Will not open
For news readers seeking a global perspective, this app has excellent content. The layout is easy to read, and a widget is available to review top headlines at a glance. If there was a way to receive notifications for when the app was updated with unread stories, I would give it 5/5 stars. A good example of a news app with notifications is the Tech Top 10 by The Information.
Since last update it tells me six stories to read, but after looking at them all 6/6 it then says 6 read, one to go! No nice quote of the day. There is no 7th. Grrr.
Used to worked fine, but since last update months ago, it crashes or show a white screen every time I opened it. Tried to re-install the app, still having the same problems.
Every morning I review Espresso as my go-to news briefing. It includes a perfect distillate mix of global news developments to remain current and informed on recent events.
Seriously? No tablet mode?
The app said it would provide free 30 day trial but then ended up charging me. Deceitful practice.
This app has excellent content but seems to load that content only about 10% of the time for me. Disappointing, as I’m a long time Economist subscriber.
For about a week now the app will either crash or just display a white screen. Please fix.
I’ve always loved the Economist and have read the print version religiously for over thirty years. But their apps (and their subscriptions department) are truly terrible. This app will refresh only about 70% of the time. Every third day, good luck getting the news. It’s also the only app on my phone that regularly crashes. On my phone it looks fine, on my iPad it doesn’t expand to fill the whole screen (it’s “iPhone-sized” but in an iPad screen). The app won’t rotate from vertical to horizontal, even if Screen Aspect is unlocked. Finally, there are different versions floating around in the App Store, so you have to be careful about which one you are getting. My advice: stick to the print edition. (IF it ever shows up on the front doorstep, it’s a great read!)
