Clumsy interface, insufficient data, no comparison tools
The purpose of an app like this is not just to browse through it, but rather to be able to compare data amongst countries; however the interface will only let you see one country at a time, and you really need a notepad to make comparisons. There needs to be comparison tools and chart making tools. Come-on, The Economist, you’re great at making charts, what happened here?
My other beef is that there needs to be additional data in the Economy section, including median household income (GDP per capita is not that useful) and maybe even the GINI coefficient.
e.g., <<Rankings:Economics:Trading Places:Biggest Exporters>> has mostly zeros.
Paid for it but cannot use subscription
What is going on?? I paid for the subscription but the app will not let me access the unlocked content. I don’t even know what is the recourse for this. Be angry that The Economist just stole a cup of coffee from me? I cannot recommend this app unlike you enjoy getting ripped off.
