No iPhone X support 2/5
By a guy who reviews stuff
This app has improved dramatically since my last review. Ads no longer seem as prevalent and they do not move to obscure the text anymore.
However, the lack of iPhone X support is glaring, especially seeing as how most other apps on my phone managed to update to fit the resolution almost immediately. I will give this app 5 stars when iPhone X support is added.
Why is this not optimized for iPhone X? 2/5
It’s impossibly tiny on the newest iPhone. Update your app and keep up with your competition. Most other newspapers have adapted and they look great. Not NYT.
Love it! 4/5
I love the New York Times. Such great quality journalism. The way information is presented is innovative as well, with some great interactive features. The app works well too. My only complaint is that the app has been taking up a huge amount of storage on my iPhone. Over 1 GB.
Ads cut off music 2/5
If an ad shuts off my music I close the app. This app allows ads to shut off my music. Please resolve and the app will be more useful for consuming the news as opposed to forcing me to hear my fellow commuters on the NYC subway.
Great content, no iPhone X support 3/5
Great content, no iPhone X support
Your ads are stopping music playback 1/5
I like the app and its stream like content which makes it easy to view information on the go. However, your ads constantly stop music playback and it’s unbearable. This must be fixed. I’m a paying subscriber why do these ads exist??
unexpected quit 2/5
don't know what happened. cannot open it recently.
Show more stories 2/5
How do I see all the great stories you write? I often use Google News since they surface NYT articles I’m interested in. Then I go back to NYT app and search for the article. That’s crazy. Show all the articles in a section.
Also I find I’m often clicking on ads when I was really trying to scroll down. I guess that’s good for you since you earn money (and deserve to), but it’s annoying as a user.
Good news, bad app 1/5
Glitchy. Every time I open the app it takes me to an article I looked at days ago. If it’s a link the app crashes every time.
Great App! 4/5
Works great, looks great. Just needs iPhone X support!
Problem? Customer Service is Out! 1/5
The problem: I’m unable to log in on my iPad even though I’m logged in on my iPhone. I’ve tried resetting my password multiple times but never get a response. I contacted customer service and received an automated reply that I would be contacted soon. It’s been 2 weeks and still no response. Meanwhile my iPad app counts down the number of “free” stories (which I paid for) I have left this month. The Times should do a story on their own incompetence.
Buggy and Bias 1/5
The app started to play a video even when after I exited page for a few minutes. That created an awkward situation in a public place when my phone suddenly started yelling(because of the video) and everyone looked at me.
And the most important thing is that the New York Times is ridiculously bias. Though I support the same thing that NYT supports, but it doesn’t mean it’s ok for a media to be bias.
And it’s been few weeks since iPhone X has been announced. All other apps have been adapted. But NYT is one of the apps that aren’t.
Most Popular 1/5
By BMC 2015
The most popular articles feature has been stripped down. Instead of having 20 or so of the most emailed and read articles populated (legacy behavior), this feature has been changed to show five articles. Meanwhile, the online version of the NYTimes continues to have a robust feature set. It feels like the product team is randomly experimenting with core functionality with little direction or purpose.
Annoying ads 1/5
Please disable auto play of video ads. It is enough to have ads in the first place even with a paying subscription, but even more annoying that when I am reading the newspaper in the morning I get a loud auto playing advertisement for cologne when I scroll to a new section.
Auto play video ads are awful 1/5
I’m a paying subscriber please stop overloading the app with ads — particularly the auto play videos that go full screen right when i open the app.
Nice to be heard 4/5
Thank you for finally returning the section “recently reviewed”!! Bravo! Now can you do anything those repeating ads?? Why isn’t there an “ad free” version available for subscribers, especially for someone like me who pays alot per month for 7 days/week home delivery/full access?
A step in the wrong direction 1/5
While the previous version was good, not great, this is a big step backward. In addition to the confusing layout, the unavailability of pictures when reading offline truly diminishes the experience, as does the “cap” on the number of sections that are automatically updated.
We’re big kids, let us decide how much we want to download to determine our own reading experience.
