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.
Automatic Updating at Wrong Times (Really 3.5 Stars)
If you open the app after awhile, hours, a day, etc. the app will **not** update the stories automatically. While this may be good if you want to catch up from whenever you last opened the app (even if two or more days ago) it doesn’t make sense. Even worse is that you have to force it to update within a section, say Business, and can’t (as far as I can see) update all the stories at once from the main screen. While it’s updating you can’t navigate anywhere, i.e. it updates all the stories and not just the ones in the section, at once. As annoying as that is, a few minutes after you already **manually** updated it will update again, for whatever reason. After so many years and versions, you would think they could get updating, and the whole app, working properly — especially when you’re paying $$$$ for the content.
The reason for the 3.5 stars (instead of three or fewer) is that it’s actually a lot more stable than before, but comes with the updating tradeoff.
Older app was better
Third time reviewing. New issue download is working much better, and there are a lot fewer crashes. However, two things still need fixing: (1) Serving ads as you turn the page freezes up the process. This is especially frustrating as WSJ has a habit of splitting words across pages -- both digitally and in print. (2) Constantly updating the content while it is being read leads to the page disappearing for a few seconds only to re-appear unchanged -- unless he market is open and a publicly traded company is mentioned on the page. In that case, the current trading price is updated -- who cares?!?! If I want the current trading price, I can go get it -- 99% of the time, it is irrelevant to the article. Now three stars. ***
Still a work-in-progress. Crashes a lot, freezes a lot, has challenges working properly while downloading the latest issue, doesn't always download the new issue -- even when options are properly set. Considering this app is for a newspaper that I read six days a week, it's incredibly frustrating to use. Two stars **
Not as good as the old stand-alone version. It crashes or locks up more frequently. It also doesn't always load the new version of the paper. If the last one loaded was Wednesday and it's now Saturday, I have to reboot my iPad for it to recognize at the date has changed. Changing between editions or from the "now" version to the "today" version doesn't do it ... only a reboot
One star *
