As a subscriber it is very discouraging to see ads on the main articles. It breaks up the flow of the articles and is very distracting. Weekly issues also don’t load very well and many of the articles have missing images and graphs, especially when the issue first comes out. Will be going back to the classic edition to avoid the ads and ensure more consistency in the articles loading properly.
There doesn’t seem to have a “memory feature” in Economist’s iPhone app. It remembers what I listened to last time, but it doesn’t bring me back to where I left off in reading. Can definitely improve. That said, it’s a very decent app. One can easily tell lots of resources are invested in it.
I am a news junkie. I subscribe to multiple sources, globally. The Economist is my most trusted, best written subscription. I read a lot of sources and return to the Economist to backstop and be the final verdict.
I really enjoy your new formate
Look forward to reading it It is pleasure to read what is going on the world good diverse reporting Thank you
It’s borderline impossible to find articles that aren’t in the most recent issue.
Is better than carrying the mag
I am signed out every time I go back on the app. Crazy annoying but otherwise solid app.

Love the economist but the app experience is sub par. They even dropped their watch app and have yet to replace it. Given the price of a subscription it is crazy they don’t have at least a watch app.
