Today’s issue - when I try to listen to music on AirPods and read in the app the music shuts off - only happening with this app. Lately the ads constantly auto launch while I’m reading - non-stop.
Before I finish one article, the ad video constantly pops up and takes over the whole screen, with this creeping old man looking right at you then walks off to a chair by the cabin. What the hack? I can’t stand it. Even when I move the screen to hide the ad section, the video still takes over as soon as I read further down the screen. It’s so disruptive. Maybe it’s time to cancel the subscription.
Popup adds are getting annoying
I pay for a subscription, why does the app auto play an ad I don’t want to see every time I scroll?
The new upgraded Barron's app will not work with older iPads (#2) because the older iPad iOS cannot be upgraded above 9.3.5 and the new app requires at least 10.0. Barron's needs to come up with work around. After nearly 6 months Barron's has ignored numerous request to correct the situation. It is the only app where this has happened. My fear is that when Dow Jones also upgrades the WSJ it will happen there too. Another example of traditional media blowing it. Please revise so that older iPads can access the Barron's app.Now more than a year later still does not work. How about a reduced subscription price.
Ad is so annoying even in the paid app. Unbelievable!!
Unbelievable what is going on?
Log out, log back in. Ads. Restore purchases. Ads. Delete App, reinstall App, login. Ads. Customer service blames IOS 13 (they may be right). Still, I dont want to pay AND see ads. Without ads, still expensive. There are choices.
Same ad pops up multiple times while reading a single article. Bet I’ve had to X out of this ad hundreds of times the last few weeks. Making it very hard to use this app. Guess I should go back to the paper version - wasting paper and reading Monday when it finally arrives in the mail... or just cancel and go elsewhere for news
Those with paid subscriptions shouldn’t have these annoying video ads that keep popping up. Seriously??
