Ratings and Reviews

New app is a failure

Tammi Gaw

They claim they updated the app to make it more compatible with the website redesign but it won’t let you log in. The new web design is screwed up too (can’t view back issues of Morning Buzz/Closing Bell), so I would say don’t update the app, but it won’t work in the old iteration so just be prepared to not be able to use it.

Easy to read, nice layout


Overall I like the convenience of this app. It's easy to see all the articles, I much prefer this to the web version (I don't get the print version so I'm not sure how it looks).
Lower than 4 or 5 stars because I wish that there was a way to save or star or email articles from the app.

Just read the email version


This app adds nothing to the content and in fact further limits the sharing of content. Just keep reading the email version.
