Love the content & the newly added much needed features are great. I can also get behind the new ads as I want this publication to exist for a long time & hence hopefully turn a healthy profit. But the bugs like constant crashing when selecting text or performing other actions, the long loading times & unresponsiveness, the horrible audio player & the fact that the app is unable to remember where I last left off are unacceptable. Please fix this. The old app lacked many features, but it worked.

I'm an economist fan for years. What i miss in the app are the qualifying subtitles of the articles within the weekly tab an also for some articles in the home tab. For quite some articles, the primary title gives only a rough idea of the content. Being required clicking each article once is not an easy way browsing an issue. I'm the past, there has been an app providing all qualifying subtitles for the weekly edition. Why wasn't it continued? Why not add the feature to the app? Thanks!

I love the content (90% of the time). Listening to articles is a fantastic feature. Though would have liked to edit the queue. But there is something very strange with the apps. Saved articles are not synced to my iPad. So I either have to search for them again or send the links to myself. Also, in the last few weeks (maybe months) scrolling between "the world in brief" pages has become rather unpleasant and requires a few tries.

What's new

What have we been working on?

This update allows you to build a tracklist for narrated audio articles, adding tracks to the end of the existing list or the existing article.

You can build the queue from the ‘Weekly’ tab for individual articles, whole sections or the entire edition.

We’ve also fixed bugs and made small improvements.
