Overall I really like the idea of this app. I enjoy the bite size chunks of information across the world and the additional links on complex topics to longer economist reads. I think it costs too much for what it is... you're basically paying $1 per 100 words. And you still have ads! And honestly it's a bit biased, dissapointingly. Most obnoxious of all is the quote of the day at the end of the spiel, which is 95% if not more a quote from a man that is taken out of context. Really unnecessary.

This app is a wonderful way to stay current on world events without having to watch the news or filter through unverified articles shared by acquaintances online. The columns are somewhat editorialized (which I find humorous), but it also reveals the underlying biases of the journalists. Despite it carrying a slant (like any news outlet does), I will continue to log in for its quick, easy-to-digest updates on world news.

Good app. 9/11/2019 update, quite some time ago they deleted the financial markets data and it has never returned, of course the subscription price wasn't reduced to compensate for losing that data. 10/15/21 They finally returned the financial data a while ago. Still has a very left leaning outlook. Not very open to ideas that go against what is politically correct. Although I wish they were less biased, they still have a good coverage of the world so I haven't yet canceled.
