In this version of the WSJ app we have updated the Latest News widget on the Today screen so that it shows larger images and displays in either an expanded or collapsed view, and we have improved its performance. Add it to your Today screen by swiping right from the home screen, scrolling to the bottom and choosing “Edit”.
We have also made the app launch more quickly from background, restoring your last state immediately when returning to the app after 30 minutes or more.
This version also improves performance by addressing crashes some people experienced when opening push notifications, improving the reliability of background content refreshing and reducing memory consumption so that the app runs more smoothly on older devices.
Note that this version builds on our 8.0 release, which included major improvements to how the app brings you the latest news. On iPhone and in the iPad Latest News section, the app will automatically update with new stories without you having to tap for those updates. Be sure to have background updating turned on in your iOS settings to help ensure the latest news is ready for you when you open the app.
On iPad, more Latest News sections are now available both in the navigation at the top of section fronts and by swiping to the right.
As usual, thank you for your feedback. We hear it and more improvements are on the way.

The News Leader 5 Stars
By The 649
I had to get this app due to delivery issues. I must say it is worth it with your subscription. Very informative and up to date. Breaking news is delivered instantly and never misleading. A must have app for up to the minute news.
Excellent app by my fave newspaper!
Very easy to navigate and read, love it!
More Convenient Than the Paper
No pages to fold, no papers to take to the trash. This app makes it easier to browse the paper and to find what interests you much easier. I think it is the future of newspapers, and there is no single news source better than the Wall Street Journal.
Good paper as papers go
Very good app. Could be even better...
I use this app daily. In general, I give it 5 stars. However...
Give us more control over content downloads. Recently, during vacation, I didn't open the app for 2 days and then opened it while with sporadic Internet access. The app hung attempting to download old content and I was forced to uninstall and then reinstall it when I got back online. Being forced to download old content is idiotic. Give us a setting to download only the editions we choose.
The latest multi-page ads are incredibly annoying and hard to swipe out of. Please fix or remove them.
Still Some Quirks
By Pelican Pointe
Still has best ease of use and search capability but now blocks copying any text while using your phone even a two sentence paragraph to share with friends, since 11/15/16.
No noticeable change from prior review (09/15/16).
App is getting better but still has some issues. Articles shared with colleagues are blocked if they do not subscribe. Can share short paragraph only.
Search feature works fairly well but you must spell all words correctly (no forgiveness).
Updates must be "pulled" rather than just arriving. Some articles are displayed with synopses only.
Maneuvering between articles and sections has improved and font is readable. Thank you.

The WSJ app is easy to use & provides the access I need. Great app.
Wsj is innovative
I love this new UI. I also love the team putting extra effort to the VR section. Applying VR in financial world is fun yet challenge. Great work!
The mobile web page is better
By Sadie the Great Dane
Not as easy to use as the mobile web page. In the app, it's difficult if not impossible to find WSJ videos. I'm disappointed that I still have to watch ads even though I'm a subscriber. It shouldn't work that way.
Bugs, bugs, bugs!
1) swiping from the right no longer shows the article list
2) selecting an article from that list doesn't always close the list and show the article. Very confusing behavior.
3) lost the ability to copy a paragraph of text. Thanks for treating us like children!
The ads that require multiple swipes to get through are also a very unwelcome recent addition!
Great news source and great app
