The Economist is simply the best weekly newspaper on the market. The articles are great, and the in-depth reports are even better. The nook color version is wonderful because I now get the publication when it is released. In the USA I would previously receive it up to four days (it is published on Thusdays, but subscription services for the print version do not concider it late until after 7 days). This is a problem as it is a news paper and getting it late makes is almost useless.

Really amazing print subscription - wish I had free access on my NOOK

I am a long time subscriber of the print Economist. With many of my other print subscriptions I am able to get them also on my NOOK for free. The Economist does not include the NOOK subscription with the print version. I suggest they include it the way they do for iPad ...
I am a long time subscriber of the print Economist. With many of my other print subscriptions I am able to get them also on my NOOK for free. The Economist does not include the NOOK subscription with the print version. I suggest they include it the way they do for iPad as that is not the only tablet out there. Just a thought!

    Print Subscribers Do Not Have Free Access

    Because I am a print subscriber I can get free access to the digital version on my iPad, but I cannot get free access on the NOOK. I would buy the NOOK if this worked.

    Format

    The magazine is not formated for the nook. I found it difficult to read without zooming in and this required scrolling around to see the whole page

    Not formatted for Nook

    Reading this on a Nook is annoying. The formatting appears to be made for the iPad, and using 'Article View' is worthless as the whole point of using a Nook Tablet or Color is to enjoy the visual layout & design of a real magazine. Text-only editions are worthless.

    Bad app

    This is one of my favorite magazines but this format makes it very frustrating. One's only option is to plow ahead page by page, no
    searching the issue.
