Thanks to an app “upgrade” I can no longer read Barron’s on my iPad. I can’t even read it using Safari on my iPad, because the website makes me download the app — which doesn’t work!

Simbanetwork's Review of BarronsReviewed on 9/2/18 2:37 PM
Agree completely with the other reviewers that this app seems to bet progressively worse each time. One would think that you can keep it simple and allow readers to enjoy the reading rather than trying to make it fancy and keep introducing new bugs. The latest bug? It keeps telling me to update to the latest app, and yet there are no more updates. I am in an endless loop having tried all possible resets and clearing the cache.
Jestrauch's Review of BarronsReviewed on 9/2/18 2:18 AM
Barron's seems to have more glitches than WSJ and NY Times. I was not able to get he app to work this evening.
Sky dummy's Review of BarronsReviewed on 9/1/18 3:21 PM
Always problems with this software. The latest is the current infinite loop I'm in When I start app is forces me to update app. I update app and it still forces me to update app. The amount of testing performed before the release of new version was obviously weak as was the quality of the coding in the app There is an arrogance at Dow Jones IT in their wsj and Barron's app. Their paper franchise is so strong they can push low quality apps on their subscribers
Sink swim597's Review of BarronsReviewed on 9/1/18 2:12 PM
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.
HK Regular's Review of BarronsReviewed on 8/29/18 2:42 AM
The app constantly prompts you to log in. Upon doing so, if you navigate back to the subscriber only article, you are prevented from viewing it unless you are logged in! The figure in the upper right corner shows you are logged in even as you get the same message that the article is for subscribers only! Useless. Will be canceling my subscription.
Lok3y's Review of BarronsReviewed on 8/2/18 1:00 AM
You can get the app for free which is great. But In Order to read an article you have to pay 14.99$ a month. Just make people pay 14.99$ a month for the app. Business ethics people.
Desinova's Review of BarronsReviewed on 7/3/18 3:14 PM
As you read articles, you get rudely interrupted by their pop up marketing videos. When you pay for service, l don’t want to be interrupted by your sales marketing. If I wanted to watch advertisements I’ll turn on the television. Fix it and stop the pop up advertisements. Readers should have the option on whether they want to watch a stupid advertisement or not. The advertisement shouldn’t be forced upon them.

Funkydow's Review of BarronsReviewed on 7/16/18 4:08 PM
I use the Barron’s app on my iPad a lot, and on the iPhone some; either way, it just no longer functions properly. Recently, articles have begun to appear without any text; that makes it tough to read. And charts! Any diagram, table or chart cannot be expanded or rotated, rendering it either (a) just a smudge on the screen, or (b) massive 120-pt type where two words fill the screen. I just renewed my subscription, but if I have to read it on a desktop computer, I’ll reconsider; I’m increasingly using my mobile devices.

When you click on some link or stock quote and then try to go back to the main article, you are ALWAYS brought back to the top of the article. I waste so much time just scrolling and scrolling.

Capin131's Review of BarronsReviewed on 6/4/18 3:11 AM
The articles are the main show here and are great. Very informative and valuable. However, the app needs some work. I get random slowdowns where I can’t scroll down the article. If you exit the app to respond to a message and return, you lose your spot in the article. Extremely frustrating.
Running man 8967's Review of BarronsReviewed on 6/30/18 5:05 PM
Barron’s content is top notch, and a pleasure to read each week. That is, assuming you can actually read it given the continuous problems with the iOS app, and the extremely ineffective and ineffectual responses one receives from the tech support. All you receive is generic catch-all responses that clearly indicates tech support is not taking queries seriously or adequately researching the problem. Totally unacceptable from a subscription costing over $200 a year.
Stlbob01's Review of BarronsReviewed on 6/30/18 2:04 PM
Clunky interface. Hard to keep track of where you are in reading the magazine. Ads all over the place that do not download well further reducing the apps usefulness. Does anyone at Barrons actually read the magazine using the app? How can Barrons not fix these obvious issues?

Cordd5's Review of BarronsReviewed on 6/2/18 12:13 AM
Despite paying a premium subscription price to access the magazine, the app cripples itself by presenting distracting, full-color, moving ads alongside every swath of black and white text. The effect is wildly distracting, and will make the app unusable for a portion of its users. Disgusting.

