Too slow 3/5
By Sid Dasgupta
Loading is slow. Don't like that it actually refreshes from last open
First thing in the AM 5/5
I grew up during a time when you woke up and went outside to get the paper to start your day. Now I wake up and check the news from my iPhone. Great app. Enough said.
What else could you want
Great design 5/5
Easy to use. Great search utilities. Articles in each section are available by date.
Advertisements are very annoying 3/5
WSJ features advertising in the middle of page turning that are super annoying. They are very difficult to swipe through and are five pages/swipes long. But, very unresponsive to swipes. Don't even read the ads because of how hard they are navigate the news.
By Big Tron
I am intrigued. What I used to consider WSJ as conserative, I now consider one of the more balanced source of news today.
WSJ helps keep me sane 5/5
Easy to negotiate site, great straightforward content, a news source I trust that provides well thought out opinions.
Concise accurate at the end of your fingers
News I trust
Great App 5/5
By Got a problem here#%#%#€!
Really like the user friendliness of this app! Combined with the actual reporting of news, this is a unique way to deliver current events!
Some advertisements lock up my iPad when reading in the landscape format.
This Alaskan reader chooses WSJ first 5/5
Concise well written content - I have enjoyed human interest features for decades. WSJ sorts out internet news wheat from chaff.
In this era of 24/7/365 instant news, WSJ continues to lead in quality making a clear choice over quantity. Thank you.
WSJ Mobile Review 5/5
WSJ mobile is an excellent source of unbiased journalism, when it comes to offering different perspectives, the OpEd pieces are outstanding!
Excellent topics poor transmission from the cloud. 2/5
WSJ provides me with a succinct view of a broad range of topics. I use it as my go to information resource.
Lately the app constantly freezes on certain full page ads. He only fix is to delete and reinstall. A pain in the ....
Review of WSJ iPhone app 2/5
New edition does not come up automatically. When you open the app you see the last edition you were reading. A few moments later you are prompted asking if you want the current edition. DUH!!!!
Another weakness: after reading an article you are returned back to the top of the article summaries rather than to your last location.
Another annoying feature; the WSJ sends an article of interest to your email and you need to authenticate to read it.
Great but 5/5
Love WSJ. Have a subscription. But they should have some free articles for non-subscribed users. Maybe 10 free articles a month?
PROBLEMS WITH POP UP ADS 4/5
While I love the WSJ iPad app, there is any unresolved Bug with some pop-up ads that can't be closed, requiring a reboot. Can't move from ad page and on-screen commands to Close or Back don't work! Investco and state of Indiana are to culprits.
Have not been successful in getting email to customer relations despite three attempts.
The News Leader 5 Stars 5/5
By The 649
I had to get this app due to delivery issues. I must say it is worth it with your subscription. Very informative and up to date. Breaking news is delivered instantly and never misleading. A must have app for up to the minute news.
Great app and the most facts 5/5
After reading the WSJ and using their app for several years it has one of the best apps available.
The news media, in particular on TV, has become an entertainment and social engineering outlet focused more on money and power and less on sharing the truth. The WSJ continuities to be a reliable source of real news; the kind of news that reports on what, when, how and why.
Now they make us scroll through multiple pages of ads before we can get to the next story. Did WSJ forget that we're paying customers? You can only purposely degrade your product experience so much before people leave.
Investco ad freezes app 3/5
The Investco ad freezes the app and I can't read the Journal once that happens. It has happened multiple times over the last several weeks. Really annoying
Intrusive advertisements 3/5
I am sick of intrusive ads that you have to swipe up to five times to get rid of. In the process of swiping you sometimes click on the ad and have to go through a longer process to get out of it. Maddening!
Best paper in America 5/5
Honestly, I don't see how this paper pays the amazing reporters that write for this paper. One of the last great papers in the nation.
Good job 5/5
By Wichita Willkie
Clear, easy to follow, the best on line paper I've seen.
The ads are bothersome 2/5
I enjoy reading the digital version of you paper, but the
full screen ads are completely unbearable. The full screen ads that come up in the middle of a news story are completely disruptive. I'm not sure if the ads are programmed to take over the screen until you flip through entire ad or it's a bug; in either case l find it very annoying to the point that I stopped reading you paper for several days. In one case I had to turn of the I-pad to change the screen and get back to the article. If this is a ad push strategy and continues, I'll probably go back to the paper version.
Although i disagree with WSJ editorial policy 5/5
The quality of the reporting is excellent and is in sufficient depth to understand the implications of the news.
Top notch app for a Top Notch organization 5/5
Simple, uncomplicated, & you can manage your delivery issues. Not bad.
