Well-written, unbiased, perfect example of what journalism should be.
I have subscribed to the Economist for some 40 years. It remains the gold standard of informed journalism and commentary.
My go to news source for informed articles that covers international, national, and regional issues. The app itself is user friendly with an easy to learn UI. The subscription price is steep but if the quality and non biased articles keep coming they may have snagged a long time subscriber. A big bonus is full audio narration for most of the articles which is a big win for people with a busy work schedule.
Logging in every time you want to read a story is a bit frustrating
The app is a great way to read the magazine with one major exception: it pretends to remember what you've read but then randomly erases it. It used to be this wasn't an issue. Recently, however, it happens regularly. This makes it hard to make sure I've read everything. Needs fixed.
Great coverage with a truly balanced approach.
Finally got it after months of failures
I am consistently impressed by the quality of journalists the Economist has. The articles are in depth and clearly well-researched. The app on the iPad is also user friendly compared to some other news apps. If you want great articles to stay informed, without the political spin, The Economist is the place for you.
A weekly summary of world news provided by a responsible and credible source is important to me. The Economist best delivers this best.
I really like the magazine. I really liked the old legacy app they no longer support. This app I hate. All I want is to read the magazine on line. This app takes forever to download a new issue with a 100Mbit/sec download speed. If you have an internet connection, it needs to be really solid, any glitch will drop you out of the article you are reading, even when the issue has been downloaded. So when in a marginal wifi location in my house, I have to disconnect wifi to read. This is just too much of a hassle to use, I will now only read the paper version.
