  • Great content, horrible app

    By Ted Gibbons
    I love the content, but this app is unstable and unresponsive, and I found their billing department defensive and dismissive. It’s also been the better part of a year since they removed the ability to replay audio at 1.5-2x speed. I read a lot for work, so I do most of my pleasure “reading” with my ears during my commute, but I can’t remember the last time I was able to comfortably finish an issue.
  • One of the worlds best written magazines

    By BioFXEL
    The Economist wears its 19th century liberal world view on its sleeve, but covers with magnificent objectivity all the nooks and crannies of our complex world. And it so in wonderfully stylish and readable prose.
  • Sepia read mode

    By Smartreviews
    I love the economist as well as the app. I wonder if it would be too much to ask to add a sepia read mode. I really enjoy that mode. Or if anyone knows of a trick to do that, please let me know. Thank you.

    Update the app!!
  • Enjoy no drama in your reporting

    By Mike P67
    I enjoying reading and also listening to your articles. Less drama than other magazines and newspapers with just the facts. Also enjoying the 1843 magazine, which I was not aware of until it was mailed to me.
  • 5-star content, 4-star app

    By Malcompliant
    The app should be better! It does a disservice to the very high quality of the content, especially the audio. Two improvements I’d like to see: (1) Have a move back 15 seconds button on the audio. This is common in other apps containing spoken audio, such as Audible. (2) The “download all” button for the audio should be smarter on slow mobile connections. For example, instead of starting downloading all audio articles simultaneously, it should start with the first few at a time. That way, we can start listening to the first sections while it’s still downloading the test.
  • Could be better

    By Potato
    Improving but still has issues. Why can’t the app remember the font size? Always resets to the smallest. One of a few small things.
  • Fantastic!!!

    By Rap Genius 4 Life
    Great app! One thing that could be added would be a built-in browsers for the blogs! <--- they know exactly what they need
