Best News App. Period. (All news, not just finance)
The Wall Street Journal has long been the pinnacle of business news with a reputation for finding and retaining the most talented business, financial and forensic investigative journalists in print media. I find everything the WSJ produces to be of top quality, be that print, audio (daily abridged version of the WSJ available through Audible) or digital through their app. All are excellent but the app is far and away the most versatile and the instant/breaking news alerts available through the application are fantastic and typically up with their information on the web before the competition and with much more detail as well. Bloomberg is good too (but more for straight market news), ditto Barron's, etc. I see the WSJ and this App as the perfect partnership of all the relevant news on The Street but better than the aforementioned business papers; coupled with the very, very best of hard, relevant news reporting harkening back to the days when the New York Times was THE de facto standard. The WSJ App is excellent, easy to use, carries the full information (sometimes more) as the print version. The graphics are tight and visually appealing, user interface is quite easy as well. I'd give this application 6 stars if it were possible. Excellent! Simply superb in every way! Bravo and keep it up!
To the point, every important point.
Hard news without a bias, cutting no slack to anyone. Editorials thorough and substantiated, written in excellent English. Besides providing information it is a very good tool to improve one's vocabulary. Rich in the use of the English language not just describes facts but enhances the reading experience. Writers knowledgeable of world history are able to provide an historical dimension to news analysis, relating the consequences of similar events elsewhere globally. WSJ provides perspective not easily found in other media. I often read articles by the Editorial Board and some contributors twice: once for the analysis value and a second time to enjoy (and attempt to learn) the beauty of their vocabulary and grammar. The penmanship of some of their writers often convey complex reporting into short, self-evident text by mastering the language in a thorough understanding of history, psychology and sociology: human nature with a historical, cultural and geographical context.
Depends on platform
I've been using this app for years on both the iOS and Windows tablet platforms. I'd give it four stars on the iOS platform and it was four stars on the Windows platform until four months ago when is simply stopped updating--same problem on multiple devices. I called tech support and reported it and they said that they were aware of it and were working on it. Four months later they still have not fixed it. Should I bother stating that this is unacceptable? This is not a free app; this is a paid subscription.
The WSJ itself is an excellent news source. But this review is supposed to rate the app and its functionality. My biggest criticism is the inability to copy more than one paragraph. This is silly and only wastes my time by making me go to my PC to retrieve the article again so I can copy and paste the entire article into a document (for my personal reference at a later date).
The iOS app also has a tendency to refresh frequently while I'm reading an article. Instead of taking me back to where I was, it reloads the article at the beginning, forcing me to go hunting. Bad design.
