  • Just Awful

    By DAugKjr
    It takes multiple screen taps just to open up the Settings page, and even at that, I have to tap slightly off the ‘Settings’ icon just to get it to work, after tapping repeatedly. And I have a brand new iPhone, so it’s not my screen. The login functionality via my company subscription is just terrible. Seems I have to request a link each and every time I want to log in, but each link is only good once for 8 hours. So if I log out of the app (staying logged in doesn’t seem very secure), I literally have to wait another day to log in. All very frustrating. I would expect better from Dow Jones.

    By reybako
    Best app to source selected news on your industry and/or area of interest. It was always a great App and I was sad when it went off to make room for Flipboard. Welcome back !
  • Disappointed

    By Disgruntled ESPN user
    The user experience is very disappointing with this app. Why do old articles still appear days after reading them?
  • Staying in the know

    By Ferraricali
    Great news app that keeps me up to date on topics I care about.

  • Of all the apps the one that really had to be made for ipad doesn't work on an ipad.

    By Kala_kata
    1. Doesn't let you type your username and password on an iPad. 2. Tried working around it. Typed user and password in my notes copied them to the form. the app automatically turns the first letter of ID and pass into capital and turns out this is the first app in the human history that has case sensitive ID. 3. Tried working around that too. Decided to change the first letter of both pass and username to capital letters. Turns out this is the first app after the civil war that gives you the option to change your username and password but doesn't allow you to change it, by saying "you are not allowed to change your username and password"
  • Welcome but crude

    By IPimprove
    It's very nice to finally see the return of the Factiva app for smart devices, but it is very crude and not really working reliably. Is it being maintained at all? One can only hope that this is just the start. The save function is not working (yet) and some obvious missing functionalities are: - Search! - Landscape view - Text size choice - Alert settings Excited to see how this app develops.
