App Reviews

  • What a disaster

    By Mark7896543
    The Economist has released some good apps and some truly appalling apps - but this is the worst yet. There may be a worse app on the App Store - but I have yet to find it - and each new bugfix seems to make this App even worse. Currently once you’ve downloaded an issue the app will erase it again (about 10 minutes after you’ve ceased active reading) meaning you can’t store an issue offline for reading on a plane; the same is true of audio downloads. The font size is ridiculously large (it’s like reading a book aimed at 5 year olds) and the “night mode” comes on and off at random. The previous app was so much better.
  • guys...come on

    By Dom B L
    Night mode doesn't stick. Still. This bug has been around for years, I believe. Still no iPhone X support after 4 months?
  • Cancel Subscription

    By Prudent Expert
    1x listening speed has increased the cost of the subscription to an amount I can no longer time is too valuable. Not to mention the fact that 1x makes me want to fall asleep while driving and possibly stick my car in a ditch. Historically, I never missed an article due to the ability to listen at 1.5x or 2x. I gave The Economist several months to fix their app and for the last several months I have stopped using the app and rarely read an article or view the advertisements. I am disappointed for touting the publication, the supreme utility of the app, and rallying people to subscribe. Please fix your app!!!
  • Get an update for iPhone X

    By Yi-Andy
    For god sake, it has been 4 months since the release of iPhone X, and you can’t get your developer to update the stupid screen ratio? For god sake, your tech team seems dumb.
  • App unusable

    By notcub
    Economist app: Why are you so bad? I’m sitting in bed trying to read The Economist, but it won’t remember that I want night-time mode, so every new article I open blasts my eyes with white light, rather than the desired black background. Did anyone test this? Tomorrow, I’d like to listen to the audio edition while I drive to work, but the option to change playback speed, which I loved, has been removed. I’ll probably unsubscribe to the magazine at the next renewal, not because the content is bad, but because the app has deteriorated to the point of being completely unusable.
  • Audio feature is horrible

    By PhishSwish
    The audio was completely ruined in the last update. You can no longer order the articles in the playlist in a preferred order, which was 50% of the purpose of the playlist. You are also no longer able to change the speed of the audio playback. Hopefully nobody was paid to create this update, if they were they should be fired.
  • Good app

    By JHS289
    Good app. Easy to look for relevant items with search function. Also possibke to have an article read out. Have been using this for past year and have stopped paper subscription. Minor issue is that the nightmode works inconsistently.
  • Ads make this unusable

    By Luvasjfm
    I'm shocked. Using this app is like going to a spammy website that overlays ads preventing you from using the site. This app does exactly that. I literally paid more to have digital access. Ok you have one or two unobtrusive ads...I'm a little annoyed but fine. But you're telling me these ads are full screen with no exit option...awful awful awful experience. Shame on you
  • Wonder content, horrible audio experience

    By schelljp
    The removal of the ability to listen at 2x speed has made that portion of the app unusable. Please return that functionality!
  • Can’t get past the pop up ad!

    By Mac since 512k
    All these years as the best source of non-fake news, and now I can’t even get past an ad to read my news feed on the app!!! And the website wants me to resubscribe every time rather than letting me sign in.
