A Fidelity ad forcefully pops-up about 6 times per article. If this isn’t corrected, I’m cancelling my subscription.
The app is brutal. You can’t go 1 minute without a 30 second pop up add interrupting your paid subscription. This is in addition to the steady flow of adds in the article that are all to easy to tap as you scroll. I could del with those. However Barrons is by no means cheap and the pop up adds are honestly the worst I have seen in a paid subscription app. Just plain terrible. Do NOT recommend.
Content is great, but app behind to comparable providers. Some key pain points are: no offline mode and auto play on ads is super annoying.
I’ve been reading Barron’s literally for decades. I want to read the articles in the same order as the printed version, but that’s impossible. It also forces you to read by scrolling down instead of flipping pages. Why can’t they take a hint from the Kindle??
(The support email bounced back. So sending feedback here) Quotes characters and apostrophe are missing in the articles of the Barron’s app.
Please add the morning and afternoon digest feature that is on the website.
What kind of business acumen does it take to see that DJ sells subscriptions, not hardware? If the app is meant as value-added to my subscription, then an app incompatible with my device is actually a disincentive toward renewal. D(J)uuuh.
Barron's requires download of their update which does not support iPads with versions lower than 10.0. And based on reviews here is totally aware of the problem for many months now. Older iPads users can now only read off the website. Shame on you Barron's for hiring sub par techies
Can't believe the smart people at Barron's would be so dumb to make a new app that does not work on IPads with prior operating system...and will not allow previous app to be used. I just cancelled my subscription.
terrible customer service Didn’t even try listening to the problem that happened to me simply just shoved it off
