Great version, easy to navigate

I have been reading other reviews where people have stated that there is no index, or hard to navigate. There is a wonderful index (at least there is while I read on the Nook). In order to get the index (and for the index of any other paper one reads on the Nook), you hit the little up arrow at the bottom of the page (same arrow you hit when you want to resize text) and hit "content". A nice index comes up. At the beginning of each sub section is a summary of every article in that sub section. Either browse though that, or click the title of the article, and it takes you directly to that article. As newspapers for eReaders are still "new", as much as many people are trying them for the first time, there will be many who jump to give negative reviews based on format, without realizing that the issue is simply that they have not yet learned to use their e-reader correctly yet. Over time, this will be less of an issue. Newspapers will continue to optimize there formats as well, making them even better.

Navigation is less than ideal, but you do get used to it and get to a point where you can move around pretty well. It has never frozen my nook. There have been no delivery glitchs in the three months I have been using it. On the other hand, even with these glitches the fact is that I have my paper each morning whether I am home or not and it's not delayed by bad weather and I don't have to dig it out of a snowbank.

I think that the price is a bit high, given the savings to WSJ is saved paper, ink, labor and distribution costs. On the other hand, there is no advertising in the e version so some of that revenue has to be made up somewhere I guess.

All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with it.

    Superior content, on a great canvas.

    This eNewspaper has more than made my nook purchase worth it. It's delivered and ready to read which is conducive to my early morning schedule. The content is superior and reads well on the nook screen (no eye strain). Slight criticism - the navigation can be clunky but you get used to it. It'd also be great if they could push market data to the device, maybe for the next version.

    WSJ Maintains leadership in the eNewspaper arena

    The WSJ Edition on Nook is certainly an impressive product offering on the part of WSJ. Despite the inherent device limitations of the Nook, the WSJ edition has maintained its superior stylistic appeal. The content is the best, as always, and clearly ranks above all other eNewspapers currently on the market. Highly recommended subscription - a good investment !

    Worth it!

    It's been a while since I've had the print version - while the electronic version has less content than the print there is still that valuable content available. Most, if not all, of the sections are available. The issue does have the New York City edition, possibly because I am on the east coast, which really didn't interest me as much. It does take a while to get through, however if you are in need of financial information it is worth the subscription.

    Very Good Application

    I enjoy reading the Journal in Paper form but find this much easier to travel with and stay current. Highly recommend WSJ on Nook.

    Great Paper

    What a great paper. I could not believe how much content was in this for an electronic version. It was very easy to navigate through the stories. It includes us and world news as well as the financial news. Well worth the money!!!
