The Economist Espresso for Android

By The Economist Newspaper Limited Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jan 8, 2015

The Economist Espresso delivers a daily digest of the world's news to your Android device each morning from the anonymous editors of The Economist, Britain's acclaimed weekly.

Pros

The Economist: Britain's slightly-right-of-center news digest cultivates a reputation for even-handedness and understatement, and it's rarely slipped from its high standards. Typically iconoclastic, it still calls itself a "newspaper," not a magazine.

International editions: Like the print content, The Economist Espresso publishes online editions for the UK, US, Asia, and so on.

Affordable: The Economist Espresso's subscription rates are lower than the beverage of the same name, generally speaking.

Cons

Pay up front: You must supply credit card data to activate the free 30-day trial, which automatically subscribes you when it expires.

Bottom Line

If you don't mind subscribing to The Economist, then The Economist Espresso is a great daily news app.
