This app is part of the new Responsive Design interface of Tecnavia's Bluebird interface.

This app improves the reading experience on any iOS device. It is more enhanced than viewing with the Safari Browser.

Readers can quickly navigate the entire publication using iOS multi-gestures. Swipe to browse pages or sections or tap a live headline or page number to reach your favorite article. A thumbnail view lets you scan all the pages at once. To read a story, just tap to zoom the page image, or tap to article mode and read the whole story, including jumps, in the text window at the font size you prefer. The e-Edition will also let you easily find topics using the section and story index, or find any ad or story via a full text search of words contained in the copy.

Just open the app to get the latest edition for on-line or off-line reading. You can also access back issues that you might have missed.To use, just download the app and select your publication.

Usually great

It’s broken right now- perhaps it has to catch up with the latest iOS update- but I love this app. Makes reading the WSJ a pleasure. No comments, no animated crap, just the paper. Easy to navigate. Thank you.

No Full Page View for Text

I use three apps to read newspapers on my iPad mini. The best of the three is the Olive app I use for my local paper. Second is the Press Reader app I use for The NY Times. This app is a distant third. The primary reason for this rating is that the app does not allow a full screen option when viewing an article in text mode. When viewing in text mode, half the screen is always dedicated to the digital replica view and half to the text. I don’t understand while you cannot utilize the full screen for text mode and then close when you have read the article. On an iPad mini, you have to continuously scroll the article text when only half the screen is used. Bluebird developers, please take a look at the Olive app used by Hearst newspapers to see how easily you can enter and exit full screen text mode.

5 Star Awesome!

I don’t remember where I saw this promoted, but this is a hugely under-marketed, value-added service that WSJ print subscribers should check out. Think of it as an accompaniment to your digital subscription that provides real-time content (but without publishing dates in the case of iPhone). For those times you want to read the current or past edition of the print Journal, by section, this app is for you. They’ve done a great job with giving the option of reading a digitized paper version or a virtualized experience with GUI text accompanying the article.

Highly suggested and would be great to see Barron’s in the same app.
