Good quality articles, lacking in original journalism but good analysis nevertheless. Requires premium subscription at an eye-watering price but for some reason, still has adverts, which I personally feel is unacceptable given the price is already so alarmingly high. Layout of the app could be a little more logical, feels a little chaotic to me.
Love the content & the newly added much needed features are great. I can also get behind the new ads as I want this publication to exist for a long time & hence hopefully turn a healthy profit. But the bugs like constant crashing when selecting text or performing other actions, the long loading times & unresponsiveness, the horrible audio player & the fact that the app is unable to remember where I last left off are unacceptable. Please fix this. The old app lacked many features, but it worked.
Saved articles needs an option to clear the saved list. Articles should also be added to the bottom of the list, not the top (at the moment you have to add them in the reverse order you want to listen to them).
I'm an economist fan for years. What i miss in the app are the qualifying subtitles of the articles within the weekly tab an also for some articles in the home tab. For quite some articles, the primary title gives only a rough idea of the content. Being required clicking each article once is not an easy way browsing an issue. I'm the past, there has been an app providing all qualifying subtitles for the weekly edition. Why wasn't it continued? Why not add the feature to the app? Thanks!
app constantly restarts halfway through reading an article and even though I've downloaded the latest issues, if I'm trying to read it offline none of the images load
A big improvement on previous versions, but please can you add support for Android Auto so I can listen to the Economist in the car?

Have been a subscriber since 2012 and the app and the audio books have definitely elevated how Im able to experience the thoughtful articles The audio book experience has definitely been improving over time. Big fan of the feature
I especially like when an article has an audio feature. One thing that's glitchy...sometimes I click on a notification and the app doesn't take me to the right article.
Content is great as always, but the mobile notifications are overly frequent, needy and insanely annoying. Once a day is enough. Keep it at that.

Legacy app was much better. Main issues with the new one: 1. Not possible to create a play list of articles to listen to (needed for running) and 2. No more one liner synopsis for articles in weekly edition (was helpful to select which articles to read)
