The Economist is now available on Android

The Economist's long awaited Android app is now available in the Android Market, nearly 10 months after the iOS app. Readers will now be able to get this weekly news magazine as single issues or as a free part of their print subscription.

It sounds like it might be worth getting. Content in the app draws on the months of experience from producing the iOS app, and it's been formatted to flow better on screens of various sizes.The app includes the audiobook version of the articles, and you can switch between text and audio on the fly.

The app is free, and readers get the editor's weekly selection of six must-read articles as  a freemium. You can buy either a subscription or individual issues ($6). Like most magazines, The Economist gives print subscribers free access to the apps while the subscription lasts.


About Nate Hoffelder (11472 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