I can’t cancel my subscription 1/5
App Store, nor NYT lets me cancel my subscription.
Really not cool
No iPhone X support 1/5
The phone has been out for weeks now and the simulator out for months before that. How in the world have they still not updated the app to support the iPhone X?
Disappointed to see no iPhone X support 1/5
Embarrassing to see you don’t have support yet, weeks after the phone’s launch. I expected better from you guys.
National enquirer gives more accurate news
A Nearly Perfect App 4/5
I've always loved The NY Times digital. Their website has always been miles ahead of everyone else and this app is no exception. My only complaint is I wish - as a paid subscriber - they would remove the advertisements. Otherwise, this is quite an impressive achievement.
Also, they need to update for iPhone X!!!
Layered, thoughtful 2/5
Please put back the option to not have the app refresh on opening!! And update for iPhone X already! Geesh
Worst news app 1/5
The worst news app from the biggest name in news. The team recently started posting click-bait style links. “I’ve never clicked on one of the links because...” I expect more from The New York Times. The paper, with all of its resources, has also been slow to update the app for iPhone X. If they can’t get the content right, asking for the content to fit the format must be too much.
Cannot read on Twitter 2/5
I have a digital subscription. When in Twitter & click on a new article in my feed, it tells me I’ve reached my limit of free articles for the month, so I scroll down and log in. Then instead of seeing the article on Twitter, there’s other content. Using the menu and links, I cannot find the article from the Twitter feed anywhere. If I go back to Twitter, I hit the paywall again. If I go to the app, I can’t find the article. What am I paying for? On iOS 7 with latest updates. Very frustrating!
Blocks of ads 1/5
The app was fine until about 6 weeks ago. Now there are large blocks of ads throughout every article. The articles have become hard to read, annoying and distracting because of this. This is for paying subscribers for hat are not paying for ads! The Times response is that their IT team is "working on it". Almost two months in. Not fast enough.
Most Popular Section Gutted 2/5
The “Most Popular” section used to contain many different articles to read from around the NYT. Now I cannot seem to get more than 5 articles. This section was my favorite part of the app and it is really disappointing to see it become so much less useful.
iPhone X support 3/5
I use the app all the time and I cannot wait for iPhone X support for the app. So please do update the app.
Poor App 1/5
WSJ, FT, and Wash Post apps all much better. I love NYT newspaper. Hopefully, they can get their act together to provide a legitimate app for today. They have to if they’re going to survive.
Where’s iPhone X version? 2/5
I can’t figure out why so slow on optimizing for iPhone X screen. It literally makes me not want to open the app. I’m reading WSJ and others more frequently now. Even USA Today has an iPhone X optimized app. Cmon NYT developers. Get with it.
Previous Version was better 1/5
The NYT is still the best source of news, I have nothing but good things to say about the content. But the new App has no respect for the content.
The latest version of the appears to have been upgraded to allow for more advertising which is inserted multiple times into each article. Very annoying. I get it, you need to make money but compromising the content is not the way to go, that is your asset!
Typography is weak, headlines are not bold enough, hard to scan articles. One reason I have a paid digital subscription was the App was so good! Everyone is going the Microsoft way- updates that make the product worse.
NYT should have realized this was a missed opportunity to capture younger readers - big miss.
Now Sluggish and Slow 2/5
This app used to work great. One tap and it’d open instantly and it was easy to pop back to the front page.
Now when you try to open it it just hangs on the T forever. Getting back to the main page is complicated and video ads keep popping up and auto playing without your consent.
It went from great to annoying.
Needs updating badly. 2/5
Hey NYT, how about a new app with iPhone X updates. I’m getting tired of reading the BBC app.
iPhone X support? 4/5
By Just looking...
Excellent app but falling behind given the lack of iPhone X support/optimization.
Pop up video adds a subscription breaker 1/5
The New York Times app has a bug where video ads pop up as you’re scrolling through an article, and keep popping up whenever you close them! They crash the app, and they always crash any news program that I have running in the background. I have a brand new iPhone 8 + and all my software is up-to-date. When I contacted the times they stated they were aware of the situation but there is “currently no estimated time of resolution”.
