Quick lap around the world 5/5
Expresso can be read in less than 10 minutes. I start here and then dig into the details with Apple news.
Topics are broad in scope with more economic news than most.
Economist Espresso 5/5
By Clive's alive
If you, like me, don't have time to read newspapers, then the Espresso is perfect. Succint yet informative, brief yet authoritative, it will satisfy without costing valuable time.
Concise and timely 5/5
Just the right dose of news first thing in the morning.
My morning humor!!! 5/5
By Kallanna manjunath
I look forward to the last sentence of each section!!! Witty, funny and clever!!
Love reading them!!
I want my money back 1/5
By Ian Slackta
I got this app for like appbounty or something and I didn’t know it signed me up to pay 6 dollars a month so I checked my iTunes and I was missing six dollars and now I want my money back because i downloaded this like a year ago and didn’t know it was taking my money and I couldn’t cancel my subscription for a while so thanks for stealing my money I want it back
Best news app ever! 5/5
This is an incredible news app! I've never felt more motivated than now to keep up to date with the news. This app carefully selects a handful of stories each day to read and you can track your progress by checking the boxes next to each story. Easy to use, excellent journalism, up-to-date and objective news briefings. Highly recommended!!!
Great way to start the day! 5/5
By Kappa Blank
As a wealth manager, I need to stay abreast of the headlines. Espresso is the perfect shot of information first thing in the morning. Concise, objective, and topical, The Economist has a winner here.
With my coffee 5/5
Great app. Only one issue. 4/5
Love the app and its simplicity. The only downside are the adverts. As a paid subscriber, it is annoying to have to endure ads. Either don’t charge for Espresso and run ads, or charge and don’t run ads.
Just what it ought to be 5/5
All of the news blurbs are just the right length—informative but very concise and condensed. No frills or fluff, just a quick briefing to start the day.
Good but can easily get better 4/5
- Reading long paragraphs is not pausible in iPhone 8 due to the little space between lines
- Selecting the date in Settings doesn’t make much sense for me, it is better to move it in the main screen.
- Ads don’t make sense for me for a monthly subscription
- What about a funny comic for sunday?
Keep the good work!
Eliminate ads 3/5
Paying for access to the app should eliminate the need for ads.
Haven’t stopped since my professor assigned it was weekly reading. Love the espresso version & the audio clips. Thanks for providing this service.

A Nice Way to Start the Day 5/5
By Grad Student 1812
I love this little morning brief from the Economist. It keep me in the loop on the news, both big and small.
Works well for me 5/5
This app has functioned well for me. It’s a quick way to get an idea of significant world events each day, with market statistics and links to read more as well, though the options to learn more are limited if you don’t subscribe to the magazine.
Morning pop of news morsels 5/5
Well written and diverse stories that are easy to consume.
Good breakfast read 5/5
Love skimming through the succinct blurbs to start my day with some general awareness of the world 🌍 even if I don’t understand all the politics or numbers. I read this version of the economist to fulfill my curiosity then I confess, I usual switch back to scrolling through instagram
Beyond the financial & Economics 5/5
I found the constant articles daily, The Expresso is cuts to the meat; finance and economics, covering social issues and political issues which round the foundations of civil society. As all aspects converge on the Economics, the issue of scarcity & maximizing utility. All behavior, Social & Political are fundamentally occurring by Economic decisions! That’s what Expresso brings you in a daily brief!
fix the notification 4/5
i'm an economist magazine subscriber and I love the espresso app. but the notifications for a new issue everyday has stopped. and i often forget to read it. Please fix it!
Ecenomist Espresso 5/5
By Alan Ducane
Perfect bite-sized news stories to get you ready for the day. Maps, charts, clever writing, key stats - it’s all there in a simple, nifty lay-out. Aptly named, too: it goes perfect with your first cup of coffee (Kopi Luwak, surely?).
Recommended for basically anyone who can read.
A NEW DAY 5/5
By Chipper Flipper
I enjoy the concise and quick selection to start my day.
Keep the Expresso coming! 5/5
I recently subscribed to The Economist and Expresso has been a great lead-in. I feel like I'm more in tune with the news without being overwhelmed. Even when I miss a day, I can easily catch up because it's so concise.
Great to get tips need in short amount of time 5/5
I like that I can read reliable information about the worlds top news stories in a short amount of time.
This is dank 5/5
Dank app my dudes
Nice summary 5/5
By Joseph Rayle
This is not my only source of news, but it does seem to provide pretty good highlights of what is going on in the world.
