What's New in Version 1.0.11
Fixes bug that prevented playback in airplane mode.
Amazing, awesome concept and articles; buggy and annoying app
This app is a godsend, but it is buggy. It stops playing mid-article. Stops playing, as in you have to re-click the play button. And there's no assurance it will start again. It might just crash. Or do nothing. It also pauses for seconds, then starts again. And there's no way to know whether it will restart again, so you spend 10-20 seconds waiting for it to restart, which it might do, or you might have to interrupt what you are doing to restart it. It also crashes spontaneously. And- it'll hangs for >5 seconds. No button pressing works. It's just frozen. Then it starts working again. Or, it hangs for >5, then crashes.
The audm idea is amazing. The implementation is very bad. If this could be reworked, audm could be a juggernaut of a service. Here's to waiting for that.
Amazing content - terrible app
Just to be clear: The content offered is first class. A great selection of some of the finest journalism the US/UK has to offer (only the New Yorker is missing). Unfortunately the app is frustratingly buggy that I gave up: Frequent crashes, articles stop playing right in the middle, downloads not working, button in-active (e.g. the "+" button to start a download works approx. every 10th time for me...), downloads suddenly vanishing (especially frustrating when you boarded a 12 hour flight and were looking forward to listening to some articles) etc.
Unfortunately the app also did not improve at all over the last few weeks - which is annoying as the problems are so glaring that also the developers have to be aware of them.
Where's the support?
I love the idea of this and the quality of the narrations is top notch. I subscribed about a week ago and cannot determine whether any new stories have been posted. The dates for articles say things like "May 1st" (2 weeks in the future) and there seems to be no way to sort by date. Most frustrating is that I cannot find any way to contact support. I'll discontinue my contract and try again at a later date.
