I have paid the subscription fee for a year, and the app keep showing I didn't subscribed and unable to view the content. Contacted with the app developer, they can't help but only apologize and told me they already escalate the problem to respective department. It has been two weeks, both Google Play and Economist said they are unable to refund. A terrible experience!

The app needs to be improved. I downloaded 30 articles of an issue; I changed the language; after I changed back, I need to download it again. The Chinese & English language display is not great. Reader need to jump between one page and another again and again.

Perfect app to go through different articles.Very much ease when it comes to change the font size, background which enables better readability.Text to speech is a bonus feature which provides complete detail about the article without even looking at it.Great work by developers.
