Issues frequently don't download completely.
This application desperately needs an update to resolve problems downloading issues from their servers. Frequently cannot finish entire issues, or even subsections. On the same network, an iPhone version has no issues. Still gets a star for content quality.... when you can get it on your device.More
It is like the Android Tablet apps and very easy to navigate. Haven't found yet how to make the letters biggerMore
Offline reading is great, but add black bg for reading
Offline mode is very convenient for travelling. One thing that would make this app a lot better is to be able to change the color to have a black background and white text. This saves battery and is easier on the eyes too.More
Finally its here!
Basic functionality, scrolling and navigation sometimes a bit lagging. Used on Lumia 950. Please add a white on black reading mode for reading at night :-) Would be cool to search through all editions ever as well.More
Unlike Economist for windows 10 this version runs on Windows 10. It does not respond to touch screen commands very well but is quite usable on a touch screen. It does not have any of the pizazz of Espresso. To get the full content you have to be a subscriber with the optional web add on but this quality does not come cheep.More
If you have an Economist subscription this is a must have!More
Make sure magazine is downloaded
When you download a new week's issue, make sure that the tag line, "Available to read offline" is below the picture of the cover. Otherwise, you will not be able to read it without a WiFi connection.More
Too many intro ads
I signed in, downloaded the magazine, and tried to read, but got an add. It wouldn't go away. All I want is information now; I don't care about some wealth management firm that wants cookies on my computer and blocks my view. The digital subscription seems to be a waste of time and money. Now the app is gone from the computer so do I have to subject myself to this mess all over again to get a few stories that I paid for? I don't think so!!!More
Terrible app, non-user friendly
I have used the Economist app on the iPad. It's flawless and very user friendly. This windows 10 version is just terrible. I don't even have to compare with something else. Navigation requires few touches. Links don't open the first time even with the surface pen. Scrolling is bad.More
Internet required to open
Bad 1: App refuses to open without an internet connection, even if issues have been downloaded in advance. The iPad app used to have this issue too, but the app for that platform has since been fixed Bad 2: articles not in the same order as in the print edition, so it's difficult to switch back and forth Bad 3: can't find account settings Bad 4: can't switch to negative view (black background, white text) for reading in sunlight -- this feature is available in the Android version of the app Good 1: crisp fontMore
