No longer downloads to Xperia Arc. Tried everything. Great content, persistently unrealiable app.

Needs work The app is okay. It cuts off the end of some articles, chews battery and lacks options that would be easy to implement. But it's better than waiting for the paper to come I the post.

bugs and ads and bugs and ads With every update more ads are displayed and the number of bugs grows. If you have to display that many ads in notably PAID content, then please at least ensure that you have a stable app. At the moment the only stable part of the app are the ads, the articles crash more often than not. The business model of asking for money to ONLY get ads displayed will not survive.

Just one problem Everything on it is great but if you got to homescreen and go back to it from homescreen it reopens to the economist homescreen. But content wise it is amazing, it covers subjects that are relevant to all people all over the world not just the US and ither subjects. It's like the vlogbrothers expanded edition with more seriousness.

Content presentation needs a overhaul There is no doubt about the quality of the content in economist but it's also necessary to have a smooth and presentable interface for people to interact with and to enjoy the superb content. That is one thing that this app lacks. If the developers are able to take care of this one issue, this would be the best app in its category, hands down.
