Could you implement dark backgrounds. It’s too bright and opening in Firefox which fixes dark mode requires login again.
Layout and design looks very good. PLEASE ADD NIGHT MODE. PLEASE ADD NIGHT MODE. PLEASE ADD NIGHT MODE.
So far I’m disappointed in how late Barron's report to app users. Not sure who decides what top stock news gets pushed first, things need to be updated. I read on another platform about ROKU quarterly report April 13,2020, Barrons never sent a notification or have it as latest news. I don’t think I’ve gotten any stock related notifications. No notifications about BA 4/17/2020 I’m also reading Barrons news on other platforms speaking about current stock exchange’s such as Barclays analysts speaking with Barrons but no notifications from Barron’s app. I’m a new subscriber but if I’m going to continue to subscribe to your platform I do believe reaching your app users with quick current time related news is a must in 2020. Plus none of what I mentioned above is findable in the app. 3 stars because I like the app layout and easy to find currency value + navigation in the app.
It seems that they absolutely do not allow any printing from the app. They apparently also made it impossible to copy an article to paste into a different app and print from there. While I understand that they’re trying to protect their intellectual property, it’s hugely annoying and inconvenient. I mean, is it a huge problem for them, enough to justify annoying their customers? Or did some tech in IT say, hey people possibly maybe can sometimes cause lost business by printing and distributing articles so let’s block everybody including our honest customers. I’m sorry, but I still like paper for those few articles I want to annotate and file for future reference. The saving of articles in the app just does not provide the same convenience. Plus, I’m older and my eyes get tired faster reading on screens that with paper. It’s stupid, makes me want to cancel my subscription.
I don’t really understand why there is cheap ads in the app when you have a $15/month subscription.
Great look! Interesting articles! Very nice feel.
The Barrons App is Horrible. It never updates. I’ve emailed Barrons; got the automated response; but no one reached out. I’ve downloaded it multiple times and same problem every time. Truly pathetic.
Please address bugs in Watchlist. App seems to be a real laggard and needs improvements.
Nothing special, neither in a good way nor in a bad way. Could you please get rid off those huge spaces in between paragraphs? Articles look like an elementary school textbook. It’s even worse on iPad. A 1-sentence long paragraph, huge gap, then a 2-sentence long paragraph, another huge gap...
I am so frustrated with this app. The present problem I face is articles failing to load. Every single review in the App Store is negative. Can you imagine a magazine / newspaper company not being able to print and deliver a newspaper. That is the same failure now for Barrons digitally. The incompetence is hard to believe.
