App Reviews

  • Economist

    By londonbatley
    Very good. The deep dives are excellent. As a weekly EACH article MUST give more than I can get from the daily papers. I would like to see more forward looking macro financial analysis.
  • Can't stand losing where I was

    By neilschmeil
    After the new update the app doesn't save what article you were reading or where you were in the article. Each time you open the app it starts over at the beginning, so you lose your place.
  • No ability to speed up playback?

    By Yrmhm
    The most important feature of the app for me is the ability to speed up playback. I guess they had audio quality issues, so...they just removed the feature completely? I feel like I'm stuck on the highway going half the speed limit now. No answers to my email asking when this will be fixed. I'm planning on canceling my subscription soon if they can't at least update us on the plan... The old app worked fine...I wish I could go back to it. Why not release it as a "classic" version of the app?
  • Audio playback changes

    By Eripsni
    1 star until playback speed options return - this app has turned into a mess - the old one worked so much better!
  • Horrible audio

    By poelss1
    I used to listen at 2x. Now that feature is gone. I'm no longer listening and will likely unsubscribe if this feature is not fixed.
  • What have you done??

    By attn please!
    Why did you take away the ability to listen to audio at faster speeds? I have been listening for years at 1.5. I can't concentrate on the articles at 1x. Please fix asap!!!
  • Great app and content

    By Parker.676
    Great content and the app is pretty good too. I miss being able to navigate to specific sections, but it’s not a deal breaker.
  • App stopped working

    By Honest Jack
    I was not a huge fan of the new layout but now I can’t even download the new issue after the most recent update. You had a good product, stop ruining it.
  • Love the idea, hate the execution

    By makarka
    I love the Economist. And with its ability to listen to the audio version of articles the app is the best! That's just the idea though. In reality it took Economist years to get application to a stable state where everything worked, but somehow they weren't content with it so they released a completely rebuilt app which makes me want to cry every time I use it. Here is just a few issues with the new version: 1. They removed ability to control the speed of audio, so I am now forced to listen to it at excruciatingly slow pace. I am also now not able to finish an issue in a week because it takes 1.5 times longer to listen to 2. Every other time I open the app it forgets the place where I was last time and I have to search through the issue to find an article and the place where I left things off 3. It also doesn't have a visual indicator in the article list of which article I am listening to 4. I listen to Economist while driving in my car. After the latest release I intermittently lose sound at the end of each article and need to re-dock my iPhone to continue listening. This was never an issue with the old version Please fix this or just admit the fiasco and revert to the old version. I am desperate to love you again!
  • Good Stuff

    By Yeah mybe I'm drunkkk
    I get a lot of my in depth news from this newspaper. Even though they may have some liberal views, they explain their viewpoints clearly and thoughtfully.
