Download Barron’s App on my IPad Go thru trouble of enter the ticker information in the Market List But prices never populate on. The app App works fine on IPhone. Also there is no direct link customer support in the App All questions I have never responded to
So where to begin: first their electronic edition reader doesn’t work and is so buggy I don’t even try to use it anymore. Honestly very amateur hour. If you want to go into the regular app and have the audio read to you, your listen back choices are super stoned slow reader or super stoned slow reader. so if you’ve got 18 minutes to listen to an 100 word article- great. Contrast this to The Economist: in their app, you can download the entire issue, you can pick the playback speed, you can pick it up and stop it with one touch and it remembers where you left it last. Here with Barrons dinosaur app you have to do this w each article separately and the app doesn’t let you just listen to the edition with a click, it doesn’t remember your place, and again only one painfully slow read-back speed option. It is so overall 2010 buggy technology time warp with Barron’s . I am really really disappointing for such a great great publication to have failed to translate that into an equally great (or even passable) app experience. Why drop the ball like that ?
The app by default doesn’t adhere to the OS theme on iOS devices. This just shows a poor app experience while reading when dark mode is the norm.
“this stock is on fire. the reason isn’t what you’d expect” that’s some hot clickbait right there. i thought barron’s was a reputable publication.
1. I clicked on a story 2. Click on the comments icon 3. Type my comments or I even tried it blank 4. When I click on sign up to post, the app crashes 5. Expected behavior: when I click on the comment icon, I should be single signed on to the comments page and only the submit or cancel buttons be available. I should not be asked to sign up for posting the comments.
Have comments been removed? It was one of the best features. Yes, there were some annoying bad apples, but many others who provided insightful thoughts and dialogue
Barron’s publication is very good, however the app needs a lot of work. It constantly freezes and shuts down at times.
1). There is no way to provide feedback in the app. Would be better than having to do it here. 2). When hitting app help button here it takes you to the Market Watch page and asks you to subscribe. Reinforces desire for feedback to be provided here. 3). Some paragraphs in the app end in … When this happens it is cutting off the end of the sentence and you have to go to the e-edition or actual paper to get the line. This is not real convenient. 4). Commenting is no longer allowed. Not sure if this is a programming problem or a management problem. Not sure if comments are allowed on internet or if the each edition can be viewed on net as opposed to ah hoc article listings.
Content in the app is cutting off paragraphs mid-sentence, which has been highlighted for more than two months to the dev team. Contrary to comments in the recent Barron’s app update, this has NOT been fixed, paragraphs are still randomly ending in …, preventing proper interpretation of authors insights. Please fix.
