The Economist Classic (US) App Reviews

  • Audio playback unusable

    By nimatra
    Audio playback has persistent issues that makes me wonder whether anyone at economist has used it on iPad. - Can't stream audio. - you'd need to download audios from the main page audio section start the first play there - now you can play the audio for the articles you have downloaded the audio for - every now and then the audio section of the app crashes and you'd need to restart the app to use it again
  • Audio Broken

    By MV94941
    For the last three issues the audio for the first 5 or 6 articles fails to play in both the iPad and the iPhone apps.
  • Variety

    By JBBuhrMD
    I appreciate the wide variety of topics, including environment, science, the arts. Delightful journal.
  • Split-Screen upgrade please!

    By Mr. Kungu
    The quality here is second to none and I usually reserve my Saturdays to catch up on the weekly news. Only thing keeping the app from 5-stars is the lack of split-screen feature. I’m big on multi-tasking and don’t like how I can’t split the screen on this app. Otherwise, great content.
  • Can’t get past the ad

    By angry at loss of privacy
    Very frustrating pay the subscription and with each new edition an ad appears before you can read anything. The swipe to exit doesn’t work and the the bright line ad tells me they are going to steal my data and sell it to advertisers. Fix it or I cancel the subscription.
  • Objective news

    By Patriciony
    I love this magazine it gives you a more international and cosmopolitan insight. Helps to have better information about the world
  • Excellent

    By Cynical SOB
    If you value an international point of view on business, politics and the economy this is the magazine and app for you.
  • Great newspaper made better

    By lawtonk
    Reading the Economist on my iPad app makes it very accessible as I get older. It works really well and enhances the experience over the printed version. Good job!
  • Generally good

    By GribbleFlotz
    I've been reading the digital version of The Economist for many years and have found it's very readable and a good alternative to read trees. For the past year I've noticed that there is frequently an unreadable article, one that shows the first screen but turns black as soon as I attempt to look further down. The screen stays blank until I switch to another article. Switching back to the problem article or even deleting the issue and downloading it again doesn't help. This never effects two articles in one issue and never impacts articles near the front of the issue. In the most recent issue, the Christmas issue, it is "Whiffs of reality" that is unavailable.
  • Glitchy

    By Mvondrechsel
    The app is mostly good in that it remembers where I left off and is very stable in all areas except science. For some reason, I cannot read some of the science articles. I can see the header but when I try to read it goes blank. This happens on every fifth or six edition. Please fix that!
