Explorative Journalism 5/5
I perceive that the WSJ turns up unique and interesting articles. (Theranos) especially when I’m not subscribing i notice them. Today after my 20th renewal I loved the Vermeer and Poekel articles and will look forward to the next head spinner as well.
Good overall 4/5
The app is pretty good. There's a few quirks that I wish they would straighten out. Some thoughts:
-scrolling through multiple opened articles isn't super easy or intuitive
-sometimes you open an article and it opens in a browser within the app which i don't fully understand and which is inconvenient
-there's an audio feature for the articles which is great. It's just an ai reading the article so nothing revolutionary, but for some reason it isn't applied to all articles, which it should be. I think ideally they could have major articles read by a designated reader or by the author and then they could use the ai for smaller or less important articles.
Everything else about the app is pretty convenient and intuitive, but there's room for improvement.
Minus Opinions 1/5
Love the WSJ for everything it has to offer except the opinion page. It makes me question the Wall Street news they present.
Terrible subscription service 1/5
App experience is decent but it was pushing lots of sensational news instead of just the news. Their subscription plan was horrible. The subscription fee went up by 10x WITHOUT NOTICE and upon 1 day cancellation, no refund was provided. Please help yourself and stay away from WSJ.

Just wanted to get your attention, real people help make real life happen.
Letters to the Editor: one of my “trusted sources” 5/5
The letters are signed, with name, hometown and state. Often the credentials of the writer are also included, e.g. “President emeritus, Cato Institute, Falls Church, VA. In other words, WSJ readers are well informed and often have first-hand information that staff and op-ed writers missed- a small but essential joint effort to keep the world honest.
Push Notes don’t work 2/5
Why isn’t there more content similar to the print addition? Notifications don’t link.
Not functional for reading news 1/5
Critical resource which is in accessible to blind users through this app please improve 1/5
Blind subscribers like me are disadvantaged by this app as it has very poor support for the built-in voiceover screen reader. Can you please improve the situation for us?
First class 5/5
Straight stuff, no bull, no politics.
By Heather Cottage
Generally works good, but find it hard to forward to others that I would like to see the piece. Columnists are excellent.,
Good App 5/5
App is pretty user friendly, easy to navigate. WSJ also seems to be one of the few places actually doing good, unbiased journalism, for the most part, which is nice.

Mandatory daily reading. Fair. Balanced. Insightful.
By Istanbul resident
I have WSJ subscription for more than 10 years. You are more trustable than in the past while media all around is outrageously partisan and even manipulative to change the news. Keep on your neutrality. (when others like NYT and MSNBC CNN continue biased to the left any neutral would appear on the right because that’s the only other direction in comparison) Thank you Anri
It’s true that you are not perfect.
You are nonetheless superior to those that claim to be liberal and those that want to be in the middle but aren’t so.
Keep on the good work
I see politics dividing the storylines… 3/5
However, I do still find some worthwhile articles.
For now, I will remain a subscriber, but if things become too contentious, I’ll refrain from annually renewing.
There should be no ads 1/5
I find it ridiculous that I pay for a subscription an I have to see ads. There should be no ads!!
Ruining sports coverage. 2/5
Can you believe someone at WSJ thought it a good idea to send out the World Cup game final score as a notification to everyone so you can’t enjoy it yourself when you get to it?
Audio Speed and watch app 2/5
The text to speech native reader doesn’t allow for higher then 1x speed but pages on the web do. Please add a speed options to the app.
Also what happened to the Apple Watch app? It just disappeared. I used it all the time. :(
Clunky and Frustrating App 1/5
By J Astronym
When scrolling threw news stories, the app almost always freezes at an ad, and many times depending on the ad will refresh and send you to the top, meaning that you can’t get to the bottom stories. It is frustrating enough that even though I like the news source, I keep asking myself whether to terminate my subscription.
A Great Read 5/5
The WSJ App is a terrific find. It brings the content of the WSJ-the only newspaper you really need to read-to your fingertips for easy consumption when you want to read l always start with the opinion section, easy to find in the app’s menu section. You can select your content-just look for the summary of each article under the headline. It’s all about convenience and ease of use.
Noticias nítidas y actualizadas.
Review of digital edition 2/5
By menahem Meier
I am not satisfied with my access to the digital edition of the WSJ.
The app works sporadically on my iPad and does not work on my wife’s iPhone. Months ago we had better access. Disappointed!
keeps making me log back in to get to articles i enjoy content though
New app layout isn’t functional 2/5
By Honest reviewer 3000
The new redesign splintered the content on WSJ across a dozen different tabs. Say goodbye to scrolling through to find what’s interesting. You now have to individually visit each sub-page to get all the news.
