Review from Richard Calderon
Mostly great app however for some reason I have to keep entering in my credentials which is inconvenient.
First of all the WSJ is great journalism. The app is pretty polished, intuitive and has a lot of good features. One thing that is quite annoying however is ads remain in the app for those who have a paying subscription to the WSJ. Once ads are removed for their paying customers, this app would be 5 stars for me.
I use the app daily. It crashes a minimum of once usually twice to get through the paper. This is unacceptable. Considering suspending subscription until fixed. Other than that would rate 5 stars.
I am not a big reader of the Wall Street journal. I have found it a good read. But I had some problems using the app. I have decided to not to continue with the subscription.
Love the content but very frustrating to use. It crushes often and doesn't update to show current articles. Articles appear in other sources than they do on this site.
It is unbecoming of what should be a respectable publication to try to hustle customers for money. Signing up for a trial is super easy (of course) and the promise is: only 1$ for three months trial and you can cancel any time. But when one tries to cancel by sending an email as requested (after less than a month I must say), then no cancellation is possible except by phone to a special US number that always rings busy. Now I've been given a number in Hong Kong. Let's see if I get anywhere further. This is STUPID SHORT TERM MARKETING BULLYING in order to charge a credit card on the anniversary date. Again, that's confidence tricksters scam and unbecoming on the age of permission marketing. I've lost all respect for WSJ. By the way, the reason why I want to cancel (and now tell everyone to NOT subscribe ever) is that I am already a PAID SUBSCRIBER of NY Times, Washington Post and The Guardian and I felt that the content of the WSJ didn't add anything to my news awareness.
Updates helped some. Content good. Not sure why can't recall who I am. Having to continuously re enter user name and password limits utility.
