Great but room for improvement 4/5
Look, I love the WSJ. My one issue is that it could be snappier or more responsive, especially when in areas of degraded connectivity. Often my app will freeze or time out when I load it in my office that has significant signal impairment. I’d be interested in an app that would prioritize loading text information and allow me to start reading while multimedia loaded.
Full newspaper on my phone 5/5
I have had a subscription to wsj for almost two years now and I love it. It’s the entire paper on my phone.
Worth every penny 5/5
Articles are well written and informal. Their opinion section has been consistently insightful and rounded. Journalism at its best!
It is getting better. 3/5
By Noel’s Apple
This app is getting better with each update although it can be frustrating at times.
Needs improvement 2/5
Most articles seem fair and balanced, but some articles seem bias. It's like reading something CNN would put out.
Good service 5/5
Nice organization for each article and help to relate previous stories
App doesn’t refresh very quickly. Otherwise it is the most unbiased source of hard news left.
The WSJ App is Crap! 1/5
By TS Glendale
I've had this app for several years, but the recent versions of it have just made it all but unusable. What should happen is that while my ipad is plugged in charging, and connected to wifi overnight, it should download today's issue (two in fact, as I have it set). Instead, when I open the app or click on a headline banner notification, it spins and spins as I wait and wait and wait for it to load. I have triple checked my settings, and they are correct. I've found many times while reading an article, the delay is for it to load an ad. I don't mind seeing ads while I read the paper - I understand how the business model works. But don't expect me to WAIT while you load an ad. Terribly slow and frustrating.
Love it 5/5

What makes the Economist out standing is it writers. Unbiased, accurate and detailed. This news magazine should be part of everyone’s weekly reading wether your 9 or 90.
Keep up the good work.
I subscribe to the daily hard copy.
Can I receive the electronic copy without charge?
WSJ - Great App - very easy to navigate 4/5
However, my big complaint other than the very high cost of the subscription is that often times when I click on the app directly or quick on an article that is on link in an email that takes me to the Wall Street Journal and asked me to login again. I’m constantly finding I’m logging in all the time. There should be a way that remembers username and password no matter how you going to the Journal.
Thumbs up. Informative content! Would like to cite, but limited.
Same concern, but when I am on FB, I have to sign in with each story. I understand the bottom line reasoning, but as a response, I tend to ignore stories in my newsfeed.
So, personally, the app. is awesome. I wonder . It is more difficult now, rather than the past to properly cite. Just a muse.
Intrusive ad 1/5
This is about the WSJ app, not the otherwise great content.
What happened to the WSJ app? In the most recent update it starts to show whole screen takeover ad. Why would WSJ interrupt their paying users so much?
In addition to whole page takeover ads, the app often crashes on the saved articles tab. The response time from opening up a saved article is so long that I almost give up on saving articles for later anymore. If I cannot open up a saved article, what’s the point of saving an article for later?
You billing is hideous 4/5
I like the app, but month after month you cut me off for days at a time. My credit card is billed for this privilege.
Love it 5/5
My only news source
Works just dandy 4/5
That pretty much sums it up!
Works well 5/5
By Mark Mangicaro
Loads fast. Well organized. Easy to use.
iPad interface lacking 3/5
Issues I have are with the app and not the WSJ content itself. The readability in the article view on iPad is poor due to the text being broken into three columns in a clunky way, with wide margins between them. I assume this is attempting to recreate the physical newspaper feel for old-timers, but it requires far too much line scrolling with a mere four words per row. Developers should take a readability hint from Apple News, or follow the Kindle app model and allow for user customization of words per line in the text menu.
The "What's News" content laid out in a roughly chronological stream is a good modernization until you scroll beyond the first page and encounter more three-column, wide-margin clunkiness. Why abruptly stop the appealing graphical interface? Why does content stop on page three rather than allowing you to continue scrolling further back in time?
The article view on the iPhone is actually much better with continuous scrolling and plenty of images. Why not take advantage of screen real estate on iPad and replicate this with TWO columns?
Used to be the best 1/5
It’s now very slow, especially when trying to open saved articles. Very disappointed
And why not merge saved articles with those on the full wsj.com site?
Love it 5/5
By Curtis The Great
Very fair and balanced
Best News App 5/5

