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.
