App Reviews

  • The economist app is great

    By Peter Weida
    The app allows for easy access to all the news available in the regular magazine. It’s fun and easy to use.
  • Amazing app for the visually impaired

    By The Real D E Fresh
    I HIGHLY recommend this app for anyone interested in global events and especially those visually impaired. The reading option features human speakers, not computer generated voices, and the large text option makes it easy to read or follow along while listening. Plus you get the iconoclastic news coverage The Economist readers revere and cherish.
  • Don't update!

    By Mmpietro
    The Economist gets 5 stars. But this app is buggy. In the latest update in the audio player playlist, text is superimposed on other text making it illegible. Once you go from "track list" to "playlist " you're there for good. No way to go back. This was not ready for release. I know you guys can do better. Update: there have now been at least two software updates without fixing or acknowledging this problem. What gives?
  • Incomplete

    By Scott639646
    I like the app as far as it goes, but it doesn’t give full access to the Economist site. It’s an inconvenience to have to use a pc for this.
  • Fixed

    By Fedesgs
    Thanks for fixing the night mode switching to normal mode. Now reading at night is a pleasure.
  • Bad app, bad company

    By Gordon Zhang
    All kinds of glitches and hard to navigate . Old media just can’t get it right. Plus, economist is making the unsubscription super hard on purpose. They are turning one click of a button into calls with long waiting time and customer service failing to do so. Good content but in deep need of change.
  • Keeps prompting me to buy an issue when I have already subscription

    By Dzhafar
    I used to love this app - and still use it on iPad. However, since recently - I am unable to view any issues on my iPhone X. I tried restoring my purchases, but still cannot do it. Do I really need to buy separate iPhone subscription ?? Very frustrated.
  • Best content. Worst technology.

    By RobertoStorio
    The Economist continues to follow it's business model for its digital edition - best content, but worst technology. Improved from the past but still lots of problems. The font size almost always reverts to default size when going from one article to another on iPad or iPhone. Also, if you don't do a perfect 180 degree swipe you'll go to the next article rather than go down or up. I just tried to read an article while petting my cat. Not possible. I kept going to the next article because my downward motion using only one hand wasn't straight enough. None of the downloading problems of the past, but still definitely the most technologically challenged app of all the news sites I use.
  • Okay, but could be better

    By Bhensarl
    App is buggy. Sometimes won’t play when app is in the background. Should have a slider to set the playback speed instead of only a few options (0.5, 1.0, 1.5). Often very slow to respond if it hasn’t been opened in a while. Such a great source of news should have a better quality app.
  • No audio unless the app is open!!!

    By Khgfcre
    Seriously? If this doesn't get fixed soon, I'm canceling my subscription. I'm a big fan of you guys and everything you do. Been using the app for years. But come on... Also, can you PLEASE add a sleep timer to the audio. Every other audio app I use has that function.
