What's New in Version 3.1.1
- Notifications for Apple Watch
- Bug fixes and improvements
Absolutely my favorite iOS app
My favorite feature is the audio edition. Much easier to "read" on the train when I can listen to the full text. Still some small functionality bugs to work out, but I'm patient.
The kinks in v3 are finally getting worked out, but the audio edition glitches when paused after playing at 2x speed. If another app's audio stops playback, when I go to press play on Economist audio it will resume at .5x speed, despite displaying "2x" on screen. Please fix!
Does what it needs to. And does it enough that I use it for listening 2+ hours a day.
Has issues with auto- download of new content over wifi. Never seems to do that on its own.
Overall, average experience.
