Almost Perfect (bug report) 4/5
Overall, love this app! There is a bug when it comes to notifications. When you tap on one, it doesn't display he article but "an error has occurred" page.
Additionally, for whatever reason, this app doesn't make my Apple Watch vibrate when notifications are received. It's the only one that does this.
Finally, when will we see comments in the app for every article, as we can on the website?
Great search feature 5/5
Easy to search and find things.
Good app! 5/5

I like being able to read WSJ anywhere
By Hanging 57
I enjoy the app 5/5
I like the notifications I get on my Apple Watch. I have several news apps that I follow but I love that WSJ doesn't just have a rehash of the same headlines all of the other papers and news agencies do.
One of the best 5/5
It loads and respond to touch with no issues ever.
Henry's WSJ Review 5/5
By Henry Irwin Pesch
I am very pleased with the simplicity of the interface as well as how the content is broken down into different sections. A perfect on the go alternative to having a copy of the WSJ and certainly more tree friendly. I highly recommend this application ~ HIP
Timely and relevant news 5/5
By P vs. Z Girl
Daily quick updates on domestic and international happenings are a great morning start
Time wasting garbage 1/5
By V big Bloomberg fan
Love WSJ and using its website. Recently website forces you to switch to this worthless app. Shame!
Good source of news 4/5
It would be nice to have more articles with public access.
Four Stars 4/5
By Gordy McZilla
App is infinitely better than it used to be. Now there just needs to be a feature that blocks all of the awful opinion articles so I can read the world class news without the terrible straw man opinion fluff pieces that the WSJ runs to keep the bosses at News Corp. happy.
Wsj app 5/5
Great content as always and the app is very easy to use!
Pretty good 4/5
Very in depth. App caches that is what I like.
Latest update does not work!! 1/5
By Long time WSJ customer
When you download the daily edition and try to call up an article it opens up the page that offers a trial subscription for purchase. Can't really use!! WSJ either does not have a very IT firm or they don't QC their app updates before they update. I am using an iPad.
Long time WTJ customer.....
Great read --- worst app 1/5
PLEASE FIX ... So that Automatically downloads latest issue when you open app. Also, that app downloads entire WSJ so you can read on train. App keeps crashing.
WSJ App 5/5
Informative and easy to navigate
Super handy, especially since it is the vehicle that delivers the Wall Street Journal.
Mr. Murdoch 5/5
Excellent news and great sourcing. I've replaced the Dallas morning news and is on my tab ahead of the Drudge Report. Keep it up!
Great application 5/5
By True Lefty
This app is great! It gives me what I need. It's easy to navigate and has not crashed since I started using it.
On the spot when news happens! 5/5
The Wall Street Journal provides fast yet thorough coverage of business and political events.
By Worst predictions ever
Decent presentation and interface 4/5
Nothing visually spectacular but the content is direct from main portal which is awesome.
No to audio ad! 3/5
Please stop playing audio ad automatically when reading an article- really annoying
Accenture Ads 2/5
I do not like these new ads. It is not user-friendly to make a paying subscriber have to turn a page in a different way than all of the other pages. I can already tell who is seeking my attention when the page first appears.
A great app compared to other major papers 5/5
Speedy enough with clear layout. Excellent graphics and resolution. For a person who still lives a "real" newspaper (think old school large format paper), this is the closest yet most user friendly take on such through an app.
Your ads sabotage your journalism 2/5
The ads, especially video and slide-show are extremely annoying, deliberately distracting one from what he is reading. Why put such care and expertise into doing good journalism if you are going to then prevent me from reading it?
Your video ads also devour my cell data allotment, making the app expensive or unusable.
Does the Grey Lady good! 5/5
Or is it well? Wait, is the the Gray Lady?
Me like app.
Go use now.
Portability says it all 5/5
I prefer the digital version because my phone is always with me. I allow, and enjoy, the push notifications which keep me up on breaking stories.
Great app 5/5
Always with me. I can read an article whenever I have a moment.
WSJ The best newspaper with no rival 5/5
Each time I read the WSJ I want to thank the writers for their wit and excellent writing styles; so here it is: Thank you for this daily gift.
I dig it 5/5
I like it, why do you think I'm paying for it? Now, stop asking me to rate it...
I assume you get the WSJ anyway ... 5/5
so why would you not get the app? While I love the physical paper, having it on my phone and iPad is just brilliant.
Content is king and mobile app is the throne 5/5
Can't live without my WSJ. In Luddite form daily with breakfast, digital at work and mobile when I'm actually living. Nicely presented sections and easy functionality make it my favorite news app.
Technically adequate, content is thin 4/5
As software this is a fine app. This latest version is quick, smoother, no complaints so far.
