App Reviews

  • Audio broken yet again

    By Jonathan M.C.
    After updates, bugs get added. Does anyone test before posting updates? The audio keeps failing with latest update, including not handling output change (speaker to headphones to bluetooth) especially when in background. Open Google Maps; audio pauses; open The Economist; can’t get it to continue play
  • Audio does not work

    By epd242
    The audio does not work consistently on my I8. Works for a bit and then i have to reinstall the app. Very frustrating.
  • One star for nagging

    By rdschouw
    Can we please stop asking to rate your app? People have 50 apps nagging them once a week to rate their app. It’s annoying.
  • Great content, buggy app

    By WillisTexas
    Several issues with the audio playlist functionality. I like to listen to the audio version during my commute, but don’t want every article, so I use the playlist functionality. Problem is the app will randomly remove downloaded editions, which deletes my playlist. Another issue is that following the most recent release, you can’t toggle between tracklist, which shows all the articles in the week’s edition, and your selected playlist. I have just started listening to Audible on my commute rather than dealing with the glitchy Economist App.
  • Lots of Recent Improvements

    By jhscha
    Greatly appreciate the recent improvement in the app, particularly the audio edition. On an iPhone, if an alarm goes off when listening to the audio edition, the app must be force-quit and re-launched to continue listening. The swipe ad is, perhaps by design, very easy to accidentally click. I unintentionally click the ad every other time I launch the app. Consider a slightly protruding iPhone case - it’s difficult to get your finger to the very edge of the screen. Feature request: Ability to see, when listening to the audio edition, where I am in the overall list. The app used to have this. Where did it go?
  • New edition, more problems

    By Rogibear1590
    Audio has stopped working reliably offline. Night reading only works intermittently.
  • Where else

    By Ljohiller
    This is it. Still. Thank you.
  • Solid improvements.

    By Basic Steve
    Economist, Thank you for improving your app. The audio version has definitely improved; I can now save my position in an article even after closing my app for many hours (previously unheard-of). The issues also don’t delete themselves when I restart my phone.
  • Gets worse every time

    By Mmmmmmmmyeahyeah
    I like this newspaper but the app gets worse with every update. Weird freezes, crashes, pictures that won't zoom, ads that don't load and lock the app, failed downloads, insistence on redownloading issues that have already been downloaded before you can open them again (has happened to me on a flight 😖), etc. Given the recent uptick in corrections and an app that gets worse with updates, I'm worried about the long term survival of this newspaper. They are losing their attention to detail.
  • Don't download

    By Will i am and Brittany b*tch
    First time user here - the app takes forever to download editions on wifi and data. I find it annoying I can't look through and read certain articles. It also loses your place when you log out. Read on a laptop or on the website if possible
