App Reviews

  • Great content and analysis, but the app needs to be improved.

    By E Yuan
    I use the app primarily to listen to the articles in my car during my commute. So most of this applies to when the app connects to my car’s stereo via Bluetooth. Often and all of a sudden, the app becomes unresponsive. Previous versions used to pick up the audio track exactly where I had left it. Now it replays the last article from the beginning, even when there’s only a few seconds left to listen, that is, if it doesn’t completely lose track of where I left it last and reverts to where I left it a session prior to last. Please fix the app’s use case of audio-via-car-stereo-via-Bluetooth. The Economist is my primary and trusted source of news and analysis, and the audio function (great readers, by the way, particularly when they read the obituaries) turns my commute into valuable time, but it could be much smoother after ridding it of these glitches.
  • Blank screen and poor audio

    By smartphoneitis
    I could not read the recent article on Phillip Roth on my iPhone 8. After swiping to the article I could see the page but as soon as I touched the screen to scroll... poof - blank screen. As for the audio, you do your excellent narrators a disservice with the audio player. The volume between passages is all over place. I am constantly adjusting the volume in my car because the introductions are deafeningly loud and the articles are often barely audible. The playback has become more glitchy in recent months with skips and odd repeats of 5-10 second spans of audio. Finally, if we are going to be forced to swipe through ads, at least make it less painful. I have to swipe two or three times to get past the opening ad which does not follow the speed of my swipe. I’m surprised at how irritating this is, but it drives me crazy. In 2016 the app was in much better shape. The quality has been steadily going downhill since then.
  • Brilliant Interface for Global News and Opinions

    By onemcos
    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.
  • Extremely glitch app

    By random64bithash
    This app is a constant source of headaches for me, especially the audio edition. Frequently and for no apparent reason, issues I had downloaded and were listening to uninstall themselves. Often, the next story will not load successfully, leaving me with dead air. I have found no clear way to troubleshoot when this happens, I just have to wait until it starts playing again. This is a huge problem when I go off wifi and onto cellular networks. There is apparently no failover. This can be so severe that the, the audio edition out and out does not load sometimes. No amount of restating the app will resolve the problem either. This coupled with a lack of user facing notifications makes for an incredibly frustrating user experience. This is too bad, because the content is easily the best available. If the audio edition would at least fail gracefully, I would probably not be as frustrated as I am with the app.
  • About the audio edition

    By frinkle
    The audio playback part of the app is very buggy. You have to play it in the app. Migrating the files to other apps creates chaos. You want listen to the app in the car but it frequently just stops for no reason and has to be rebooted. So you have to stop the car to attend to it. There are only a couple of play back speeds. The buttons are tiny. Often a large chunk of the audio will not be in chapters so you can’t find your way around. The app starts very slowly and then it won’t play until you go back one chapter and then forward to try again. Sometimes it just won’t load so back you quit the whole app going through the swiping and back chaptering all over. The readers are great. The content of course is superb most of the time. The audio app is the problem
  • Don't update!

    By Mmpietro
    The Economist gets 5 stars. But this app is buggy. In the latest update in the audio player playlist, text is superimposed on other text making it illegible. Once you go from "track list" to "playlist " you're there for good. No way to go back. This was not ready for release. I know you guys can do better. Update: there have now been at least two software updates without fixing or acknowledging this problem. What gives? Ok the latest versions of Economist and IOS are compatible. Back to 5 stars!
  • Fix Audio Levels

    By Kraince
    A longstanding problem is the inability of The Economist's audio engineers to maintain a continuous input level. The volume needs to be adjusted every time a new speaker takes the mic--especially when a male-sounding speaker shifts to a female. At the same time, the music between stories is set at such a high level that the listener is repeatedly jolted. There also seems to be a new glitch which freezes the app if one switches to a different audio without pressing pause. The result of all this is that once again we are falling into a situation in which the audio is undermining what is otherwise an excellent product.
  • Best content. Worst technology.

    By RobertoStorio
    The Economist continues to follow it's business model for its digital edition - best content, but worst technology. Improved from the past but still lots of problems. The font size almost always reverts to default size when going from one article to another on iPad or iPhone. Also, if you don't do a perfect 180 degree swipe you'll go to the next article rather than go down or up. I just tried to read an article while petting my cat. Not possible. I kept going to the next article because my downward motion using only one hand wasn't straight enough. None of the downloading problems of the past, but still definitely the most technologically challenged app of all the news sites I use.
  • Solid compliment to the magazine

    By Elealiu
    Long-term reader of the Economist, I recently made the switch to this app format from the Kindle edition. The audio edition on the app is an amazing addition. For a long time I skimmed multiple sections due to not having the time necessary to devote to a full sit down read. Now, I listen to those sections during my daily commute and can take in the entire magazine. My only gripe would be that the audio edition consistently crashes if I use Google Maps, my main GPS. This resolves if I use Apple Maps instead but I would prefer to use Google’s.
  • Economist is awesome, this app is fine

    By Jeremy_Gr
    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.
