Lots of good writers and a p decent interface for reading! Update: recently running into a weird behavior where the anchor text for hyperlinks is truncated if it's more than a few words, with an ellipse at the end. Many of the writers I like cite quotes by making all or most of the text a link to the source, which makes this behavior very jarring. Wish this would not happen! Also, I appreciate having both Archive and Save functionality, but I wish the distinction was explained somewhere.

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.

Awful experience. Videos don't have full screen mode. If you are watching a video and scroll down to see text, the video will stop! Not paused, but stopped, so then you'd have to scroll back up to the video and use progress slider to find the part where it stopped to continue watching.
