Thorough Reporting 5/5
For the first time in my life, I strongly feel the need to be overly discerning in the choice of my news sources. I read both the WSJ and the NYT. Both have thorough reporting. WSJ seems a bit more even handed. Regardless, there are many sources of news that I simply ignore. PLEASE stay the course and maintain your standards.
Compared to the FT app the WSJ is half as good
Please add split screen mode! Would love to be able to jot down some notes in a note taking App like Notability as I read. Same for Barron’s app.
Current, Accurate and Complete 5/5
At least I get news as unbiased as is available and more balanced than anything else out there. Thank goodness there are letters and opinions from more than one side of the spectrum. Accuracy matters. There isn’t much in media anymore.
Objective news coverage 5/5
The WSJ provides insight and coverage of story reveal impartiality. They focus on the facts while providing details of backstory.
Become very biased 1/5
Used to be very good and unbiased but had become another mouthpiece for the manufactured news of FOX news. Lost a lot of credibility over the last 6-9 months. Not the same WSJ. Shame.
Solid app, good paper 5/5
By Darth Seren
No complaints about the app, and I always thought WSJ was just financial news for stock brokers and grandpas who were nearing retirement. I’ve been surprised by some how good some of the stories have been and some of their breaking stories (which, IMO, is not the same as all the cable news channels and their near constant “breaking news” flashes). Good investigative journalism.
Easy to use and navigate 5/5
By Keep hopping
Use it daily
Very Good! 4/5
No longer are there issues with switching to the app from email. Has become pretty seamless.
WSJ on the iPad is good 4/5
I read the iPad version of the WSJ because the paper version is inconvenient during my travels.
The iPad easier to read than the Kindle.
There have been no technical problems.
Much better than other papers 5/5
By Grt. App.
Great app and paper,I really enjoy reading it.
By Kase jonez
Awesome sauce !!!!!!
Word definitions 4/5
I might be wrong on this, a preference setting or something, but in another prominent app for a New York City publication, holding your finger on a word renders a definition. Check it out WSJ!
Needs lots of improvement for iPhone 2/5
By Oh, well
iPad is not as poor quality, but needs improvement, too.
The WSJ app has always been weak relative to the NYT or WaPo, but still just amazing how bad & buggy it is. When you open it, you never know what edition will appear. Maybe today. Maybe 3 days ago, and good luck getting it to load most recent edition.
A bad app 1/5
The wsj app has always been gltichy and it still is. The iPad app works much better. The iPhone app fails to update the news normally -- so sometimes you are staring at weeks old "latest news" and it can take minutes to longer to update.
Excellent graphics, font 5/5
By Chente V
ASP app 5/5
Great app for great reporting 5/5
For years, I toyed with the idea of subscribing to WSJ. Finally, frustrated with local newspapers (gave up on TV news 40years ago), I took the plunge. Wish I had done it sooner. The app makes it easy to find what you need or want. Go for it.
WSJ App 1/5
I love daily reading of WSJ newspaper but I repeatedly cannot gain consistent access through the App. I log in but continue to be denied access. I contacted help desk 4x who responded but I continue to have access problems. At this point I have given up using the App.
Still the best newspaper 5/5
Still the best newspapers for all the news opinions, and knowledgeable reporting you need to know.
I like to read wsj to have complete overview of everything important happening around usa
Needs ADjustment 1/5
This otherwise excellent epublication periodically runs advertisements that require a reboot of one’s device to continue reading it — It’s unfortunate.
Great paper and app 5/5
Download daily. Interesting point of view. Must read
A+ app 5/5
Customer support lacking 1/5
As of 6/16/2018 i am not able to reach a login screen within the iPad app, so it’s essentially dead. I spent 17 mind numbing minutes with a “WSJ” call enter employee where he told me that I should apologize to him due to the app not working. Then he suggested that i print all he articles out from the browser so I could read them offline.
Total customer support fail
Always loading - never loaded 3/5
By Gil Penchina
It doesn't start loading so I read old news. Then it loads repeatedly, blocking me from reading. Then when I get on the plane I realize I can't read any of the articles
Wsj - please look at the nytimes lazy loading feature and copy it!!
Best News App Out There 5/5
Use it every day.
Great app! 5/5
Very informative, great learning tool. It is a must read.
WSJ app 3/5
Download speeds are slow
Stories need to update daily 4/5
Expensive news... shouldn’t advertise articles when you have to pay. 1/5
Charges for everything.
WR McCall 4/5

The app is very helpful when I am not at my computer.
Great Reporting 5/5
By Cowboy Central
In a world of vague uncertainties and constant partisan reporting it is refreshing to have your independent and honest take on matters.
Full page ads preventing viewing of the entire article 4/5
Update (6/15/2018): Getting better. Full pages ads are fixed, new font is nice. Everything seems well optimized for the 10.5” iPad Pro. No more blurry words. A single column option for reading each article would still be nice, but overall, I’m satisfied.
Update (5/4/2018): full page ads still preventing reading an entire article. Support responded with some canned response about the importance of advertising. Again, I don’t care about seeing ads, but ads are supposed to allow you to read the entire article. At least pretend to care about the problem and do something about it.
Well they finally added the new font to the iPad app and it seems optimized for iPad Pro now. Of course something else broke in the process. Now I can’t scroll past a full page ad. There is nothing quite so fulfilling as reading the first two or three pages of a story and then having absolutely no idea how it ends because the full page ad prevents you from seeing the last page. If I were a journalist, I’d be furious about this. Your work is essentially being truncated because of poor app design. I understand ads pay bills. Have no problem with them. But I need to be able to see what comes after the ad. Otherwise, why read the paper at all?
Great app and functional 5/5
Outstanding web site & news. Balanced, relevant and fair. Pretty much the only “paper” I believe. I only get my news from FOX NEWS and the WSJ. Doug Cowan
Almost as good as print edition... 5/5
Still prefer print
Wsj excellent 5/5
Roger Charest 5/5
Enjoy coverage of business news.
Easy to use 5/5
Great on my iPad
Love it 5/5
Even on a European vacation I can get my WSJ fix in the morning.
Very disappointed 1/5
This app doesn’t work on iPhone IOS11 and above. The log in site cannot be displayed appropriately thus no way to put in user name and password. I have to sign in and browse the journal using internet browser. Very inconvenient!!
New subscriber 5/5
By Ole Wheez
Really enjoyable way to read the news!!
Works nicely on the iPhone, but is horrible on the kindle. Slow to load, update, sensitive to spurious riches on the screen. Very annoying.
I hate being repetitive, but this app is great.
Amazing app 5/5
Let’s you read many of the articles from each days WSJ. Would be better if it had all the content.
WSJ app review 2/5
Great app for reading the WSJ
Poor interface for loading in the newspaper each day. Too slow not 100% reliable.
Straight up, the best newspaper in the country. 5/5
From the exceptional writing to the lack of bias in news (opinion stays in the opinion section), WSJ is the elite source for business news.
Interesting and informative, quality reads! 5/5
I love reading the WSJ. I read articles I normally
wouldn’t read and always learn something new.