Bg1000nickname's Review of BarronsReviewed on 6/12/18 2:43 PM
Prior to this latest app update, I could download and read an entire issue - in fact several issues - on the plane. Loved that feature as it allowed me to catch up with recent stories I’d missed. This new app requires an active internet connection, so I can no longer read on a long flight. Please restore the app to its previous functionality. Note: the Wall Street Journal app still supports offline reading. Barron’s and WSJ apps used to work identically. In this case, newer is not better.
Eagle3010's Review of BarronsReviewed on 5/5/18 12:13 PM
It seems that Barron’s feels that the well working app from a year ago needed to be “modernized” and thus broken. The sterile looking top stories section, now infused with ads, detracts from the excellent content. Get rid of the black! Expanding a graphic on an iPad is now unreadable. Any white background area becomes black rendering all text unviewable and unreadable. What used to be an enjoyable experience has now become irritating. Tied with the ridiculous price increase, not worth continuing my subscription.
DrWurm's Review of BarronsReviewed on 5/5/18 10:08 PM

Barrons Fan's Review of BarronsReviewed on 5/13/18 3:04 AM
I read Barron’s and WSJ on the iPad. Recently, if I am mid article and let the iPad go to sleep or I lock it and then I reopen the iPad and Barron’s/WSJ app, the the same article comes up but it is reset to show the beginning of the article. So you have to scroll back to where you left off. The apps used to save your spot in the article whenever you locked and then unlocked your iPad. Basically a pain in the neck since I read these papers and their articles off and on throughout the days.
Bradley omar's Review of BarronsReviewed on 4/7/18 11:52 AM
I have been a Barron’s subscriber for many years. Unfortunately they have started putting very intrusive ads in the middle of the story. The ads are very distracting and make the articles unreadable. I’m ready to cancel my subscription if they don’t stop the intrusive ads.

BradTrentNYC's Review of BarronsReviewed on 3/8/18 2:47 PM
I just upgraded to the latest version (3/8/2018) and while the platform improvements are sort of OK (swipe right to next feature instead of clicking an arrow being the best) there is...once again...a major flaw in the embedding of photos. Clicking on any image to enlarge it will show a large image..that is totally pixelated/out of focus! This had been an issue with the app from day one, but mercifully seemed to have been solved for the past year or so...but it's back! Whatever is resizing the thumbnail image seems to be simply making a lower rez jpeg bigger instead of loading a higher rez image! But at least to close the enlarged photo you no longer have to touch the image to get a 'done' button...maybe next revision you can simply use a swipe down motion to get back to the main page (like the WSJ and NYT apps)???
Natex73's Review of BarronsReviewed on 3/8/18 1:51 AM

The app is significantly slower to load stories after the latest app refresh. It is also arguably less attractive after the revised color scheme and font change. It was very easy to read and attractive in the prior version, it now looks worse. Great content, not so great design.

I use the app in my iPad and it seems geared to just deliver up the magazine, not the breaking news. It also sometimes just shows a blank page page if I am following a link from the alert on my screen. After frustrating interactions I usually give up on the app and just go to the main page via a browser. Skip the app, it’s not worth the pixels it’s painted with.

Osprey1955's Review of BarronsReviewed on 2/14/18 11:41 AM

I keep being asked to sign in and when I do, I am either denied or am asked to signed in again. Circular. Tech confines that I am a subscriber, and I continue to receive the paper hard copy but otherwise, Tech support has been anything but helpful.

Just going to give some advice if you decide to cancel you can only do so through iTunes, go to iTunes, account settings, subscriptions, click on Barron’s, then if you choose click on cancel. Barron’s was not clear on this process so wanted to give a heads up to any who subscribed and was lost as I was.

rberky's Review of BarronsReviewed on 11/18/17 1:36 AM
I’ve been using the iPad app for several weeks without any problem. Today was very different. Many articles only had titles with the rest of the page blank. I sent a message to Barron’s through the app and then received 6 emails from tech support 2 minutes apart that said they would respond soon. The eventual response told me to click on a few things within the app to fix the issue. Those things are not even in the iPad app. Apparently tech was using an out of date app or they are just crazy. I sent another email to them stating the problems with their solution and again received a barrage of irrelevant emails. The tech support is totally worthless and the problem with empty blank pages persists both on the iPad and the iPhone. The web site works perfectly. One star for really bad tech support. I’ve never seen such poor support from any company. You say apples they say oranges. Perhaps they should bring the support back to the Unites States from the Philippines.

RN1973's Review of BarronsReviewed on 10/14/18 1:15 PM
Those of us with iPads not capable of running iOS 10 can no longer even use prior compatible versions as of now. The old app tells us to download the "new and enhanced" version but we cannot because the App Store says it requires iOS 10. And the older version, while still downloadable, simply tells us to upgrade. I've never had this happen with ANY other app. It is find to not support older iOS apps but not fine to just cut off those of us who don't get the latest hardware every year. Let us use the old version unsupported! My six year old iPad 3 works fine with iOS 9 for everything I want to do .... Except read Barron's. Disappointed. maybe the website will still work.
