By Limited

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The leading magazine of ideas, current affairs and culture

Prospect has established itself as the must-read title for those with a keen interest in politics, economics, history, philosophy, science, literature and the arts.

Prospect’s depth sets it apart. Each issue brings together the sharpest minds on the events and ideas that define the modern world. What results is an entertaining, informative and open-minded magazine that mixes compelling argument and clear headed analysis with elegance and vitality in design.

As a Prospect reader you will benefit from:

- The big ideas that are shaping our world
- Independent thinking and debate
- In-depth analysis by the world's best writers
- A wide range of opinions, to challenge your own

Prospect delivers cutting-edge and contrarian argument in-depth and in advance from voices including Mikhail Gorbachev, Will Self and Joseph Stiglitz. You may not always agree—but we will promote great debate and challenge current thinking.

"Political writing for grown-ups, well beyond the party political playpen... Europe's outstanding political and cultural monthly"

Andrew Marr, BBC Presenter and Political Commentator

"Prospect is simply the best of its kind: provocative yet detached; thoughtful, and elegantly written. An important read without being self-important"

Jonathan Dimbleby, Broadcast Journalist

Customer Reviews

Content great, app working super!

I'm an irregular subscriber to the paper Prospect. Generally well written and eclectic enough, had a dip under the last editor (relative to the first editor) but seems a bit more interesting and varied now. Last time i subscribed the app was really shoddy and not worth the effort. This version is now actually very enjoyable to use on iPhone and iPad. Good that they put effort in to it, just now for them to fix their website.

This app makes it annoying to read Prospect.

This app is an absolute clunker on the iPad, and it has my subscription living on borrowed time.

First: it doesn't support native resolution for anything larger than the iPhone. The writing just isn't sharp and this is unforgivable on these devices in 2017.

Second: the layout is appalling. The text is confined to a scrolling box in a section of the page, so that a navigation bar can occupy a huge left column. All space should be given to the article.

The iPhone app is very nicely optimised, including a text-only reading view which is useful for the limited screen real estate on small screens. I dearly wish the same attention was applied to the iPad, a screen that should be the natural home for a magazine.

I purchase Prospect to read the articles, and this app makes it annoying to do so.

Unusable on iPad

Great magazine: useless App; unhelpful support helpline.

Took out an annual digital subscription. iPhone was fine but naturally wanted to read it on iPad. Informed had to use third party App Pocketmags for iPad access. Anyway it just wouldn't work. Several calls to helpline and when eventually get through they just read through the mantra of instructions rather than help. Cancelled subscription and gone with Spectator. Much better.
