The Economist for iPad app review


The Economist

Price: Free

The Economist by The Economist is available for your iPad so you can be on top of all the must-read features of the publication.

The app is free to download and with the download you're treated to free access to editor highlights. These are in fact a collection of six key stories from the weekly edition of The Economist. If you're a print and digital subscriber you'll have unrestricted access to the full print edition on your iPad each week.

The articles you'll find here focus on business, finance, current affairs from around the world, society, culture, science and technology, the arts, and media.

Each week when a new issue is released it will appear in your Newsstand folder. The new issues become available Thursdays at 9 PM London time. After you download the issue you can then read it offline.

Features of the app include being able to both listen to and read The Economist and easily switch between the two. You can also store back issues to read again at a later date.

Download the app for free then purchase a single issue or subscribe to a plan.

This latest version of the app includes improvements to the performance thanks to a number of bug issues.

The Economist was updated on Mar. 18, 2013 and currently has 1,354 customer ratings with an average rating of three out of five stars.

I found the content of this magazine to be very complete and well-rounded, giving me a look at all kinds of current topics and issues. As for the app itself, this was easy to use and I liked that I was able to read it offline after downloading it.

For: iPad with iOS 4.3 or later
