  • Waking up aware

    By Joe Govoni
    No better way than this.
  • A great morning synopsis of global affairs

    By VinBonVin
    A convenient and concise summary of big stories to get a pulse on my day.
  • Worth every penny

    By Trex7799
    Great app. A great, abridged version of today’s news and finances. I’m especially fond of the economic insight. A must have for my daily routine.
  • Great Daily Snapshot

    By Diva 8-)
    I love this app! It is a great daily snapshot of news that just takes a few minutes to read. Always includes compelling photos as well.
  • Annoying, minor and easily solvable technical issue

    By PauloDTMT
    This app had one minor annoying issue, it won’t sync what is read across devices. I read it on my phone in the morning, but when I open my iPad in the evening the stories show as unread. This is a Minor issue, but perhaps working across multiple devices and having slight OCD are a combination more common in readers of The Economist than in the general population. Since this happens 6 days a week, it merits being fixed. Thank you.
  • Disappointing

    By bikerdan41
    The selection of short articles is very limited and the articles are not very informative and lack depth -they are very superficial. Not what I expected from the Economist whose magazine is noted for its depth of reportage. In addition it is quite unclear how to stop the automatic subscription renewal - $2.99 per month. To stop the auto payments you have to access itunes subscriptions from your Apple account under Settings - not an intuitive process. Beware!
  • Succinct

    By help rohingyas
    The succinct coverage that spans the globe is informative and VfT ie value for time!
  • Scam

    Can’t unsubscribe... been paying monthly for some I don’t use
  • When you want a quick look at the news of the day

    By bbwMex
    I read this first thing every morning. It’s a good gauge as to whether I want to read more in a full length newspaper and also useful when I’m short on time but want to briefly know the world news. I like that you can change the focus of the report to different parts of the world.
  • A Strangely Dull Daily CaseBook of Toll Tales, Boring Gossip & Gross Domestic Propaganda!

    By 1yreve3R💎⚜️💠
    Loads extremely slowly like a cheap red light Piccadilly tour trolley. Reads & looks like an ugly page 3 pinup with ominously unimportant captioned tales of common filth from the waning merchandising empire of pompously slavering imps scribbling this decaf NewsCafé drivel...laden with underwhelming short short commercial-riddled stories, even if they could be considered such, which offer little useful substance other than frequent intrusions from inexplicable Brazil tourism ad pop-ups! Worse than rotting remarks regarding any world economic trends plague this morose macroegonomic mill from a hostile host of neo-Luddite Lizzie Burns Engelites. Their stunted & abysmally truncated humorless ripostes fall fatty & flatly on the plain Little Britain skittishness at the moment. No solid reporting, details or any real work is displayed. Unlike other mature & neutral news sources, this app is slow, restrictive, overpriced , underpowered, and lacks the most necessary & fundamentally useful live stock ticker technical feeds, daily markets data, microeconomic business news, and strategic econometrics trend analysis. Replete with frequently strange & unusual freakingnomics snippets with alt-not-so-bright 4th world-of-the-weird odd-bin odd-job journalist sentiments, this inept attempt at an app falls far short of The Brexonomist’s requisite lowball standards. Download it at your impudence & imperilment to get your badge of daily dishonesty & unfair share of data disabuse from an ugly pack of unscientific OxBridge Brazil carnival carts filled with moldy-oldies, Bread & Circuses PURPLE BRICKS, snide low-brow disruptive disinformation, dirty data deeds done dirt cheap side of the Street, etc. FT is also running the same hunk of junk news bits & pieces, while the somewhat neutral Reuters Thompson is only a tad better. Bloomberg is definitely a complete source without wasting your energy, time & money for nothing, cheesewhiz exchequers free. 🌊🏄🏻‍♀️🏄🏻‍♂️🌪💫
