Why does the journal try and charge us for articles we can find for free online. Isn’t all the stupid popups enough money for them?
JS app 1/5
By no wonder you're closing down
The worst I have ever used. Looking for a review of a recent concert takes me to one from years ago. Looking for an article in YESTERDAY’s paper yields nothing. Totally frustrating and useless.
I may have to resort to scissors and a stamped envelope to share an article that a far-away friend might enjoy. Uggh.
Ps have tried six ‘nicknames’ as required, and all are already being used. And all express dissatisfaction.
Good paper 5/5
Overall good paper
Mr Subscriber 1/5
By Stanton L
Over priced. Not responsive. Baised
Us online 3/5
By overseas travler not happy
My husband didn’t like not getting his full journal on line when we were overseas. We paid for it. You said when we tried to stop journal years ago that we could get it online. Well this trip we got Us today highlights. He wasn’t to happy!
The paper keeps getting smaller each year, so we want to read it as we always do not your new format when we travel overseas.
Excellent journalism - Glitchy App 3/5
The pay wall on this app is extremely frustrating, and it does not communicate well with other apps (ie Bleacher Report). It constantly tells me to subscribe, even though I’m a subscriber!
You have to pay to read the stories 1/5
The app may be free to download, but, that’s all that’s free. All of the stories cost money to read. That’s because the newspaper wants to keep the population that doesn’t subscribe dumb and subservient. They don’t want the general population to learn and become educated. It’s a pity.
By irritated by junk apps
The app never works on an iPhone. Never!
Stellar local coverage 5/5
JS provides great coverage of news and features.
Simply The Best 5/5
It is an amazing way to experience all the news for today. Thank you. Oh yes, the Packers and Badger coverage is outstanding
JS Online 1/5
Yuk! Looks like I’m going to have to move if I want to get a local paper that I enjoy reading. I signed up for an online subscription after reading free content for awhile. To this day I can’t tell whether I am reading content that is free or part of the paid subscription. I haven’t seen a new editorial in a month. I would send an email to get some clarification on this but there is no method to ask questions. The only email I can send is to the newsroom with story ideas. WSJ, here I come.
Great News 5/5
By jb dons.
Love the journal sentinel on line. Having lived in Milwaukee for a number of years it’s great to be able to keep up with current events.
HORRIBLE APP 1/5
This app has several times has Caused my phone to do the black screen of death. The phone had to reboot so it wouldn’t be permanently a black screen. Do not download.
First-Class News Organization 5/5
By John S., Long-Time Reader
As a long-time reader of this newspaper, starting in the 1950’s when it was The Milwaukee Journal, I always look forward to reading the local and state stories as well as the national and world news. As evidenced by their Pulitzer Prizes for journalism, it is a first- class news organization which I hope continues for many years to come. Thanks
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
Too many ads for a paid subscription 1/5
Paid for a digital subscription, yet I’m presented with ad content constantly. I shouldn’t have to scroll through ad content endlessly.
Going downhill 1/5
You use to get 100 free stories per month. Now they’ve locked up the app so you get a paragraph and then an invite to subscribe. I don’t pay for what was once free. I’m done with this app.
Update. Now told I’ve reached my monthly limit of stories and I’ve read not one story this month. A rip off.
Pop ups 1/5
When did you start with pop ups???
Click bait. I’m trying to read obituaries and a box pops up that only allows me yes or go backwards out of the section I’m reading.
Wonder why newspapers are dead!!!
Digital subscription 5/5
Very handy and easy to navigate
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 5/5
By Nan from Wisconsin
Live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Has the articles, news, and other features I enjoy.
Service terrible 1/5
Could be zero rating
Needs commenting function 4/5
I don't like that the app doesn't allow for comments on stories like the web version does. But the app itself works fine and has a decent set of features once you get used to using it.
iOS purchased subscriptions killed 1/5
After an app update I’m logged out, and I am also unable to restore purchases. It just does nothing.
Great content- awful clickbait ads 1/5
I love the writing - especially the sports - with JS. However a recent trend is getting so much worse - the click bait. At least you could allow those of us who pay for the unlimited content a break. Please please cut the ad content. Otherwise 5 stars
Can't open articles 2/5
Very frustrating! I'm a Sunday - Wednesday subscriber and when I go to jsonline the articles I tap on will not open. Already reloaded the app from the Apple Store and nothing improved.
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!
Is anybody really there? 1/5
Customer support is VIRTUALLY Non existent, after I open an account, and PAY JS, they won’t let me merge, manage my account to view the E print edition. Did anyone down at JS OFFICE put any real thought into the development of the JS online app?
Not current news 1/5
How difficult is it to update the news on this app? MJS/Gannett could hire a local part time high school journalism student to select current articles from the paper and post on this app..heck even I could do it...good grief! There are articles in nearly every section that are months old. Not even worthy of 'fake news'. Just plain sad. You'll get more current news from standing in line at the grocery reading the tabloids.
Great Newspaper 5/5
MJS has great writers and it’s important to support your local news source.
Only good for the top new stories 1/5
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
Great app 5/5
They have it figured out, they get stories, local, state and national quickly and report them accurately.
Timely and insightful 5/5
Trustworthy reporting that is timely and insightful.
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 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.
