Free iPhone app provides free access to Wall Street Journal content. It’s a very nice app — easy to browse top stories, and it includes the ability to save a story on the iPhone for offline access. One of several nice little touches I’ve noticed so far is that if you quit the app while reading a story, when you re-launch it, it goes back to that story rather than putting you back at the main screen.
Biggest ding against the app: Article text is set in Arial rather than Helvetica.
