I like the balance of coverage and well thought out articles. Also receive great new alerts that can't be beat by other new apps (not too many but cover the large topics). I am a WSJ subscriber mainly because of the app. If there is something wrong with it, I have yet to find it. Full Review

1. Night mode is now available. Yay. 2. Articles can be searched and saved. Great. 3. Online Readers comments on articles are not available. Some of your readers are very well informed and share new perspectives missed by the author. I can see them on the website. Please make them available on your app too. 4. Months ago, I wrote a very angry review. Your product has greatly improved since. Kudos and thanks. Full Review
Benjamin Morris Published date: February 18, 2018
works smoothly, let me download an entire issue (!!!), huge since i only use this app when traveling. However still sends buggy notifications even though I have them all turned off, and there are embedded ads in articles that open links when I'm scrolling through. I'm already paying for this... Full Review
Kyle Downs Published date: February 2, 2018
Never saves my login information. Every time I want to read articles I have to re-enter my information and usually it gives an error saying my login information is incorrect. Sometimes I enter the same information several times and it works and sometimes I give up. A truly worthless app. Would be nice if it had finder print login... Full Review

activated free month trial but it doesnt work. keep asking me to subscribe. or log in if I am already subscribed but whats the credentials i need to put? why is it keep asking me to subscribe when I am on a free month trial. and I can see this under my subscriptions too. I gave up, uninstalling it now Full Review
Leo F Published date: January 28, 2018
WSJ has vastly improved the app over the last few years, but something has changed recently because it seems the number of ads embedded in each article has increased. While scrolling thru an article it is hard not to click them by accident. Even dragging your finger to scroll takes you to the advertisers site. I am a paying subscriber, but this feels like the experience I would expect for a free version.... I may cancel my subscription. Full Review
Mihail Dimitrov Published date: January 27, 2018
This is a paid subscription, yet it's full of adds. The adds usually take up to a half of the screen on my Samsung S8+. As I try to scroll down to read the next 10 lines of the article, it's very easy to trigger them, which causes the web browser to open up with the add's website. This is very annoying! This add pop up can inturrupt my reading expirience at least three-four times per article. Please fix you app. It's a shame to have this bad digital edition experience from the rang of a company like the WSJ. Full Review
Wei Lyn Lau Published date: December 28, 2017
I have trouble saving articles with this app. The star does not darken when I tap it and the article is not saved. Neither am I able to view my previously saved articles. I have had to uninstall it and reinstall it before I am able to save articles and view those previously saved for a day before I repeat the cycle. Another problem is that I am unable to view content offline and neither can I view comments or make my own. Full Review
Thomas Peschel Published date: February 1, 2018
The only issue I have is the invasive ads that pop up in the middle of the articles. It counts scrolling past the ad as a click, which then pops up a webpage for the ad. Also, I pay a lot of money for the news paper, why do I need to have ads in the app? Full Review
arthur sparks Published date: January 24, 2018
Get slammed with notifications that aren't important news and if you click on an article you want to read you have to pay for the app when you can just use their site. Instead of a phone friendly way to read wjs it's just a money wall would give 0/5 if possible. Full Review
A Google User Published date: February 7, 2018
Overall it's got good articles and is well designed. Unfortunately they make it near impossible to read even a single article without accidentally clicking on the ads which send you off to your browser to view them. The app seems specifically designed to capture typical scrolling gestures as intentional ad clicks. Very frustrating if you just want to read the article. I've never experienced this in any other major news app. Full Review
Albert H Published date: December 28, 2017
DON'T UPDATE. No longer able to save articles. 3 reinstalls. Its not my phone, it's shoddy programming from WSJ again. and it erased all my saved articles! Whenever you scroll it opens chrome and opens an ad. Saved articles don't get stored on the Internet like on NYT app, so they don't sync to other devices, and they're gone if you either have to reinstall the app, or get a new phone. Can't rearrange the tabs at the top. Will hang on startup if u only have 1 bar of service or no service. Full Review
