Next best thing to newsprint edition but does have bells and whistles
I think the navigation on the digital edition is great. Content for each section runs along the side margin allowing you to jump to the next article of interest. It is so easy to share an article via email and to save one or a whole section. I love that the current edition or any of the past week's editions are always available on my phone or tablet, even if I am far from home. It also updates with news throughout the day.
I have been getting both print and digital editions for a couple of years. I originally dropped the print edition but quickly found that I missed it. It is easier to read on porch outside or at my desk (coworkers know I am reading the paper and not browsing Facebook). I always seem to miss something in the digital version that would catch my eye as I reviewed each actual page. I especially enjoy the weekend edition in real paper format.
However, I am more efficient at reading the digital edition as it is easier to skip articles I don't think I have an interest in reading. if you are an old school newsprint reader this may not serve all your needs but it is a handy way to always have the paper at hand on whatever device you are going to carry anyway.
The latest version of the WSJ app has many excellent features. I like very much the real time updating of current news. The insertion of video embedded within articles adds a lot of texture and detail. It is extremely useful to have links to supporting material highlighted in blue allowing a quick trip to scan the related article.
I have only two complaints. First: many of the articles have animated memes or images that constantly alternate between one image and another producing pseudo-animation. This may be intended as an attention grabber, but it is also highly annoying and distracting. Seeing motion in ones peripheral vision tends to take the reader’s attention off the text and back to the animation. I have to resort to covering up the animation with one hand in order to continue reading.
My other complaint concerns full-page advertising appearing in a several page article. The software resists swiping past the advertising to the next page of the article. I realize that this is done so people like me can’t simply breeze past ad copy that they don’t wish to look at. When I had only the print version of the Journal, I could easily ignore the advertising copy. With the online Journal I have to fight ad copy that refuses to yield to a page-turn gesture. I don’t like paying more than $400 a year and find myself forced to look at something in which I have no interest.
I enjoyed the print edition for many years. I find the WSJ readable and significantly less biased than than WAPO and the NYT. I no longer read the NYT, WAPO or Huffington Post. I watch a lot of FOX and find CNN and MSNBC to be unbelievably biased. My pet peeves with the digital version of the WSJ is the way it is organized. It does not read like a newspaper and I find it difficult to find stories by headlines and importance. I find the digital version of the NJ Star Ledger much more readable and organized. I don’t particularly like what the paper says but I can find what I want to read by looking a pages and headlines. I guess I’m old fashioned, but I just can’t warm up to the digital version of the WSJ. The other pet peeve is if I go from an aggregator like Drudge to a linked WSJ article I run into the WSJ paywall even though I’m a subscriber and must then go to the WSJ app, log in and attempt to find the article I was trying to read and I’m usually not able to find it. Can’t there be a way to allow subscribers to go directly to the article without all the rigamarole. I read newspapers using headlines arranged by importance not section by section!! Photograph your newsprint edition an use an app like the Star Ledger and I would be a lot more pleased with the WSJ digital edition.
