Latest update fixed most of what held this app back. I would still like to be able to read and submit comments on articles like you can on the desktop site. If that gets added, it'll be a flawless 5-star app.
If you wanted to use this app on flights or commuting without wifi access it will not work consistently. Sometimes the stories are there and sometimes they are not the pictures will mostly be missing and the graphics will always be missing. I always check to see its downloaded before i depart. But most of the time, without WiFi access, it will not display today's paper. Wsj cust serv says they are aware of the problem and may fix it. This is a frustrating app for travelers and it's multiple years of not working properly. Unfortunately the latest update has not solved the problem.
Very good bipartisan news coverage. No fake news here! My only gripe is that the app is exceptionally good for big stories, but for smaller stories, you'll need to either look for it or turn your attention to their newspaper.
The app is quite mediocre. Offline reading is very inconsistent, sometimes the article is there, sometimes not. The app crashes constantly. I can't read a day's edition without crashing at least 3-4 times. There is also a serious glitch. After a month of using it the internal storage on my phone was completely used. I investigated and turned out it was WSJ app taking up 4.5GB in files that were not easy to delete! (They're not in the usual user storage). Windows app has other issues but is better than this.
Poor value proposition. The monthly subscription is far too expensive for South Africans. Adverts in such an expensive service are totally unacceptable. The Guardian humiliates this app in my opinion, and will be receiving my money instead.
...driven no doubt by the best reporting in the industry. The app is not perfect, example, you can download a copy of the paper, but are not given the choice to go to that copy when opening the app, causing the app to first look for a Wi-Fi connection then bail out with a "no Wi-Fi" notice when one is not available...on long overseas flights for example. No doubt they'll work that out soon. If left open, in fact, when returning to the app, it will FREQUENTLY fail to properly load when opened. Reporting A+++
