    Forcing people to download your app so they can read your articles is just bullshit. Just let people read them online. After this review I'm going to uninstall and then quit reading the Journal online, because this is just bad practice.

    Only complaint I'd have is the need for separate apps for the different sections of the journal, not sure why they can't all be in the one app.

    Enjoy reading the news but large pinches of salt required. Better than rtpravda at hyping up the property bubble and being nice to the establishment.
