This subscription is not cheap...but it’s well worth the money. The WSJ is THE American “paper of record”. No other interactive app or news source is even close. You will often see stories reported in the WSJ and then later, other news outlets “pick up” the same story. They are, in the truest sense, a “thought leader”. It’s also true the WSJ is a “paper within a paper” (meaning News v. Editorial Board...they did a story on that) but even the EB commentary is less bombastic and more measured. I don’t often agree with EB but I have noticed the apparent change and do read and appreciate the well-reasoned perspective. Realizing this change and relaying that observation has been a big surprise, as I am not politically aligned with the WSJ, and did not think such a change would occur. More importantly, I often begin the day reading the WSJ and appreciate discovering the many unique stories... Although your annual obligatory and sarcastic “ take” on Patrick’s day is wearing thin. Still, I find myself routinely quoting the WSJ as a source (as it is reliable) or saying, “I saw that story or I read about this story in the journal” and I am usually the “first to know”. So get this app and you will be impressed and informed and, usually, entertained...and let me be the first to wish Paul Gigot Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
The reading format and layout is still better than most of the other digital subscriptions I read, but the latest updates move it backwards in some ways. Pictures blink or reload several times when moving through the issue and it loses my place in the issue when returning to read more. The annoying ads issue seems much better, so thanks for that improvement. Update April 2018 - still the best news available, but it’s losing ground. Pricing has gotten very expensive, and the daily iPad editions load very slowly after the latest Apple software update. I have to open the app twice to see content. The first time just spins with no content for far too long; closing and reopening displays content on the second app open. I’ve deleted and downloaded the app several times to see if that helped, but it didn’t. Update April 2019 - I’m experiencing app crashes several times a week; the app just unexpectedly closes while reading an article on my iPad. Transitions from pages and sections are slow and jerky at times even with 100G WiFi download speed; it is smooth when I turn off WiFi and view the issue without all the background activity that must be going on when connected. Also, I learned that saved articles on show on the device on which saved - I can’t see saved articles on my iPhone that I saved on my iPad and vice-versa.
I'm a 77 year old lifetime newspaper reader and have online subscriptions to the Washington Post (print as well as online versions) and NY Times as well as the WSJ. I download all 3 every day and wander through them getting the flavor of the coverage and the opinions. I would prefer to be able to download the print version of the WSJ so I could see the placement of articles the way I can with the WP but the WSJ app comes reasonably close. The strength of the WSJ app is the ease of scrolling through to find and read articles in each of the various sections. When all articles are simply shown in long scrolling lines placed willy-nilly on the screen, it is harder to sort out the "news" from the "opinions." It's hard enough to read news articles filled with speculative words like "could" or "might" mixed in with what actually happened. The WSJ is making an admirable effort to keep its news coverage balanced and factual and its opinion section fair. I appreciate that in today's hyper-polarized media environment. BUT, the tech end is quirky. I don't like having an article disappear in the middle of my reading it. I don't like the fact that I then have to start over with the app to get back to where I was. SURELY YOU CAN FIX THAT!
The latest version of the WSJ app has many excellent features. I like very much the real time updating of current news. The insertion of video embedded within articles adds a lot of texture and detail. It is extremely useful to have links to supporting material highlighted in blue allowing a quick trip to scan the related article. I have only two complaints. First: many of the articles have animated memes or images that constantly alternate between one image and another producing pseudo-animation. This may be intended as an attention grabber, but it is also highly annoying and distracting. Seeing motion in ones peripheral vision tends to take the reader’s attention off the text and back to the animation. I have to resort to covering up the animation with one hand in order to continue reading. My other complaint concerns full-page advertising appearing in a several page article. The software resists swiping past the advertising to the next page of the article. I realize that this is done so people like me can’t simply breeze past ad copy that they don’t wish to look at. When I had only the print version of the Journal, I could easily ignore the advertising copy. With the online Journal I have to fight ad copy that refuses to yield to a page-turn gesture. I don’t like paying more than $400 a year and find myself forced to look at something in which I have no interest.
Really tired of your liberal approach when it comes to Donald Trump ... you do this by making all your pictures positive and happy when it comes to your liberal point of view ... not telling you anything you don’t already know well beyond my observations ...comes to the conservative point of view your pictures are all adjusted as to say a liberal point of you looks more appealing... I don’t write yellow journalism ... I will note however that you’re much better than all the fake news presented by the Washington post or the current media in California .... which is actually laughable and is joked about all the time .... makes for an entertaining evening .......something to note is that Hitler came to power with a very powerful Rich man backing him to start .... taught him manners ,to respond to questions etc....he became powerful because a millionaire wanted to use him and did just that ...he wasn’t counting on Hitler to have him killed three years later ....to get into power ironically it’s the Democrats billionaire that wants to impeach President Trump how ironic.... maybe you should write an opinion regarding how Hitler came to power and how the Democrats seek to regain their power.... now that will be a challenging article for the Wall Street Journal to approach..... not sure that your journal us are capable which is a sad statement to say
