This app is inching towards redemption
Below was my original review from a year ago or so. Now, the app seems much more stable. But, the interface keeps changing and becoming more difficult to use efficiently. The most recent change (July 2017) creates new classifications for the articles presented, which I find confusing. And, opinion articles (at least articles labeled as opinion) are displayed more prominently than before. In the pre-Murdock days, opinion articles were firmly rooted on a couple of opinion pages, where they could be easily avoided. Not so, now.
If one wants to read the WSJ electronically, this app is ones option. So, alerting newcomers to the unending problem that is this app may prevent their unreasonable expectations of high quality, but that is about it. The design of the app is good, very good, but the details of its use are painful. About every 4 or 5 uses of the app, the entire iPad has to be restarted. Try clicking on a highlighted link in an article; the current version (6.1 (61,400)) blocks the linked location, until one enter ones WSJ password, again. This is the app I use most, but it is -- and has been for at least a couple of years -- the most frustrating app I use, by far.
New version is a huge step backwards for me
I've been reading the journal on an ipad mini for years and find it much more convenient than the print edition. But I cannot read it regularly so the ability to open the app to the issue/section/article where I was the last time is huge. Now it opens up by default to the Latest News (And there is no setting where this can be modified). Also they got rid of the ability to see a listing of all articles of a section by tapping on the icon in the upper right corner. Instead you have to click on the Next Article button to go thru the entire section. What a bummer! I read the journal for its in-depth article on topics of interest to me, not the Latest News or the Editorial section. I can live with the freezes of past versions, but this new version is a huge step backwards. Now I wonder what will happen when I step into an airplane to catch up on the journal. Are the issues of a few days ago still on my ipad? They may have gotten rid of that too.
Yet another "improvement." One good thing. Lots of articles presented in an orderly fashion on a page. Beyond that, even even worse. I want ONE menu, not two that switch randomly. When I go to a category I want to go through it and finish, then go to another category. Not a random flail across topics. If you take me to another location, I want to return when I'm done. And why would you put your scroll arrow in the center bottom where the iPad control panel is? Ask real readers before your next rev.
"Improved" version is even worse. Not only did we lose the scrollable list on the right, forcing lots of needless menu taps, but now we're also forced to page through slow-loading ads stuck in the middle of articles. And yet prices keep going up....
Update: I've learned to live with frequent crashes, but now your drop down category lists flip randomly between old and new sets, with things like latest news disappearing then later returning --makes no sense. Do you ever use the app?
