    "The Androidified Economist"

    Whether you're subscriber, follower or just you don't even know The Economist, this app is a good way to enjoy its content from your Android. Of course there are difference: if you're subscriber you'll have access to all the content. If you aren't, you will have free access just to an editor's highlights, a compilation of articles (but no worries, that selection is interesting enough).

    Download each week's issue to your device to read it offline. If you aren't subscriber and you want to read the full issue, you can buy it from the Android market (it costs around $6). Swipe to turn page (to the next article) or download audio option to listen to it. Switch layout (night/day) to black and white (better black to save battery). Change font size, share articles or lock screen orientation.

    Enjoy from now of The Economist free content by downloading the app. If after checking the full index an article that spark your interest, go buy it and get the full version of the magazine. Directly from the Android market. It seems that some users have noticed forcecloses or device heating. We didn't, so we can say that happens in all device. Recommendable app.
