Customer Reviews

Good not Great

This app is not worthy of 4 nor 5 starts. It's somewhere in the middle.

I like the download progress bar in iOS but I appreciated the overall layout of the app on my old HTC M8 a lot more than my iPhone 6.

This is nothing against the app itself. If you're used to using "Newsstand" as opposed to seeing the app tile for what it is, then this app is gravy. If you're like me, it's kind of annoying.

Economist Rules

I have been subscribing to the Economist for many years. At first I was not a fan of the digital version over the print, but this one is like the print and with the audio options, makes it easier to read on the go. A great way to stay a head of things I love the reliability and ease of use of the application on my iPhone 6 plus.

Exceptional

I enjoy both The Economist's outlook and its iPhone application. It has often been difficult for me to find time to read through an entire issue, but since full audio functionality was added, I've been able to keep current.

The subscription is worth the money. 😃
