Great Concept and Execution / Too Expensive
I love the concept behind this App. I listen to Podcasts constantly, and this fits right in with my news/media consumption habits. I'm in the middle of the trial, and I'm really enjoying the content, the high quality of the reading, and the interface. The Atlantic is what drew me in, and is definitely the content that I'm most drawn to here. That said, the subscription cost feels a bit high... I'd be happy to listen to some advertising, perhaps different subscription tiers could be introduced. I'm having a difficult time justifying paying to hear articles that are freely available to read with online advertising. Also, I'd love to see additional publications added, and the volume of content expand. The App itself is very attractive, though I have encountered some playback glitches. Love what you're doing and excited to see how it evolves. I want to subscribe after the trial ends, please make it worth it for me!!
Well-read without reading
This app is what I've been waiting for. I'm an adult with ADHD. It's hard for me to sit down and read long form publications because my mind won't let me focus on sentences without going into this rabbit hole of spin-off ideas about the writing, the positionality of the writer, the content, the blind spots in the perspective, and so on. It makes it hard to read often and read a lot.
This app helps me with all that. I can take in articles in a quarter of the time (thanks to double-time playback capabilities), which has made me feel so confident and well-read. I've struggled with achieving that feeling prior to his app because I'd barely get through one article in a day. Now, I just "read" 5 articles in an hour an fifteen minutes!
It's perfect for listening/learning while cleaning, cooking, driving, or any other activity that takes your time but not your full attention. I see people have critiques about the price, which I get considering that there aren't many publications available just yet, but I'm trusting that the content will eventually expand. I also imagine that the developers are paying people money to read the articles so nicely, so I don't mind paying the $7 a month. 2 cups of Starbucks is not going to break my bank, even if I am currently unemployed.
Get this. Pay for it, and be smarter for it.
Didn't Know I'd Like It But Now I'm Sold
When I heard about this app I was lukewarm on the idea. I don't have the patience to sit still and read longform articles in my daily life. But I like audiobooks so I thought I'd give it a try. Now I love this app. Its great to have these articles in audio form. I actually find myself opening up Audm more frequently than Audible. The performers are excellent and I can always find an article that interests me. I was also surprised that the app shows you a written version of the article in such an easy to follow along format. Very helpful.
