  • Would love to be able to rotate the screen

    By cd_six
    Been looking for something that was more than just the newspaper for some time, so this makes me happy. But I use my iPad like a laptop, so screen rotation is vital OK, either that was a fast response, or I was missing something. Opened it up today, and the screen rotated for me perfectly. Exactly what I want in an app version
  • Finally get the iPad landscape, thx

  • Missing Special Report?

    By Malcompliant
    The special report on the (US) Democratic Party seems to be missing in this app, but appears correctly in the Classic app. Also, still not happy about the total lack of horizontal mode. I use my iPad Pro horizontally on flights and during my train commute, with the keyboard open. Could also use a download button for each weekly issue. I do not have cellular on my iPad (even if I did, it would be spotty during my commute). Currently, I have no idea if I’m missing some data or chart.
  • Again, you’ve dropped the 1.5x audio speed up??

    By AEB58
    There aren’t enough hours in my day to listen at 1x speed. Please bring back the speed-up options (and also please STOP dropping them with each upgrade!!)
  • How could I change the region of issues on this new app?

  • Good start, lots of potential

    By Good games 1224 !!!!!!!!
    The design is ok, but can definitely be updated to sport a more modern look. The app’s performance is good, but it too can be improved. The only complaints I have are with the Espresso section and the daily picks section. On my device the app has to be opened for a few minutes for the Espresso section to load(yes, I have latest version of app) . Also, the stock quotes that typically show at the end of the Espresso do not show on this app. Finally, the design/ layout of the Espresso section is not up to par with Espresso’s stand-alone app. The pictures on the Daily Picks section, in my opinion, are too big. I hope the latest updates section from the web version is brought to this app. It would also be great to see an Android version of this app release soon. Overall, this app is very useful for subscribers of The Economist. I was very excited when I read Richard Holden’s post on Medium. Can’t wait to see what the developer teams at The Economist do!
  • A good way to read The Economist

    By robogeoff
    This is pretty great, much cleaner design than previous versions. I do wish they would add landscape mode and split screen multitasking, for those of us using iPad Pros with keyboards. Good job!
  • Useful App

    By OverflowGuy
    Well readable and nice UI. Recommended!
  • Unable to get it to work

    By donjoseba
    Downloaded it, attempted to use it and nothing happens. Have now tried to make it work for three days....nothing happens.
  • Can’t change orientation

    By GASinLB
    This is a deal breaker. I can’t use it with how I use my iPad and keyboard.
