What's New in Version 2.0
The new app from Intelligent Life, compatible with all iOS devices, is now available. Issues downloaded using the old app are not currently available, but we will be publishing back issues from 2015 over the next few weeks. Every piece from the magazine is also available on our website, http://www.moreintelligentlife.com
This is the new app from Intelligent Life, replacing our apps for iPad and iPhone. It is compatible with all iOS devices.
This is, or rather was, one of my favourite apps providing access to my favourite magazine. As a long-time subscriber to The Economist this is an excellent bi-monthly addition. Until now. I had downloaded a number of the editions for re-reading my favourite pieces only to find that they have been deleted. An app upgrade is the apparent excuse. Why is such a sophisticated, intelligent (sic) magazine incapable of upgrading the app without deleting previous downloads. Imagine if iTunes did this?
What has gone wrong? No back issues, navigation so good now so poor, subscription option doesn't work. This was how all e-mags should be, now it is mediocre at best!
I should say though, when you get to the actual content it is still first class!
