A great addition to everyday habits

Got a recommendation to this app 2 weeks ago and so far so good. Articles in an audio form from various sources and in different topics. I am using it during my commute to work and back and it helped me catch up on a-lot of articles and topics i usually save for later read and never do. The app makes things simpler but doesnt skimp on quality or design. Its a great addition to my daily habits.

Love the app

As a commuter, I am always looking for content to keep me entertained on the road. I’ve always went to audio books, and more recently I tried listening to short TED podcasts. Spokn fills in a void of listening to great ideas published on media outlets, that only consume 10-15 minute each. It is awesome, and a new favorite.

Love this app

I’m really enjoying this app. It’s great for my time at the gym… or when I’m stuck in traffic! I love that I can listen to articles from publications like The New York Times and the FT. Lots of useful stuff on the app about business, science, exercise, healthy eating. I’m even liking the culture pieces, which isn’t normally my thing.
