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!!!
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.
Digital subscription 5/5
Very handy and easy to navigate
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.
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.
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
