Why the hate? I'm not particularly interested in most of the content, but it's free, so you just browse and only read the stuff you're interested in. As for the layout, I have a note 3, and I can see that it doesn't use the entire screen well, and the font is too small in the issue-browsing buttons at the bottom. Also, it doesn't make sense that you need to keep the menu for past issues at the bottom even as you are scrolling through the articles of an individual issue... a back button would suffice, and android has one
Good content/functionality needs work 1) disable suspending the device while reading an article 2) if you don't do 2, at least take the user back to the article they were reading after un-suspending the device. Right now it goes back to the cover
Great content killed by crappy app The content is great. The app itself has really gone downhill. UI is dated, buggy, articles will not scroll. It is clear the Economist focused on iOS rather than Android.
Horrible, just horrible. It is a horrible port from iOS, and it just doesn't work. Android has its own design guidelines and guess what, they work wonderfully when apps use it. It baffles me that a magazine of high standards has such a poor app. Is it the old prejudice of iPhone versus Android? To the editor in chief: have you ever used this and do you consider it is up to scratch? Hire new developers. If this is the Android app you can publish, there should be no app at all. Shameful.
Slow and stupid navigation Slow to load, infrequent new content, and plain dumb navigation makes this app unworthy of The Economist brand. Needs and overhaul.
Good concept let down by bugs Keeps restarting when reading articles consequently I haven't managed to finish one yet
Bug fixes, based on feedback
