@kordumb I just went for the Kindle Edition. While reading their stuff on a website my suit some, I am trying to only use the browser for very specific tasks at very specific times. The experience on the Kindle is that much better as well.
@grayareas @kaa yes, you can definitely use the kindle app too. I enjoy the audio version of The Economist through their app so I’d miss that. Most Condé Nast magazines allow you to connect your subscription to Amazon and get the kindle version for free, was hoping that was the case here too.
@kordumb So it’s not. I’m frustrated that Amazon won’t let the Economist simply verify customers so that we could have both options for consumption.
@grayareas just to clarify to make sure I didn’t explain poorly the first time, if you subscribe with Amazon you can read on Kindle device and Kindle apps. But, I believe it’s The Economist who prevents you from connecting to Amazon if you subscribe through the Economist. I subscribe to the New Yorker through the New Yorker, and am able to connect it to Amazon so I can read it on a kindle device, kindle app, New Yorker app, New Yorker website, or print. Hopefully I didn’t make things more confusing..
@kordumb No, I understood you. But there’s a detailed comment on the Amazon product page making the argument that in this case it is Amazon’s issue. But that guy may be wrong for all I know. Says Economist is not allowed to verify subscribers with Amazon’s servers. 🤷🏼♂️
