User reviews of The Economist
No longer downloads to Xperia Arc. Tried everything. Great content, persistently unrealiable app.

Generally great, small glitches Needs to let me zoom in on the cartoons and the audio cuts out on the last 10 seconds of every article. Otherwise, a great product.

Audio edition frustration Why does this app lack the playlist function that is vital? Prone to spontaneously deleting downloaded issues. Bring it up to the standard of the ios app which finally is functional.

In-Your-Face Ads Are Insulting Note to companies who've bought ads presented through this app: the obnoxious way they are presented through this app's UI triggers my boycott response in the same way that popups and popovers do on the web. I've been given this strongly negative first impression after finally deciding to subscribe to the digital edition. I've previously enjoyed the print, and iPad app preview versions, and otherwise had positive feelings towards The Economist as a brand. Not sure I will renew.

Still crappy app Finished reading an article and want to go back to main table of contents? You can't. You must first close the issue, reopen it and flip through the first advertisement. Shameful and unworthy of The Economist.