Timothy Connor Published date: December 23, 2017
Ignores both the data usage settings and the notification settings. As result I'm getting story notifications and application is using data when I don't want it to. I've been forced to block both completely via Android's application settings. We will see if that works. I'm willing to deal with mistakes like this for most products from small developers. But in the US a WSJ subscription is almost $400 annually. For those costs this is absolutely unacceptable. No change in the latest version. Full Review
Mark Welty Published date: January 12, 2018
The latest update requires me to log in for every subscription-only article and half the time the login fails. Requires a restart to finally accept my login. I'm paying for the digital subscription and have no problems with the webpage. For $33 a month ($400 a year) this is unacceptable with this app. Save my login from my phone. Plus the subscription used to be $200 for last year :( I want to read the great news coverage from my phone, but I can't if it won't save my login. Full Review
Amanpal Nandra Published date: February 1, 2018
I really do enjoy this app, but every time I scroll through an article my thumb will go over an ad (not click, but show over) and open it up. It happens way too often and is very frustrating Full Review
K.M. Burchard Published date: January 12, 2018
This an white, elitist paper . Some great articles but taking too much time to read. Also prohibitive costs for an 81 yrs. Old man disabled with no increases or very little of Soc. Security but fast increasing medical bills plus other support costs. But this Chief Editor does not know the real world. Full Review
Frank Balboa Published date: January 6, 2018
WSJ have our subscription hostage. They are happy to take payment online but requires a phone call to stop a subscription, backwards approach to today's tech society, any business doing this deserves to go under. Full Review
Bryan Beirola Published date: January 24, 2018
Recently the saved article section has been having issues. I can't save new articles and I can't see articles that I have saved in the past. Resetting the app has fixed it twice (restoring the saved section and letting me star-save again), but the issue has come up again today. Full Review
David Hoang Published date: December 31, 2017
This is the best news coverage application, by far, when compared to others. It is frequently updated and sending out newsworthy reminders. I have no technical issue with it on my Samsung Note 4. The subscription is on the expensive side however. Full Review
Published date: January 27, 2018
I love reading WSJ but the recent update they made makes ads open all the time. As you're scrolling through an article, your finger will trigger the ads to open simply by scrolling past it. This is intentional on WSJ's part because it raises the number of clicks advertiser get from app users. Very low brow move by WSJ. I expect this from BuzzFeed, not WSJ. Shame. Full Review
Stefan Hartung Published date: February 1, 2018
Too many ads which are easily triggered by scrolling through an article. A lot of articles are locked requiring either an additional subscription or won't open at all. I use the WSJ app several times a day but it's slowly becoming a nuisance not being able to read an article without being interrupted by a triggered advertisement pop up. Full Review
Lance Howe Published date: January 21, 2018
The app should allow for password storage, entering a pwd each opening is irritating. Great layout and i like the options to save/ tag articles for future reading. Full Review
Published date: December 31, 2017
Every other update wrecks the Saved Articles function and deletes all your saved articles. How hard can it be to make a bookmark? Luckily I will not have to suffer with the rest of you anymore, I've gone to the dark side, cancelled my subscription and subscribed to the NYT. I'll never be able to read an editorial ever again, but at least I'll get the news Full Review
Blob Blobbed Published date: February 7, 2018
WSJ's reporting is top notch but this app blows. The search stinks, articles never save when I try to save them, the layout should be resizeable, sections should be combineable. Also eith the saved atticles, it woulf be nice if we could categorize An annotation functionality would also be sweet. Where's this $1 day going WSJ? A woman of ill-repute was the biggest story you broke all year, It's true we're paying for the content and not the app, but for people who read probably 75% of the news on their phones, a useable app is a must. Just hide all the settings real deep in the app somewhere thst the elders wont find ut Full Review
