New app doesn't save articles 1/5
Doesn't actually download any articles? You realize people, you know, try to read this on the subway into work? Say like, to your office? Please don't make me start giving money to WaPo.
Removing nyt from my ipad 1/5
I cannot believe paying readers should have to deal with so many ads! It is ridiculous and very disappointing. Will read my subscription on pc using adblocker. Shame on nyt for treating readers so cynically.
Terrible app- not usable 1/5
The new NYT app crashes repeatedly, to the point where it is unusable. For the few seconds it does run, it's very slow and has a long startup time. Why can't NYT build or buy decent software?
BIG FAIL 1/5
This app is horrible and I don't see the old app available to install. It takes a long time to open - when it actually opens. Need to constantly delete and reinstall app
Calling tomorrow to cancel subscription!
Unstable on older iPads 1/5
I have a three year old iPad and the app instantly crashes and freezes. The older app worked well and I regret upgrading. The new app is unusable and I have to read content from a web browser.
I give up 1/5
I find the new app utterly unusable. Aside from the technical difficulties - crashing, freezing, etc., - it is "NYT Lite" - seemingly produced for juveniles. The content is incomplete (I couldn't find a specific reticle and the help desk told me that the app does not contain the full paper), the presentation feels like reading a picture book and is is maddeningly buggy. Forget it. I will read on the website.
Hate this app 1/5
By Elliot the cat lover
Can't get this app to load. When it does, it shuts down unexpectedly . Give me back the old app!
Went from ok to terrible 1/5
The new version is a mess that crashes routinely and tries to use the remaining 1gb of available memory i have. Now I routinely get out off memory messages and the app locks up continually. Even cleaning the cache is a joke.
Please bring back the previous version!
Won't open 1/5
The major update to the new version worked for about two weeks and now won't open on my (admittedly older but still perfectly good) iPad 2. I get the "T" logo and then it crashes every time. I already deleted the old app. Now what? I'm a paid subscriber, so I guess I have to read the paper in a browser.
Trouble opening app 1/5
I have not been able to open the app since the September 22 update.
Update constantly crashes on older devices 1/5
The latest release claims to run on iOS 9.0, but clearly it was not tested on older versions of iOS. It crashes on open constantly on my iPad. Now I can't get the old version of the app back.
If you force me to upgrade my iPad, I won't have any money left for my NYT subscription.
What has happened? Should I suspend my subscription? 1/5
I don't understand what happened. My IPad used to get NYT simply and quick. Now it takes forever to download and crashes a few times en route. Washington Post has a digital edition which loads instantaneously. Am I mistaken -- didn't my NYT subscription have a similar digital (quick loading) edition? If so, can I get it back?
No longer updates content. Last update is from yesterday.
You'd think the NYT would be the best 1/5
The previous app was practically flawless, but the new app only open rarely; and when it does it locks up or crashes.
The app works fine on my wife's newer iPad, but I can,t always use her IPAd, and I'm not going to buy a new computer just to read the Times. I subscribe to the print edition but am thinking about dropping it since I depend on the mobil to get my news.
Still Useless 1/5
As others have pointed out I too would like to say that I pay to read the NY Times (I've subscribed for decades) and now I am unable to read it on my preferred device. I now have to read the paper on my laptop or my phone. Unbelievable and unacceptable.
*Even with upgrade it's slow and crashes. I"m deleting app from my iPad. This is a major, major disappointment. It wasn't broken. Why did you ruin this?!?!?!
**When* it opens it's painfully slow so I now read the NYTimes on my laptop. The very limited amount I've seen of the new design looks nice though.
The old nytimes app was the best newspaper app of them all.
The new one isn't even functional. Stops working after a single use. Will not load again after that: just crashes. Cannot read without deleting and redownloading the app on my iOS 9 iPad.
Please fix or I will move my reading and my subscription $ to the Washington Post.

Says it all.
The new app is even worse than the old app 1/5
This new NYT app crashes more often than it opens. Terrible. Get back to the drawing board. Or crib from the WSJ, WPOST and FT.com. Each of those apps work like a charm.
New version buggy and crashes 1/5
Downloaded the new version as recommended by NYT, it crashes or fails to load on iPad. Bring back the old version that worked please.
Bad iteration 1/5
Won't open, won't load on iPad 3 retina display. Very troubling. Please fix or make old app available again.
Please return to a more intelligent and robust format. This latest version is all fluff and very user unfriendly. I see you've made more room for ads at the expense of a layout that focuses on content. I'll give you a month and if no change then I'll be moving my subscription elsewhere-think Guardian folks.
Just not good 1/5
New app doesn't work properly - links on main page won't work - and is missing many of the features of the old app, including sport-specific pages (can I find the NFL schedule for tomorrow? No). I agree with other reviewers, this is dumbed down and a major fail.
Crashes and won't open 1/5
I've got an iPad mini. App crashes and won't open at all. Pleas fix.
Too many ads 1/5
Ads across page interrupting reading are intolerable!
Old people down voting app? 5/5
The app works perfectly fine, the ui is modern and looks good and the content is the same despite whether or not you think their journalism has gone down hill due to the way the app is organized. Only issue I have is that the nytimes limits which articles can have user comments.
