Gets the job done but has areas of improvement. Links to related articles result in opening pages within the app instead of within a browser. This makes it hard to open an article to read later after finishing expresso. Generally, the news from expresso seems slightly more biased than what is reported in the magazine. Maybe bias is hard to avoid when news has to be delivered in several sentences. Still a great overview though. Finally, grammar and reporting errors are more common than I'd like.

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.
