Easy to use and great news source 5/5
Love that I can access local Milwaukee news more conveniently than via email or on the website. My favorite feature is the push notifications so I can stay up to date on local news as much as national.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 5/5
Love it. Everything I need in one place, one tap.
Great source of breaking news 5/5
Timely updates on business critical information!
Too many ads 2/5
The milwaukee journal sentinel app is slow to load and has wayyyyy too many ads
Bad sell 1/5
Pay for membership, won’t let me in most of the time, total scam
Easy to use app 5/5
I got a digital subscription as part of a package deal with the print subscription (support local press!). The app is easy to use and I check it regularly, particularly for weather and big stories that I know will be updated regularly. I also like that special “for subscriber” stories are clearly marked and that if you don’t log in for awhile, the app will prompt you to “check out stories you missed.”
Why get notified of subscriber-only stories when you’re not a subscriber? Is it too much to ask to label ALL subscriber-only stories that way instead of only some of them?
Local news and sports 5/5
By Germantown, Wi
There are many news organizations that report on national and world news, but only JS online gives me the local news and sports that I also like to keep up on.
My Milwaukee news source 5/5
By badgerland striders member
Read it throughout the day
Great app 5/5
By The Cardboard Box
Support local journalism!!
Great news, hot off the press 5/5
By J from Elkhorn
What a great way to stay in touch with the latest news from the greater Milwaukee area.
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 1/5
By achim 38
This app was great when it worked but now it keeps freezing. Not sure what issue is??? Closed it uninstalled and reinstalled but on a IPhone 10 max and just won’t work.
More deep and hard-hitting reporting, less fluff! 5/5
Ya’ll got what it takes! Be courageous! Dig deep!
I have a subscription and I’m still deluged with awful ads. Trash app. At least it doesnt crash constantly like the mobile website
Great App 5/5
Enjoy the paper very much.
MJ App Stinks 1/5
Why is it 1/2 size?
This app needs work. 1/5
When I try to access news stories, it often asks me to log in and when I try to, the app says there are connection problems and I should try later. Um, I think I pay for this app. It should work better than that!
Over the last several months this app displays years old stories in the home and garden section. Before that time the app matched what was in the print version. Many of the links, other than the first page news, link to old stories. If the Journal Sentinel truly wants to up their game in the e subscription space, there is a lot of room for improvement
I would like to rate this app higher. If only it worked.
Constantly have to log in. Annoying 2/5
Need to fix
Old news 2/5
By Fun games for Sue
So many articles are 4-5 days old. I thought I was getting the print version of this newspaper. Very disappointed.
Terrible App 1/5
Cluttered and the journalism is terrible, inaccurate and biased. No local news or high school sports unless is a negative article. Most news is 1 or 2 days old and poorly written. This paper loves itself and will tell you how great they are, most of what they print is carry over from USA Today. Just a waste of time
Milwaukee Journal 5/5
I like the quality of reporting on the local NFL team. It helps me to understand the opposition.
Too much breaking news 4/5
I turned on breaking news only and I wish there was a way to turn off all of the notifications that o have no interest in. The app is nice, but wish I could subscribe to true breaking news or at least select the topics that I want to hear. I get a lot of unnecessary sports news on my feed. Other than that the app is nice
Ap does not work for independent subscribers 1/5
The software presumes subscribers will pay thru Apple’s kachinking, money-grubbing, gatekeeping devices. Non-payers to Apple-apps get foreclosed from the benefits of their externally paid subscriptions. The app stinks. It doesn’t pay to have subscribed to the paper without access to its subscriber content when using an IPad gatekeeper.
Not worth it 1/5
After latest update it is now blocking subscriber only content even though I am a subscriber. Add in months old stories still showing up, lack of current news, crashes , it isn’t worth it. Cancelling subscription and erasing this app
Will not let me cancel 1/5
I have the app on my iPhone. Subscribed for one story. Now trying to cancel subscription every time I log on it takes me to a page with my name and email address that says sign in or with Facebook or cancel. Ridiculous!!!
Is a great, well written paper!
Like the idea but the app fails to deliver 2/5
By Tom in Franklin
JSONLINE is clunky and so is the app. The current version on my iPhone will not let me view today’s version of the paper. I want the local news but this app and website have never been very good.
Sign-in issues 1/5
The process for signing in and accessing the content is time consuming and cumbersome.
Not user friendly 2/5
Unable to find the e-edition. Puzzles are not the same as in the paper.
Great paper, problems with sign in 3/5
I love the Journal Sentinel, but it’s sign in is aggravating. I click to sign in, it welcomes me by name and says to click the Facebook icon to check in. I do, and the circle on the screen spins around and around, and the same screen pops up. This should not happen to a paying customer and needs to be fixed.
Easy App 5/5
Such an easy app with top notch journalism.
Late news 3/5
By anynickname nottaken?
JS content is pretty good...balanced political presentation, but if you’re looking for the pleasure of reading last night’s sports, good luck! Not so good in Packer land, Buckland, or Brewers’ Country. When that happens I want to give up my subscription.
Good source for news! 5/5
By Florida Cheeshead
I enjoy reading the app news when I’m able to have access. Am considering subscribing.
Great in depth news site 5/5
This is a great local news operation. Some of the best investigative reporting you'll find anywhere.
Since updating to the latest IOS the app is very unstable. Stories in page view don’t load or disappear and app crashes often. Unreadable as is. Hope it gets fixed soon or I will have to cancel.
Excellent News Coverage 5/5
I love the mix between local and national news. They report a balanced mix of politics.
No cancellation?! 1/5
By Newsroom now
The only way to cancel is call? No bueno
More Bice ! 5/5
By Pulitzer Judge
Dan Bice is an excellent investigative reporter. Packers coverage is best in the state. Great coverage of Madison politics, too...
Hometown news 5/5
I moved from Milwaukee a few years ago but keep in touch with my hometown by using the app every morning. It gives me the news I want when I want it without a hitch at all
App not working to allow a subscriber 2/5
I purchased a digital subscription with the J Sentinel online. I’m able to access the digital print of the newspaper ok, but when I try to use this app to read news emailed to me from the JS it allows me to read the first one, however if I wanted to continue reading any subsequent article the app will freeze and ask me for my email and password.
I have added my information to the app several times but keep asking me the same. It doesn’t process the subscription so I have to get out. If I want to read more I must go to the email or to the digital print.
I hope they can fix it.
Poor customer service 1/5
Every month, the JS deducts $6.99 for my monthly subscription, and every time I go into the app and sign in, it will kick me out and tell me to subscribe. I’ve spoken to several individuals in customer service, and each time they tell they’ve fixed it, and each subsequent time, the same thing happens! Think it’s time to cancel since I’m tired of their incompetence!
No Connection 1/5
By really fing frustrated
Milwaukee journal sentinel 5/5
Great sports and timely coverage
A great newspaper....
Packer news 5/5
Good source of packers news.
Box scores not viewable!!! 2/5
For months I have been unable to drill down to box scores on games. I have to go to other apps/websites to get that information. Very frustrating!
Can’t get print version 1/5
Ridiculous. App doesn’t do anything. Even if a subscriber can’t get anything different and no print version option.
You sign and still can’t read the articles! Makes me angry...might just cancel my subscription!!!
