Essential stuff

Espresso, aptly named, is the quick, everyday fix of news and analysis that distills all Economist content down into quick bites. This is quality, essential stuff. You need it!

Quick overview of world events

Good read. I like the quote of the day and reading the winners of the barista quiz.

Essential briefing

Easy to digest with the morning cup.

Simple layout & brief articles

I wasn’t getting through the whole newspaper every week, so this is a perfect alternative.

Left Bias and Anti - American

Has a strong left bias and often anti-American sentiment. It has good economic news but you have to sort it out of their leftist propaganda. I was hoping that a paid service like this one would give unbiased news. Sadly it’s just another propaganda machine.

Sometimes there are bugs. Overall great

Sometimes a podcast won’t play or the regular espresso is yesterdays espresso. Sometimes the espresso just won’t play at all. But I’m general this app is great. Get all your daily news in audio format if you like and then if it is not enough, there is a thirty minute intelligence podcast to listen to that is pretty good that they put out every weekday. I listen to this while I brush my teeth in the morning.

No go

App wouldn’t get beyond “what you’ll get” page which wouldn’t scroll. So basically, a nothing app. Zero content. No access. attempting to contact support, no, nothing there that will help. It just doesn’t work from the getgo, so restarting etc is pointless.

Prior Days Espresso?

Could you bring back the ability to see the Espresso content for prior days in the week (not just the day of)?
