    The design is ok, but can definitely be updated to sport a more modern look. The app’s performance is good, but it too can be improved. The only complaints I have are with the Espresso section and the daily picks section. On my device the app has to be opened for a few minutes for the Espresso section to load(yes, I have latest version of app) . Also, the stock quotes that typically show at the end of the Espresso do not show on this app. Finally, the design/ layout of the Espresso section is not up to par with Espresso’s stand-alone app. The pictures on the Daily Picks section, in my opinion, are too big. I hope the latest updates section from the web version is brought to this app. It would also be great to see an Android version of this app release soon. Overall, this app is very useful for subscribers of The Economist. I was very excited when I read Richard Holden’s post on Medium. Can’t wait to see what the developer teams at The Economist do!
  • A good way to read The Economist

    This is pretty great, much cleaner design than previous versions. I do wish they would add landscape mode and split screen multitasking, for those of us using iPad Pros with keyboards. Good job!

    This is a deal breaker. I can’t use it with how I use my iPad and keyboard.
  • Good, but room for improvement

    Slick app. Audio sometimes doesn’t work. Unable to search articles. Does not pair with Sonos speakers.
  • Editorial cartoon unreadable

    It’s no longer possible to zoom in on the editorial cartoon. It doesn’t change orientation when the iPhone is rotated. Its small text is unreadable.

    Overall, this app from The Economist is well designed and useful for subscribers. It is regularly updated to add more features. There’s just a few minor inconveniences and complaints: The Economist Espresso doesn’t show the stock indices, nor the currency recaps; the pictures on the iPad are-in my opinion-too large; the iPad version does not support horizontal viewing; and this app is yet to be released for Android devices.I look forward to seeing more features added to this app. Kudos to the developer teams!

    This is a much better app than the “Classic” edition that is still around - it’s faster and has more content, and I appreciate that Espresso is included so I don’t need two apps now. Two major things though: 1) please, for the love of an open future, bring back full-screen reading mode by allowing the navigation bar to go away; 2) it doesn’t seem like images can be zoomed in on, which I hope you’re working on.
