Limit to Free Reads?? 1/5
I understand that NYT needs to pay the bills,but throttling unpaid users? Come on. I just can’t afford it, but love the content.
Fake news 1/5
THIS IS FAKE NEWS
1) Remember/sync section order so I don’t have to repeat on iPad vs iPhone
2) Improve load times / fix menu animations which are laggy/buggy
3) Hide completes articles (or make it an option) - I often don’t get to most of the content bc it’s buried
4) The link to share an article (ie copy URL) is busted - it doesn’t put a space bw the title and the URL
5) Also the Spotify app links don’t work from the music reviews! Fix them, they’re a nice feature.
6) Maybe longer term create an in-app way to share with other subscribers so we don’t have to leave the app?
Greedy pricing, leads to layoffs 1/5
Make all the news one price not double for ipad ..... I don't care about photos or video it's the same news ???? Now you offer what I’ve been saying for 5years now, people don’t want to pay different prices dempending on device brand or size . You guys are such idiots
Love it! 5/5
I love the New York Times. Such great, quality journalism. The way information is presented is innovative as well, with some sleek interactive features. The app works well for me... no bugs.
My mother taught me if I NOTHING nice to say don't say anything. So my review is:
Update a couple months later: Same
Thanks for iPhone X update 5/5
Thanks for iPhone X update
Cleaned up well for iPhone X 5/5
Your recent update supporting the iPhone X and “adding polish” has helped a LOT as far as getting rid of the very clunky layout previously there. I’m still not a fan of the less dense layout overall that was introduced several months ago, but this version is much more pleasurable to use. Thanks!
Made the mistake of upgrading. What worked fine before now freezes and crashes every time takes five minutes or so to open each day. Not having this problem with any other apps.
FIX THE BUG. I want to read NYT again without frustration.
You listened! 5/5
Thank you for adding iPhone X support, and disabling the auto playing adds, and even returning to the article I was last reading. You listened and made those changes, so thank you.
It’s just average 3/5
I guess I expect a little more from the New York Times. The journalism is top notch as always but the app has room for improvement. My major complaint is that there isn’t a sync between the website and the apps. I can read an article with the iPhone app and then later when I visit their website, the same article is listed as one of the ten ‘recommended for you’ articles. If only one of the ten was previously read, it wouldn’t be a major ordeal to remove it. But usually the number is closer to five and sometimes even ten. Clicking that many article titles and scrolling down and then going back to the front page can become very time consuming.
My moneys worth and much more 5/5
By Chuck 77
The latest version is better than ever, and the Times is better than ever. An absolute pleasure!
I have to think hard about every dollar I spend, and I had to think hard about springing for this app. On the other hand I put a high value on accurate, well researched, beautifully written journalism, it's a dying breed. Almost extinct!
To me, the Times in any form stands almost alone on every count. So I decided to look at my subscription as an investment, because without the times I would be a lot poorer. I don't just mean intellectually poorer. I mean literally dollars and cents poorer. Ignorance got us into a deep financial hole in 2008, and losing one of the last bastions of good, honest reporting is something I don't think we can afford. So I went whole–hog. The complete digital subscription.
Years have passed, so what do I think? I think I got more than my moneys worth, much more! The digital times just keeps getting richer, more creative, more informative, and just plain more of a joy to read!
Great (except for v 6.3) 3/5
This version has been freezing up on me with this update. It gets stuck in one article and I’m unable to go back, even after closing the app entirely. The only way I’ve gotten it to resolve is to completely restart my phone. This is not normal.
Downloaded the app and it completely hacked my phone. My phone became unresponsive and had to be shut down. Very disappointed!!
Wow no integrity 1/5
Don't know what the editors are thinking with the new far right opinion bent. Covering all sides does not mean spouting racist hate filled nonsense. Seriously not like your going to gain crazy right readers your only alienating your loyal readers. I give it 5 years until bankruptcy.
Good content 5/5
Thank you for the iPhone X update - I’m updating my review :)
Great journalism, The Times keeping in real and politicians honest.
Great on iPhone X 5/5
I've been using this app for the past 5 years and it has improved significantly over that time. Great notifications to keep you informed on important matters. Works great on the iPhone X
Wish I hadn't updated 2/5
New version uses 3X the memory! For what? All the unnecessary photos? Want the previous version back.
Update broke the app 1/5
The new update is stuck and restarting it doesn’t help. Thanks, NYT.
iPhone X update 5/5
Thanks for the iPhone X update. This was the last app I use for news to integrate the new design. I don’t have any problems using the app, unlike some people that use it. Good luck and thanks!
Looks good on iPhone X! 5/5
By John & Melissa
Let’s be honest - the Times is the finest form of journalism in this country. I’m glad to have it on my phone and this latest update makes it look great on my iPhone X. The styling is consistent with NYT elsewhere, the familiar coherence of content and formatting that makes the NYT so wonderful. By the way, it’s worth noting that at a time when news is under attack, the NYT has been doubling down on its original values and expanding them in the digital world. I couldn’t be more grateful.
iPhone X support - yay! 5/5
Great iPhone X update!!!
Continues downward 1/5
I wish the app matched the content but it doesn't. On the web you can click on an icon to see what the daily paper looks like, what the headlines are, what the top items are. In this app you open it to Your Briefing. This has the effect of hiding the top stories, reducing them to an anonymous sameness. This app is useless.
