Ratings and Reviews
Split-Screen upgrade please!
The quality here is second to none and I usually reserve my Saturdays to catch up on the weekly news. Only thing keeping the app from 5-stars is the lack of split-screen feature. I’m big on multi-tasking and don’t like how I can’t split the screen on this app. Otherwise, great content.
Audio playback unusable
Audio playback has persistent issues that makes me wonder whether anyone at economist has used it on iPad.
- Can't stream audio.
- you'd need to download audios from the main page audio section start the first play there
- now you can play the audio for the articles you have downloaded the audio for
- every now and then the audio section of the app crashes and you'd need to restart the app to use it again
I love this magazine it gives you a more international and cosmopolitan insight.
