I love listening to Audm content, but often when I try to listen it just buffers endlessly and doesn’t play. I end up listening to something else outside of Audm. It has happened on and off for over a year and doesn’t happen with any other audio apps on my phone.
Audm is such an awful app. I thought I would love it but the readers are awful. The readers all have the most irritating style. I just attended a dinner party. 12 of us. We all talking about how challenging it is to listen to the readers. Not a single person like the readers. They have a fake, rhythmic quality. The women’s voice and unrealistically low and breathy. So aggravating. I don’t know what the NYTimes was thinking!
I enjoy the articles and voices but the app is extremely glitchy. Additionally, I want a better way to “save” or bookmark stories other than putting them in a queue to listen to next.
I thoroughly appreciate having access to the range of content through Audm. Long reads. Short reads. Superb readers. One cannot gone wrong for $5 per month.
Eg if you delete one item in the queue it instead deletes another. That bug is still there after 6+ months.
If you want interesting topics written by excellent writers and delivered by a professional readers for maximum impact, this is your app.
Easy to use. Excellent content. Engaging voices. Good pacing. Incredible value. If you are a person who often looks longingly after articles shared on Twitter that exist behind paywalls that you either can’t afford to pass or know you won’t have time to make it worth it if you did choose to subscribe, then this is absolutely for you. I’ll be honest, if you don’t actively want to read more excellent articles, I am not sure it will create this desire for you, but if you have any inclination towards excellent journalism- I recommend this so much.
I can’t get access to the articles because the app only lets me see what’s trending. WTAF? I don’t understand why such a great concept has been so miserably deployed.
When I started using this app a couple of years ago it was fantastic, but somewhere along the way it started failing. The queue and history no longer function, nor do the “play next” or “remove from playlist” functions. I don’t think I’ll renew my subscription if they don’t work out these bugs in an update very soon.
