  • Not bad, needs accompanying voice function in mandarin

    By SHOLA
    I like the content variety , fidelity of translation and simplicity of layout. It'd be really great to incorporate a human voice reading function. It'd probably attract a huge enthusiastic following of Chinese language willing to take up paid subscription !
  • Scroll issue

    By Evanzhao89
    Why the article goes top every time ever since I switch back to this app!!! I have to scroll down from the article's starting point to the content I was just reading. Do u know how annoying it is ?! It is the basic sense to keep where it is when user leaves the app. You idiot!

    It is very good and exactly what you'd expect. If they offered a read-aloud version in mandarin with professional voice actors I would buy a subscription today.
  • Ok translation, information not updated

    By Zhsimon
    The translations are in a good shape. However, The articles are not the newest. Most of the time, they are 2 to 4 months old, which you can find online for free too. In addition, the app only gives you five articles per week. Considering over 60 articles per week in the real economist magazine, the amount of the information given by this app is really limited.
  • Crash!

    By 如果我不在家我就在找小花花
    I can't open.
  • Please help my money back to my account

    By dream9612
    Please cancel my Chinese new year special order for three months ($14.99) immediately cause I mistakenly made both a year subscription and the Chinese new year special order at the same time....

    Frustrating that one cannot copy and paste words or more importantly characters from this app's articles.
