When you start the audio up after a break, the app often starts halfway through a story you’ve already heard. It’s very frustrating. The “track list” vs “playlist” feature is unnecessary and confusing. Sometimes the next story just won’t start. This app is often unresponsive to controls in my car. No other apps have this problem. In one case I hit pause, and when I hit play the audio from an ad started playing along with the story. Finally, the lack of a scroll bar in dark mode is a long overlooked feature. When you’re paying this much for a subscription to this newspaper, you expect the apps to work!

I used to love listening to The Economist audio edition until a particular feature was removed. I used to be able to organise my audio playlist in a specific order; the world this week, then the business section, then finance, and afterwards a few select articles chosen among the remaining sections. I was able to go through the edition and organise everything once, then start and stop listening with the confidence that the playlist remained in the order I prioritised. Now whenever I add to the audio playlist it's always ordered in the way The Economist is (The World This Week, Leaders, Letters, etc) and I can arrange the playlist to my priority, which I used to do for the past few I don't even want to bother with The Economist at all since I now have to either keep track of what I listened to manually and/or keep adding/removing to the playlist in order to listen while I'm doing other tasks. Very unfortunate. It would be VERY much appreciated if the feature to customise the order of the audio playlist is made available once again. Thank you.

The audio features have become less reliable and bugs more frequent over time. Since several versions ago, the tracklist/ playlist configuration options became non-functional (it would play the next article in the order no matter what tracks were selected or even downloaded). Then the audio was no longer developed to be handled by iOS as such, so Bluetooth controls stopped working. With the latest release, it will not even play more than one article at a time. It requires opening the app and manually playing the next one, which makes it useless when running or driving. I consume the Economist almost solely via audio edition when I commute or work out, and this decline is making it impossible to rely on it as my go-to news source, which is extremely disappointing because the journalism is great.

This is one of the best designed apps out there. I particularly like that it provides the option of selecting which stories you want to download in audio. The problem comes when you try to use third party listening devices like headphones with the app. The app is either non responsive to headphone commands or when you stop and then restart a story an ad will play on top of the story. A few times Apple’s music player came on instead of the app. This deficiency fundamentally impares my ability to use the app unless I have my phone on and in front of me, which is basically never.

I’ve been an Economist subscriber for many years. It’s expensive. This app continually boots me out, issues (especially downloaded audio) disappear without warning after I’ve downloaded them, and now I can’t even log back into my subscription because the Economist is having ‘technical issues’, and their backup solution is to try to charge me $7.99 for the issue I’m already paying for with an annual subscription. Considering the cost of that subscription, are you kidding?