Craig Snoke Published date: January 13, 2018
Like other users, no longer able to save articles, which worked fine a few days ago. My previously saved articles have disappeared as well. I'm paying for this? Not for much longer Full Review
Brian Walker Published date: January 18, 2018
Generally nice, but lots of ads and frequently crashes or glitches. Also goes through MOUNTAINS of data if you turn on background updating -- would be nice if it could update only text in the background. Full Review
Ahmed Alhassan Published date: January 25, 2018
Fast and clean app, with excellent writing and journalism. But I wish the app had the same content and subcategories as the website to make it easier to find what you're looking for. The app is minimal and missing things such as podcasts. Full Review
FRANK MONNELLY Published date: January 11, 2018
In the past month, got message 'Login failed registration' multiple times. Bug in the app. Totally frustrated. No problem with other apps. Full Review
Darrin Morgan Published date: January 22, 2018
I signed up to the service through Google but I couldn't get logged in. I contacted the online support and they never did help me. After the third attempt they told me that somebody would contact me but no-one did after 2 weeks. Terrible service and a complete waste of my time. Full Review
Thad Conn Published date: December 27, 2017
Content Unavailable...constantly. I read the WSJ almost daily. I travel a lot too and therefore read many times when I don't have WiFi in flight or while in the climb or decent and the WiFi is off. The app on both my phone and tablet locks up an says it can't load content. Blank screen. It also has a lot of articles that go to WSJ online content. What good is that!? I can't read it. Fix the app so that it doesn't lock up. Also be cautious of background data. This app burned through 16 Gigs (yes, you read right) of my data. Full Review
Thomas Friudenberg Published date: February 11, 2018
Accepted the free trial, they charged me $32 on my PayPal, then I tried every way you can think of to log in or sign up and the app keeps saying the info you entered is not valid. Change my password several times. I finally gave up. Full Review
RJ Egnor Published date: January 30, 2018
Pretty disappointed in the app as the inclusion of ads for a steep monthly subscription is beyond ridiculous. Also, the current design of the app will open an ad if you are just scrolling past it. I probably get 1-2 hits per article to the point where I don't enjoy reading my news from the app. The website is much more friendly but it just sucks because the app has so much potential. Full Review
Yuli Chang Published date: January 3, 2018
Doesn't cache daily articles correctly. Relies too much on network. Would be great if it cached all text first, so you could always read the articles. Then pulled pictures if network available. Full Review
Ryan Drzewiecki Published date: January 11, 2018
Good except if you want to cancel service. You have to call in to Dow Jones WSJ to cancel service which is a huge waste of time. However, I still have the app and the subscription. So I dont think I can complain to much. Full Review
Aidan Wilks Published date: January 23, 2018
Despite registering, giving credit card information, and getting a receipt, was unable to log in. Buttons were broken. Reset password option never triggered an email. Extremely poor experience. 1month free and then $42 / month after?! Wow! Full Review
Catherine Cleveland Published date: February 2, 2018
Signed up for free trail never got access or login credentials after downloaded and erasing, canceling and receiving signing up.... Nothing. Extremely annoying. Full Review
Thomas Firey Published date: February 2, 2018
The "content unavailable" bug is back again, meaning the app won't load any articles unless you have a direct link from the WSJ website. There's no work-around in the app to circumnavigate this problem. This bug happens regularly and makes the app useless. Junk! Full Review
Pawan Saini Published date: February 5, 2018
Hi.. I have subscribed your app for free trail. However I am not able to login and read the entire article. Please help me with my user id and password. Full Review
Tom Sardo Published date: January 27, 2018
The app is great. Good honest reporting with everything EXCEPT for it coverage of politics. Not accurately reporting or disclosing all of the facts about the special invitation and protecting the crooked Mr Trump is appalling for a paper such as the WSJ. Full Review
Nick Haase Published date: January 12, 2018
It has trouble connecting to the WSJ server when I bring my phone out of airplane mode. Also, the ability to save articles is not working after the latest update. Full Review
