Comments and Ratings for The Economist

Even the largest font is too small (1.8)
9/21/2018 3:55:44 PM 3/5 By Denyur
Please allow for much bigger fonts. The current largest font is too small. The old app allowed to zoom in to change the font sizes and much bigger ones were available. This is my biggest issue before I even contemplate renewing.

Great Content, please consider Apple Watch (1.7)
9/21/2018 2:42:06 AM 4/5 By med student001
There are no bad ideas just those that are too early. Now that the Apple Watch has gained popularity and function and Bluetooth headphones have proliferated. please consider rereleasing the watch app. Thanks

Worse than the old app (1.7)
9/19/2018 12:00:36 AM 1/5 By Martin needs a nickname
The new app no longer downloads whole issues and is dependent on a network connection to properly load articles with images. This makes it useless during my commute, constantly showing empty space where charts and images should be.

Needs improvement (1.7)
9/14/2018 2:47:06 AM 3/5 By RJ Turing
I urge the developer teams to make the design more aesthetic before adding new features. Performance should be enhanced, too.

Audio Update (AMENDED) (1.7)
9/7/2018 5:58:39 PM 3/5 By Keydet
So, when you update the audio features, where did you put them? I can’t find the audio on my iPad or my iPhone... I STAND CORRECTED, THE AUDIO COMES IN AFTER THE TEXT Also, have you looked at the app on an iPad Pro 12.9? Just curious if that’s the polished look you want.

Audio edition doesn’t work well (1.6)
9/3/2018 10:06:14 PM 1/5 By aariaa
The audio edition barely works in this new update. I also miss being able to create audio playlists of articles. The previous version was much better for this

Doesn’t remember places (1.6)
8/30/2018 2:32:39 PM 5/5 By hdv2018
The app doesn’t remember places when i quit the app. I have to scroll down to the article/paragraph i read last time.

New app review (1.6)
8/30/2018 5:15:29 AM 4/5 By joelmartin.rph
I like the overall design and combo with expresso edition but 2 main things I noticed that have become issues - the button to play audio is embedded in the article which makes it easy to accidentally click and start audio accidentally which can be annoying; also the new app does not regularly remember where you left off in the weekly edition like the previous app did causing repeat scrolling to find the last article.

Incompatible with iOS (1.6)
8/24/2018 6:05:57 PM 1/5 By TBDickerson
Doesn’t work on the iPhone 7.

Pleasure to use (1.6)
8/24/2018 2:56:57 PM 5/5 By Ifeanyi Uddin
Nothing beats having this much resource in one place. Except maybe the in-story links to other stories, which I can now follow. Downside? Was easy with the “classic” edition to hold down a new word, and have it defined. Doesn’t work here. Nor is it possible to share the end-installment quote on the Espresso as it was in the stand-alone version.

From this dev.
