Still needs work
The content and presentation of the WSJ are good and fine. I look forward to a click and read every morning. Sadly I've accepted that I am going to be gouged financially for online, iPhone and iPad access to the tune of $207/year. The critical feature that needs to be added is a basic text view for the ipad without the videos and images. This is important for when I'm one the go and using 3G; especially when being further by AT&T's international roaming plan. Another user importantly points out that each issue can be 15+MB. Otherwise I think the developers have done a reasonable job of fixing the prior crashing problems. One should be able to select which version to download based on the type of connection 3G vs wifi. Finally I'd like them to work on the gesture sensitivity or allow us non New Yorkers to avoid the greater NY content I'm subjected to with every inadvertent swipe of the hand. Developers please respond and give us options. Just let us download a single issue as published as a pdf and not spin constantly looking for updates. I love my local paper print edition. Give us the same for the wsj app. The content is so good but the digital delivery is so bad it's making me think of dropping my subscription.
Great content, app getting better
I still maintain the app is getting better. Landscape view and night time modes would be nice. Pulling up the last article being read is a big improvement. It's getting there
I've been quite critical of the app delivery before. But I will say it is improving. This most recent iPad version is a lot smoother and crashes less than before. As always, the content is excellent and the interface is improving. I would say that it is irritating as I "flick" between pages of a story, that sometimes an ad will start out as a full 2nd page ad and the 3rd page will continue where the 1st page left off...however sometimes the font will rearrange itself and I will go back to the 2nd page and find that what was a full page ad on the 2nd page is now a 1/2 page ad and I missed some content on that 2nd page.
Gets Worse with Each Update - Go Back to Basics
Over the years this has gone from being one of my favorite to now one of my least favorite apps. Now full of bugs and irritating, slow-loading ads at every turn of a page. It used to have the look and functionality of reading the print copy. I am going back to using my browser and the print copy. I used to read the next day's editorials the evening before but now they delay the release of each day's editions. The "Latest News" updates are slow in being released and sparse. The originally designed iPad app was current and easy to use. Each new version gets worse.
Update: could you give us an option on how many back issues we want to store on our iPad? It takes up way too much space. But still the best news app and a great publication.
