New York—The Wall Street Journal has introduced a new universal app for both the iPad and iPhone, replacing separate apps for each. The Journal's universal app features several upgrades, including more frequent updates and faster download speed for daily editions. The app also includes access to The Wall Street Journal Asia and The Wall Street Journal Europe. “The development of this app—and, in general, increasing the efficiency and consistency across our products to enhance user experience—is a crucial step in the direction for new products in our pipeline,” Alisa Bowen, chief product officer of Dow Jones & Co., which publishes the Journal, said in a news release. The free app is available to download in the iTunes store.
