So I’ll be keeping my WSJ subscription and passing on News+ despite what I said yesterday.
I'm really irritated that Apple tried to pull this sleight of hand trickery, acting like the full subscription was available except the archives. Not true, a deep dive will show WSJ is withholding a lot of data and analysis.
One criticism I have with the app so far is its lack of intuitive integration with Apple News. It feels like News+ is just kinda jammed in as an extra tab. It doesn't really have any interactivity with the regular News app ... meaning the curated content in News isn't populated with articles from any of the 300 magazines I now have access to. And maybe that will change over time as I use it. I'll tell you, though, it doesn't really feel like that will be the case. News+ just kind of exists adjacent to News, which is disappointing because Apple News is otherwise fairly dynamic.
