Excellent app, but with a feature request

Fantastic app and stories - very refreshing in a world of algorithmic timelines and influencers. However, I would really love if it were integrated into the standard iPhone media player - so it can be played/paused from the lock screen, controlled via headphones, etc. I’m sure there’s plenty of new stuff in the pipeline; and to me this seems like it should be one of the priorities, especially since audio is such a major component.

Hi there, the feature you asked for has been Alexander now since January. We hope this is enhancing your experience with the app and we will continue to make improvements. Thanks.

The app I’m never deleting

I’ve deleted most apps from my phone to avoid wasting hours on things that don’t really enrich my life in the end. Alexander though, is a keeper. For me, it’s the only world I can enter from my phone, where I feel richer post experience. I learn something new and also learn about myself. It offers something for all my moods both in user experience - being able to switch from audio to reading to video however I please - and in content. There’s a great library with mixed topics that make you relate or reflect or even upset - which stimulates my brain. Most of all, I love the quality. Amazing writing, talented and experienced actors delivering the audio and the little trailers are like a mini movie experience. It encompasses everything one could ask for in storytelling and it’s done RIGHT. It’s an app I’m actually happy to subscribe to and support in its growth. I look forward to what will be released. Highly recommend.

Thank you for the glowing review. We really appreciate it.

My go-to audiobook app !

Intriguing books read by intriguing artists, and even under an hour long for those under time constraints, such as ‘Passion of Faraj S.’ about an Iranian journalist resonating themes such as Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot,’ if looked in depth, or Ionesco's ‘The Lesson.’

Or.. ‘Where we come from , where we’re going’ a delicate book about artists living in a delicate part of the world , read delicately by David Oyelowo!

These are just to name a few; I encourage everyone to explore the books on Alexander and raise your awareness.

Thanks, Leo. This is so great to read.
