Great app but stability is a problem 4/5
Good app. Site crashes some times.
Bad move to take away the joy of flipping newspaper pages. 2/5
Just give me the option to read Times of India as a traditional newspaper. There is a joy in reading a newspaper instead of having to pick topics. I NEED THE WHOLE NEWSPAPER.
New update is waste of time! 1/5
TOI can be so cheap in developing a decent app is unbelievable!
New Design is Beautiful! 5/5
By Srini Iyer
2018-02-13 Really like the new design.
Annoying Newspaper. 1/5
By C Patel
Biased. Narrow minded. Pro-Congress rag. Often plagiarized the news and reviews are at best second hand and third rate. Tech section is a sell out. I use it as an example of what should be avoided by a news site in 21st century where facts and sources can be crosschecked in a fraction of a minute.
Most helpful to read news in morning with Tea 5/5
By A.b.a. Baba
Updated review 2/5
I have lowered my rating of the app. I have used it for a very long time now and the main bugs are still present. The articles jump up when trying to read them. No links in an article work. And other things. I read this every day to keep up with India happenings. It seems that these things would have been corrected long ago by now. Other news apps I use do not have these failings.
Lots of improvement needed to live upto the reputation of TOI! 2/5
The newspaper is very well sought after - and hence the apps is widely used. But it has annoying characteristics that the line won’t move. Some sections (such as Sports) does not get updated for days. The look of the site is good and we all put up with the technical inconveniences because we prefer this newspaper to many others available around us.
Needs more work 2/5
Content is good. But somethings needs fixing
1) when you go back from an article to Home page, stop the app from going to the top of the page since this is very annoying
2) for some reason, photos has never worked on iPad (works on iphone though)
Pretty ordinary app, several bugs 3/5
By Vivek chand.
I am always mystified by how bad this app is. Does TOI even test this to see where it fails? And India is the software capital of the world? Out of the papers I read (mostly international) this is the worst.
Useless app 1/5
When I try to read a news item on the iPad, it keeps scrolling back to the top every few minutes.
It’s very frustrating and makes it completely useless on the iPad.
TOI NEWS APP 3/5
By SkBhatia IITDA FMSA IIMA
VERY HELPFUL to get news, particularly when you are abroad.
Needs pruning and edition- old news continue though there can be separate pages/sections for news over say 48 hours.
Sports page is horrible and seems that no one of TOI staff looks at it- month old news repeated, current not elaborated...
Can this not be designed as the actual daily paper is?
Mention date & time of updation. Metro news can be more & elaborated. Why not add some interesting VIDEOS news-related or of public interest
Cricket section is not refreshing to latest page 3/5
It's been almost two years and my Cricket page is struck om India New Zealand series. I even flushed my iOS but it never worked. I did flushed in and out TOI apps.
I am not sure it is just my iPad as my iPhone is working perfectly.
Excellent source of reliable news almost always
Should update more often specifacally citi news.needs more foreign news.
More in depth tech. Will be helpful
OK, should have links related to articles presented. Loading issues are common, articles are incomplete at times
Does not include web links nor pictures embedded in various stories, like Reuters or AP. Needs much improvement. However better than other News Apps for India news.
The contents constantly shake up & down as the advt at the bottom of the page keeps changing. This is a big distraction since you lose the context being read to find it once the page has settled down.
Also needs more embedded pics & video to compete with the other news sites.
Times of India 5/5
Jittery pages 1/5
Takes the joy out of reading news by scrolling the page to the top every few seconds when the ads get refreshed...
Tech Section news on ipad never gets refreshed 1/5
It has been more than 6 now. On my ipad, articles only under TECH section isn't getting updated. I have tried uninstall and reinstalling the app. But no respite. It keeps showing the same aged articles. All other sections are fine though. Is there someone from developer team who can look into this issue?
Worst app ever 1/5
Worst performing app
Bias reporting 1/5
By Tara dumb
Worthless, useless , horrible company , not at all IT friendly.
Very bad app, good content 1/5
The app has not worked at all for weeks, despite OS updates and re-installs. Before that it had glitches that I was learning to live with.
Sad app 1/5
Bad Bad Bad ! Worked fine, now major issues. Hope TOI gets its FIX !
Poor performance. 1/5
Screen blank on start up, no updates available.
Technically several issues. Does not refresh.
News quality is poor. You get porn websites on front page.
Downfall from paper copy.