By FDA 805
Timely, thorough, thought provoking and comprehensive.
I'd like the layout to more closely resemble the layout of the actual paper. Yes
Excellent News Source 5/5
I love this App and it and a Fox App are my favorites
Love it! 5/5
Love the WSJ APP!
Excellent app. Best content. 5/5
By Right Wing Nutter
I got this app for the content, not the technical sophistication. But I've discovered an app that is as easy to use as a newspaper, without having to come up with creative things to do with old newsprint.
Really enjoy this app 5/5
I still enjoy the newspaper but have begun to enjoy the electronic version just as much.
I've never had any problems the app starting as well
Simple question, how do I update my account? 1/5
Getting really frustrated on the ap because I can't update my credit card for subscription. Why not make it easy?
Now it takes me to app but asks me to join.
WSJ review 5/5
Best news available that is unbiased 5/5
Excellent newspaper. Every business man and woman should read it
Timely, easy to access news 5/5
The WSJ app is more than just a mobile paper. Stories and information are logically grouped, alerts are important and timely. I use this app every day.
Reporting well done 5/5
Always enjoy the WSJ. Reporting is well done and the articles are timely. I actually trust the Wall Street Journal versus most other news outlets.
Perfect for me. 5/5
Great app. Perfect for me
The app is the best it’s ever been 4/5
By Loyal reader in WI
The app works really well now. The last thing to fix is that some articles ask me to sign in to see the content...when I am already signed in. Frustrating!
Average - does not provide insight from a decade ago 3/5
By Frank Bilek
The WSJ app is easy-enough to use. I recall the Journal (print version) when the journalism produced did not require flashy color photographs.
As with most websites, the advertisement “gotchas” are annoying as this delays and interrupts my reading. Overall, the quality of my reading experience has diminished. The journalism of 2017 no longer holds to the truth of the matter as much as the “flash” of selling the topic.
Use this app everyday 5/5
By auto engineer
This is the paper I read each day and this great app makes it easy. One particular feature missing is the ability to define words. It appears that this feature available on iPad is not allowed on WJS and is keeping me from quickly increasing my vocabulary.
WSJ is listening 5/5
I am happy to report that the app is now working fabulously. Nov 20, 2017
I wrote a negative review awhile back. Afterwards, I found other app users were also complaining. Well, I am happy to say that WSJ has been listening. Still have a few minor glitches, but this app behaves much better.
If wireless connectivity is spotty, app seems to loop and becomes unresponsive. Would be better if it gave me a choice on how to proceed.
Otherwise, app is working very well
Fix the bug with alert link to content 3/5
By wsj sp
Good alerts but often alerts don’t deliver user to alert specific content.
Excellent app 5/5

Clean design, easy to read, easy to navigate.
WSJ Critique 5/5
Very good 5/5
Recommended for journal readers
WSJ App 2/5
All I want is ready access to the current news. Unfortunately the “App” is laden with unwanted and confusing intrusions both when I am reading and also when I am not. You need to do better or your relationship with me will be history.
Part of my routine. 4/5
Read it daily.
Utter Collapse 1/5
This app worked well for years, but recently has become pretty much useless. Slow to load, difficult to navigate. Most mornings an error notice appears when trying to open the daily edition. The "latest news" edition is usually the only version available, and it is much more cumbersome to navigate since it contains both new and days-old articles. Why WSJ messed with a good thing is beyond me, but the problem is acute enough that, unless solved soon, will have me canceling an app that I have had for at least six years.
Use it everyday - pretty user friendly and good presentation
Good experience overall. But search function could be improved to work similar to website interface.
Great well written news 5/5

In this day of fake, hyped news, WSJ is go to source of news.
WSJ the Paper to Read 5/5
The WSJ is the only place I go for unbiased news. For the last two years it is the only paper I read daily. Even the sports section is now enjoyable.
WSJ Rules 5/5
One cannot find s better source of news and entertainment. Great articles and reporting. The source for a wide range of topics.