Can only read 3 articles without having to pay?? 1/5
By Crappy, unsecured app
You can only view three articles before it wants you to sign up for a 7 day trial and then be charged after that. No thanks. I’ll stick with CNN and my local news apps.
Please add a dark mode!!! I’ve been resorting to using the mobile site and reader mode with dark mode.
Otherwise it’s a good app, well suited to read the news.
Thank you for finally adding iPhone X support! 5/5
Looks great (even if it took forever to optimize for iPhone X).
Barely functional 1/5
Clicking on links in Safari brings me to the app... which promptly crashes.
iPhone X support/ thank you 5/5
Was waiting for this. Also not sure why so many people hate this app. Use it daily and love it. And no- I’m not 60 years old.
Digital Subscription Login Denied 2/5
By Geneva Kate
No matter how I’ve tried to log in to the app, it gives me a barrage of error messages. On my laptop, no problem! Very annoyed to not have the paper on the go, that’s one of the reasons I got the subscription!
Banner Ads between every paragraph 1/5
This is not the times I remember, it’s good reporting used to sell United Airlines banner ads.
The new app has an ad in-between every paragraph, and worse, it’s the same United ad embedded in every article, in-between every paragraph. As a paid subscriber this is not acceptable
Stopped working in iPad 1/5
App stopped downloading new news and then stopped working completely on iPad. Sent an email to NYTimes support over a week ago. Glad I've been a subscriber for almost 10yrs.
Cannot enter comment 1/5
When is the app going to be iPhone X ready?
Please support iPhone X 3/5
Good news but weak interface
Thank you! The NYTimes app now works on our old iPhone! 5/5
By Peaceful summer
Updates for the Times had caused your app to cease functioning altogether on the iPhone 4S, but now the Times is back! Thank you for helping us get a little longer life out of our older devices, the iPad 3 as well. Super grateful.
As always, appreciate the dedicated journalism and excellent writing of the Times, especially now.
(Spouse still misses the “Scheduling and Scoreboard” listings that used to be at the top of the sports section, says to tell you he considered it the best part of the whole newspaper. Any chance of getting that back?)
The content is great if you can read it through all the Ads 1/5
By Scarry Monkey
I have a subscription that I will be canceling because there are so many Ads that the reading of one article is difficult. It is so annoying that one has to suffer through a big photo ad in between 2 maybe 3 if your lucky paragraphs. Unacceptable. You are better off getting the printed paper, stay away from this app and any digital subscription from the NT Times!
Please help! 1/5
I’ve suddenly found myself disabled with plenty of time on my hands.. I enjoy reading digital print as all forms of tech are at my side 24/7. However does any of the major players who run the NYT and the digital print section know of how lousy your app is??? I rest my case!
Safari links to app don’t work 1/5
By Del Mar, CA
Following nyt links from safari no longer works. Causes a crash. Also please add a California Today link in the menu.
Already subscribed but Keeps asking me to subscribe 1/5
This app keeps asking me to subscribe in some infinite loop of incompetence. I log in and it spins and goes right back to the subscribe solicitation. Really bad app.
Better now on iPhone but way too many ads 3/5
The app has notably improved on the iPhone where it used to be super slow. The ads have gotten worse though. It’s every few paragraphs right in the middle of the article. I’m a paid subscriber. Why do I need to see them? Or at least cut them back. They also need to be more relevant and not the same ad over and over again.
User unfriendly 1/5
When a newspaper is this cumbersome to read, why read it at all. The times app doesn't refresh, shuts down, and is too much work to ask of a reader. I've read the nytimes for over 30 years until the app pushed me away. The Washington Post has an efficient and user friendly app that I now read. I miss the NY Times and wish they'd resolve their app design.
The auto-run ads with sound are intolerable 2/5
The NYT app used to be the benchmark by which I judged other news apps. No more. This version makes enjoying the paper increasingly difficult.
I put up with the fact it takes multiple attempts to get the app to open and the fact it frequently snaps shut while I'm in the middle of an article, but what's simply intolerable are the video ads that start up on their own while I'm reading. I shouldn't have to mute my iPad every time I want to sit quietly and read the paper. I don't even like video news, which is why I read a paper in the first place!
I will guarantee that I'll boycott any advertiser who runs an auto-start video on the NYT. I accept there must be ads, but as a subscriber I resent having ads suddenly start playing that aren't visible on the screen, that I must scroll to find, and that are difficult to stop. Even when I manage to stop one, it will often restart on its own.
Please fix this so that people who like to sit and read quietly while others sleep can do so in peace.
Fake News! 1/5
Very Fake News!
iPhone X support would be nice 1/5
Not like I’m paying you guys for your services. Oh wait I am. Also it’s scummy that you want to double dip on ads within the app to paying subscribers? Why shouldn’t I just read in a browser with an Adblock or within Apple News at that rate??
LIBERAL, LIBERAL, LIBERAL 1/5
This is more than an agenda driven publication... its a activist publication! Why can’t news be truthful and honest!
Fake news 1/5
Ads for paid subscribers? 1/5
By Sir Picasso
I GUESS an ad here or there would be okay but these articles feel littered with ads.
1/2 the reason I subscribed to NYT was to get rid of them.
iPhone X support please 3/5
I just received an email saying you’re raising the price of my subscription. Yet, you’ve not updated this app for the iPhone X screen. Surely, some of that extra money I’m giving you can be allocated to supporting this app.
