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

Usable but with niggles Slow and intermittently laggy, crashes every now and then, inconsistent behavior on the issue downloads. All persistent issues across updates and Android devices.

The excitement of accessing the Economist beating the newsstands turns into painful frustration as the download stumbles and misfires.

Great app and content but... I love the app and content, but it takes a bit long to start up. Please, please, please add a setting to store all the data on the external SD card!

The worst news app I have used For its content quality, diction and presentation, The Economist is far ahead of its competition. However, the when it comes to its mobile app, it is lags behind everyone else. The Economist's mobile application is a frustrating experience. I primarily listen to the audio while driving and it is a consistent disappointment. To start with, there isn't a contents page/playlist where I can select to hear a particular article. I have to actually scroll through the stories one by one by clicking the forward button each time. Secondly, the articles while being played seem to often end abruptly, without finishing the full content. The app hangs very often. Downloading the audio is a horrific experience and really tests my patience every week, where even on a stable strong WLAN connection it gets aborted typically 5-10 times. There is also the issue having 3 separate apps, The Economist, Expresso edition, Anthology series. Why have 3 when you can integrate everything into one? Do you actually expect people to use all 3 apps everyday? The app UI design is painfully counter intuitive and unnecessarily complex. I'm sorry for the scathing.review but please improve.

Comment access needed When I read an interesting article in this app I need to go to my browser and find the article to see the comments. You need to integrate the commentary into the app.
