The ads in this app shown to paid subscribers are getting out of hand. The content is great, but for the price of a subscription I expect an ad-free app.
Simple, straightforward app, delivers the weekly with insightful daily posts. I prefer it to the paper edition.
The Economist provides an invaluable perspective on global events. Although I’ve been a subscriber for the past 30 years, gaining access digitally has become possible only recently. I appreciate being able to read it this way—at my convenience, at any time, wherever I am.
I can hardly ever find the content on the app that the Economists’ various Facebook and Twitter pages post. Impossible to engage/share in an easy fashion. Also, the app does not have a search functionality, so good luck finding any past article beyond the current week’s issue.
iPad audio no longer works
The Economist may be the last legitimate, global news source. Let us pray it does not fall victim to resting on its laurels and British hubris. Now more than ever its services are needed.
Great contents but why are there still ads when I paid for a subscription!?
The audio experience could be better if you could play audio at 1.1x, 1.2x, 1.3x, or 1.4x speeds. Currently, there’s a 1.0x and the next speed 1.5x which is already too fast. Please add that functionality.
The app is virtually impossible to use.
Please allow more fine-tuned speed adjustment, at least an option between 1 and 1.5x.
