Reviews

Audio features have gone away :(

1
The old audio version was excellent. In the current version it is impossible to download specific articles and they often don't play when not connected to internet. (Then why have the option to download?) This makes it entirely useless when trying to listen to specific articles on a plane, for example. So bad that I will consider cancelling my subscription.

Nice app. Good articles

I am enjoying the content. One question though. How do you search for a topic on the app?

Feature Request: Bug Reports

4
The app is good, with minor bugs popping up every once in a while. A good solution? In app bug reporting. On the settings tab add a bug report screen that lets users submit screenshots/comments on the bug. Otherwise, I’m googling and trying to figure out how to submit a bug and giving up and just letting it be.

An ok app

Brilliant but unsharable

4
Very good UI, greatly enhanced with an excellent downloadable audio version. Meticulously researched. Very cogent content-albeit a bit obsessed with irs own cleverness. Deserves 5 stars EXCEPT— The Economist has elected to disable sharing—a major flaw for a relatively costly weekly newspaper.

The best news magazine out there

The Economist is always full of in-depth, insightful journalism, with minimal bias. It’s an education in a magazine. Read it!

Read or not is very buggy

2
This has long been one of my favorite apps. It’s recently taken a big step backwards with a feature that was released before it was ready. The app now has a “Continue reading” notification when you return that’s designed to take you back to your last article. Unfortunately, it isn’t smart about whether you finished your last article, so it’s essentially “Here’s what you were reading last” which isn’t helpful at all. An even more basic bug is if the last screen you were on was the quote at the end of the morning briefing, it will actually suggest you “continue reading” that brief sentence. Related, articles gain a check mark when you complete them. That feature is similarly flawed as just viewing an article and bookmarking it without any scrolling will add the check mark. FWIW, I have no interest in the Continue Reading feature even if it worked correctly and wish it was optional. I was sure to contact support about these issues first, but haven’t seen them addressed yet.

Great app, please fix links!

5
Something changed that makes links far too easy to accidentally click (to other articles and photos) when scrolling through an article. Possibly something with the way taps are detected?

Constant pop-ups

3
When reading articles in the app, graphs and pictures accompanying the articles pop up and take over your screen. This doesn’t happen just once, but each time you scroll near an image. So you might be shown the same graph or picture 5 or 6 times as you try to read the article, making the process nearly intolerable. They need to fix this.
