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.

Needs better download capability

App works great to read articles whole connected, but I use my Surface pro and having to download section by section is not user friendly or efficient. This app would be my go-to if it had the same Download Today's Issue option that is available for the iPad app.

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.

Problem opening some articles, but like it otherwise.

The layout of articles is great, but sometimes, I'll select sun article and it will take more to the Store to"Find an App", when I'm already in the WSJ app. It will actually search and find the app I'm in and open it, but lots me in a loop.

This app is wonderful, but the white background is horrible.

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.

Quality content delivered effortlessly

I've been a die-hard fan of the print edition of WSJ for years. But this app is so good that I now prefer it over the physical paper. Clean, simple design makes articles easy to find. The interface is organized very well. The ability to read articles offline is my favorite feature. My one request is to have the ability to download an entire edition of the paper to read offline later. And full functionality to share article content with Pocket and it's partners (ex. "Poki"). Otherwise, the app is sublime. Great work!

Not a real app

I recently began making the transition from apple to Microsoft because of the surface and the possibility of having a pc and tablet all in one. However, the "app" is really just a shortcut and far inferior to the IPad version. The main issue being you need a connection to access it. Why can't it be made to perform as the IOS version and download today's edition for viewing on flights etch where you don't have WiFi? Otherwise it's useless as a tablet. At this point, I am still carrying the IPad for this very reason. Otherwise the surface is great, but until Microsoft get's a better app store in general, you really just have a pc.

Not Free. Requires a subscription.

I don't like that Microsoft labels this app as free when it requires a WSJ subscription to see anything more than the news headlines. Terrible user experience Microsoft.

No Live Tile

Fix the Live Tile so it updates ALOT more frequently. As of right now, I'm not even sure if the Live Tile works at all. My other News Media Apps are flipping Breaking News and Pictures all the time, this one just sits there. If this app wants to compete with others then the devs need to try harder.
