The Economist is one of the best business and financial newspapers in the world and after it has released an official version on the Windows Store for Windows 8 users, the number of those who’ve downloaded it has increased rapidly. And now it has received a much welcome update.
We’ve talked about the official The Economist app for Windows 8 on Wind8Apps a while ago, so feel free to go ahead and read the entire review if you’re interested in more details. But if you have already installed it, then you are probably interested in hearing what exactly the update is all about. The official changelog only says that general improvements and bug-fixes have been deployed but, as always, I’ve went on the Windows Store and discovered that now pages flip much faster when reading especially an old edition. I have tested this myself.
The Economist on Windows is now even better
Besides this, of course, the app now feels much more stable than before and hearsay has it that it is also consuming less memory. So, you just need to follow the download link at the end of the article to make sure you get the latest version and enjoy your favorite business and financial newspaper from the comfort of your Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 device.
The best way to read The Economist on your Windows device. The app is free to download and includes free access to the editor’s picks – a weekly selection of articles from each week’s edition of The Economist. Digital and print subscribers to The Economist receive unrestricted access to each week’s full print edition by signing in with their economist.com e-mail address and password. Non-subscribers can register for an economist.com account to read the free editor’s picks.
And if you own a Windows RT device, like Nokia Lumia or Surface, then you will be happy to hear that it is available for you, as well! Also, since now all Windows 8 apps run on Windows Phone, any newsletter that you buy will be synchronized on your Windows Phone device, as well. Cool!
