The gold standard in news

The Economist is the publication to which I turn first for hard news and factual information. The only two things in this world I find believable are The Economist and The Wall Street Journal. They know the difference between propagandized opinion and hard, factual news. They both represent the gold standard in truthful news.

UI is freakish

I have been reading Economics for over a decade, as they have 5star journalists. Minus three stars for UI which is very slow and ugly. I would prefer to have an option just to download the magazine as it is printed - the way we had in Overdrive before.

One improvement

I literally never write reviews. But this app and content is amazing and just genuinely well written and informative. The only reason I am writing this (and I know it is a pedantic request) is because I would like a feature added. The economist Instagram page has a link in the bio that you can click and has an integration between the posts and the app. Why not just add this into the app? The search feature works but you have to know exactly what you’re looking for. Scrolling through 100s of articles is tedious. The weekly edition is the best content and well organized. But why not just add a feature that lets you scroll through the articles in a more consummatory manner. I know it’s probably the dopamine addicted phone user in me talking but the economist page on Instagram seems like a great feature to allow users to browse the selection of media easily. I hope they add this.

Any chance for Ad Free podcasts?

Love the economist app, but is there any chance we can get ad free podcasts for subscribers? Thanks!

App is broken

I’m a long time subscriber. Recently I started the app only to find I’ve lost access to my account. A “restore subscription” fails as well. When I reach out to support, they provide instructions that do not correspond to what I see on screen. They keep on referring to a “legacy app” which is not what I see so it appears we are talking at cross purposes. My app appears to be an updated app. When I go to the AppStore, I see no reference to a legacy app. When I log on to the website directly, I am informed I have no subscription. I have an annual subscription that expires Aug 2023. I have already submitted said receipt to support. This issue is nearly 2 weeks old. I’m at a loss what to do.

Best magazine

The Economist is a source of global information in a class by itself. Excellent writing, in-depth coverage.

Excellent is The Economist

Excellence is hard to come by in the world. The Economist dares to challenge the mediocrity of the media by embracing everything we’ve been told that journalism has been lacking. Fundamentally, and most frequently, we are told that a good journalist is one who is objective. Nonsense. A good journalist is one who attempts to be objective whilst being honest about their biases. And, ask yourself, how many publications currently state their outright objectives? I can only think of fringe radicals and insignificant talking heads. Those voices, indeed, and The Economist, the latter of which is as transparent as it gets. It is the gold standard of international affairs and reporting. For that reason, and many more, I think I’ll keep reading!

Does not allow me to cancel subscription

This is ridiculous, i tried to cancel the subscription via live chat but th agents just spamed me with offers and terminated the chat without actually cancelling the subscription. Is this even legal? How can the Economist maginze allow things like this to happen to its customers?

Great journalism, shoddy connectivity

Not sure what’s up with this app but about 1/4 of the time I use it, I get a notification saying there is no internet connection. Everything else works when this comes up so it isn’t my phone or connection.

Good app. Idea for improvement.

Please add a “history” tab in bookmarks. Then keep a record of recently your viewed stories in there. Often there are stories I am reading off/on throughout the course of the day. I don’t want to bookmark them, rather just pick up where I left off. Also, please add the ability for the app to remember where in the article you were at last time you put the app down. Other magazines such as the New Yorker have this capability in their app.
