  • An Oasis of Erudite Sanity

    By RetiredBob2
    Living in the USA, with many competing sources of news, most of them partisan and US-centered, I find the Economist Expresso to a a concise and civilized overview of significant world events. Many if these do not make the US-based media. The economic overview is concise and useful.
  • Concise, and still insightful

    By TheOnekee
    Love the app. It provides a clear view of what is going on around the world, in 8 very easy to read short stories.
  • Match The Economist app

    By Sundaytsquare
    I wish it matched the regular Economist app. It’s close but not the same.
  • Not bad but could be better

    By reallynicknametaken
    Simply put I get more diverse news from other free apps.
  • Wish there was a podcast

    By ?()6
    Love reading through the news. Only improvement would be a podcast to listen to on my commute to work.
  • Add audio!

    By SigepUt07
    Great app, great content. Please add audio support for the daily briefings (and Siri support so I can ask to have them read to me while driving/on the way to work).
  • Quick read

    By big AL G
    A good quick but thorough update on the world news.
  • It should also update mid-day.

    By Kryptos007
    Great in the morning, but it should also update mid-day.
  • Bit too short.

    By Sayf Abdeen
    I think it’s a great app, great news, just wish it could maybe have an extra article? Feels a bit too short.
  • Easy to read, efficient

    By Peri Rocha
    Really easy reads to start your day. The app works well and makes it easy to read, but I wished there was an iPad version, like the Economist app - reason why I'm not giving this 5 stars. I like the dark theme. Keep up the good work
