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

Worthy of 5 Stars Fix some bugs and it's my favorite app. Please fix: audio cutting off before the last sentence or two of each article and I'll give it 5 stars

Good enough but many bugs App is good enough but there are quote a few bugs such as font rendering being a bit blurry, font size being too large, pressing the back button sometimes sends me all the way back to the magazine front page instead of the list of contents, audio playback in notifications won't go away after stopping playback and exiting the app.

In my last review I stated that The Economist apps needs to update to adhere to Android /Jelly Bean design standards. Android is now on Material design. The content is good, but the app is so outmoded it's a joke. The font styles alone are horrible. Needs updating.
