App Reviews

  • Audio feature broken

    By The cool Isaac
    Used this app years ago and it worked perfectly. Just resubscribed and it’s pretty much garbage. Not sure why they decided to make it unusable. Specifics: Playing/pausing audio doesn’t work. I have to close and reopen app regularly because it won’t play audio. This also applies to taking out AirPods—which auto-pauses audio. App is slow. Slowest user interface I’ve ever seen in an app. Tapping, swiping, opening, etc all seems to have a second or do delay. App must be using some tricky coding to get such consistent results. Also speed button is invisible. Makes for a cool Easter egg tho. Please fix your app. I love The Economist audio edition, but this app makes it easier to pirate the audio and play through another media player.
  • Great weekly news magazine. Well written and researched.

    By jad44econ
    App gives handy access before print version is available. Screen is not so well used on iPad though (4 stars vs 5). Fonts too big or lots of blank screen space. Would be nice if better laid out.
  • Great

    By Nyusha1234
    The magazine is great and the app is well made. Totally worth the money every year.
  • No iPhone X Support

    Starting to get frustrating now.
  • Needs an update

    By Nordanstock
    The current issue I’m reading deletes itself every time I close the app, so every time I open the app the issue has to be re-downloaded. This is very frustrating and annoying. Please fix this bug.
  • The issue deletes itself when you close app

    By Halcyon_Ways
    Need to redownload issue(s) every time I open app.
  • Best way to keep up

    By Jlssr
    The economist gives me a look at what is going on all around the world. I enjoy getting a perspective from the other side of the pond
  • Easy to use - love the audio version

    By JackyJavelin
    Without the audio version, I never would have the chance to read so much of the Economist! No more of just the “The World in _____”
  • Awesome

    By Bonhoeffer3
    Love this app. They really thought through the user experience and made consuming news fun and informative.
  • Not neutral

    By Trec99
    I find some of the articles to be very one sided and not neutral is it should be. Especially when it is regarding the Middle East. How come you never mention that casualties on the Israeli side?
