The Economist Espresso - Brief Morning News Update Reviews


Great App  tbty23  5 star

Well curated, relevant, and concisely presented stories


Fantastic  PacPix5  5 star

Perfect for a quick review of the news before work. Much more informative than headline skimming, but not as time consuming as reading full news articles.

A Quick Jolt of Reality  Music freak 231  5 star

This is like that first cup of coffee in the morning. It opens your eyes to important events going on around the world, so you can check them out in detail later. A great way to start the day.

Hayley Carlotto

Good content and easy to use  Hayley Carlotto  5 star

I read this every morning. Quick and easy way to get my share of unbiased global news for the day.


I like the format and ease of use  Lmerrill13  4 star



Battery hog  spacemn_spiff  1 star

I like the idea of an daily briefing of the news, but for the things that this app does, pull text from the server, it consumes a lot of power. It consumes about 1% battery every minute or so. And the phone gets warm too. This app needs bug fixes.


Succinct, Relevant writings  Sparkycontrols  5 star

I love waking up with Espresso! In less than ten minutes I have a synopsis of relevant news.


It's all in the name  Emlieg  5 star

Excellent app and format for short pithy news deliver red first thing in the morning to fit right into your routine, just like a good espresso.


Enjoy the app  Orthoguy5  5 star

Mike Pocarovsky

Makes the morning!  Mike Pocarovsky  5 star

It seems this is the only news outlet that is not stuck on a loop and actually covers international news in perfect bite size snippets. My morning coffee sipping is now synced with Espresso!


Great App  Cyclistbrah  5 star

I read the new briefs each morning. The app is reliable and intuitive. One feature that I'd love to see is a "breaking news" notification for international events immediately upcoming or presently happening.

Don Norent

Simple, Effective App  Don Norent  5 star

Does exactly what it promises and does it well. Great quick read in the morning.


Invaluable  Azisco  5 star

This is my favorite perk of subscribing to TE. The writing is concise, the articles span the globe, and the experience feels very streamlined.

This app is actually a good app if you are interested in the type of things they got in this app I'm just not but I'm not everybody sooo......


Don't get suckered!  MamaHausHouse  1 star

Trying to cancel this is nearly impossible! I keep getting the runaround - it's ridiculous!


Pithy content selection with helpful links  NYTinCT  5 star

Overall, a quick look at the news with pointers to related stories from The Economist. The one annoyance is the failure to jump to the current day on open-an odd miss in a daily news app.

Mandad OR

Great news summary  Mandad OR  5 star

Diverse range of topics with the facts summarized and no additional fluff or unnecessary speculation.


Great Content!  JacqueCat  5 star

The content of Espresso is terrific: a snapshot of the world's daily news. I also love the smooth user interface. I do not always take the time to watch the videos, but those I have watched are engaging and well-made. I have not experienced any of the bugs reported by other users.
