iPhone App: The Wall Street Journal
= 5 stars
Read The Wall Street Journal on your iPhone with this free, ad supported newspaper app.
- Runs more smoothly than the New York Times app.
- Ad supported: small banner ads appear at the bottom of each article. Some articles available on the app require a subscription on the website proper.
- In addition to text articles, also has videos and audio files (WSJ Radio) produced by the newspaper.
- Sometimes hangs at launch while checking for new sections.
A while back I complained about the lack of a great newspaper app for the iPhone. Well, The Wall Street Journal has delivered (pun intended). It’s good enough that I would have gladly paid for it, but guess what: this app is free.
If in the future, The Wall Street Journal decides to charge for this content, I’d pony up for the app and the content. It’s essentially an iPhone replacement for a dead-tree newspaper. Highly recommended.
