Ratings and Reviews
Amazing content - terrible app
Update: Since I wrote this review two things have changed - the app has become much better and stable. All the things I criticized have been resolved - downloading articles, seamless playing, etc now just works - the app is still not perfect, but now the problems are minuscule. At the same time the content has further improved - now the app also carries articles by the New Yorker, the last significant holdout. Al this makes this offering now almost perfect and I’m super happy having returned as a subscriber!
Old review: 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.
😻 Turning a customer's experience around is what makes it all worth it! Thanks for updating this review and don't ever hesitate to tell us if you have more trouble in the future.
Never seen customer service so responsive
Like most of its subscribers, I love the content of this app. Audm utilizes riveting articles from some of the most erudite English-language magazines in the world—the New Yorker, the Atlantic, the New York Review of Books—and had them narrated by speakers who uniformly have superb diction, inflection and pitch. Like many subscribers, I was annoyed when the app crashed, but also struck by the company’s urgency to correct the issue. When I couldn’t get it up and functioning again, even with the repair, I sent an email to Co-founder Christian Brink, who immediately responded, told me how to correct the problem and then followed up to make sure all was well. Audm is a great app, but most of all this is a tech company that takes customer service seriously. I’m a fan of the product, but most of all of the people behind it.
You are a better customer than we deserve!
Excellent app, content is getting there
If you are an auditory learner, this app is for you. I’ve been able to finish my weekly NYer articles (some are really long and take longer to get through) more consistently since subscribing to this app, and also listened to articles from other outlets I might not have clicked on. The narration is spot on, I’ve grown so used to Julia Whelan’s voice!
Suggestions: Adding a sleep timer would greatly increase this app’s usability. I occasionally download episodes for long plane rides without WiFi, and if I fall asleep, I find that the played episodes disappear from my download list. Perhaps a sleep timer would help and I’d still be able to pick up where I left off. I also can’t wait for more outlets (maybe magazines like n+1, Baffler, Foreign Affairs etc) to share their content with Audm for more variety! Otherwise, wonderful app.
Thank you for this wonderful review! Good news: a sleep timer is coming very soon. We're about to ship search functionality, and sleep timer will be next. Oh, and we love Julia's work too! :)
