Reviews

What a ripoff. Shameful.

1
I’ve been a subscriber of The Economist for more than a decade. I recently renewed my subscription in the new iPad app, and discovered that I can no longer access The Economist content on the Web or on Android devices. This has always been possible: I subscribe to “The Economist”, not “The Economist on iOS devices only”. When I renewed, there was no disclaimer, no warning, not indication whatsoever that I will only be able to access my subscription on iOS devices. Is this a ploy to double-charge your subscribers, trying to get readers to pay for the same content separately on iOS and Android? Or just incompetence? Either way, this brings shame to the legacy of The Economist.

Audio feature needs help

3
I use this app primarily for the audio feature. I listen on my commute to/from work. When the audio works, it’s great, but this feature is pretty buggy, and now, it seems to have completely stopped. Please fix ASAP! I crave my daily Economist fix!

Please fix the audio X button

1
Audio is my most used feature on the iphone app. When you want to go out of the audio menu while playing audio, the X at the left top corner does not respond in iphone xs max all the time. I have to keep tapping at it. I have the latest iOS.

Terrible application

Amazing content but horrible app. It doesn’t let me pause or fast forward and sometimes prevents me from accessing its audio files.

awkward giant fonts can’t be shrunk

2
The smallest font setting is way too large. Unreadable on the iPad Pro, and awkward on the iPhone XS. These giant fonts have been an issue since the 2017 update. When will it be fixed? Just allow the fonts to be adjusted to a size that is standard on all other apps, eg Kindle, NY times.

Great content but terrible app

2
The Economist audio app should be much better. If anything, it seems to have worsened over time. It used to allow to play just a selected playlist. Now that option is no longer available. Second, if I stopped listening to a story mid-way, next time I opened the app, it would pick it up where I left. That’s no longer possible so I have to start from the beginning. This is very unpractical if you are using the app while driving during your commute.

Audio is buggy as hell

3
I love the Economist and have been reading it, whether with my eyes or ears, for years. I’ve gravitated toward the audio version recently but have had consistent issues with it actually playing the audio. Today, 16 Feb 2019, I’m trying to play the completely downloaded (as opposed to streamed) audio for the most recent issue. While some sections play, others, including The Workd This Week and Leaders refuse to play. If I can’t access the content, I can’t be happy with the app. In addition, the developers need a more informative (e.g. indicate which sections have been read) and intuitive interface. I just don’t get the flow.

The audio does not work anymore

I tap on the audio playback and nothing happens. I even tried downloading the entire audio and it still does not work. Please fix.
