What's New in Version 7.7.4
- Fixed bug on iOS 10 where tapping a push notification wouldn't open its linked article
WSJ every day
My experience with this app has been uniformly terrific. The first thing I do every morning is sit down with my iPad and a cup of coffee to read the WSJ app. It is easy to navigate and presents the material in a completely satisfactory way. I use Evernote to save articles and The WSJ app and Evernote work extremely well together. The experience I have with this app comes as close as I think is probably available, at least with current technology, to Reading the Wall Street Journal in hardcopy every morning with the added benefit that I don't have to leave my house to get the paper every day and saving articles is easier, again, using a companion app like Evernote. Also, I love the fact that the app makes its journalists very accessible because at the end of most articles the journalist's email address is provided. For a cranky retired guy like me that is a real plus, although maybe not so much for the journalist.
Great App; Would be Outstanding if Downloaded Issues Could Be Read Offline
Update - one major improvement made, but issues still vanish when offline, and some stories don't open in the app, but in a browser requiring the reader to log in.
The major improvement made was linking of referenced stories (e.g. editorials and letters to the editor). It is great that you can open these items to refresh your memory.
A new and annoying feature, however, is that occasionally a store will not open in the app but will open in a browser requiring a login. That is not what I use an app for.
Finally, the main annoyance with the WSJ App remains. That is, if you are off-line the content vanishes. You can download all the issues you want, but if you go off-line to read them they will vanish. It seems this feature could be fixed, but it has not yet been.
I love this app, as it lets you select articles by either swiping pages or select from a list by section. Yes, there are pages with ads, just like the print version. But it's as easy to swipe past those pages as it is to turn a print page.
The one BIG area for improvement: currently, one can download a full issue, only to have it disappear as soon as you are offline. Want to load an issue when waiting for a flight read it on the plane? Forget it. The issue (and all others) will disappear. This needs to be corrected. That's the only fix I think this otherwise great app needs.
Good, not yet great
Don't get me wrong -- I love having the WSJ on my iPad. In fact the subway is so crowded, I wouldn't have enough room to turn the pages of a hard copy newspaper.
But I still have problems downloading the newspaper thru the app. I don't have a data plan for my iPad so if the issue doesn't download properly while I am still tethered to my home wifi signal, I can't read the current newspaper on my subway commute. Which is a really bad way to begin my work day! I've had the experience of trying to open my WSJ after I get in the subway only to find that, nope, I can see the articles but I can open them. Bummer!
Why does the app so often incompletely download? It seems to get stuck. Maybe a notification when it has completely downloaded would help users like me.
