At the end of last week, weekly global news publication The Economist announced a new offering called The Economist Espresso. Designed to be a snapshot of the day’s most important news in business, politics and finance, the magazine is releasing the daily briefing via iPhone or Android smartphone apps.
As the mag’s editors wrote on their blog, the Espresso app is The Economist‘s first go at daily news in its 171-year history. They say reading the whole thing shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes in the morning and there are no links required to get the whole story. Editions for the Americas, Asia and Europe will be created by the pub’s editors each day.
