I love Audm. I really want to use it. The content is what I’m here for. But for the last few weeks, it crashes almost immediately upon booting up, or, if I’m lucky enough to load the list of available articles, crashes when I try to play anything. Please fix this. This has been going on for too long that I am having a hard time justifying my subscription and will cancel it if it remains unusable.
  • Fantastic content but the app still needs work

    This app has an incredible selection of articles, well read, and it’s nice that one can read along in sync with the audio. But the app itself needs work. A couple of important issues: 1) If I am listening to an article, press pause, and then go to another app, the app often seems to just die in the background, so that if I press pause on my headphones again, music starts playing instead. This happens far less frequently in the audible app or in any of the podcast apps I’ve tried, but it happens constantly in Audm, and really degrades the experience of using the app. 2) I wish the app would give me more information about the content I’m listening to. For example, it includes some articles from old issues of the New Yorker (which is wonderful), but I can see no way of finding out when each article was written. 3) When I start up the app after not using it for a while, I have to navigate to the queue and find the thing I was listening to most recently. I would strongly prefer to go straight to it. I want so badly for these things to be fixed, because I love the content, but I find myself not using the app much, particularly because of my first issue.
  • From 4 stars to 5 (10, if they had them)

    I have always loved the amazing content this app offers, so smartly curated from a wide range of periodicals. I’ve also enjoyed my interactions with the guys, who seem on-call to help users 24/7 (take a day off, guys!). Now that it’s loading with lightening speed, Audm is simply perfection.
  • Five stars because...

    It’s a great idea that as far as i know nobody has duplicated. However the load times are often painfully slow
  • Needs work

    Maybe it just happens to me and I really like the idea of articles being read by a person with a great voice. But, without fail, the article continues to scroll and the reader is absent. I am trying AUDM again, but it still stops and I’ll probably cancel.
  • Great content but app still takes years to open

    Had to cancel my subscription because the app takes forever to open. Latest updates didn’t seem to make much difference. I even deleted and reinstalled.
  • Opaque charges

    I downloaded this app. Then I learned that there was a free trial period. Then it told me my free trial period would last until 2 days from now. Nowhere was there a clue how much I would be charged, nor how I would, should I choose to, discontinue my subscription before the point in time two days from now (not stated) when the charging would commence. Forget it.
