Since the last update the app crashes every single time I start it. Also, I'm missing the possibility to change the audio speed like on the iOS version. The latest version is full of bugs and the navigation between articles is frustrating. It was better a few versions back, now even on the iOS it got worse...
Absolute rubbish. Cancelling my subscription if they don't fix this mess. Constantly downloading. Doesn't save old issues. Doesn't remember where you left off and keeps restating at the beginning. Not understanding what was wrong with the previous version.
What were they thinking? Old app was fine. This piece of garbage repeatedly locks up, does not remember what article I was on... what a mess. Someone should be fired
The content is world-class. Yet the app is total rubbish. After the last update it crashes everytime I start it. It shuts down in the middle of listening to an article. You can't start reading an article and listen to it - the audio editon starts always at the first article of an issue. And the technical support is very feeble, as can be seen how all complaints here have been comprehensively ignored. Disappointing.
The old version would remember where I left off with listening to the audio. This one doesn't even know what article I last listened. Stop making things prettier if it means losing functionality.
I liked the old version better - don't know why they needed to change it to this more drab isometric one. Also, it's crashed a few times and I don't know why. Five stars for The Economist. Three for their app.