I might give it two stars if I could actually open it and check it out. Granted, I've got an older iPad, but with up-to-date software. I don't have this problem with WSJ or Wapo apps.
By DRG 0001
App won't open more than once on my iPad 3. Forced to delete the app and re-install each time I want to use it.
A poor upgrade 2/5
I loved the old NY Times app, as it was a great way to digitally experience the paper. I was quite excited when the new app arrived, loving the graphics and design, so unfortunately I deleted the old app shortly after installing the new one. Now, a few weeks later, I find the new version to be unstable and a network and resource hog. Loading pages takes forever, crashes are getting more frequent, and overall, the experience in quite frustrating. It's great to improve the UI to make a better experience, but if the app is no longer stable, your app developers have really missed the mark.
Now to see if I can read the paper in my browser instead (argh!)
App no good for older iPads 1/5
App does not work well on my older iPad. Old one worked perfectly. Now Ithe app won't open properly and if it finally does, it's very clunky. I have been reading NYT for years. Can't imagine my mornings without it. Please bring back the old app . Can't imagine my life without waking up to your superior journalists and opinion . OMG what to do. Yikes. . .
Prefer the old website and search function is terrible 2/5
Thank you for all your reporting BUT your technology is less than good. I used to prefer to read the NYT on my iPad to paper, but the new version is not helpful. It is not laid out well, it's hard to find things, please revise again.
The search function is terrible - it has been bad for a long time. Please try testing it yourselves - it doesn't find anything relevant to the search terms, even when I put in the exact words in a headline!
Awful new app 1/5
Don't delete your old NYT app for this one, it's awful and the pages take years to load. Amazed at such incompetence by the company.
Crashes before opening. 1/5
This app used to work fine, but the recent update is unusable. It always crashes before it opens.
constantly crashes 1/5
This app does not open on older iOS operating systems. I am paying a subscription, and cannot use. Frustrating and ridiculous.
I HATE THIS 1/5
If this review tool didn't force me to give this app a star, I would be giving it NO STARS, folks. I pay for a digital subscription to NYT. I love the Times and read as much of their coverage as I can every day. Or at least I used to. The new app simply won't run on my 2nd-generation iPad. It won't even launch! I'll cancel my subscription before I'll shell out an obscene amount of money for a new iPad. Hey NYT, do your digital subscriptions support the Kindle?
Crash, crash & more crashes 1/5
Buggy: stalls and crashes. 1/5
Title says it all.
The new version has taken a step backward. Didn't think that was possible! Faster? Not a chance! Much slower than the previous version. Ads are now bigger and in your face every 20 lines....same ad and no way to minimize them. The subscription should now be free and the web designer fired!
After using this for a week it's worse than I first thought...hard to believe! Repetitive ads in the middle of an article combined with the dreaded animated ads force you to close the article and move on. You can no longer print, etc. Fortunately I didn't delete the old app and it still works.
Update: After using this for several weeks I have found everything about this to be even worse than originally thought. The same irrelevant ad over and over again one article. Ads are HUGE!! The app seems to get more sluggish every time I use it. Hopefully the design team has been fired by now!
I wish there was a "0" star option!
New iPad app doesn't work 1/5
New iPad app is a loser! It won't load so we can't read it.
An improvement? The app crashes every time I open it.
Crashes on iPad v 9.3.5 1/5
The fixes for iOS 11 seem to have broken the app for older versions.
Not the best for iPhone SE size 4/5
By SG NY
Thanks for bringing back the comment ratings. A little too much white space and lack of hierarchy, but an improvement over the last change nevertheless. On smaller phones, you can only see one title at a time and there is a lot of scrolling to do, with headlines just lined up without clear logic.
App broken 1/5
After Sept 21 update, app won't open properly. It opens then after a few seconds, it minimizes and won't stay open after that.
Version 6.1 crashes after several seconds of displaying a blank screen 1/5
I'm running IOS 9.5.3, current for my iPad.
App is slow, crashes - fix it.
New app stinks 1/5
New app worked for a few days, then started crashing, now will not load at all. Old app still works fine. Certainly did not see any of the promised improvements. Please make sure this is fixed before you get rid of old app
Great Content, Atrocious Implementation 1/5
By ghayr mufid
Like many here, I love nytimes content. But this iteration of the app is so clunky and and scrolling is painfully slow, particularly after the update for iOS 11. It needs fixing, and as a paying customer, I expect that to happen soon.
Love the paper hate the app 2/5
I've read the times my entire adult life. I love the articles. But the app and its constant barrage of video ads is horrible and pushing me to cancel my subscription.
New version of app is terrible 1/5
It doesn't work for me at all. Very disappointing. Times should be embarrassed.
Great news source , but not the most updated interface 3/5
By Rony. Ang
In my personal opinion , NY Times is the most reliable and versatile news/ arts/ lifestyle news source . But compare to post or other modern news apps the times interface is still an oldie .
Even times cooking app have much better user interface . Other than that great app .
Hot phone, drains battery while in app! 2/5
I find myself limiting my use of the app because it makes my iPhone run hot, and also drains my battery much more quickly than while using other apps. It’s not a coincidence; I’ve tested this theory - it’s definitely the NYT app that’s causing this issue. Please fix this - as a paid subscriber I should be able to read the news without having to bring my phone charger along everywhere I go...
