This app is great for on the go. I use the audio features all the time so I can listen to the whole version while I'm driving. It is occasionally prone to crashes, but the narrators and content are great.

The Economist has always been one of my favorite magazines. The App is very intuitive, stable and easy to use. The best feature is the ability to download the magazines for offline reading. I can only recommend this App!

The economist apps are good. I mean, the writing is good and they go in depth concerning current issues. But obviously nothing beats the paper version : your eyes get less tired and the covers are always brilliant!
