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.
The app could improve in the following areas: 1. Where did the market data go? 2. Allow audio playback like the actual app. Don't know why they didn't include that in this.
I really liked this app, but over the past few months, the daily notifications have been glitching. I just don’t get them anymore. It really ruins the experience.
Ilove my espresso every morning. So disappointed cocoa isn’t available.
Very easy to read & comprehend even with bare minimum sleep.
Espressos seem to be published somewhere between 7 and 9 am EST, which is long past the time I’ve already gotta be at work.
To be able to simultaneously respect and also, sometimes, disagree with news reporting in an age of (fox) news-like entertainment feels settling. The Economist is my first read on most days.
It gives u a breve summary for the whole world.
Good daily news app. It if you leave it running it will drain your battery. Needs a fix for this
The Espresso delivers daily insights with the depth of the Economist but with succinctness needed for a daily brief. Will get to 5 stars if they remove the ads as it is a paid subscription.
