Brilliant app!

Where has this app been all my life? Heard of it from a friend, and I’ve been thrilled with it so far! I’m a stay-at-home mom (read: toddler wrangler), and this app is easy to use and great to listen to while I’m tidying house and chauffeuring said toddler to various classes/ appointments. I love that I’m able to personalize the recommendations according to my interests, and have been pleased to find various articles across publications that I’ve flagged for future reading, but struggled to return to given life’s demands. Overall, a fantastic addition to my daily grind. Highly recommended!

A great addition to everyday habits

Got a recommendation to this app 2 weeks ago and so far so good. Articles in an audio form from various sources and in different topics. I am using it during my commute to work and back and it helped me catch up on a-lot of articles and topics i usually save for later read and never do. The app makes things simpler but doesnt skimp on quality or design. Its a great addition to my daily habits.

I’ve always wanted to be that person who listens to podcasts or audiobooks during my morning commute. After nearly 5 years in NYC, I thought I was doomed until I found Spokn! There is always tons of content and gives me fun topics to bring up in the office, clients, friends, and family. Thank you for making this app and keep on rolling the good Stories in here!
