Good app


It's free it's much better than buying long sheets or tabloids it is in your pocket all the time when you have a moment just read to your hearts content. It's my favourite app The sport section is really good. Murry on Rugby you won't get much better. Great app update news with some fun articles mixed in. Comments section so you can moan like the rest of opinionated readers. Some of which are full time.

Variety is the spice of Life


The range of topics covered by the Journal is extensive and detailed.
The option to make a comment is fantastic and especially more so when the Journalist responds .
Makes my day!
Keep up the good work.

My daily fix


The day would not be complete unless I checked news and sport in the Journal. Always up to the minute and of a consistently high standard .
