  • Charged despite app say free trial

    By PeteG8819
    The app said it would provide free 30 day trial but then ended up charging me. Deceitful practice.
  • Doesn’t work

    By KP1mil
    This app has excellent content but seems to load that content only about 10% of the time for me. Disappointing, as I’m a long time Economist subscriber.
  • New version just displays white screen

    By Jlsimmo
    For about a week now the app will either crash or just display a white screen. Please fix.
  • Content is fine, IF you ever receive it

    By AllTheGoodNicknamesreGone
    I’ve always loved the Economist and have read the print version religiously for over thirty years. But their apps (and their subscriptions department) are truly terrible. This app will refresh only about 70% of the time. Every third day, good luck getting the news. It’s also the only app on my phone that regularly crashes. On my phone it looks fine, on my iPad it doesn’t expand to fill the whole screen (it’s “iPhone-sized” but in an iPad screen). The app won’t rotate from vertical to horizontal, even if Screen Aspect is unlocked. Finally, there are different versions floating around in the App Store, so you have to be careful about which one you are getting. My advice: stick to the print edition. (IF it ever shows up on the front doorstep, it’s a great read!)

  • Crazy background usage

    By TresAppy459
    App is running in the background way more than seems reasonable. Bad for battery. :(
  • World in Brief is repeated in Today’s Agenda

    By Abyss312
    The Espresso was good earlier, reading it used to give a concise and brief updates. But now I can see that the items in ‘World in Brief’ is repeated again ‘Today’s Agenda items’ with more or less same wordings. Why should I read this twice? This beats the purpose of the ‘Espresso’ app itself.
  • Expresso

    By LaManchaPlacep
    It is Wednesday morning in California and my Expresso is still showing highlights for Monday!! Time to cancel my subscription!? This is the third time recently this has happened.
  • Why did the currency and commodity page go away?

    By aacarbob
    Currency screenshot still shows in App Store. Recent changes have not improved the app. It was the fastest way I have found keep track of world events. Would like a less slanted take on the news, but at least they are up front about their slant. Many links to other economist related stories, helps also.
  • Something’s missing...

    By BLPDC
    ...oh yeah! THE MARKETS AND CURRENCIES PAGE! Come on, Economist. I cannot fathom why you pulled the Markets and Currencies page out of Espresso. If you’re not bringing it back, you owe it to your subscribers to explain why. And if you are not bringing it back soon, for whatever reason, be prepared to start bleeding subscribers...including me. Bring it back!
