Good to be able to have articles from my Substack subscriptions read aloud to me, but I can't stand that EVERY encounter with quotation marks says "end quote," both before & after the quote. This makes the listening experience very confusing, & there are no settings available to adjust it, and NO WAY to reach or request any kind of tech support. There is only a limited list of FAQs, none of which touch on this. Also, there's only a play/pause button in the app, & no back button or progress bar.

1. Tried to listen to a podcast and turned off the screen. Tried to get back to a REALLY laggy and buggy phone with a podcast I couldnt shut up. After 3 minutes of nonstop lag that would not even show my lockscreen properly I had to restart the phone. Not good. 2. Where is the writer part of the app? Is there even one? No other complaints. Hope it stays that way.

Well designed with a sleek minimal look, and has very few bugs as far as I've seen. I would like it if they added more options to the highlight context menu (i.e., the menu that appears when you highlight text). Currently, the only option is "Copy," but it would be very helpful if they added a "Web Search" option so that users can easily highlight and look up things from articles without having to leave the app to look up the term.
