  • Solid content , weak tech

    By Troutbum52
    NYT always keeps you informed and entertained. For a top rate journalistic source one would hope for equal tech savvy. That’s not been my experience .
  • User unfriendly app

    By mark and bruce
    I want to read the Times in Exactly the same way I read the print version. For ex, when I want to read the Sun. Book Review section, I do not want to have to scroll through pre-selected articles and/or authors. I want to read it as if I were holding the print copy and I will make my own selections of what to read. G.A G.
  • Crosswords

    The latest app update seems not able to launch the daily crosswords
  • Good Information, Problematic App

    By SteveB179
    The content is outstanding. It's the New York Times. The App is weak. Articles are slow to load and sometimes never load. Just now while reading the article on Mr Cotton, the app failed returning to the home screen. At that point it is necessary to restart. Frustrating and time consuming.
  • VERY SLOW LOAD AND REFRESH. Commenting broken. Section interface poor. Intrusive ads!

    By AstroPaul
    Great newspaper; very weak app! August 12, 2018 OVERVIEW — DOWN ANOTHER STAR Message to the Developers: A whole bunch of problems have existed for more than a year. It's time to fix the app! MAJOR PROBLEM WITH REFRESH The app loads stories or refreshes VERY, VERY SLOWLY. In other news apps —e.g., the Washington Post and The Guardian — loading or refreshing of articles and columns happens immediately. For the New York Times, however, I can count the many seconds it takes! The other morning and now this morning, August 12, 2018, it took 30 seconds to load an article and a column! When nothin happened, I even tapped the article *four* times without any indication from the app that anything was going on. In contrast, the major news apps go *immediately* to the articles and columns. ENTERING OF COMMENTS BROKEN! Repeatedly, when editing or typing in a comment, the app jumps the cursor to the end of the comment! So, you started adding a sentence in the middle, or correcting it, and suddenly discover that it's appended the text or corrections to the end of the *entire* comment, not where you were! This is the only app that behaves like this! So, it's not a matter of an inadvertent or stray finger of thumb tap moving the cursor. In fact, to stop the behavior, one has to copy the text, leave comments, and return. That works for a bit until it starts happening again. STILL DOESN'T RETURN TO WHERE ONE LEFT OFF Whenever a user returns to the app, it doesn't remember where you last were. Instead, it scrolls back to the top of the page! We'd like to pick up where we left off. In other words, if we had been 2/3 down the list of stories, it should come back to that place! It's been many months with that problem, too, and you still haven't fixed it! MINI-CROSSWORD PROBLEMS REMAIN! You still haven't updated the crossword display problems! The clues remain rendered on the right in a tiny font — cannot read them easily. The puzzle itself, though, has HUGE SQUARES! It's all ridiculous looking. The developers should be embarrassed. The clues are OK sized above the keyboard. Bring back the original version! Also, because the newspapers sections now scroll, one right after another, the mini-crossword is no longer at the bottom of the screen, where one could easily slide to! There should be a one-tap option to get to it. INTRUSIVE ADS A big problem remains the intrusive ads— even for PAYING subscribers. The articles are littered with ads; more than ever; and are large. One often thinks the story has ended and may not realize that it continues below the "fold". Those of us who subscribe should NOT have to face ads--other newspapers (e.g., The Guardian) do NOT hit you with ads. BACKGROUND POWER ISSUE Why does your app use *background* battery power -- even when Background App Refresh is turned off?! Why?! Please fix that! SECTION REARRANGING IS A MESS There's no indication that one can drag and drop sections in the pull down list. There's no way of hiding or deleting sections from that list — or, adding other sections, e.g., particular blogs and columnists! In fact, there used to be a set of blogs and columns at the bottom of the list — that's now gone entirely! The drag-and-drop interface doesn't work properly, either! If you TRY to drag a section up to the top, it stalls and then jumps. The old system of Edit, drag-and-drop, move, add, or hide sections, including blogs, worked well. WHAT'S REALLY NEEDED IS A TABBED INTERFACE The pull-down menu interface, however, is a weak one. A tab bar is the fastest way of moving among sections. It should be an option. The sections that one sets up should appear in a tab bar at the top of the screen, for instant one-tap access. Take a look at the Washington Post app to learn how to do this right. MISSING LINK FOR SUPPORT Also, please provide a link to support here on iTunes! Your link goes to your web page promoting the app, but we already have it! We want to provide feedback to you and get support! EARLIER REVIEWS FOLLOW Please fix the problems that remain! ——————————- February 15, 2018 Tried this again and most of the problems are still here! Install the new version and it discards ALL of your carefully organized sections and settings. It replaces your classic iPhone version, too! That’s bad design and bad form. The rotating, moving ads remain a major irritation. They are a visual distraction — who clicks on them, anyway, except inadvertently?! Plus, we've bought a subscription, so we shouldn't have to see them. Turn OFF the intrusive ads! The shift to photos and skeuomorphic newspaper layout is still a bad one. Too busy and takes up too much room. We should have the option to use the iPhone app or layout — one column of stories and headlines, not side-by-side. Another issue: the sections keep scrolling one after another, without end. The older design made more sense and was more usable — the only stories shown for a section are for that section and it comes to an end. Here, too, give us an option to return to the old, better way of doing things! ---------------------------------------------- August 6, 2017 The latest update REPLACED the excellent NY Times *iPhone* version! That's not cricket! That version was superb on the iPad (clean look in 2x mode). It presented the articles in each section in a consistent, vertical headline list, making it easy to scroll through and locate ones of interest. The section list also has several problems, including relegating blogs to the back of the line! (See above explanations.) July 26, 2017 The new version REMOVES your preferred section order! Knocking out users' laboriously arranged sections is BAD programming! (Other issues now pasted above. Yes, it's been that long the problems have been around!)
  • An app on a downward spiral

    By bs11111113333
    Good luck in trying to read many stories and basically the entire “Opinion” section if you’re on a plane. Congratulations on making the app more unfriendly to travelers!
  • Great content, decent app

    By Duncan Callahan
    Ads are often in the way or in too many places. Maybe consider offering a premium rate to eliminate all ads? Beauty of the app not in line with modern standards. Great content though...
  • Why track my acceleration?

    By ajm2000000
    The app is great, but I don’t understand why it requires access to my phone’s accelerometer. The Nevada advertisement shown to me clearly has access to it in order to change the view as I turn my phone. If you want to be creepy like Facebook then keep doing it. Or you could protect my privacy and try to earn back my trust.
  • More to hate

    By AllCarsEatGas
    By more I mean all those extra northwest-angled arrows appended to so many items. Some articles are available off-line, yet increasingly so many are not. No internet access at the moment? Too bad, you’ll have to wait. Why, pray tell, and who makes the decision on how an article is made available. At first this was a rare, occasional thing; right now it seems as if most of the Opinion section falls under the no-internet-no-reading “feature.” What gives? (I just counted, only five Opinion articles without the little arrow, were I on an airplane or otherwise without a connection those arrowed-items would be unavailable. Ridiculous!)
  • Big slow app

    By Eilmydhoo
    Love the Times of course but I don’t like how much space it takes up on my phone and how long it takes to load articles compared to other news apps. I open it first every morning, but then I end up switching to another app while I’m waiting for it to load.
