Reviews

Content: 5 ⭐️, App: 1 ⭐️

3
The content needs no review. But the app is a mess. Audio skips around and forgets my place. Buttons don’t work often. Interfacing with headphone control buttons not reliable. Design language not great. Probably the worst app that I pay money for.

I enjoy that each story in Weekly edition is read aloud.

5
Very global in scope. Sources used in articles are carefully chosen and provide a quality and depth to the subject I value as a reader. I look forward to exercising more, because I can listen to articles.

Great but improve audio

I love the economist content. Please improve audio quality so I can listen at a faster speed. Then I’ll change to 5 stars!

Great app but one request

5
This is a great app. Easy to use and many improvements made. I wish it supported CarPlay. I’d like to be able to use the audio versions of the stories easily in the car.

Ok App. Extremely Poor Privacy and Customer Service

1
Good app content. Difficult to navigate and search and manage content. Poor privacy - collects too much personal data and sells it. Stop collecting and give customer choice to share. Customer service is very poor - have to call all the time to get any service. Need web services

Great but…

4
Please eliminate the in-article advertisements, especially for subscribers. I am continually being linked to my browser app because I accidentally hit the ad while scrolling. Or at least make it less easy to hit the ads while scrolling down on an article

Buggy

2
The content is good but the app itself is very buggy, with the same bugs for years and new ones being introduced. The playback speed changing sounds unlistenable. You can’t highlight more than a paragraph. It gets confused which article it’s playing. Switching orientation causes it to offset the current article off the screen.

Playback Problems

2
Even after downloading the Weekly audio file I get playback error messages that my device isn’t connected to the internet during offline playback. The app also regularly confuses the “play” and “pause” buttons.

No

Although when purchasing through iTunes you are prompted to input log in credentials and it clearly states that these can be used to log in to The Economist on any device, when I attempt to log in it says I do not have a subscription. I tried calling and the “digital” support team claims the exact opposite. They say iTunes purchases cannot be used to log in on, say, my computer’s browser. I’m not sure who is correct but it’s frustrating and I will not be renewing my subscription if it’s not resolved by my renewal date.
