Ratings and Reviews
Great app and service with one caveat
Stratfor is an insightful and dare I say essential service for anyone whose work relies upon the acquisition of up to the minute information regarding areas of the world that popular journalism generally ignores because it isn’t “sexy” (yet), or for anyone that wishes to understand and be aware of global developments before they float to the top of the social media septic tank (a phenomenon also known as “trending”). Its analysis is pythian in its ability to glean microscopic details from macroscopic trends, and the situation reports are indispensable due to their brevity and up to minute frequency. The situation reports in particular could be compared to a near real-time version of the Economist’s Espresso.
My sole complaint is that the Quarterly, Annual, and Decade forecasts are not available in the app, and yet are essential reading, especially for new users. It would also be convenient if the Tablet and mobile apps were merged.
Great App - Finally
Addressed issues with articles not displaying written content and now able to access podcasts within articles.
A previous version of the app was painfully slow, but this version is fast and easy to use. I would like to be able to set a default font size, or at least have it remember my previous choice next time I open the app. I would also like to be able to pinch-zoom the graphics, which are all but impossible to read. Finally, I have two items for a wish list: first, that the app gave me the option to export articles: mail, save as PDF, open with another app, etc; and second, that it could sync with my account so that I can save articles I read on my phone and view them when I’m at my desktop. ( I suppose that wish is kind of a bigger project.) Otherwise, it’s good.
