The Search function is terrible. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Searching for a company name or ticker will sometimes link you to an article, other times it will show zero results (even though there ARE articles), and other times it will show you the articles but then instantly crash the app. Hire someone to fix this ASAP. Content is good, app needs work.
Free trial, easy to sign up, but it you want to cancel you have to call to cancel. That’s right, you can sign up with the click of a button but to cancel you have to call during business hours. Are they doing so bad that they need to trap costumers?
Going to watchlists it keeps crashing. Please fix.
I recently subscribed to Barron’s. I like the articles and insights, but the app falls short. The design feels dated. Sometimes Ike’s the articles do not loadWhen I try to search tickets or build a watch list, the app frequently crashes. I hope DJ updates the app to fix the issues and give it a facelift.
I was very disappointed with the email exchange I had with Barron’s. I spent hours jumping through hoops trying to get my subscription to work. The company will not conduct business over email and insist on phone calls. That’s a problem for someone who has hearing difficulties. I voted with my dollar by purchasing the Bloomberg and CNBC subscriptions instead and will never support Barron’s or the WSJ again.
The content is fantastic but the iPad app is frankly atrocious. It is quite annoying to deal with constant flashing by the photos and the tickers being broken. The app will constantly remind you the watch list won’t load. I love the content but this app is garbage. I actually just read the magazine via Google Chrome on their site.
The App is so primitive it kills the work of the authors/ journalists. If it is a basic reading app for pdfs then atleast get a night/dark mode.
I pay for Barron’s yet I am forced to watch loud flashing video ads while I read articles on Saturday morning. I don’t know what’s so hard about tables and images for the Barrons people, but not 1 table shows properly without getting cut off. There is no offline functionality. You download the magazine and if you open it on an airplane is says “unable to connect. Retry”. You still need the physical paper copy in 2020. Dow Jones hires really poor programmers
So many glitches. Does anyone at Barron’s read on IPads? The ratings of 4.7 out of 5 is really misleading. Look at the ratings for the last two or three years — really bad app reviews.
I haven’t been able to connect to ereader for past 2 weeks. Please fix your bug!!!!
