App Reviews

  • Very Good- Just a Few Needed Adjustments

    By imaginal
    In general, I find this NYT app to be easily usable and attractive. I do have a few complaints, though. I don’t like the way the Top Stories page is layed out. The top stories are crowded to the left of the page with the opinion pieces on the right. Please give the top stories their due space. Also, the Opinion section does not consistently display bylines in the general Opinions page. Some pieces do, but often I must open the article to see who wrote it. This is not fair to the writers and inconvenient for me who looks for my favorites. Lastly, I am complaining here because there is no feedback link in the app that I could find. Just to be clear, this NYT app is my first choice very morning and will continue to be.
  • Fake News.

    By abisalgado
    This newspaper is mostly fake news.
  • Count it: 1 Screen-Wide Ad every 4 paragraphs

    By Driven_aol
    Too much of a good thing. ... You gotta pay the bills; I get it. But between the 'you have no choice but to view this Ad' and/or video, reading through an article quickly is tedious. ... Pay the bills, but remember subscribers are paying for the privilege of reading articles, not for looking at Ads and having their data collected and sold on to 3rd parties. UPDATE: Had hopes NYT would tweak the formula for this update, but no joy. The app has become the best argument going for print copies. .... Dump the app, pick up a hard copy and read through articles in peace without advertisers shouting at you every 4 paragraphs.
  • Photos not displayed with text

    By David Kirkby
    Some articles only show the first photo and gray boxes for all subsequent photos. However the photos display fine in full screen when I click on them individually, so it is not a downloading issue. The ability to displaying a story's photos along with its text seems a low bar. What are the app devs spending their time on instead?
  • Best news source; terrible app

    By Epictetus.p
    The omnipresence of ads ruins the reading experience. Repetitive slipper and razor ads are infuriating. I move everything I want to read to ‘Pocket’. The ads are stripped. The interface is poorly designed for use on phones and tablets.
  • Missing names of OpEd Columnists

    By GringoNC
    Why not show the names of your oped columnists in addition to the title of their pieces? It allows for easier selection of what as a reader I’m interested in reading. Also, slow down on the advertisements every 2 or 3 paragraphs.
  • How Do You Stay in Business?

    By Langurss
    ...with your utterly ridiculous left slant? Don't waste your time on this garbage. I'm not interested in NYT's zealous and misguided opinions - which is precisely what this app. advances.
  • I have saved some time; “I d. k.”

    By maxy@bu
    The problem could have only happened to my N. Y. Times app. a few moments ago, and I could have jumped to a “wrong” conclusion. For an article named “Ex’rested,” there is a “gesture” icon. I tapped this icon and tried to tap an icon with four arrows. This second icon didn’t function. I imagine that this 2nd icon is supposed to enlarge a document. I thank you for making the document available to me; I’m happy to be able to read this document. I thank you for taking the time to read my comment.
  • Ads Everywhere

    By BathroomBuddhaha
    It’s unfortunate that the app still shows countless ads even though I pay the monthly subscription. The student discount is nice, and the content is interesting, but the ads are very annoying and distracting from the actual content.
  • Decent

    By Sldkfjfkrnrkfk
    The app is very straightforward. The design for displaying stories is nice however the article pages seem unfinished. Navigating off the app and back on later may sometimes lead to losing your spot in an article. App doesn’t offer many features other than reading their articles and listening to their podcasts. Additionally, a paid subscriber ought not to be subjected to continuous advertising within the app’s Home screen and articles. Overall, an app that gets the job done and nothing more. Edit: share button doesn’t work. Downgraded to two stars. (Sharing is important when it comes to journalism, on would think)
