Bug fix - operating in offline.
Very dishonest business. They use your email address and sell it to the worst spammers and crooks in the market. I tried them in 2011 and gave them my hotmail account. I noticed an uptick in spam emails but I couldn't confirm that it was IBD because I used to get few spams every week. This year, I gave them my gmail account, and I went from 0 spam email to several tens of spam email everyday. They were the only ones I gave my gmail email, no confusion here. I called and the rep didn't deny it, he said he would tell his supervisor to take me off the list. It's too late since it is already in all of the spammers chat rooms. Now, one mistake from my part and all of my accounts are at risk because of them.
Now, let me ask everyone one question: would you trust IBD with your money in following their recommendations while you can't trust them with your email account? It seems like they can't make enough money from selling their products, so they sell your email account to crooks.
Obviously I canceled my subscription and I will never deal with them again.
Beware of these crooks. O'neil might have been a good investor but he is long gone and ibd turned to dishonesty to survive.
Worth Every Penny
A trusted friend told me about IBD years ago. While the newspaper has never failed to impress me, the app always failed to impress. It used to crash a lot and I lamented it's antiquated tie to the print edition. Good News: the latest update is very stable and it includes an optional web-article style of interface.
While I appreciate the web-article option, I find myself returning to the old fashioned newspaper most of the time. One tap on an article zooms in to the print for scrolling. Two taps on an article brings it up as a web article from which you can tap "Next" for the following article. I personally prefer the print edition zoom option over the web articles.
IBD content has always been superb, but now the app is 100% stable. If I graded on interface only, this would be 3 stars, but the content easily brings the app up to 5 stars. If you are serious about the stock market, you will fall in love with IBD.
Looks nice, but slow and clumsy for serious research
I looked forward to using this app on my iPad 3, but I've found it disappointing for serious work (it'd be 4 stars for simple reading).
The basic problem is that it's very clumsy using eIBD to get information out of the newspaper and into anything else. Whenever one switches to another app (e.g., Evernote) and then switches back to eIBD, eIBD kind of starts over on the start-up logo screen rather than picking up right where one left off. This is very tedious, especially given the slowness of eIBD itself. (It will often be back to the same page one was on before, but not the same view, and given the density and slowness of each page, that's a big difference if one is in a hurry.)
For basic reading, 4 or 5 stars. But for research if one lacks a photographic memory, if one is trying to collate information in another program, it just doesn't work very well right now--2 stars. Not feasible to replace a PC with an iPad for this purpose yet, even though in principle it should have worked. Just too slow and clumsy at this point.
