  • Amazing content - terrible app

    By 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.
  • Great Content, unreliable

    The content provided by this app is super. However, it’s always been slow to load, etc. But now with the latest update it just doesn’t work at all. I worked with tech support and most of the problems are now resolved. Very responsive.
  • Improving so fast

    The app has come a long way, and the partners they are adding are amazing.
  • Great idea, horrible team, horrible execution

    Cool idea but wow is this company incompetent. I've never used an app that is so non functional. I honestly can't suggest this to friends and family because the app is so bad. It takes 10 minutes of clicking an article to get it to play. The app freezes 2 out of 3 times you open it. The audio player just randomly stops and won't load. I emailed the founders and they say they are aware of the hugs. That was 3 months ago. No update! Get your **** together
  • At times troublesome

    A great idea... and wonderful when it works. The app tends to be very slow, and it frequently crashes on my phone.
  • Perfect for commutes

    This is the service I've been waiting for. The readers are the best I've heard anywhere and the partnership roster is fantastic. All of my favorite publishers in one place. As a lover of longform journalism, this app made me dislike my commute exponentially less.
  • Come on folks!

    I so want this app and service to work! Most of the time I can’t even get past the splash screen, it just freezes. When it works it’s great, but so far totally unreliable.
  • Content is good. App is junk.

    It crashes *all* the time without any discernable pattern. I have to say, I've never seen a less stable app. With an app that buggy one would expect frequent updates and fixes. Nope, not in this case. I am almost at a point of cancelling subscription and getting rid of the app.😡 After updating to the latest version per developer's suggestion app crashed every time I swipe down to refresh.
  • 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!
  • Love listening to The Atlantic to work!
