GREAT IDEA, But Execution needs work
There is a lot of low hanging fruit that can be improved pretty quickly. This is the app/service have been waiting/looking for since 2015. I love that it exists, but they need to get their high speed playback a bit better at being intelligible at higher speeds.
Seems like it’s also hard to have content you want from specific publishers organized automatically.
App doesn’t respond well to the play/pause button on my headphones (plays, but won’t pause).
It seems hard to resume an article where you left off. I think there’s a way to do it, but it’s not as straightforward as it ought to be.
I worry some of the organizational issues are by design, as a way of trying to foster certain behavior from users. I hope this is not the case. Maybe there is a different explanation, but as of now it seems like this app was not designed super users like me, ie, the people most likely to use and pay for it.
Developer Response ,
Hi npalumbo58, thanks for your review. We're delighted to have a super user like you and are glad that you get so much use out of Noa. Thanks for all your feedback also, it is very helpful. We'll make sure that our developers look into the bugs that you have raised. We are currently testing different audio formats to improve playback at higher speeds, you can expect some improvements here in the near future. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us again if you have any further feedback for our editors or our developers, you can contact us at email@example.com.
I’ve been hearing NOA news clips on my Google Home for months and finally decided to try the app today. It’s a brilliant premise: this app gives easy audio access to tons of top journals like the New York Times, Bloomberg, Independent, The Wall Street Journal, etc.
If you’ve ever wanted more than the 30-second version of a story (or endless commentary on television), this app is perfect in that articles are sorted by topic, so you get to hear several perspectives on top-story issues such as China devaluing its currency.
Where the app lacks at times is in the delivery. The vast majority of the readers’ voices are quite pleasant, but on multiple occasions I’ve heard gross mispronunciations of words (i.e. acquiescence, respite) and names (i.e. Epstein) as though the readers didn’t take the time to learn the words they were saying.
I’m still on my free trial but am strongly considering switching to premium if for no other reason than to keep an amazing service like this around!
Needs Dark Mode
Very much needs dark mode, it hurts my eyes, it’s not like anyone has a CRT smartphone. Just use dark backgrounds please.
I love the speed adjustment.
The number of premium articles is very sparse.
Developer Response ,
Hi DanVT, thanks for your review! We're glad to hear that you're finding the speed adjuster useful. A dark mode is currently in the development pipelines, stay tuned. I'll pass your feedback regarding the premium articles on to Noa's Editorial Team. As more publishers are added to Noa we can provide more exclusive premium content. We recently added MIT Technology Review to the platform, I'd recommend checking them out! If you have any further feedback or suggestions, for our editors or developers, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
