Why You Should Download the Substack App to Read My Columns
If you enjoy reading my weekly columns on michaeldimarco.com, you might be wondering if there is a better way to access them than through your email inbox. Well, I have some good news for you: there is! It's called the Substack app, and it's available for both iOS and Android devices. In this post, I'll tell you why you should download the Substack app and how it will enhance your reading experience.
What is the Substack app?
The Substack app is a dedicated reader for all your Substack subscriptions. It brings all your favorite writers together in one place, without any ads, noise, or spam. You can read posts in a simple and elegant view, discover new writers on Substack, and enjoy podcasts, videos, and community features that make your inbox even richer.
What are the benefits of using the Substack app?
Here are some of the benefits of using the Substack app to read my columns:
Instant notifications: You'll never miss a new post from me or any other writer you follow. The app will notify you as soon as a new post is published, so you can read it right away or save it for later.
Audio readings: One of the coolest features of the Substack app is that you can listen to an audio reading of each column in the app, almost like a podcast episode. This is perfect for when you're driving, walking, or doing chores. You can also adjust the playback speed and skip ahead or back as you like. Now, it’s not my silky smooth voice, but it’s a quality text-to-speech reader that makes the free subscription to my columns even better!
Offline access: You don't need an internet connection to read posts in the app. The app will automatically download posts for offline access, so you can read them anytime, anywhere.
Easy navigation: You can easily switch between different writers and categories in the app. You can also search for posts by keywords, titles, or authors. The app also has a dark mode option for night-time reading.
Feedback and engagement: You can leave comments on posts and join community threads with other subscribers. You can also like and share posts with your friends and followers on social media.