No access 1/5
Cannot get access after the latest update. Kept saying no connection, even after I downloaded the app again. How can there be no connection?
Software problems 3/5
By Dixey Doodle
I read the WSJ on my three IPads. For years it's been great. Recently I began getting problems. The app keeps dropping pages, my record 17 times. It has problems loading pages. These problems originally affected my older IPad. Now the same problems are replicated on all three devises.
Recently, messages from Apple popped up. Indicating the app version for IPad needs to be updated as it is incompatible with the latest OS versions.
You would think, that a lot of business types read the Journal on tablets, yet the product delivery has degraded to the point of being frustrating and useless.
I like the quality of the reporting, but will cancel my all subscription. I hate dealing with the paper edition, so it will be adios, WSJ
Liberal WSJ Lover! 5/5
I love news and reading news and the WSJ is required reading IMO. The writing is terrific, I love the op-eds, and I even understand the financial bits! Journalism at its best.
Up to date 5/5
Best way to get WSJ living in HI
Great content & easy to read 5/5
By ADHD Tim
It's the great WSJ content with a reader that auto fits the screen of my iPhone 6. The font size is adjustable. The news alerts keep me up to date with critical headlines. I rarely have time during the day to read the print version as my wife does, so this portable reader allows me to catch up during breaks in the day and we can discuss the articles when I get home.
TWO SEPARATE SUBSCRIPTIONS! 2/5
By John Be
This app blows! Not only is it less usable and more laggy than the NYT app but now you have to pay for a separate subscription to view any content even if you pay for the print subscription! This is not a user-friendly company!!!
News Now 5/5
Easy to use app.... the news is there for you.
Great coverage 4/5
The WSJ covers a wide spectrum of news from around the world. Although with a definite focus on financial news, there is non-financial news as well. The only challenge is to be more central in its political coverage. Anti Trump from the start hasn't helped the nation.
Great app 5/5
By burgled and frustrated
Best source of information in a world full of data
Love it 5/5
Top notch! Love it
Loyal, satisfied customer 4/5
A simple app that helps me enjoy my favorite newspaper on the go. I like the save article feature. Only issue I had was setting it up but customer service helped resolve the problem.
Can't Zoom, Sad 3/5
The app doesn't allow zoom. The print is small, which makes it difficult to read with zoom capability.
So easy to use 5/5
By Chigall in ORD
So reliable and convenient!
Great app 5/5
Great app! I really like the in depth coverage of the Wall Street Journal.
Great articles, but irrelevant editorials. 2/5
By Geoffrey P Forster, PhD.
From business to science, WSJ has great articles, however their editorials are totally Neanderthal. Millennials will shun the WSJ until it moves into the 21st Century.
Improving Load Speeds in Slow Connections 4/5
Quality of news is top notch, app is extremely well designed, and the push notifications really enhance the utility of the app.
On a recent trip I realized that the app is not as performant in poor network conditions. Articles take forever to load, probably because of images and other media.
If there was a way to load the text in an article before the images completely rendered, you could start to read the article and then view the images by the time they finished downloading. This would really enhance the usability of the app in slow network conditions.
Navigation is great. This app has greatly improved. There were some bugs that have obviously been corrected.
Search engine...terrible. Publish dates...nonexistent 2/5
On the surface this app looks well polished. But as a grad student hoping to find useful information pertaining to a specific topic from this reputable news paper, I find myself frustrated with the 'search' feature. Furthermore, if I do stumble upon useful information I cannot cite my source correctly because none of the articles annotate their publish dates. Please fix. Thank you.
Good app 4/5
The app works pretty well. Only update I would suggest would be to maybe fade the articles you've read so that you know you've looked at them.
Love the WSJ 5/5
This app works great and when in Florida I get the paper and prefer it, but in North Carolina I read it on-line and it is easy to navigate.
Dictionary Limited Functionality 2/5
By Frustrated w Comcast
UPDATE (2) May 24, 2017 - App update a few days ago failed to include normalized dictionary. No further correspondence received from WSJ since communication indicated in update 1.
UPDATE (1) - WSJ Support Reply: "We have taken the liberty of forwarding your comments to upper management."
This rating pertains to only the app dictionary: The WSJ app is the only app I have ever used that fails to allow marking of hyphenated words (at the end of text lines carried to next line) and compound words that make up single definitions, eg, carpe diem. So, if your vocabulary reservoir is not as full as WSJ's professional writers, and you want, for instance, to get a refresher on the meaning of rapproche-ment (hyphenated at the end of a text line), or the meaning of je ne sais quoi, you'll be frustrated with 'no-can-do.'