But I also see the print version from time to time, and I can tell they withhold bits and pieces of content that would benefit the app edition, without compromising the print edition. Scope is ok in the app, but the editors need to be a bit more generous with depth. Maybe just a few more tidbits per section. Particularly tech and automotive. I remember the print edition used to have a car oriented section on... thursdays, was it? Be nice to see that again. And whoever has taken over from Mossberg.
As it is, I'm on the fence about the app's value point. One thing i am certain about is that I cannot get the print edition ever again. No going back to dead trees, so come on, Mr. Murdoch, you can afford to throw the app some more bones.
Content not available despite repeated attempts to reload 1/5
Rating is for the app, not the content. 2/5
By Doc Loya
I'm a longtime follower of the Wall Street journal and this review is on the quality of the app, not the quality of the articles (which is not as good as it was 15-20 years ago before Murdoch took it over, but still excellent).
The app itself is fairly rough and buggy. Problems run the gamut from broken links (select an article and it instead sends you to an unrelated section of articles), inappropriate password prompts (you're already logged into the app, but some articles link to a webpage viewer within the app, which then prompt you to log in before you can read the article), to missing sections (I LOVE the daily book review section and I can't find it anywhere in this app). Load times are also unacceptably long. When first opening the app, the previous list of articles (from the last time you opened it) displays for nearly 10 seconds on average before the current edition loads. That's a long time!! There is also an annoying feature that constantly inserts new articles or reorganizes the "top stories" and "most popular" sections that make it hard to know whether you've read all the articles in a section. I've even had a couple instances where I went to open an article, but then new content got shoved under my finger just in time for me to open the wrong article. I don't think WSJ, which is not exactly known as the most late breaking news in the world, is constantly generating that much new material. It just keeps reshuffling everything to make it appear that way.
I would love it if there was an option that would organize content to more closely mirror the paper itself. Call me a creature of habit, but there is something just right about the clever mix of top stories and off-beat news on the paper version's front page. This format has been carefully designed and preserved for decades for good reason. Like a good mixtape, all the seemingly random selections actually gel together nicely as they are very intentionally curated. It would be nice if an optional view gave a reader that kind of organization.
Needs a means to copy link to articles 4/5
By Dean Anderson 56
There is no "copy" option to share a link on, say, facebook.
There is a "share to facebook" option, but that requires giving the app my facebook password, giving away all my contacts, etc in the process. Yeah, no thanks. I'll copy a link and paste it to facebook or my references file.
My go-to newspaper 5/5
I never miss reading the WSJ. Every morning it's WSJ and coffee. The insightful, timely, and accurate articles cover the broad range of issues a modern country and it's people need. The APP is easy to use and search. Often the Journal is quoted on the radio and I can quickly find and read the whole original article. I'm a iPhone guy and the APP works well even on the smaller space.
Content makes it worthwhile 3/5
Personally I find the normal WSJ mobile web pages easier to read (iPhone 6s+) because they support 'reader view', which eliminates all the peripheral clutter and presents info in a no nonsense font. I can also email content faster to colleagues this way.
Why can't reader view be included in the WSJ app?
Great app for reading the WSJ 5/5
Works and easy to navigate
Bad app 1/5
By Grotty tattoo
Constant refreshes. Please get the right people to design your app and roll out your content in the format your users want to see it in.
Remove your stupid ads from pages of articles in the mobile app. We pay you for not feeding us ads. Now you can't even scroll through it if your finger lands on the ad itself - pathetic!
Easy to use!! 4/5
Easy to use just would like to get more from Apple Watch Version....
Fabricated News that is reeking Havoc 1/5
I have followed WSJ for a long time now. I have always enjoyed having them as my #1 go-to source for news ever since CNN became...well...ridiculous. But now WSJ has become so possessed by this PC culture cancer too, that is unbearable as well. Now they just blatantly fabricate stories that have such devastating effects, that by the time people truly investigate and see how false their publications truly are...it's too late. For instance, the whole scheme they have pulled on YouTube. WSJ is quite clever I must say. Doing what they did to make big advertisers pull from YouTube and in-turn make themselves seem as a more viable and trustworthy option for advertisers, is brilliant. But injustice won't remain for long, and though the damage has been done. True justice will be served.
WSJ brings top content in a great app 5/5
Read this app a few times a week and it will pay off dividends. The app design is terrific and great to use. 10/10.
User Friendly 5/5
Well done 5/5
By Slim Pumpkin
Great app. It is easy to navigate and always with my device.

LOVE THIS APP.
Good reader 5/5
Still the best quality financial read. After a year of trying many, it is the only MUST have news app.
WSJ a Great App 5/5
Allows you to read current and past issues whenever you want. Sometime even tomorrow's before it's delivered.
