On your BB browser, you can go directly to

www.wsjmobilereader.com

to get it.

If you go to the WSJ mobile site on your BB, there is a link at the bottom of the front page which installs easily. I have it up and running now.

Downloaded it and it works great! Much improved over the shortcut to the mobile site. Thanks Kevin!

This is a great, easy to download app. The format is easy to read and best of all, I can get wsj content for freee! So good.

Very nice app - easy to download, well designed interface, easy to read and use.... thanks Kevin (and WSJ)

Downloaded directly from BB browser and install with no problems. Excellent design and user interface. Recommend to anyone. I have been using Yahoo Go 3.0 and this application I think is better, easier and faster.

I like the idea... but everytime I try to get a full article I get

"A Communications Error Occured"

and nothing shows... I have tried like 10 times and reset. Still doesn't work.

Sprint 4.3

Anyone have luck with this for Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile? I keep getting the same connection error messages that gameboy213 is receiving.

Hi -

Yes, the communications error that you saw was a temporary problem and is now fixed. Please try it again!

Hope you enjoy using the application.

Thanks,

Just got an email from the company. The server was temporarily down, but all is well now! Mine works fine.

gameboy213

it worked for a couple of days, but it hasn't updated any news in several dates. i've pressed for updates several times, but nothing comes of it.

I am having backup problems with only the profiles module and wondering if its related to the WSJ alert that is now default in every profile since loading the reader. Anyone else having issues?

I checked over at BlackberryForums and many others are having this same issue with this reader.

Is there a link on WSJ's site for the BES version. I would love to deploy this in our environment but need some more control over the app.

When I get to the tab section I can see the text “We’ll set up your WSJ Reader……..” but no tabs show up and then I get an error message “No catalog account found”

Any suggestions on what to do next?

Thanks!

I am also getting this error when I initially set up and try to set up tabs. Whats the deal?

Anyone encounter this one? "Error Loading An Article Record : null address? Upon loading the App. The OK button below does nothing. Check that...after numerous times hitting the OK button, the app loads properly
