New app Terrible 1/5
New App is terrible. Crashes all the time. Unable to download articles for reading on plane w/o WiFi. Still no night mode. Just awful. Much slower as well.
One step forward, one step back... 3/5
I just upgraded to the latest version (3/8/2018) and while the platform improvements are sort of OK (swipe right to next feature instead of clicking an arrow being the best) there is...once again...a major flaw in the embedding of photos. Clicking on any image to enlarge it will show a large image..that is totally pixelated/out of focus! This had been an issue with the app from day one, but mercifully seemed to have been solved for the past year or so...but it's back! Whatever is resizing the thumbnail image seems to be simply making a lower rez jpeg bigger instead of loading a higher rez image! But at least to close the enlarged photo you no longer have to touch the image to get a 'done' button...maybe next revision you can simply use a swipe down motion to get back to the main page (like the WSJ and NYT apps)???
Good info, very annoying ads ruin it 1/5
The new app has all of the same info, but bombards you with pop up ads as you scroll through articles. They block the entire page and have auto play animations. Very annoying.
New App 1/5

Does not work offline. I give up.
App is terrible 1/5
The new update is so bad I am considering canceling subscription altogether. How can they issue something so erratic?
App degradation after latest update 3/5
By Running man 8967
The app is significantly slower to load stories after the latest app refresh. It is also arguably less attractive after the revised color scheme and font change. It was very easy to read and attractive in the prior version, it now looks worse. Great content, not so great design.
You Screwed Up What Was Working Fine 2/5
The last update turned this from two thumbs up to one thumb down. Why, why why! Stop messing with stuff that works! Now it looks like any other junky web page... vertical scrolling, crummy layout. Bah! I want so badly to revert to the old app, right now... It was so good before. I should have taken the black icon as a clue to stay away!
More issues in archive 4/5
I wish we could access more issues in the archive. Beyond that, love the scrolling is now vertical.
Can not access full articles 1/5
Am having a similar problem that I trace back to the acquisition of a new iPad. Access was never an issue with my older iPad but with my new one, I am unable to read full articles. I keep being asked to sign in and when I do, I am either denied or am asked to signed in again. Circular. Tech confines that I am a subscriber, and I continue to receive the paper hard copy but otherwise, Tech support has been anything but helpful.
Unsubscribe doesn’t work - Barron’s kept taking my money 1/5
Don’t use the app - I had subscribed to Barron’s via iTunes for a trial period; unsubscribing doesn’t work. Something is broke here. Barron’s refused to refund their over reach.
Don’t update to 5.0 1/5
New app update is horrible. Very hard to navigate, buggy, finding stories challenging, previewing stories non-existent. What were they thinking? I might now need to go back to reading actual paper edition!!
Great articles 4/5
Just going to give some advice if you decide to cancel you can only do so through iTunes, go to iTunes, account settings, subscriptions, click on Barron’s, then if you choose click on cancel. Barron’s was not clear on this process so wanted to give a heads up to any who subscribed and was lost as I was.
Broken navigation 2/5
I use the app in my iPad and it seems geared to just deliver up the magazine, not the breaking news. It also sometimes just shows a blank page page if I am following a link from the alert on my screen. After frustrating interactions I usually give up on the app and just go to the main page via a browser. Skip the app, it’s not worth the pixels it’s painted with.
Love my Barron’s 5/5
By Mark ChiTown
Barron’s is unequaled in terms of providing sound financial news to readers and its subscribers. No other source comes close......
Why don’t you have an iPhone X version? 1/5
What is your Dev department doing? You don’t have to go and redesign the entire app all you have to do is make slight changes to the UI to make it compatible for iPhone X. It’s been 6 months since your last update. It’s 2017 it’s ridiculous when a company like News Corp can’t push periodic updates to the app. Higher more devs! We are in a new age keep up with the times. People pay a good amount for the subscription please be respectful of that.
Monthly fees 1/5
Probably good if you want to pay the monthly fees
East to use 5/5
East access to info
New iPhone X support 3/5
Great content but needs iPhone X support
Not the same 1/5
I’m not a big fan of not being able to turn the pages digitally as with the last version. I’m actually considering canceling my subscription. I can’t find what I’ve been reading for years and I’m just done with Barron’s.
How can I see upcoming earnings
Took 3 tries to download. And never could log in. Gave up and deleted it. Will just use the Web site.
I have made a great deal of money trading Barron’s recommendations. If they are long on a stock I short it and if Barron’s is negative on a security I go Long. It has been a wining strategy for several years. A tremendous resource.
Must have for all serious investors
Hooray for Barron’s 5/5
If you, like me, live in the business world of investing, it’s practically impossible to imagine life without Barron’s. A few times each year Barron’s misses Saturday delivery and arrives on a hollowing Monday or Tuesday. These are bad weekends indeed and encourage a movement for the abolition of holidays for those who deliver the mail. Richard Hoe.
Great publication 3/5
If you can get it. Home delivery is horrible.

