Economister - mobile optimised news reader for The Economist magazine with Offline Reading

- Text-only article view for fast loading and no distractions
- Download and save articles for offline reading. Great for when you're on the Tube/Metro/Subway or on a plane.
- No subscription required: articles are free from The Economist's website

PLEASE NOTE: All content displayed within this app is copyright The Economist Newspaper Limited. The app itself is my creation, but the content displayed by the app (the articles) are written by The Economist.

I found the official Economist app a little fussy so I made this app instead. It presents the articles in an easy to read format with none of the distractions present on the website. And, because it doesn't load the pictures, the articles load much faster, too. The pictures are replaced with links, so you can still open them in the browser. There is also the option to download an entire section and save it to your SD card, which is perfect for me personally as I spend a lot of time on the London Underground, where I have no internet access. No subscription is required because it uses the articles that are freely available on the website.

Hopefully you will find it as useful as I do.

Whats new

    [18/01/13] Fixed crash caused by new website layout and added China RSS feed.
    - Can now download multiple RSS feeds and articles at once by ticking the sections in the main menu, then pressing Menu -> Download Selected Feeds.
    - Can delete old articles that are no longer accessible by the app (because they are older than the RSS feed). Menu -> Settings -> Delete orphaned articles.
    - Fixed a bug where the list would shoot back to the top if you checked your notifications.
