Can download for offline viewing

At first there did not appear to be any method to download for offline viewing. In fact, there is, but only on a section by section or article by article basis. A download of the entire daily edition happened automatically on my iPad. Not having it here, and requiring several clicks to get the download of articles or sections done is a big drawback. Also, the gesture controls are more limited than on the iPad. The download task is hidden in the tool bar - three dots in the lower right hand corner, and should be more prominent.

isn't free!

I could absolutely NOT sign-in to this "free" app neither with my Microsoft e-mail nor with my g-mail. I strongly suspect, however, that WSJ needs your e/g-mail credentials in their paper subscription data base to sign you in to their app.

Worst WSJ mobile app

Of the available WSJ mobile apps, this is the worst. Navigation is skimpy, it doesn't tell you where you are, (Am I in the Opinion section or Personal Journal, for example), doesn't reflect the content of the paper as found in the paper or show the publication date. The iOS and Android versions are much clearer and more useable. This version crashes roughly as often as the iOS version, but the iOS version is much more intuitive, not because it's iOS, just because it has a better UX.

Lying Right from the Start

$99 / 6 Months is NOT Free at least in my mind. I guess it's a great paper but you could not access material without paying so I'll never know.




Platform: PC


Not worth the money. App doesn't start, is super slow (not linked to internet connection speed) and doesn't store for off-line use. WHAT A DOG!




Platform: PC

App has too many navigational cul de sacs

Update 7/18/16: Navigation of the app could be much improved. A "Back" button on the toolbar would help a lot.

Offline is useless

Compared to android version the PC version is only useful if connected. No offline paper, only individual articles. Offline articles are not organized into sections. Offline requires network to validate your paid subscription so YOU CANNOT USE OFFLINE ON A FLIGHT. Content is WSJ, but as an app terrible.

Cannot Auth on any devices

Much of the content is pay walled. If you have a WSJ account, all you get on any Win10 device (have tried two phones and two PCs) is an error when trying to authenticate. Over, and over, and..... Might be pretty nice otherwise. Given the cost of a subscription, not being able to auth is a pretty big deal. Not saying the pay wall itself is bad, just the inability to get through it.

Better. Wish scroll position was preserved on Back nav

Much better than it used to be. Muuuuuuch better. Four requests: 1) It's very easy to lose your place. I wish that the scroll position was preserved when you navigate back from an article. 2) I wish you could pin the left navigation button open. 3) There should be a button in the left nav to go directly to "What's News" 4) There should be an "In Today's Paper" button like there is on the WSJ website.

WSJ Subscriber effort to sign on

Great content. Often difficult to find/access online version of printed material. Requires manual sign on at each use, both phone and PC. Difficult to share content for some articles; must copy and paste.

Live Tile Improvements/Dark Theme

I would get a lot more utility from the app if the live tiles worked properly. That way, I could see highlights and interesting headlines that I may not have seen otherwise. So far, the live tiles haven't updated since I first logged in. I'm certain that 'Most Popular' isn't still that Trump beat Cruz in Iowa. A black background option, like on the Android app, would also make it easier for nighttime reading.

Not user friendly

Page turning and navigation is limited to using icons instead of just being able to swipe across.
