    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 as that is not the only tablet out there. Just a thought!

    Not Compatible with Nook Simple Touch

    Beware - the economist is 'not compatible' with Nook Simple Touch. When I bought my Nook I specifically asked if I could read the economist on my Nook - I was assured this would be possible. Now I am being told it is 'not compatible'. NOT HAPPY!

    Best newspaper/magazine on the market

    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.

    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.

    incredibly good. best magazine there is

    I can't recommend this enough. Unbiased, technically excellent. The world coverage lets me stay abreast of what's going on outside the US and the US coverage is nice because they're not all wrapped up in the politics. No fluff.

    Unbelievable

    I paid for the nook subscription, then it never appeared in my Nook library...after reading about the numerous problems with magazine purchases and the nook online, I'm done! Who has the time to spend hours figuring out what should be a simple process...Nook and B&N need to get it together...otherwise the IPAD revolution deserves to win, and I hate Apple!

    One of the best, maybe THE best

    An authoritative, non-partisan, intellectual voice on world issues/events.
    Please make this available for NOOK Simple Touch!!!

    People need to stop putting customer reviews for the economist on here, it is misleading. The Economist is great, the Economist {Nook Magazine} is not.

    I'm not sure who's fault it is, but customers should not have to pay for 2 subscriptions - i.e. one for the print/digital and another for the Nook. Unless you only read the economist at home, or you carry your Nook everywhere, go with a normal Economist print/digital subscription - it is more versatile.

    It was well put together.

    I have a subscription to this for now. I read a few articles that might actually be relvant with my Economics class. I needed to page through this publication and last week's issue was definitely worth devoting the time to.

    The current way it shows up on my W8 machine is great - I've rarely had formatting issues. HOWEVER, the fact that I have to pay twice is criminal for the print subscription. Please get this fixed.

    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.

    Good Magazine

    This magazine had alot of insightful concepts and projected a very positive scenario for many companies and countries. Unfortunately, it did not have what I was looking for at this time.

    I love my Nook Simple Touch, and respect The Economist. Unfortunately, the Economist isn't supported by NST. ...sigh.

    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.

    Ridiculous

    I held off getting a reader for a long time. Never really understood what they were useful for. My brother got me a nook for christmas. I was like. Ok, well it would be convenient to get the economist on it. It's not supported. That is beyond insane.
