The Economist Espresso - Brief Morning News Update Reviews


Informative and stimulating.  Legal7718!#  5 star

A great way to start the day!!


Huge Improvement  Ategev  5 star

Finally opens on current day.


Fantastic knowledgeable information  Terro1r  5 star

Nice streamlined design with great content. The Economist can't be topped and Espresso delivers it in informative quick topics that keep one in the know.


Fantastic content nice presentation  Britbites  4 star

I do wish it was easier to view old articles though. A continuous scroll option would also be nice. One big page , keep scrolling...


Great morning read - a few things  Jsm1122  4 star

Logo needs to go back - very ugly currently. Second - the ads are becoming obtrusive - I'm already paying per month - beginning and end for ads seems fair - not during.

Lady Gallivant

Amazingly Easy to Keep Up-to-Date in World Events  Lady Gallivant  5 star

The information you get from this app is top notch (as expected of something from The Economist) and very easy to digest in less than 10 minutes. Keeping up on current world events is very important to me but I don't always have time to read through newspapers or listen for hours to NPR or BBC.


Great news summary  Drgretad  5 star

Written with the same insight and wit of the newspaper. Quick, easy and pleasant way to stay up to date. When relevant, news items contain a link to more in-depth articles from the newspaper.


Short, sweet, to the point.  VictorSlad  4 star

The UI is great and this app is very easy to read. My largest wish would be to allow users to pick topics and cater short stories to those topics but I appreciate the quick summaries of stories all over the world in this app.


The icon was better before  Kevindoyle1986  4 star

We have to go back!


Don't upgrade. The new version is terrible!  Sinimagebi  1 star

The new version is awful. We can no longer speed up audio in the app. My great grand ma reads faster than the audio speaker! Can the app developer use their brain when releasing a new version? I love The Economist magazine, but the app has been killing me!

Ken Paul

Welcome perspective  Ken Paul  4 star

I appreciate the range of topics, the quality of writing, and the measured tone of the publication. Not a cheap subscription (at around US$100/yr) but currently my favorite source.


First thing I read when I wake up!  Niviettina  5 star

I reach for my phone, check my calendar, and read Espresso! It is so wonderful to get caught up with global events in the comfort of my bed without feeling overwhelmed by sensationalism. Thank you Economist for the Espresso; I am literally addicted to it! 😉


Great summary of the days headlines  chazubell  5 star

Wonderful way to start the day reading the headlines and a summary of the news that will matter.


Fresh start  Aogborn  5 star

The perfect way to spend 15 minutes catching up on the rest of the world


Good morning read.  RPG1947  5 star

Interesting and informative vignettes of leading news stories.


Quick way to stay connected with the world  Dudududulu  5 star

My first reading in the morning. Love it


Perfect with AM coffee or PM ice cream  JDR.58  5 star

Like the print magazine, Espresso is an excellent alternative to both celebrity-focused nonsense covered by most US media. Well sourced, clearly written and on point, it has become my preferred daily news source.


Great start to the day  SailorDad  5 star

Love the app, first thing I read each day.

Radio Bill Frank

Daily digest of the top stories worldwide  Radio Bill Frank  5 star

I rely on Espresso for a capsule of the top stories of the day.


Great app and great content  Toppersan  5 star

My only gripe is that when I don't have an internet connection, it takes a long time to figure that out.
