A suggestion to WSJ
1. Bring back the older version that worked on all devices. (Yes, you will probably lose ad revenue).
2. Give your development team time to take a bottom to top look at v5.x (or whichever one started stable). Give them an absolute do or die deadline with some grace period (6+1 months?). After that period, TEST properly on multiple configurations.
3. Enjoy, and you can have your ad revenue back if the implementation is proper. Users will be able to read the articles within hinderance. If the development team fails, let it be their last fail in this area; go hire the team from The Economist or NYT or some other periodical app that works well. You’d have done us all a favor.
It seems to me the priority on multimedia and advertisements over usability is what led to the state of affairs. I’d be happier with 'traditional swipes' for articles instead of finger gymnastics.
Too many crashes
I've been waiting for an update that would address all the crashes so I was eager test the recent upgrade that claims to have addressed crashing issues. I'm thoroughly disappointed again that the crashing issues have not been resolved. It crashed three times within the first two minutes. Five times this morning allowing me to get through only two and a half articles before deciding to complain here instead of trying again to read an article. I may have to ask for a refund. I can't read the paper. Terrible. The developers need to test on all devices. There is no way this application could have passed the most basic testing. Crashes are unavoidable, the norm not the exception.
One reason I hate and don't love this app
I hate this app for one simple reason: they absolutely sinisterly block the ability to copy or send a full article to friends or colleagues. You cannot copy an article. You cannot mail anything more than a sentence or two. You cannot open it in a phone browser and do either one either. Once you "share" an article the recipient cannot view the full article without subscribing. They are so concerned about subscription revenue they've crippled the usefulness of this app. For the record I am a subscriber and love the app otherwise. You would think they would allow subscribers to share but they don't. I have tried to share useful articles with my college-age children and it's been frustrating.
