  • World in Brief is repeated in Today’s Agenda

    By Abyss312
    The Espresso was good earlier, reading it used to give a concise and brief updates. But now I can see that the items in ‘World in Brief’ is repeated again ‘Today’s Agenda items’ with more or less same wordings. Why should I read this twice? This beats the purpose of the ‘Espresso’ app itself.
  • Expresso

    By LaManchaPlacep
    It is Wednesday morning in California and my Expresso is still showing highlights for Monday!! Time to cancel my subscription!? This is the third time recently this has happened.
  • Why did the currency and commodity page go away?

    By aacarbob
    Currency screenshot still shows in App Store. Recent changes have not improved the app. It was the fastest way I have found keep track of world events. Would like a less slanted take on the news, but at least they are up front about their slant. Many links to other economist related stories, helps also.
  • Something’s missing...

    By BLPDC
    ...oh yeah! THE MARKETS AND CURRENCIES PAGE! Come on, Economist. I cannot fathom why you pulled the Markets and Currencies page out of Espresso. If you’re not bringing it back, you owe it to your subscribers to explain why. And if you are not bringing it back soon, for whatever reason, be prepared to start bleeding subscribers...including me. Bring it back!
  • When will we get the market / commodities back

    By Swiss Pete
    I love this app, I don’t mind which order it comes in, what’s missing are the market / commodity indices. When will they return
  • What a ripoff. Shameful.

    By crankyprof
    I’ve been a subscriber of The Economist for more than a decade. I recently renewed my subscription in the new iPad app, and discovered that I can no longer access The Economist content on the Web or on Android devices. This has always been possible: I subscribe to “The Economist”, not “The Economist on iOS devices only”. When I renewed, there was no disclaimer, no warning, not indication whatsoever that I will only be able to access my subscription on iOS devices. Is this a ploy to double-charge your subscribers, trying to get readers to pay for the same content separately on iOS and Android? Or just incompetence? Either way, this brings shame to the legacy of The Economist.
  • Overall Alright

    By AndHesGone
    The app could improve in the following areas: 1. Where did the market data go? 2. Allow audio playback like the actual app. Don't know why they didn't include that in this.
  • Notifications

    By krahslucas
    I really liked this app, but over the past few months, the daily notifications have been glitching. I just don’t get them anymore. It really ruins the experience.
  • Where’s my Cocoa?

    By kcreads
