    I saw this on The Economist website, for those that are interested:

    EDIT: My apologies if this belongs in the iPad Apps section. I saw it too late.

    You can get the same content for free by subscribing to the RSS feeds, or by just using their website, but you can't view that content on the Economist app.

    This is great. I hope in the future they will give a discount if you opt out of the print edition. It always arrives 4 or 5 days late to me.

    EDIT: The app is very good and it's handy to be able to download the whole magazine to read offline. Also allows you to down load the audio edition. Well done, Economist!

    Everything will be digital eventually. I would expect to see the digital market share become 65% by the end of the decade.

    65% in a month and a half. Talk about a tight deadline. :D

    I requested that they release such a beast when the iPad first came out. YEEESSSS!!! Love it, I've been reading it on the train today. Finally, my favorite news magazine on my favorite device!

    Already my favorite app. I bought a digital subscription for $29/quarter to see if I miss buying the occasional paper copy. So far, I cant say that I will. Having the audio built in makes this a great app on iPhone too.
