The app never connects to account in a functional way.
It offers to allow review of account, but it’s always down, forcing you to call and wait forever for a real person.
The chat function, even if you FINALLY link with an agent, doesn’t work barely at all- after typing a letter or two, the keyboard disappears making it impossible to maintain a chat conversation.
For a media company, the tech is atrocious.
Selected USA Today newspapers do not update 1/5
Occasionally, I will check with some other USA Today partner papers where we have friends or relatives living, only to find that the stories haven’t updated from the last time we looked. Why bother having this feature if it doesn’t work? The Sheboygan Press hasn’t been updated in 3 weeks!
Garbage Newspaper 1/5
If you just want to learn about the liberal perspective, enjoy one sided and often misleading articles then this is the news source for you. The MJS has done more harm to their local community by not letting it’s residents know what’s really happening, by presenting their own biased views of everything and intentionally NOT covering certain stories than all the drug gangs in the city. Good journalism is extremely important for a community. The MJS is anything but that. I will be glad to see them go.
Spell much? 3/5
Can’t you see the oh so obvious spelling errors in your headlines and articles?
JS Review 4/5
I enjoy this app because it always has the most current news and information. Thanks!
Great news app 5/5
Nice to have local news app that covers everything and is kept up to date fairly regularly. I read all the national news and major city apps like USA Today, CNN, New York Times and The Post, and it's nice to have Milwaukee news app on par with these organizations. Definitely recommend this app to keep update on not just local but national news, and as it pertains to MKE.
Attorney Sandy Swartzberg 5/5
By Sam Poses
Great Coverage and info
Hockey coverage 1/5
Milwaukee a Admirals and other hockey coverage would be nice.
Good, for A Gannett Paper 4/5
The MJS has been a conscience of Wisconsin voters and a much needed watchdog of local and state government. A defender of open records laws when the GOP in Madison continually tried to slip one past the electorate (and called them out when they lied about it). Investigations into topics like alcohol related traffic deaths (certainly rankling the powerful Tavern League lobbyists) and suspicious deaths at all-inclusive Mexican resorts have been outstanding, among others. My worries that their sale to Gannett would weaken their mission have largely been unfounded, so far. But I'm still watching closely. Excellent sports coverage, even with the retirement of the legendary Bob McGinn.
I like the Journal Seninel. It provides great updates for whats going on in Wisconsin.
Great hometown paper 5/5
Love reading MJS. Great investigative journalism that doesn't just take easy stories or story lines. Excellent in depth sports reporting as well. Really enjoy Michael Cohen's stories.
National News is old news 1/5
Why is the national news not updated? I am seeing the same headlines for a week now!
Nice paper 5/5
It has all what I need to stay on top the news.
Sports / News 5/5
Great Content, including coverage of the Packers!
Great Improvement 5/5
I love the new JS-Online App / Easy and quick to use and easy to connect with other papers all over the US
Great in depth news site 5/5
This is a great local news operation. Some of the best investigative reporting you'll find anywhere.
Great content - app is getting better 5/5
The MJS is a great newspaper. They do excellent investigative journalism. I was concerned when USA Today bought MSJ but it seems like they have kept their hands off the best of MSJ. The app is getting better- I especially like the photo galleries.
Excellent sports section 5/5
I'm a big Packer fan and they have the team covered wall to wall.
News and sports 5/5
MY PREFERENCES 5/5
I am really liking the new, revised app.
Having quick access to the sections I always use is very helpful.
JS App 5/5
By Matt F. of Brookfield
View it every day. Great app.
Great coverage of Packers and Badgers.
Relevant local and global content. 5/5
Relevant local and global content. Good technical interface. Very happy with my subscription.
Great news source 5/5
By MidMichigan reader
This app works very well on my iPhone and iPad, and while the news stories vary in quality and importance, I appreciate having it as a free source of news.
Great read 5/5
Plenty of articles to read. Always up to date. I love this app, and the sentinel.
Improvements needed 4/5
I like to read and support the local paper. The MJS still have good local coverage at its investigating unit is first rate. With the decline in circulation and number of reports the depth of coverage has declined. The USA network focus increase the oaper's national and international resources but little space is allocated to this news.
The app contains good content but it is somewhat difficult to navigate. Why is the "home" link buried under the " investigations " section? This should be easier to find
Best website / app for WI news 5/5
By Badger Crusader
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has one of the best news websites and apps that I've seen. Very easy to navigate. Great local sports coverage - some of the finest writers in the industry.
Only complaint would be to make it easier to search for older articles, even from a couple days earlier.
JS online app is spectacular 5/5
Love the Journal Sentinel, been reading it for 30 years. Now with the app it's that much easier!
By iTouch junkie
Love this app...and this from someone who loves having a physical newspaper in hand. Nicely done, Journal Sentinel.
Terrible. Will not launch 1/5
Confusing, cluttered, crashes. This app is totally worthless, does not provide timely information, and very left of center in their opinions. Since USA Today purchased very little local news and is two days old and full of grammatical errors. These people are a bunch of hacks that can't develop a decent app, and their news reports are not factual and generally inept. #PATHETIC #FAKENEWS
Best News Source For Milwaukee and Wisconsin 5/5
By Jim Brundage
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is the best overall source for news about Milwaukee County and the Wisconsin state government.
The only weakness is that coverage of surrounding counties and municipalities in their weekly NOW section seems to be a mile wide and an inch deep.
However, the Journal Sentinel provides excellent, in depth, investigative reports delving into local, state, and national issues that are not reported elsewhere.
Great app for a great paper in a great town. 5/5
Great app for a great paper in a great town.
My backup 4/5
I'm old school, as I still enjoy holding and reading the newspaper every morning while eating breakfast. But when traveling for work or play, my reliable backup is JSOnline.
Thank you to all the long time newspaper employees, at all levels, for hanging in there and adapting to the changing times from newsprint to electronic media. I appreciate you! Stay the course, please!
Not Current 1/5
Use to love this app but the articles have not been updated for over a week. What is the problem?
Milwaukee Journal app 4/5
I like keeping current with events in
and around Milwaukee..Always check
It when traveling. Joan B
Favorite news source 5/5
Long time subscriber, solid reporting.
Keeps me in touch with WI! 5/5
By Rap masta c
Moved out of state 30 years ago but always keep up to date with the MJS, especially the Packers. Also really enjoy Paul Smith's Outdoor columns, very informative with first hand accounts.
Business News Dying? 2/5
Seems like Gannett has lost interest in business reporting.
Everything is current. Love the new look. Articles are very clear and concise. My one stop shop to get my updates on Milwaukee and Wisconsin. Helps me stay connected .
My go-to news app

Tops in Wis 5/5
By Joe from Wis.
Best news source in Wisconsin. App is easy to
Use and VERY up to date with the latest news.
Good App, Great Paper 5/5
This is a very usable app, which I use in addition to the printed version, when on the go, or when I get up before the it arrives. This is a top notch newspaper, especially for Wisconsin news. I still prefer print, though!
MJS App 5/5
For what it costs to subscribe, it's a joke that you have to play the "what view will I get today?" Every time I open the app, I get a different format. There's no way to change a setting to get a consistent look and feel.
Great updates 5/5
Whenever anything of significance happens, my J/S app notifies me at once.
Good local coverage 4/5
By GWU econ
Good local coverage though politically commited to liberal causes. That said there is nothing illegal or unethical about expressing political opinions. Almost no media outlet can avoid slanting stories and focus to sustain their own political beliefs. MJS is no exception.
Great app! Solid layout! Solid news! 5/5
Easy to navigate app. Great straightforward news articles (as always).
