The Economist Classic (US) App Reviews

  • 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 Cynical SOB

  • 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!
  • A much needed intelligent news source.

    By laborpeace
    It has become my prime source of world and cultural news. I trust your facts if not always your opinions. You clearly separate fact from opinion. This is rare in today’s media. Too many people are put off by the name “The Economist”. They think that it must be some academic economics magazines. Actually it is very close to the Newsweek of the 1960s.
  • Expensive, but worth it

    By underdog2
    In the face of an overall collapse in journalism, the Economist marches on, with worldly, wordy, deeply researched and well written stories, with both a broader and deeper perspective than one can generally find these days. I hardly ever read a densely-packed issue cover to cover; yet a quick scan of the pages coupled with an intensive reading of a few articles is vastly rewarding. Often, even after weeks, I refer back to the special single-issue supplement, which is usually 14 pages of insight. If your banker will finance a pricey subscription, go for it.
  • Excellence in journalism

    By Living un Washington State
    In the era of oftentimes reduced civility in shared discourse, lack of oversight and accountability for assessing the degree of reliability and validity of statements from source references, and eroding expectations for meeting the standards of excellence in journalistic professionalism, it is a distinct pleasure to peruse through and slowly reflect on the thoughtful and insightful writing of this magazine during drinking my first cup of coffee in the morning.
  • The best, most reliable, thorough newspaper today

    By jflorwell1984
    The Economist has been my go-to news source for the past 4yrs. The sections are diverse and each section contains well written, analytical articles. The special reports are in depth and covering emerging, important and current topics. If the hyperbole of the 24h news cycle is wearing on your nerves, the Economist does well in highlighting what is or should be important. Please take a look.
