Amazing content - terrible app

Greatdreamer1980

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.

Great app and idea!

Updated Review: I've been using Audm for over a year now I think, and love it. Not only have I continued to find access to great long form journalism in audio form super convenient, but the expansion of the offerings (wired, new yorker, outdoor) has been stupendous.

My only reservation is that the apps seems to have huge performance issues. Admittedly I'm on an iPhone 5s, but it has 64 gb ram, and from comments seems like others have similar issues. I hope the team is working as hard on rebuilding the app architecture as they are working on content expansion -- I'm willing to put up with the app, but I live in dread others won't and that that will limit the company's success, putting the future of one of my favorite apps in jeopardy!

Developer Response

Thanks for your kind words and candid feedback about app performance. A note, though: we already have Wired!

Love the concept but the App needs some work

I really love the concept of Audm and I think it was a service I was hoping someone would come up with. The content is diverse with articles from several news outlets. Also the readers are proficient and I have enjoyed listening to all the articles so far. It really makes driving a lot more entertaining.
But..
the app is not very user friendly and probably the most frustrating app I have ever used. Sometimes, not always, the app takes a really long time to start, I mean 5-10 minutes of waiting for it to load. Again this does not happen all the time but it does happen once every 4-5 times of use. I hope the developers can fix this problem as I really do think this is a great concept.
