Londoner ,

Excellent publication. Good app. Needs audio!

I’ve been reading FA for years. This app works flawlessly on my iPhone. One request please: the website often includes audio. Could this please be added to the app with the option to download (like the economist).

Extra star now since audio added. Thanks!

Great app and content

Thought provoking and meaningful content condensed in an easy to use, nicely made app. I would recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the most pressing issues of our times. The subscription is certainly worth it!

Great app but ..

The audio version of the articles is very welcomed. Pls add a designated player so one can rewind or forward and listen whilst using other apps - sat nav or email etc.
