The ads just get worse and worse 1/5
By Tuff dude
Canceled subscription. The number of informative articles kept shrinking too much. Finally they overcharged my account and would not refund overcharge. Extremely poor customer service.
Poor Design 1/5
Barron's is great magazine for beginners & professionals. I am avid reader but very disappointed with the app. It's an poorly design app. I think real time analysis is great! Hope DJ redo this app or integrate well with other feeds like Apple news, Flip Board and other.
Barron's review 4/5
Would've been 5-stars, except app freezes when Barron's Next ad pops-up.
Good information. 5/5
The best investment source available 5/5
Excellent on the iPad or iPhone. Can't beat the sources or the variety of information provided. Excellent timing on all topics. Now the app is available on kindle same as iPhone or iPad i.e. Without the additional charge by Amazon.
Terrible App 1/5
Please fix the app! I complained earlier about the horrible changes to the font and spacing (too much white space between lines). Mimic the WSJ app font please.
Today, the app gets stuck on an ad that says Barron's Next. When I try to move from the first page of each article the ad appears and you cannot move from the page . Terrible!
What's with your ads??? 1/5
Get rid of them or let us skip over them your. Barron's Next (whatever that is) ad is a petfect example. Once it shows up you cannot move forward or back. It freezes the App. You have to start all over again. AND you never know when it is coming!!
Last update not working on iPad 1/5
By Surely 123456
Last week app worked fine. This week it locks up with the next gen. Not sure what is happening. I sign in and it will not let me read the full article. Get it together.
Decent but ads crash it 2/5
Decent app but constant Barron's ads freeze it & it becomes unresponsive. Paid subscription- enough w/ the ads.
Fix ad bug!! 1/5
By Cold freezz
Barron's Next ad constantly freezes the app!!!
Makes the App difficult to use.
Barron's NEXT ad crashes the app every time 1/5
Every time I read an ad for Barron's NEXT it crashes the app. App is now useless. Did no one test this software before releasing it?
Horrible publication 1/5
Horribly written articles terrible research they are typical financial media crooked corrupt and probably taking money under the table to write certain articles buying Barron's is flushing money down the toilet. I recently bought a puppy so that I could potty train him on the hard copy of Barron's. But seriously Barron's is of no use to investors DONT BUY!!!! My eyes hurt after reading it
By T Crowns
App has crashes frequently. Now stuck on their ad for Barron's next.
Ads Cause Screen to Lock 2/5
This has decent articles from time to time. Last update has ads that make it freeze. Correct or I will unsubscribe.
Used to be great app; can't read half of the articles because of ad for Barron's Next which dress app. Why am I subscribing if I am also getting these ads. This is way too expensive for such crap.
Non skippable ads 1/5
This week the app launched a new "feature", and ad (for itself) which locked the page. Only way to solve is close the app and then reopen. Are times really that tough guys?
Worth the money 5/5
I have always found the articles and research enlightening and have traded stocks with some success on it. Unlike the weekly paper , the digital format has almost daily updates. Well worth the money.
Double click ad bugs 1/5
The Barron's Next ads completely lock (freeze) the app, forcing me to quit the app, only to encounter the ad again and again. Can't use my paid subscription until this is fixed.
Great app and resource 4/5
I've been reading Barron's for nearly 30 years. I have always enjoyed that paper landing on my driveway on Saturday morning, now I enjoy getting access to the great articles even earlier.
Excellent Research and Insight! 5/5
I really enjoy my subscription to Barron's magazine... the research, insights, and world markets read is invaluable! Great job Barron's!
Great app 5/5
Really like it.
I find Barron's ontime and complete. I have traded stocks based on information obtained from these news releases.
Stop with the advertising 1/5
I pay for my subscription, your stupid advertising keeps crashing your app. Choose one, paid subscriptions or advertising. Not both, particularly when they make your product unusable. Get it together
Thoughtful articles, but the advertisements! 3/5
I enjoy the articles on Barron's, but when the advertisements take up literally 2/3 of the screen, leaving you to read a single column of text squeezed to the side of the page, it's very distracting and annoying.
Top Shelf 5/5
The insight and wisdom is second to none. The cutting edge of financial evolution!
Horrible ads 1/5
By Danny bg
Come on Barron's, your ads are out of control! I understand you need to make money, but when EVERY screen is 2/3 taken up by a moving ad, then it is just too much. I can't even concentrate on what I am reading. The quality of your magazine is getting diluted in my eyes. As a paid subscriber I find this strategy obnoxious and very short sighted.
