The Wall Street Journal Free iPhone Application Now Available

Posted Apr 16, 2009

The Wall Street Journal has jumped on the iPhone bandwagon.  Interestingly, the iPhone application is free despite the fact that they charge for their publication on the web and on the Kindle.  Last year The Wall Street Journal created a free BlackBerry application so it was expected that they made one for the iPhone too.  Even though the application is free, users will be glaring at massive advertisements at the bottom of the screen.  Notice the Oracle logo that is prominently placed at the bottom of the screen?

Other major publications that have built an application for the mobile device includes Bloomberg, CNN, and The New York Times.  None of these charge to use the application so The Wall Street Journal had to remain competitive too.

The videos and streaming radio that is available through The Wall Street Journal application connects to the built-in YouTube application on the iPhone.
