Noa is great.

To me, Noa feels fresh. I find it to be fair in its aggregation of daily news, and I think the “Series” section is the most comprehensive and balanced digest of complex topics in the world of news. I love it. I find it very useful.

Great up with some technical difficulties

Overall this is a great app. It’s easy to navigate, the selection of publications is wonderful, and the readers have easy-to-understand but interesting voices. The main issue comes down to technical challenges. There are often data streaming issues and some days I can’t get anything to load. Currently I’m listening to something from a publication page, but not all publications are available right now and neither is the for you section, which claims I’m offline even though I’m streaming Bloomberg and I can use other apps… These issues are pretty frequent and I’ve noticed them several times a week. It seems like it’s a relatively young company though so hopefully it’s just part of their growing pains and they’ll be able to scale out they’re streaming capabilities soon.

Great idea and content - hard to use

Phenomenal idea and content - but hard to navigate. I hope future versions have better instructions.

A decent start

Noa is easy to use, has a reasonable beginning library of publications, features excellent readers (English only?!), and has some new stories every work day. This is a hopeful alternative when Audible is too bookish and Audm’s articles are just too long and involved. Noa offers healthy audio snacks! Pain points: —Don’t hassle listeners every time they open up the Noa app to “Allow Notifications Now!”. That’s unkind! —Allow listeners to hide articles with 1 click (Create an UNHEARD list?) —No SHUFFLE mode yet.

Loving this app/service!

I highly recommend this NOA News Over Audio app

Excellent app. I am able to listen and learn while I exercise, cook, clean, and accomplish daily tasks. Excellent narrators and a fine selection of articles. The subscription is very worthwhile. There are no ads to interrupt my listening enjoyment. I am so happy to have NOA in my life.
