  • iTunes Subscription, Do not Use

    By ChrisHBrandon
    This app does not recognize the iTunes subscription.
  • Do not purchase this via iTunes

    By CRamamurthy
    I had purchased via iTunes and later got to know that it doesn’t give us the full app access I.e. with a CRN and log in ID , it can only be accessed via Apple news. Also neither economist or Apple are processing a refund for this mistake, instead buy it from the web/app directly to get the full access.
  • Improvement over classic Us version

    By M_J_S
    Much prefer this over classic Us version. Prefer to see articles as I open it and no need to go through the downloading of the issue thing. Just seems to flow better and be more like a contemporary news app as opposed to a magazine viewing app.
  • No more selection

    By 有一个GV
    I like the old version which allows u to select a word and look up for it right away
  • Vastly improved

    By johnmhome
    This is, I believe the third rewrite of the app, and is much better than version 2, which was clunky and limited. Integration of daily updates, and hyperlinks in articles are a delight
  • Need dictionary feature

    By Bill cfh
    Cannot select any word. In previous app, it is easy to select some word and search on the web. Now I need two more step to get it. So bad. I will edit the review, when this feature is added.
  • Please enable text selection

    By _x3n
    Without text selection we lack the ability to look up words, search the web, or share quotes quickly. Would be great to have a playlist for audio or even just auto play the audio between bookmarked articles so we could use that as a playlist.
  • Ok app, great journalism

    By lrhsvjus
    The layout of the app is somewhat unconventional (back button in bottom left instead of top left) and it suffers from a number of bugs. But I really like the articles.
  • Please add listening queue functionality

    By Thejaravi
    Love the app and I like listening to audio stories. It would be great if you add queue functionality so that I can add all stories I want to listen to it and listen to them continuously.
  • Great app

    By degr200
    I like this app a lot better that the economist classic app. The only improvement I would like is for iPhone X users, when scrolling down the text gets between the time on the upper left corner and the same with the network info on the right top corner. As I read I like to check the time and I have to scroll down until I find a blank space to be able to check the time.
