My favorite app to have on during my commute. I love podcasts, and NPR, and current event stories, but I rarely have enough time to read those interesting/entertaining/smart magazine articles that come up in my newsfeed all the time. This company not only reads those to you, but it’s roster of incredibly talented voice performers makes you feel like the listener and the writer are both taken care of and you can just relax and enjoy the articles. High production value and tons of magazine articles to choose from. You’d be hard pressed to find so much quality and value. Bravo. Love this.
Audm amplifies these well-crafted words through the voices of beautifully-spoken narrators. It is a delightful alternative to the grinding outrage of television discourse.
This is the first time I have ever penned a review for an app. AUDM, however, is unlike any app I’ve ever downloaded. Every person has a unique amount of money, intelligence, good fortune, etc. But we are all allocated exactly 24 hours in a given day. The ability to listen to the most relevant long form journalism while doing activities that I must do anyway (driving, exercising, cleaning) means that I am able to get more out of my allotted 24 hours. For this I am grateful. The articles are excellent- I think it is fair to say these are among the best current writers alive today. AUDM makes it even better by engaging the very best narrators in the business to read the articles. Grover Gardner is, without question, the best reader in the history of audiobooks or articles. Julia Whelan does an excellent job every time. The entire narrating crew is consistent and excellent. The app’s performance has been flawless and the customer service is competent, helpful and responsive (I asked a question via email that was addressed immediately). Rarely can an app make a person smarter. AUDM makes me smarter. Thank you for your creativity and delivery.
I absolutely love this app! Full of great content and wonderful narration. This app is everything!
Seriously, the content is vast. Would cancel a bunch of other services before I canceled Audm
I recommend this to every friend. It’s changed the way our family “reads” and brought dozens of ideas into our daily conversations. Really, cannot recommend it enough.
Great long-form journalism is still out there. This app makes it easy to find and convenient to keep up with. The developers are quick to correct glitches that arise as updates are released to keep pace with new OS releases. The subscription cost is more than worth it.
I absolutely love this app. I have for years been reading audiobooks, and I always wished that there was a way I could have articles read to me. I found Audm through the Atlantic podcast and I’ve never looked back. I listen to their articles from many many different publications and it is great for the car for plane flights and for all the time. Informative articles and fun articles and all different kinds of articles. It’s great!
I subscribe to several magazines that are included with this app. I find that I am accessy more of the important messages included in the articles by listening vs reading. Both types of “reading“ have advantages, but I really appreciate the capacity to hear an article as well as read it the old-fashioned way. Actually, I am more likely to listen to an article then to “read” the text. I appreciate the quality of the narrators for articles that this app offers.
If, like me, you aspire to read more long-form journalism than you actually do, then this is the app for you. It is a fantastic way to experience some of the best writing produced anywhere while also staying connected to issues of import artists the country and around the world. The narrators are excellent and varied. I’ve replaced many Podcats with Audm and feel better for it. I highly recommend it.
