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.
For all their journalistic brilliance, the baffling incompetence of The Economist in the digital domain is almost comical. Neither the weekly paper's app nor this app ever seems to work properly. Right now, they managed to release an "upgrade" that wipes out ALL previous editions of the magazine. And there is no way of bringing them back.
I continue reading the weekly paper on paper. But I am having a hard time taking The Economist seriously.
I am really disappointed that I cannot retrieve the older issues and re-read them as I used to enjoy. If I knew that updating will delete older issues I wouldn't have updated. Please fix this issue as I am sure any follower of this publication will tell you.
If I had known that the upgrade would delete all
my previous issues I never would have upgraded.
Fix this and restore the issues or I will contact your CEO and tell him why I am canceling my Economist Subscription. Please terminate the idiot that had this Brilliant idea!
