The Economist for iPhone app reviews

  • Exceptional publication! 5/5

    By Tweiler
    As an American I tire of the constant focus on trivial Trump tweets. Meanwhile horrific actions are changing the world daily. The US congress is shortening timelines for drastic changes with essentially no notice by the US press. The Economist fills the gap.
  • Clean and clear 5/5

    By llhtran
    Effective, intuitive and to the point presentation.
  • Sets the bar 5/5

    By SnoringBoris
    This app really couldn't be better. I'm a long time subscriber and read the E on print and web - this is a great app.
  • Fast, elegant, powerful 5/5

    By Meldimor
    And the content is obviously excellent.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Dzeitzoff
    Very convenient and easy to download. The economist writing and content is the best in the world
  • Love it 5/5

    By Mistahdoom
    I enjoy listening at 2X speed, and appreciate being able to download audio by section.
  • Just one problem. 4/5

    By NRFro
    Five star app when it's working. Does everything you would want it to. Every so often, it's simply refuses to download the next issue. The only fix I found is to delete the app and reinstall it.
  • Need to fix audio 4/5

    By Robbie Meat-Hands
    The economist is a great app and has fixed many of the issue from 2016. It is one of my primary sources for news and I enjoy reading every issue. One request would be to keep my place across multiple devices. I listen to the audio version frequently on my personal phone, my work phone and my tablet. It would be terrific if each device knew my last position, whether read or listened too.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Smohan1981
    Great app
  • Smooth 5/5

    By DrewMi
    Easy to browse, clean look, great reading
  • Fantastic magazine 5/5

    By Nneptune
    I've been a subscriber for almost 10 years now. I have gained so much insight and knowledge from The Economist; I could not be happier with this publication.
  • Great journalism & great app! 5/5

    By Sharon Peru
    I enjoy his paper so very much. Def worth paying for subscription. Also the app allows for audio reading.
  • finally 3/5

    By LTR2
    Great content. One continuous annoyance: it tantalizingly shows you your spot in an article you are part way through, then snaps you back to the beginning, leaving you to scroll down and find your way back to your place. The content s still top notch. Why can't it just keep our place?
  • Fantastic 5/5

    By Rap Genius 4 Life
    Great app! One thing that could be added would be a built-in browsers for the blogs!
  • Excellent 5/5

    By TylerUatTTU
    The Economist Audio Edition (included in the app) is the best way to stay informed and receive in depth analysis on the go.
  • One of my favorite apps 4/5

    By Inuzukichan
    Love this app, love that I can speed it up to 1.5x the reading speed. I would give it 5 stars if I could easily delete previously read issues to save space.
  • Terrific 5/5

    By Roman89!67
    Love this app
  • Great news app! 4/5

    By Brimarquise
    Love this app, especially the option to listen to the articles. Makes my commute a chance to be informed.
  • Refer to 1/5

    By EliteJoseph
    I am a 16 student and follow the economist occasionally. Having a different interpretation or bias is understandable and okay. However, I hate sitting by and reading theses articles on social media platforms like snapchat and seeing it divide people further and casting opposing ideas as evil and immoral. People are awakening...
  • Outstanding content 5/5

    By Hikinthru
    LOVE the audio feature, I couldn't be more pleased.
  • The best 5/5

    By Dan9476
    The only thing better than the app is the content.
  • Reinstalled and now I can download 5/5

    By ztztzt8888
    Pushing download button does nothing before deleting and reinstalling
  • Economist app review 5/5

    By Gautam Balakrishnan
    I have several magazine apps and none have the seamless look and feel, the fluidity and ease of navigating like the economist. It's superb. The auto download feature keeps me updated and whenever I get the time I read a few articles. The ability to share is also wonderful. Highly recommend
  • Audio is glitchy 2/5

    By AmericanBatman
    Sometimes it refuses to move on to next download, keeps playing same story -- requires app restart. Sometimes audio doesnt play at all.
  • The best, no question. 5/5

    By Excellent App yeah okay
    Quality app, uploads every Thursday so I can read on the flight home- perfect for consultants. Not to mention the quality and insight of the writing- and the still to date perfect record on grammatical errors as far as I can tell
  • A very well designed app. 5/5