A shimmering light shining from the door to free speech 5/5
Economist Espresso gives me, a truth craving student in China , and people like me a way to get news told from a different perspective. For that I’m forever grateful.
Don’t pay for ads 1/5
By Jeff Saint
Don’t pay for this app until it gets rid of ads
Double espresso please! 5/5
By Thai student 111
Brilliant idea. I will sign up for sure but 10 stories would be better than 6. At least expand the number of headlines a bit.
Great for quick news 5/5
It’s hard to find substantial but short articles. Right now, Espresso seems to be the best at it. This is for when you don’t feel like committing to a full article, but still want to learn the latest facts.
Best News App 5/5
Reading the news on this app is one of the best parts of my day. I would highly recommend this highly researched and well executed app.
Great app, would be better with audio 4/5
By The Bro Guy
Nicely made app. Doesn’t crash and works well. Would be perfect with audio.
By Hank Paulsen
Very insightful and well written. I feel very informed on international issues every day.
Boiled down to a science 5/5
I love this side app, hooked along with the Economist issues, gives me a good quick brief in the mornings before I get down time to open my long form issue. Different versions of a great thing are always welcome. Shout out to the writers and editors, excellent journalism, editing, and writing work. A steady rock in the rough seas of news lately.
Not getting better .... 3/5
I have used the app for at least 5 years now. It’s my usual cycling companion. Little by little I have watched the engineering decline and judgement grow worse.
Bluetooth buffering has been a consistent flaw that they can’t seem to get right. On certain devices when there is a pause, the resumption is delayed. Poor QA practices.
UI is not really improving and in the audio section is plain bad.
I pay for the subscription. Can I expect not to have to “swipe left” to avoid the upfront ad? The swipe is poorly done so 3 out of times you end up clicking. That’s called a clickbait - is that Economist wishes?
When first introduced, it was annoying. Now that it is always shown even when you are simply returning to continue on the article you were reading or listening to, it’s just plain offensive. You think that extra half a cent worth the damage to you brand’s image?
Poor judgement on the app diminishes a great magazine.
Show ADs after subscribing? 3/5
And sometimes pull to update didn’t work.
Feature Request 4/5
By Paul Spradling
Mark which days I've already read completely (in Settings)
Keeps charging me after I unsubscribed 1/5
I unubscribed and still was charged, what is this?
Does not support iPad 1/5
This app is good, but doesn’t support iPad. Only works fine with iPhone
Quick and to the point. 5/5
Love this app; I downloaded it with my new subscription. It’s layout is very appealing. Night mode option is great. I feel like I’m getting relevant news without having to scroll through social media B.S. 🤗
To the Point and Insightful 5/5
By Gines Passmonte
Espresso is the perfect way to start the day. Concise news about stories you won’t see on the morning news.
Brief, yet complete 5/5
Provides easy access to an overview of the latest news, and links to extended coverage where necessary. Summary is reliable and good for prioritizing reading.
Clean interface, slow startup and access on older devices.
In a nutshell 5/5
Nice synopsis when one doesn’t have the luxury of time.
Morning News Quick Run Down 5/5
By Eagle Eye 7
The Economist Espresso provides a short list of of world news highlights that's detailed sufficiently enough for a great understanding of the real news provided. The Economist editors do their list well, which includes a highlight of the world stock markets. Their news offerings are always on par and written well! Thanks Economist Espresso Team!
Those end quotes are really nice!
Best News App 5/5
By Rhone B
The Economist has always been one of the most sophisticated sources of news out there. The fact that they were able to connect with the new “A.D.D.” age of America is another sign of their keen sense. This is my favorite app and I start everyday with a cup of Joe and Espresso.
Loving it 5/5
Love the fact that it’s short, it gives me the gist of the story, don’t have to read 800 word story to know the basics. If I want more then I search, but this is just great. Of course for a US audience there’s too many UK news, but I’ll take it, nice to see outside our borders.
The app is fast and easy 5/5
By Denis_Not taken name
Couldn’t be more happy with this app as I use it for 2 years with no issues whatsoever. Consistent, easy, fast, quality content. Thank you!
My daily shot of espresso 5/5
I use this app daily to get a quick brush up on the big news in the world. So far the stories have been very intriguing and well written. I highly recommend it to those looking for a fairly unbiased and high quality news source.
Best News App 5/5
I read this every day and get an unbiased liberal leaning review of the WORLD news
Forget the New York Times 5/5
This is all you need.
Concise, timely, considered, politically neutral.
Wanna an ipad version 5/5
I love this app but it could be better if we can use the app from ipad, too.