Unacceptable if they want to stay in business and sell their product.
iPhone X support 1/5
Please add iPhone X support
Letterboxing needs fixing 2/5
Where's the iPhone X support? The amount of wasted space is nuts and increases the amount of scrolling needed vastly.
The Guardian is doing it right; you aren't.
Stale and Outdated App 1/5
There hasn’t been meaningful improvement in this app in at least 5 years. And now they are weeks behind on the iphone x update.
Buggy. Bring the old app back! 1/5
Fails to load time after time. Crashes and locks up. Ads are intrusive and advert links often don't even work. Horrific and getting worse. Pull this app, bring the old one back until this is fixed.
Long live the paper. Every day I am reminded how much faster and efficient it is to scan the pages on the paper and get my news and information so much faster from the paper paper.
Maybe someday the iPad will offer the same experience- but it's not going to be on the current NY Times app.
Seamlessly combining native content with web, this is a quick and efficient way to catch up. Pushing the summary content to the top is genius.
Docking one star for missing iPhone X support. Otherwise, it’s perfect
While the new article view looks great (after getting used to it), they way articles are being listed now is so confusing, one can have a really hard time identifying today's articles vs yesterday's, as in, why do I get about 3 artilces with headline and short description, and THEN, I get the latest?
No iPhone X support 1/5
iPhone X just came out but we pay for nytimes and there is no iPhone X support total nonsense for a paid app
A Step Backwards 2/5
I've been a reader of The NYTimes for 20 years--first the print edition and then the digital edition--but this latest app is awful. Compared to the previous app (which really was a fair rendering of the printed paper), this new app is far less stable (it crashes at least once or twice every time I try to open it); it's far slower (probably two to three times longer to load a simple article); and it appears to contain far fewer stories from the print issue. All this and a new format that is neither more readable nor easier to navigate. I just don't understand why. I miss the old app. This is neither progress nor improvement, and is a terrible disservice to a fine paper at a time when we need good journalism more than ever.
I like reading your articles but I am not happy that you have to limit free reading. Nearly all other news apps are free with unlimited reading. Some of them ask for donations and I don’t mind donating but as of now I am afraid of what is going to happen with the economy because of 45. So i have decided to uninstall this app for now. So long.....
You can clear the cache now, hooray!
Good content, bad app 1/5
1. This app feels less and less like a newspaper with each iteration. It has more of a feel of scrolling down a blog with popular opinion articles highlighted.
2. Once you find the actual news articles, they’re still top notch as always.
3. It is absolutely ridiculous that this still has not been updated for the iPhone X.
Stop it with the video ads 3/5
I love this app, and have been a big fan since NYT Now. It convinced me to pay for a subscription. But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remove the auto playing video ads. That is just obnoxious while I’m trying to read your articles. And bonus points if you make it open to the last article on a cold start - sometimes I swap apps and come back to find myself back on the homepage.
What happened?? 2/5
My app won't link to articles in "Top Stories" section, though I can access articles from other categories. This just since last "update."
By Patrick Habegger
I opened an app on my Ipad that said NYT on the icon. The app that opened appeared different than what I am use too. The difference being a substantial amount of more ads and less than ideal UI. Being a subscriber to NYT, I was enraged by what I perceived to be a new format. After deleting the app that I had opened I searched NYT in the app store and left a nasty 1 star review. I then went to open my other news apps and found a second NYT app icon. Confused I opened it to find the app I was expecting. Im not sure if I somehow downloaded some NYT scamming app by accident or if the second app is NYT separate version to fit a different audience. What I do know is that there is a good version out there, so don't be like me if you open an app full of disappointment and post a poor review look for the good version.
Wish I could go back 1/5
I can probably get used to the layout. But it crashes frequently and loads more slowly. And some articles have an ad banner the width of the page every few paragraphs. I'm already paying for a subscription. Why do I need to be barraged with these annoying ads in the middle of what I'm reading!!! I'm on the verge of canceling.
