As unbiased as I can find

5
I’m grateful for some unbiased reporting. It’s hard to find these days as politics bring emotions to the edge. I also completely enjoy being able to get the news read to me while I am driving to work! I am able to keep up while wisely spending my drive time.

Great app, but it doesn’t keep me logged in. Pretty tedious.

Great news. User-hostile App

The economists audio app has never been very good, but the new version that came out a few months ago is truly abysmal. Navigating the audio stories is much worse than it was before. The new version: - Requires that the reader find the story in the written version in order to select it for listening which is very cumbersome. - Frequently loses its place rather than keeping track of the most recent story listened to. - Frequently switches to today’s latest story, rather than picking up from where the listener left off. - Fails to work well with either AirPlay or the Sonos app. - Frequently stops playing downloaded content if the app loses connection to the Internet, which makes listening to downloaded content very frustrating if traveling in and out of cellular coverage or on an airplane. When this happens, the app simply stops and gives a message saying “something went wrong”. When I discovered all of these usability challenges, I noticed that there was a “classic“version of the app available. I deleted the new app and downloaded the classic, only to find that the classic still had the new audio interface. When I wrote to the app support team for help with this I was simply told that they recommended that I use the new app. When I was asked for feedback on that customer service interaction, I wrote that it had been terrible and gave reasons why, to which I received no reply whatsoever. I have been a loyal subscriber for many years and will probably continue to suffer through using this app, even with all of its failures. However, it has substantially degraded my respect for The Economist as a customer service organization.

Make audio work?

4
And make it tablet friendly
By Eric E Britt

Top notch content but a few control options would be nice

5
The Economist has content second to none and it is fairly easy to access with the well-designed app. I particularly enjoy the audio content. I only wish there were slightly better options for playback. At top of my list would be options to play back at speeds between 1.0 and 1.25. To my ear the best speed would be around 1.1 depending on the narrator. And this would save me 10% of time! Additionally it would be nice to list total time of an issue and total time remaining.

Great content, careless execution

3
10+ years user of this app and it’s predecessors and it’s been the same story with all: great content, buggy, careless execution. Images fail to download, state isn’t kept so you always have to navigate to where you left off, audio features great on paper but never work. Every release is marred by crazy and obvious bugs that suggest something is seriously wrong with their QA. Customer service excels at writing meaningless emails but is otherwise worthless. Bottom line is this app works more or less but, like a toddler, will always have you work for it. The iPad version has been useless ever since they moved to this “responsive” version years ago.
