  • Great analysis, frustrating app

    By emcon09
    If, when scrolling an article, you happen to begin scrolling with your finger on a link, it will open the link instead of initiating a scroll. A silly but frustrating bug that seriously detracts from the experience of using this app. Please fix it. It has been months. Please???
  • Great! But

    By KurtT78
    The app is sleek and well-designed the only reason I am writing a review is to ask that developers fix access to images in articles. Scrolling through an article, I will accidentally click on a graph/ comic and then it will switch to the economist image header. Opening the images should be less glitchy overall and not as difficult to avoid opening when reading an article. I also wish the graphics were higher quality.

  • Audio features have gone away :(

    By JerseyBartender
    The old audio version was excellent. In the current version it is impossible to download specific articles and they often don't play when not connected to internet. (Then why have the option to download?) This makes it entirely useless when trying to listen to specific articles on a plane, for example. So bad that I will consider cancelling my subscription.
  • Nice app. Good articles

    By (TK9)$&@
    I am enjoying the content. One question though. How do you search for a topic on the app?
  • Feature Request: Bug Reports

    By onemcos
    The app is good, with minor bugs popping up every once in a while. A good solution? In app bug reporting. On the settings tab add a bug report screen that lets users submit screenshots/comments on the bug. Otherwise, I’m googling and trying to figure out how to submit a bug and giving up and just letting it be.
  • Daily espresso doesn’t work very well

    By zxxxxxxxxxxcxy
    It seems the daily espresso disappears sometimes. Please fix it
  • An ok app

    By Yigit Ihlamur
    - while scrolling images pops up. - doesnt work at the moment. Just a blank page.
  • Brilliant but unsharable

    By Golux
    Very good UI, greatly enhanced with an excellent downloadable audio version. Meticulously researched. Very cogent content-albeit a bit obsessed with irs own cleverness. Deserves 5 stars EXCEPT— The Economist has elected to disable sharing—a major flaw for a relatively costly weekly newspaper.
  • The best news magazine out there

    By aimlesspoet
    The Economist is always full of in-depth, insightful journalism, with minimal bias. It’s an education in a magazine. Read it!
