Long term subscriber, very easy to read and research by topic.

Content is great; navigating in the app is awful.

's Review of The Economist Classic (us)

Reviewed on 9/30/18 6:23 PM

I love The Economist’s reporting, insight, and clever writing. The app’s navigation is awful. When I’m done reading an article, what can I do next? What visually tells me that is available? Swiping from the left side of the screen is not the same as the back arrow. How do I make the back arrow appear? Why do I have to scroll up so far? These are important core functionality, poorly thought out and worse than the last time I used the app (about a year ago). You’ll have to decide if the pleasure is worth the pains. It is for me, but just barely.

The extreme center

I have been an Economist reader for over 30 years. This is partly to enjoy the excellent writing and partly to get an outsider’s view of the US. We tend to forget there are other people out there.

Often, the download of content is incomplete. The background download fails, so you only get part of an article. When you swipe down, you get blank space and the app crashes. Extremely frustrating.

Excellent source of well written information.

Reviewed on 9/2/18 8:12 PM

The Economist is the best single source of weekly information available. The app allows the entire magazine to be down-loaded so that it can be read on airplanes and other places with patchy access.

App locks up

Love the content, not the app. It really doesn’t work. It’s unresponsive when I touch a section. I’m trying one of their other apps before I drop my subscription.

Great user experience

One of the best magazine apps out there. A great way to read The Economist’s content every week.

Can’t Magnify Images

Trksak's Review of The Economist Classic (us)

Reviewed on 9/14/18 3:42 PM

I used to be able to magnify images by just clicking on them. That functionality has been lost in recent updates. Please fix it. 9/14/18 update: Still the same. Why has this been so hard to fix? Now I can’t download the new issue on my original IPad to read while exercising.

Great content