    By Usear679
    The app is very good and the apple watch integration is almost smooth.
  • Best News App 5/5

    By Dickbagdez
    The Economist is the best news app. Full audio for on-the-go and the Espresso app for your morning dose.
  • Good 5/5

    By beimsw
  • Love the audio for my commute 5/5

    By Grahamwicks
    and it just works (nearly all of the time)
  • Doesn't work 1/5

    By Sorry I'm a swede
    Updated and it doesn't work. Boo
  • Game changer 5/5

    By drsg90
    I actually get through the entire magazine now. I wish all publications would adopt this tech.
  • Not so great support 2/5

    By Anuraag, india
    The app is good and it is nice to have the magazine online without having to store paper copies. The app support is quite useless though. I bought a new ipad and was trying to log in into my new ipad using economist app. It just does not work. Multiple mails and reminders to app support just tells me to reinstall app and log in. No solution still....
  • Excellent 5/5

    By Krly100
    The economist is so informative and easy to digest. Easy to access via the app.
  • Helpful 5/5

    By Adelashila12345
    Very nice interface. I love to read it.
  • UI needs work, but content is phenomenal 4/5

    By BtLutz
    The interface works well, the content downloads quickly, ads are unobtrusive, and the writing is great. The only sticking point is buttons within the UI, but that seems like an easy fix for me.
  • Easy to use - love the audio version 5/5

    By JackyJavelin
    Super easy to use. Love it
  • Excellent Way to Access Content 5/5

    By AaronAslin
    A must-have for anyone with a smartphone and cares about being an educated citizen.
  • A Great App for a Great Magazine 5/5

    By Pejcuaor
    I love the (mostly) unbiased and matter-of-fact reporting the economist provides, and the app is designed in such a way as to make reading or listening effortless.
  • Excellent interface 5/5

    By Terro1r
    This is a generally excellent interface with which to access the illuminating content of the Economist. One small gripe: while scrolling through text, one occasionally has difficulty bypassing tables or graphics and inadvertently opens them. This can make reading an exercise in skillful finger placement.
  • The Best 5/5

    By Polymathes1
    The Economist is, simply, the best. Insightful, unique, and deep reporting gives you a perspective matched by no other periodical.
  • World's best magazine 5/5

    By Tom in Ellensburg
    They call themselves a newspaper but what matters is The Economist is the best periodical on the planet. And the audio feature on their app makes it the best app as well. Why can't others follow their lead?
  • Update broken 1/5

    By robnickname
    After this update, I can not download the latest issue. The download button does not respond to taps, nor does the magazine image.
  • Great 5/5

    By i_iPhone
    Love this magazine
  • Great, easy to use app 4/5

    By AnonymousSSZZzzz
    The app is simple and very easy to use. I wish I could highlight passages and come back to them later. But other than that, it's great.
  • Great magazine app 5/5

    By Ktlikes
    This app makes it easy to read on the small screen and the larger iPad screen. Best magazine format I've found. The fact that it's a great way to keep up with international news is the real reason to get it. Great all around.
  • The Best 5/5

    By Angy 2011
    Economics publication around the world. Wide coverage in depth analysis
  • Superb writing, stylistically progressive app structure. 5/5

    By YourDarkestFearsOfInadequacy
    Love it, love it all.
  • Audio version is great 5/5

    By Ricky Bobby Jr.
    The audio version makes it perfect to read the Economist between classes, when I would otherwise be wasting time and wouldn't be able to find another time to read the magazine.
  • Change the narrators... for a change! 3/5

    By hayks
    For those who are using the audio version, listening to the same couple of narrators is becoming really tiring over the years. Pease use different narrators. Otherwise, the content is excellent. Thank you.
  • Fantastic!! 5/5

    By Corey ray135
    I've tried to cut the Economist from my budget in the past, but every time I do I'm severely disappointed with the level of journalism available elsewhere. Worth ever penny! My only complaint is that i feel guilty because I know I'm missing something of value every time I have to skip an article due to time.