Horrible app 1/5
Ridiculous app - the only news app I have come across that refreshes the ads so often that the article keeps scrolling to top. What is the point of a news app in which you can't even read the news?!
And now the photos don't load as well. Shame on TOI..
Come on TOI, AT LEAST FIX LOADING PHOTOS ON IPAD!
The Times of India 5/5
By Jogi 38
TOI keeps updated. One does not need to refer to any other source to find out what's current in the whole world.
Deleting the app - they harbor the false propagandist Rajshekhar Jha 1/5
By Babu with Aamir
Without any shame this sycophant of RSS smeared the reputation of a missing student and family just because the student's believe. Shame on TOI for not sacking this RSS worker.
Total Crap 1/5
This app is not for news, it is just for stupid advertisements.. Don't waste time..
Still crap, no images load up in articles. Image gallery never opens.
Bye bye TOI
Looks like you all challenge yourself everyday on how bad your app can get and more often than not you are successful in going worse. Seriously horrible app
Nags you to rate it. 1/5
I hate the "please please rate us" pop-up dialogs. AS DOES EVERYONE.
There, I've rated you one star for nagging me to rate you.
TOI Review 5/5
By Hot Boy 3698
Excellent news articles with all new events and facts!
Horrible app 1/5
Most of the time does not work.
bad app 2/5
Iphone app is better than ipad.
App can be improved to prevent the scrolling up of the article being read
Worst News app ever 1/5
1 cannot complete reading even a single article as the news scrolls up or automatically goes to next article every time the ad refreshes
2 The app should be names of times of advertisements
3 There are no pictures in the articles
4 The developer of this app and the testing team should be banned from writing any future iOS apps
Epic failure, worst app ever 1/5
Such a bad app, no app support or improvement over time. Shame on TOI
Bad App, helpful news articles 3/5
1. Some of the articles do not load except the title and photo.
2. Many times, while trying to scroll down the article, it moves up and hard to hold it down to read at the bottom.
3. Cricket: Just terrible. I have tried many times to see coverage of current on-going test match, and could find nothing in the cricket section.
It's strange that India produces so many IT professionals but TOI can,t find anybody to develop a decent app and improve it over several years. That's kind of sad that management doesn't pay attention to customers.
Commercial News for Business 1/5
Train derailed with 97 BMW cars makes to TOI online front page whereas a farmer suicide news hardly fit as a new piece. Viral, glamour, and materialistic new take precedence than real news.
Very good app 5/5
By Rabi USA
Very good. I use it every day.
A bad app 1/5
It is one of he worst apps that I have seen. The article keeps scrolling to the top while I am reading it.
The layout requires an overhaul. It must be made more pleasing to the eyes
Times of India 2/5
By Avid CA reader
It is very annoying that app continues to refresh the page while you reading an article.
Stop refreshing the page unless the reader actually intiates it. Improve the reader experience by taking this annoyance out.
Worst App on App Store 1/5
This App frustrates you so much that somebody like me who never rates an app will be bound to write a review so that I can save a crucial time of somebody's life.
ADs on this App refreshes the page so you cannot actually read a news below the first page. Stupid isn't it ?
Good app & useful info. Tone down the frequency of alerts for more effectiveness
Horrible app please don't download 1/5
The app resizes text to accommodate ads appearing at the bottom causing the page to resize and scroll. The developers should learn something about news apps from others like nytimes or bbc or sfgate. I had downloaded it because times of India on the iPad won't work unless I disable ad blocker which Safari and Chrome did without my intervention. No other website is like this.
I deleted mine and won't use it again. I'm ashamed that the prime news agency in India is creating this.
Worst news app!!! 1/5
Page gets automatically refreshed and scrolls to the top. So distracting.
The pictures are not available on the iPad version. There are random numbers only. If you go to the mobile site then you will realize that there's a picture there.
Takes ages to load.
Horrible app.....Times group, action is desperately needed. Shame on you fellas.....
Auto refreshes and scrolls back to the top while reading. You should be ashamed of releasing such garbage!!
Worst app on the market 1/5
Can't read a full story because the app keeps on scrolling to the top to load ads. Really shameful that a prestigious newspapaer such as thenTimes cannot put out a decent app.
0 stars, but have to give a minimum of 1
Not good 1/5
It is disappointing to see that India's leading newspaper can't design a decent app. Items don't get updated on most tabs other than the home tab.