The WSJ app is really 5-star, but only worth $4/mo 5/5
I have been a reader of the WSJ for 40 years. I really respect the journalists and editors who consistently write quality, informative and creative articles. With that said, I scribe to A LOT OF CONTENT via subscription. I like to financially support those sites a read, but $4 is my limit per month. The WSJ and every other content provider have a game where they give you a limited introductory low monthly fee like $4 - then 6 months later they jack it up to $30, probably in the hope that you won’t notice. I make a not in my Apple calendar to call them before the expiration and cancel and they ALWAYS give the $4 deal for another 6 months. It’s a hassle, but that is the ridiculous dance they play.
Comments lacking 1/5
The wsj is great, but the app is lacking bc you can’t read the comments to the opinions. The commentary is The most entertaining part of the wsj.
Used to Be Reliable News 1/5
After subscribing to the WSJ for 40 years, I find that it is sadly no longer a reliable source of facts and news. Look into who owns it now. This formerly great newspaper is now Fox Lite.
Scrolling interrupted, returned to top 3/5
Whenever I begin scrolling down the main page on this app I am repeatedly and suddenly returned to the top of the page with no notice, and no input from me. I can be toward the very bottom of the page and suddenly I’m taken back to the top. Not for a story update. Very frustrating.
Freezes sometimes 4/5
By Jae San
Does the job but needs force quit from time to time due to freezing on my iPhone 11
Must call to cancel 1/5
How sketchy and stuck in the 1990s AOL world is that?
You can subscribe online but can only unsubscribe by calling them. That is unless you live in a particular state, and then the unsubscribe button magically appears because it’s required by law.
Navigation not so hot 5/5
Content very good, navigation not. Videos don't work.
My Husband and I love to read Wall Street paper! 5/5
By Elana Holiday
Missing reader comments 3/5
I switched the mobile version of Wall Street Journal for the subscription savings. It was never explained to me that I would lose the building to see reader comments associated with articles.
I find the format more challenging to navigate as well.
By Dusan Dragan
Thoughtful, fact-based reporting that provides me with valuable news and information.
Not enough free options 2/5
I’m a huge fan of the wall street journal. However the online is a little disappointing to not have full access.
Daily Update 5/5
By Clyde Bluejay
I enjoy reading each morning the latest U.S. and global news.
Logged in but can’t access any articles 1/5
Fair and Balanced 5/5
By Africa Hope
I have numerous news apps and WSJ is one of the easiest to use. It truly is one of the only news apps I can trust to give me just the facts. I have a financial background so I appreciate getting information quickly. While other news articles are A bit biased the WSJ gives me the information I need without all the hype.
Fonts way too small 4/5
The content is good but I struggle to read the articles because even the largest font size is too small to read comfortably, especially at night when I have to dim the screen. On the main pages I can only read the titles because the lead in text size is fixed at a tiny size -- can't be adjusted. It would be great if WSJ would provide a few larger fonts! Perhaps those of us without perfect eyesight would get more out of the publication.
My first read everyday. 5/5
By 7 wonders
WSJ .. news.. real news.. opinion page is just that.
My fav news app but.. 4/5
I love the app. It is my go-to app for news that is not editorialized and high quality, which is why I have been a subscriber for untold number of years. However, it has had a bug now for many years which refuses to go away. Often, when clicking on a news alert, the app restarts and goes to its home page.
This would be tolerable if this was rare but it is very frequent. App owners, please fix!
The User Friendly App 5/5
The Wall Street Journal is not only informative, it is user friendly. That is why I use it. Pertinent, up-date and well-written articles.
Un-needed notifications 1/5
They send you notifications about articles and then when you click them you have to pay to read. Just don’t send me the notification then.
I’m a subscriber and many articles are behind a paywall 1/5
By Aspiring Wantrepreneur
Like the title suggests- many articles will be randomly behind a paywall, despite being a subscriber and being logged in on the app. Please fix this issue WSJ
Unusable on iPhones 1/5
The app is essentially unusable on iPhone. In the middle of reading, the page refreshes and goes back to the top. Every several seconds. This happens consistently, it has for a long time, across versions of the apps and of iOS. I suppose refreshing the ads (if that’s the cause) is more important than letting a reader read the articles.
WSJ is the One! 5/5
By Gator Granny
This is the only paper where one can find a plethora of information not only in our country but in the world as well with stellar factual backing. The political news, happenings, art, music, entertainment book reviews are the best, including the crosswords and humorous cartoons. This is my favorite newspaper!
Account needs updating 1/5
By Random user named randy
Every time I open the app it says my account needs updating and if I follow the link it doesn’t need updates.
Best newspaper 5/5
By far the clearest most accurate reporting.
