  • Auto play ads on silent mode

    By JGNickerson
    I have been a long-time subscriber to NYT and I love their content. However, I am considering cancelling my subscription because of the auto-play ads on this app. When my phone is on silent, the ads are still able to play through my phone speakers. I can’t listen to music while reading either because the ads pause my music whenever they appear in articles, and they appear very frequently. I understand that ads are a requirement, but do they have to be so obtrusive? This is unacceptable for a subscription service like this.
  • Stories do not load

    By astropolitan
    I love reading NYT—when this app lets me. Whenever I click on a push notification for a headline, it takes AGES to load and sometimes it never loads. Most of the time I end up just quitting. I want this app for quick breaking news updates, but it’s not accomplishing that at all.
  • Worst app for offline reading - FT (A+) or WSJ (A-) much much better

    By rkay603
    It’s a nightmare to download, plus you never know if it has finished downloading so you are always guessing. This is literally the first App review I have ever written which should tell you all. It is embarrassing for The NY Times to have such an awful App for offline reading. Please check for yourself and fix it!
  • Its the whole NY Times

    By Matt554367
    Thanks for adding the today’s paper page to the app! That view is what it took to get me to finally use the app full-time, rather than using that today’s paper view of the mobile website. I like the fact that I can scroll through that page and know that I’ve not missed anything.
  • IOS 12 issues

    By GinaW115
    Since updating I’ve had nothing but trouble with this app on my iPad mini. Even 12.1 didn’t solve any problems. Not a good thing when paying for content and not getting it.
  • High-quality news, low-quality app

    By Bornromantic
    This review is not about the articles published by The NY Times, it’s about problems with the iPhone app. This is the ONLY app on my phone that regularly freezes. The screen stops scrolling while I'm trying to read an article at least once a day. Nothing to do but wait it out. I’m surprised these problems haven’t been fixed yet.
  • Do Not Download the Update!

    By Anonmom
    Update caused app to stop working - Deleted and reinstalled twice, and still no luck. Just flat out doesn’t work. Dead.
  • Advertising crashes app

    By johninspanish
    Developers need to fix the way the app loads advertising. Video banners constantly crash the app.
  • Why is it so hard to cancel a subscription??

    By 3M TAE
    News app is good, but if you want to cancel, they make you either chat online or call someone to do so. It took 10 minutes for their agent to allow me to cancel my subscription after me asking 4 times to do so. They keep pushing other offers to you.
  • “Never auto play video” setting doesn’t work

    By Dmhak
    The ‘never auto play video’ setting doesn't work. It’s terribly distracting and frustrating to read an article with a video auto playing on the screen, and every time you scroll a page, yet another auto played video shows. I get that you need ads, but I also pay you a subscription fee with the expectation of a certain experience - not to be overly distracted from the article. Please have your developers fix this setting or remove it. If you can’t make it work, don’t offer it. NY Times app is a bad experience match to the expectations because of this one issue. Fix it and I’d give you 5 stars.
