The Economist is my weekly insight companion. A favorite activity of the weekend - and the audio edition is a trusted companion on long-haul flights.

Never before we have needed thinking and ideas such as The Economist presents. This magazine is vital and necessary reading for anyone who believes the world can always be a better place.

The content is wonderful. The weakness of the app is that it automatically updates the issue that you have loaded. This is an issue on the Boston subway. I loose the connection and cannot read it because the partial update stops.

Brilliant Interface for Global News and Opinions

While the reportage provided by the Economist is excellent and augmented by clearly articulated opinions, the previous iterations of the Economist’s iPhone presence were clunky and unintuitive. This app integrates experiences like the a curated list of articles presented daily below my favorite, the Espresso section which provides snippets of information to wake up to. It has become a staple to my daily life. My one quirk I think should be addressed is the ability to highlight and copy text, and look up words. This functionality isn’t possible in the app while it is in, say, the New Yorker’s Daily app. Also, in the stand alone Espresso app there is an easy way to export the quote of the day to my notes. Integrating that feature into this app would round out the already outstanding interface.

Love content - hate webcast player

Amazing content but keep struggling listening it while commute: - Stucks and requires to press forward and backward buttons so that audio can play again. Have to manually then comeback to the place where left. - need to restart an app to resume playing.

Great content, poor app

The audio player fails to behave as expected much of the time. I have problems pausing and restarting the audio using my headphones. The Bluetooth connection in my car is a nightmare. I sometimes spend 2-5 minutes in my driveway trying to get it to work before beginning my drive. Otherwise I’ll fight with it while driving and cause an accident. The articles are informative and thoughtful. The audio recordings are clear. I love the content I get from this app, I just dislike interacting with it.

Good.

I actually prefer reading the Economist on my PC, but they’ve stopped supporting the app, probably because most people read it on other platforms. The problem with the iPhone app is that while text sizes can be adjusted, pictures, graphs, and cartoons cannot be enlarged. It regularly happens that I simply can’t see something well enough in order to understand it. Apart from that, the app is fine and I think the Economist as a publication is simply invaluable.

Dysfuntional

Wangsondon's Review of The Economist Classic Us

Reviewed on 9/13/18 3:48 PM

I'm not clear on what improvements have been made to this app. It doesn't look very good and the audio is terrible. The voices sound tinny and the speeds are screwed up with normal being very slow and 2x being too fast. The app will lose your place in whatever you were listening to if you are closed out of the app for too long and the speed resets as well. I'm sorry I updated it. New bugs have now appeared. If you’re listening to the audio and get a phone call the app will freeze and lose your place. It will revert back to whatever article you started listening to the last time you opened the app.

App performs well; Thoughtful world news analysis