...with every update comes new even more aggravating advertisements...
Good Luck Canceling your Subscription! 1/5
I signed up for the free 1 month subscription and was ready to cancel by the 2nd week of getting no use out of it. There's nothing within Barron's that I can't find on the bulk of other investing apps and websites. The true disappointment came when I realized that Barron's states on their website that you have to call into their 800 number to cancel your subscription (you can't do it online). I called in, and their rep told me I had to call Apple at 800 275 2273. I did that, and was on the phone with a rep for 17 minutes before he handed me off to a SENIOR ADVISOR to help me get the app off. After another 5 minutes, we finally figured it out.
Here are the directions for anyone else who wants to get rid of this scammy nonsense: Settings > iTunes and app store > Click on your Apple ID at the top > View Apple ID > Subscriptions > Cancel and Confirm and you're all set.
I've been investing for 5 years self taught started with 10,000 and amassed a individual fund of 120,000. Barron's have always been there to help with insight to flourish with short-term to long-term gains. WSJ and the likes also help with trends and falls. Play the buy game and play the short game.
Best Business-Financial App Ever 5/5
Excellent content and clean delivery!
Best writing 5/5
Barron's is the only reading I do every week.
Essential weekend reading 4/5
By Rob from Hollywood
After many years of daily WSJ reading I realized that I wasn't optimizing my time. I now combine weekday NYTimes audio podcasts while commuting or exercising and weekend Barron's. I find the digital version on my iPad perfect both while traveling and at home but the paper version assures me that I don't miss anything relevant. I'm a macro investor so I get enough broad economic coverage without subscribing to the Economist anymore and I like the columnists who give me their SWAG on the future. I've let my subscription expire a few times but suffer withdrawal after a few weeks. I have to admit that I did cancel the WSJ when I read one too many editorials by Karl Rove. The first few by Karl I considered comedy, I then realized that the editorial board was asleep at the wheel.
Nice business analysis 4/5
I start my day with real-time analysis at Barron's. Weekly macro/micro analysis and roundtables with experts are very informative
A must 5/5
As an advisor I read it every week religiously cover to cover
Too many ads 2/5
Too many ads taking up too much space, very distracting. The layout / formatting of the stories are poor -- each line is too short.
A must every week. 5/5
App is great, visually appealing and easy to navigate. Content is top notch, best writers in the industry. A definite must read every Saturday.
Excellent Job 5/5
This is how online news should be presented. My favorite publication! Great work!
Bait and switch 1/5
By Hans Blix
As soon as you start the app, it asks you to get paid membership. If you choose to use trail version, Apple pay pop up to ask you to sign for $15 a month membership to get one month trial. Otherwise you get no market data. Waste of time.
Would you please change the typeface and line spacing! 1/5
By Down and out empty pockets
OMG, Barron's please change the line spacing and typeface. The articles are great, but when I attempt to read them on my iPad I read fewer because the line spacing and font is deplorable!
Good but needs charts improvements 4/5
App is very good. But charts are not interactive. Also some sections of the print magazine is not there. They should enable flipping of pages like in Flipboard.. Overall good app.
Getting better 4/5
Could still be a bit easier to navigate to stories you want to see
I like it 5/5
As an active investor, Barrons' up to the minute reporting from the business and financial world is critical to my ability to keep up with that reality in an environment where by the very nature of the way our business culture is organized, Iam always going to be behind to some degree obtaining salient facts important to my investing success. Barron's gets me much closer to the information and more quickly than any other source I have used previously. It's really well done.
Great app 5/5
By Kiani Rumbo
Easy to read font.
Barrons rating 4/5
This app is user friendly and getting better. Current updates are very timely and thoughtful. Yea this app is with my time.
Great Market Info 5/5
I find this app offers relevant market ideas and refer to it frequently.
By Optimist 1318
My main source for deep thinking on the market. An amalgam of different ideas from many good sources. A broad view, not bullish or bearish, but both. A good source of investment ideas. A good investment!
Great recommendations and to the point 5/5
Great recommendations and to the point
Too many annoying and useless ADS
Love it!! 4/5
Great source of business info.
Good not great 4/5
What's missing is the data found in the print edition i.e. top stocks, most active, etc. for the week. Should not be a big deal to add some of those features.
