Though the settings provide for font size adjustments, it only adjusts the heading text and not the body. This should be resolved to make the articles easily readable by customers with less than perfect eyesight.
The “Journal” is doing a good job as a local paper. It covers local, regional, and state matters well, with sufficient national and international coverage. It remains a broad spectrum publication, with a business page; and an editorial section with its opinions, and letters, and columns. It has weekly sections on food, gardening, the home place, the arts, and expanded editorial and business coverage. Sports coverage, particularly local, is thorough, but national sports are not shorted. The paper offers daily puzzles and comics for its readers’ diversion and entertainment. It is worth the subscription.
I have an iPad Pro with S/W version 15.2.1. The ability to move from page to page is totally annoying as I cannot go from page to page without it jumping back to the previous page. It is extremely erratic. It was a continuing problem well before V15. I view on my Pro in the horizontal mode.
I would have given them 5 stars if it were possible to comment on new stories. Maybe they could add that feature. Each update seems to make the app more pleasing. I'd like to suggest placing the lottery/game winning numbers their own category. I don't play and it just seems to clutter up the news feed unnecessarily. I do appreciate that I can read the stories here because they limit how many you are able to view on heir regular web site. Overall, I find the W-S Journal to be very responsive to suggestions and they welcome feedback. Thanks for that!
I have used the app for a while. The old version took you to a browser for the e-edition. The new one loads in in-app which is nice, but it does not allow you to rotate the device and view the edition in landscape mode. I find this annoying as I read the e-edition on my iPad and prefer landscape mode for this.
Why any app created in the last five years would not have a landscape mode is incomprehensible. I always use landscape mode on my iPad and rotating to read the W-S Journal is annoying. Get with the program coders!
One of the worst examples of leftist pandering in recent times. Their op-ed page prints mainly diatribes so disrespectful of a sitting President that at times they tread a very fine line between poor taste and downright treason. Too bad I don’t own a pet shop. Your circulation would increase dramatically.
Barely works at all on my iPhone X. It is extremely buggy and almost always freezes while linking to stories from notifications. I would have deleted the App ages ago if I wasn’t invested in the local news.
Excellent update. New UI is sharp and very user friendly, readability is enhanced, and improvements to images are a nice touch. Runs very smoothly so far, and the news ticker is clever and useful, too. Quality app. Four stars only because users should not expect this app to include all items from the print edition. Definitely worth having. Thanks!
App crashes constantly. I have to log on multiple times: to read page 1, then again to read the next page, and then again (twice each time) after it crashes (which it does several times). Sometimes a version that allows "view text" and "view page" options comes up. Other times a version that is simply a too-fuzzy to read facsimile page comes up. What was once a pleasure--reading the digital paper in bed--is now a frustrating and time-consuming exercise in futility. "All Access" is a complete misnomer. Please fix this or go back to the original app!
Love the app. I read the Journal when I'm out of town. Also, I'm retired, so even when I am at home, if I don't want to go out and get the paper in the freezing dark, I can read it in bed from my tablet in comfort.
I have never been someone who reads newspapers. It just takes too long to find the few things that I am interested in. I can find everything with this app so easily. I love the way everything is separated but can be found so easily. Thanks for providing this to us!!
They send push notifications, typically used for breaking news by all other publications around the world, to push random articles. If you decide to take their bate, you end up using up one of your limited free articles. You can only read the first paragraph of articles on the app anyways, and to read more you have to click a link, and after 15 articles you have to pay for this service, unlike the apps for most any other publication
The Journal apps are very useful. Why can't the obits be reached from my iPhone ??? That was very useful to me since I play for a lot of funerals in Moravian bands. Always questions about the deceased that obits would answer.
I give it 2 stars. It rarely ever updates on my iPad. Even when it does it doesn't have all the stories that the paper version does. I still get the paper version daily. I have never been able to download the Sunday paper.
Not a good app to have. After review of 25 articles they want you to purchase a subscription just like you are on their website . This should be listed in the description for this app. Would not recommend this app.
