What's New in Version 8.2.1
Thank you for updating your app. In our 8.2.1 release, we have fixed a few bugs in the Saved Articles section and improved the way the app updates with new content.
1) Terrible Navigation – There is no corresponding Table of Contents: The 3-line menu bar in the upper right hand corner does not lead to the same Table of Contents as the print or online/webpage version. For example, it will present “Business and Finance”, but not the “Markets” section. Worse yet, the customer service technician explained that it is impossible to reach the “Markets” (or any other section) directly from the current issue!! (Instead, one must close the current issue and then open up the “Latest News” section and swipe through multiple other sections to find the one desired.) Finally, it’s incomprehensible that the “Latest News” section, which used to be comprised of the current issue plus updates, contains article that are more than a day old/older than the current issue!!!
2) Slow loading: This update loads far slower than the previous version!
3) Too much video advertising: Video advertisements are prohibitively long! So much so, I don’t even bother to click on the videos anymore.
4) Saved articles are cumbersome, and apparently not transferable to new tablets: One cannot access saved article from different devices. Apparently, there is no way to save and transfer them if I get a new tablet!
Conclusion: This version is a few strides back - It’s quicker and easier to read the print version! Walt Mossberg, where are you?
Do u test the app before u deploy updates?
I have been a WSJ app user since the day it was first published. I use it (or at least try) everyday exclusively. I cancelled my print version. I pay several hundred $s a year for this subscription. So I am not a casual user.
When this app works it's awesome but it has a history of getting totally destroyed by what can only be said nicely is incompetently managed updates. The latest fiasco started on the early Nov update that slowed the app down, but most annoyingly made the saved articles feature. I save articles my first pass through to read later. That feature not only doesn't work now, but if you go there the app freezes and kicks u out.
So I was pleasantly surprised when yesterday's update said it addressed this issue. Did it succeed? Heck no!!!
This is maddening for users who pay substantial money for this subscription but should be embarrassing for the entire WSJ organization. Can you guys who run the electronic version not hire programmers who know how to test before deploying? If not, maybe you should be replaced.
This is a big deal. Either fix this...and fix your methods or lose long time paying subscription members who will seek their news elsewhere.
WSJ App has Improved...and now has stabilized
The only fault I hadwith the current app is, on occasion, it doesn't install promptly. I really enjoy the left-sided summaries; but most of all, I like the full "right-to-left" swipe which brings up news categories which, when opened, indicate which articles have been read.
Re-looking at THE WSJ App again months later from my prior review, I'm happy to say that it performs flawlessly, presenting solid articles in a user-friendly format.
Another review, further down the line (12/15), confirms that WSJ app upgrades have created a great reading experience.
