Reviews

Objective, Well Written, Informative

5
The Economist continues to provide informative and positive writing on the state of the world economy as it relates to science and technology, health, education, the environment, social policy, travel, tourism, and more. Helps keep me up to date in current events in a thought provoking way.

Economist won’t let me cancel my auto renew subscription

1
The economist is the worst. I just bought a year long subscription and it auto renews for a higher price and it won’t let me stop the auto renew!

New App is worse

2
Miss being able to easily select the audio articles I want. Have in the order of the magazine. App is major step backwards.

Missing a few features

3
I enjoy the range of topics covered in The Economist’s journalism, and the app is quite usable, but it would greatly benefit from a few extra features: - Cross-device synchronization of the read indicator. It’s great to see at a glance whether I’ve already read an article, but it only works if I happened to read the article on the same device. I like to read on both my iPad and my phone. - A dark theme with lower contrast. The best implementations of “dark mode” in apps use color palettes that are easier on the eyes than the sheer white-on-black here (see Duolingo, for example). - Page-flipping as an alternative to scrolling, a la Books or Kindle. A tap every so often is easier than constant swiping across the screen. Otherwise, I’m looking forward to my continued enjoyment of the magazine.

The Economist App

Content is excellent, although creeping towards “government is the solution.” Customer service has fallen way off. No means to get tech support for digital problems or suggest improvement (e.g., no longer can create playlist for articles in audio edition as we could for years heretofore).

Slow and buggy

1
One of the slowest and buggiest apps I’ve ever used. Why does it take minutes to start playing an audio clip when it’s already downloaded to flash memory? Why does it quit when playing for more than 10 minutes? This app needs a ground-up native rewrite.

Great subjects and coverage

I am teaching a high school economics class and The Economist is always used as a reference in my lectures. I love that is takes a world view and is not biased

App has come a long way but some need for improvement remains

4
The app used to be atrocious. I mean, it basically worked, and it was better than nothing, but it was a really poor user experience. They’ve since cleaned it up, fixed some bugs causing it to crash, and recently introduced some new UI features. But there are a couple things I would like to see. #1, if you see an economist ad on Facebook and click the link, it’ll not take you to the app. Instead you have to click the “open in browser” button. Even then it locks it behind a paywall when I have the app installed and I am logged in. Any other app (especially social media apps) give you a banner to “open in app”. I don’t want to log into the mobile site to access an article. There’s also a bug I’ve been getting where I open an article and the text is all glitched out - there’s maybe a word or two on the page and then nothing below that. One last thing, it’s mainly quality of life: Sometimes I’ll have already read an article, and then I get a push notification suggesting I read the article. Perhaps you could keep track of whether I’ve read an article before pushing out that notification? One last thing, and again it’s quality of life: it would be nice to be able to manage my subscription in-app. Most of these are smaller points, and the app has come a long way. Kudos to the developers.
