  • Audio feature needs help

    By ahc10
    I use this app primarily for the audio feature. I listen on my commute to/from work. When the audio works, it’s great, but this feature is pretty buggy, and now, it seems to have completely stopped. Please fix ASAP! I crave my daily Economist fix!
  • Please fix the audio X button

    Audio is my most used feature on the iphone app. When you want to go out of the audio menu while playing audio, the X at the left top corner does not respond in iphone xs max all the time. I have to keep tapping at it. I have the latest iOS.
  • Terrible application

    Amazing content but horrible app. It doesn’t let me pause or fast forward and sometimes prevents me from accessing its audio files.
  • awkward giant fonts can’t be shrunk

    The smallest font setting is way too large. Unreadable on the iPad Pro, and awkward on the iPhone XS. These giant fonts have been an issue since the 2017 update. When will it be fixed? Just allow the fonts to be adjusted to a size that is standard on all other apps, eg Kindle, NY times.
  • Great content but terrible app

    The Economist audio app should be much better. If anything, it seems to have worsened over time. It used to allow to play just a selected playlist. Now that option is no longer available. Second, if I stopped listening to a story mid-way, next time I opened the app, it would pick it up where I left. That’s no longer possible so I have to start from the beginning. This is very unpractical if you are using the app while driving during your commute.

  • Audio is buggy as hell

    I love the Economist and have been reading it, whether with my eyes or ears, for years. I’ve gravitated toward the audio version recently but have had consistent issues with it actually playing the audio. Today, 16 Feb 2019, I’m trying to play the completely downloaded (as opposed to streamed) audio for the most recent issue. While some sections play, others, including The Workd This Week and Leaders refuse to play. If I can’t access the content, I can’t be happy with the app. In addition, the developers need a more informative (e.g. indicate which sections have been read) and intuitive interface. I just don’t get the flow.
  • The audio does not work anymore

    I tap on the audio playback and nothing happens. I even tried downloading the entire audio and it still does not work. Please fix.
  • Lost x1.25 audio speed

    Great app but please bring back the x1.25 audio speed, lost in the last update. Thanks
  • More Granular Audio Speed Control

    By Señor Rios
    The writing and UI remains outstanding. I agree with reviewers who ask for more granular control over the audio player’s speed. Increments of .25 would be a huge improvement.