Incredible market insights. Thank you!
By bobby Loq
Concise, up to date and timely.
I started reading the weekly Barron's in 2008 after being suggested by a friend. Now, 9 years later I am able to manage my retirement on my own. I will always be an advocate as it allows the reader so much personal freedom, money management skills and in depth sector analysis.

The standard for financial journalism 5/5
Barron's has maintained its place atop the list in a crowded field. Timely AND thoughtful.
X support 2/5
Needs iPhone X support
Just the right weekly digest 5/5
and details when needed. I love the magazine and use it to teach my 16 year old on financial management. He is starting to show good grasp as he says Barron’s is enjoyable in terms of writing style. Keep it up!
Good App and even better investment information 4/5
I like the way the app loads and updates quickly. Articles and in depth and timely. I would highly recommend the Barron's app even better than the paper that only arrives once a week.
Pretty old App 2/5
Not even taking full use of new iPhone X screen. Showing black band on top and bottom is pretty lame.
Not exactly 1/5
By Sage dog
It’s just not a great experience
Web site better than the app 1/5
I’ve been using the iPad app for several weeks without any problem. Today was very different. Many articles only had titles with the rest of the page blank. I sent a message to Barron’s through the app and then received 6 emails from tech support 2 minutes apart that said they would respond soon.
The eventual response told me to click on a few things within the app to fix the issue. Those things are not even in the iPad app. Apparently tech was using an out of date app or they are just crazy.
I sent another email to them stating the problems with their solution and again received a barrage of irrelevant emails.
The tech support is totally worthless and the problem with empty blank pages persists both on the iPad and the iPhone.
The web site works perfectly.
One star for really bad tech support. I’ve never seen such poor support from any company. You say apples they say oranges.
Perhaps they should bring the support back to the Unites States from the Philippines.
Cannot save articles for offline reading 1/5
Their "save" function is really just a bookmark. Doesn't save anything for offline viewing. What they call " share" is sending a link via text message only
Stop physical paper delivery 5/5
By Dave Fawkes
Hi I just subscribed to the electronic version and I am now receiving the physical version.
Please immediately stop the physical delivery as I am hardly at that address and it will cause a security risk as people will know no one is at home.

Poor Interface 2/5
Barron’s has a poor interface when you compare it to it’s company family peers the Wall Street Journal. You can’t even take a close up at the cover of the weekly print edition. I’m sure most subscribers would agree this interface can be greatly improved.
Must have 5/5
A true must have for the serious investor.
As a Financial Advisor it’s my job to stay current and abreast of the latest financial news. Barron’s provides up to date concise and relevant news.
Needs improvement 1/5
Not user friendly! It keeps asking for security question, navigation is not intuitive, frustrating to use.
It’s Still the Bible 5/5
The best research available to the general public. Worth every penny.
Terrible, so many bugs! 1/5
I’ve been a subscriber for over 3years, and have seen this app get worse over time. The most apparent and frustrating bug now is that when you’re reading an article, the app will intermittently scroll you back to the top. And you lose your reading spot. PLEASE FIX!!
Essential Reading 5/5
By Man from Tulsa
Whether you are experienced or not, this publication is essential reading on a daily or even a weekly basis.
When you want to stop subscription the app doesn't let you stop it. Says error in software. Trying for 4 months to stop it!
Good start for developing quick insights about trending business news
C S aAAer of rr 5/5
Freezes after sleep 2/5
iPad version freezes when iPad wakes up after sleeping and have to force quit the app.
Frequent Failures 3/5
Application dies on occasion. Pages reload automatically for no reason and you lose your spot. Advertising is intrusive, especially considering that we're paying for a subscription. I just turn off network connection to not be bothered by ads but then you lose stock quotes, etc.
Love Barron's. Really like the new app which has all the latest articles and the magazines in one place
