App Reviews

  • Great content but terrible app

    By Marcela Grld
    The Economist audio app should be much better. If anything, it seems to have worsened over time. It used to allow to play just a selected playlist. Now that option is no longer available. Second, if I stopped listening to a story mid-way, next time I opened the app, it would pick it up where I left. That’s no longer possible so I have to start from the beginning. This is very unpractical if you are using the app while driving during your commute.
  • One feedback

    By Asianblackhairgirl
    Marking one the texts!!! Really Like highlighters!! When i read this magazine on my iphone i often get lost!!
  • Audio is buggy as hell

    By msb64
    I love the Economist and have been reading it, whether with my eyes or ears, for years. I’ve gravitated toward the audio version recently but have had consistent issues with it actually playing the audio. Today, 16 Feb 2019, I’m trying to play the completely downloaded (as opposed to streamed) audio for the most recent issue. While some sections play, others, including The Workd This Week and Leaders refuse to play. If I can’t access the content, I can’t be happy with the app. In addition, the developers need a more informative (e.g. indicate which sections have been read) and intuitive interface. I just don’t get the flow.
  • The audio does not work anymore

    By Brad Mild
    I tap on the audio playback and nothing happens. I even tried downloading the entire audio and it still does not work. Please fix.
  • Lost x1.25 audio speed

    By Annoyed76761
    Great app but please bring back the x1.25 audio speed, lost in the last update. Thanks
  • More Granular Audio Speed Control

    By Señor Rios
    The writing and UI remains outstanding. I agree with reviewers who ask for more granular control over the audio player’s speed. Increments of .25 would be a huge improvement.
  • Does not work with

    By SoyJustin18
    I signed up for the introductory subscription. Unfortunately, the subscription does not carry over to their website, which means I cannot read articles on anything but my I-phone...
  • good content, bad UI design

    By FreshCliche
    The lastest version is not compatible with iPhone XR - the name of every section (Leaders, Letters, ...) is only half visible. Please fix it as soon as possible.
  • Terrible Account Management

    By hdjshdjdjdjjd
    What a frustrating experience. I bought on my phone using iTunes. I can’t get access on my tablet no matter what I do. Apple doesn’t provide support. I asked for help from the economist and they sent me an email describing a multi-step process that is different from the choices that are even available. I asked them to refund my money, but that got no response. I’d love to read the magazine, but it’s not worth this hassle.
  • No audio since update

    By CrisAntibo
    Since I recently updated the App for iPhone, the audio does no work. Help! Otherwise, I love the App.
