The Economist Comes to the BlackBerry PlayBook


The Economist website looks really sharp in the PlayBook browser but now they have taken things one step further with a PlayBook App. The app is really just a teaser app unless you have an Economist subscription (Digital or Print) though there is some free content available (Editor Highlights). Caching is also nice though I have not had a chance to test it out yet.

  1. This is a really good app especially if you are a subscriber. Much better than the android app. It also replicates to an extent the reading experience of the actual magazine which makes it pleasant to use.
