    Wall Street Journal App no longer available?

    I have been running the Wall Street Journal App from the market for at least a couple months. Today, when I started the app, it gave me a message that this version was no longer supported. So I went to Google Play to update. Only to find that the WSJ App does not support my device(TF101). How was I able to use this app for a month. Now all of the sudden they are taking it away? The app I was using was by no means perfect, but it was reliable enough where it would download today's paper and i could read it regardless if I was near wi-fi or not. If anyone knows if I'm missing something here, please let me know. Thanks for your time.

    I must also say that in my haste I had removed the WSJ app as I thought that perhaps there was something wrong with the install. Now I do not have the ability to reinstall the app because I didn't have it backed up and I don't have an APK file for the version I was previously running. Thanks again.

    Backups are your friend!. You might send a message to the WSJ to ask what's up with that?

    I know on the PCs they have limited us to 10 articles a month without a subscription.

    I do have a subscription. It's strange because the reason I subscribed is because there was an app for the TF101. The app was pretty decent, sometimes there would be a force close, but it was few and far between. I just find the entire series of events very odd.

    If anyone hears anything let me know. I emailed wsj support but I'm not expecting any kind of response.

    The Google Store has pulled apps before, then they appear again some time later with no explanation. btw: just checked on my TF201 and a "full" reader shows up for $6, a Lite edition for free and a WSJ e-Edition. Probably no help but thought I'd mention it.

    Thanks for the heads up. I saw the wsj reader lite and full, but i was hoping for the full version from WSJ. It was so nice... 7 days of papers and the ability to save articles. I hope that the market pulled the app for whatever reason. Thanks for your time.

    WSJ Tablet App

    Incredibly, the WSJ Tablet app is incompatible with ICS. I sent an email to WSJ tech a couple of weeks ago asking when it would be fixed. No response.

    there's a shocker. A huge multinational Newspaper can't figure out how to get there app to work on one of the most popular android tablets.

    on another note.... why did the app work so long on ics before today. Very strange.

    thanks for the info, it is much appreciated!

    Here is the email response I received from the WSJ tablet support email address. I have a feeling that "Further Consideration and action" = NO SOUP FOR YOU!

    Thank you for contacting Customer Service for Application Support regarding your application concerns. We have forwarded your comments to our digital team for further consideration and action.

    Thank you again Kirk for your continued interest and support in our publication. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Please contact us again by telephone or email for further assistance.
