    "Great Content On An Accessible iOS Reader"


    The Economist, a high quality publication, has brought out the best version of its app yet, with great free Editor's picks and colorful, easy-to-navigate full editions for paying members.


    You can now listen to issues, which is a great way to catch up without any effort. Offline reading means you can keep up-to-date even without WiFi or 3G. It's handy to be able to access back issues from a year ago too (for research perhaps). It's even compatible with Apple Watch!


    At £4.99, the cost is high for single issues. We found the audio version quite slow and patronizing, though some may appreciate the relaxed pace.
