The Economist App Reviews

  • Night mode scroll bar

    By lkhkljh
    Needs a visible scroll bar in night mode please.
  • Great content but frustrating to use

    By FMC314
    Great product and content. Except that audio articles continuously will restart midway, making it a very frustrating and unusable experience
  • Unbiased and thoughtful perspective

    By The Momster
    The Economist is the only publication I’ve found that delivers a truly analytical well researched and thoughtful perspective on everything it covers. And it covers EVERYTHING. And it delivers it to you on so many platforms. I love the choice of listening, reading full articles and the short daily summaries. I subscribe to the full variety of delivery options and use them all. A truly five star news organization.
  • Awful app

    By Cameron Culver
    Sucked me into buying the 12 week subscription with a flashy title / marketing (my fault) — only to find out the article was over a year old and not relevant. — which once I signed up took me forever to find. This app is wayyy behind a normal news app from a user experience perspective. Technology stuck in 2010. Very fragmented experience. Apple news runs circles around this “paid platform”.
  • Very bad experience especially through Apple subscription

    By Zini
    Faulty. Got logged out after a week. The economist would have to reset my if or ask me to uninstall and reinstall the app. Neither the economics or Apple took responsibility. They cannot handle this services or subscription model with dignity or function. Horrible. Three month subscription- I only got to use 1 month as other period was filled with bugs. Warning- Apple will not take responsibility and economist will keep sending the same fix email copies and pasted.
  • Feedback

    By Tj56432
    Why there is no option to leave a comment on each article?
  • An improvement, but...

    By Luke91387
    Major improvement over the original app but it would be nice to be able to download the print edition for reading offline.
  • Fix the restart bug

    By B-nor
    This bug has been happening for months now! I’ll be halfway through the audio of an article and it will just restart. Please please fix this
  • My primary news source

    By 0917;763637
    The economists is the my first news source for independent analysis and in-depth reporting. Well worth the subscription fee.
  • Wish I could save articles offline

    By archangels89
    Wish I could download whole issues with images for offline viewing. Currently you can only download the audio, but there is no clear way to download whole issues with text and images.
