Originally I reviewed this poorly because it continually used more and more of my storage up to 100% of what my phone has to where I had to uninstall it. The latest update seems to have resolved the issue. The app user interface itself has always been excellent, so now the storage issue has been fixed it's great.
Lost the blue Got rid of the blue theme which seemed too much color for a historically monotone color schemed paper. Still off green, but much better. Aside from that, the nav seems less intrusive so I feel like I am reading a publication vs social media.
The advertising is oppressive While I generally enjoy the Articles and news presented through this application, the amount of ads throughout and required 30 second video ads for every news piece is oppressive. I pay for your service. I shouldn't have to deal with ads that make me wait. If, for some reason, I have to pause a video and switch apps, when I switch back, I have to watch another 30 second video clip about an advertisement. I am very likely going to discontinue my subscription for this reason.
Does not consistently work for offline reading 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. 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.
The app is great I'm in my undergrad and this app is a great way to stay connected to what's happening in the world. It downloads the latest issue overnight via wifi so then I can read the articles at my leisure throughout the day without using any data.
Crummy app, great content Downloads are slow, incomplete, articles sometimes garbled, charts/photos missing, no way to download complete issue to read on airplane. App is confused about current date, especially on Fri, Sat, Sun, and Mon, when the issue menu omits one issue and shows a Sunday edition (which of course does not exist).
Our 3.7.1 release includes more improvements to content updating and the reliability of live stock price information.
We have also fixed an issue some readers were experiencing that asked them to log in repeatedly when opening subscriber-only content.
