App Reviews

  • Processor Burn

    By music_beat
    Current version crashes frequently. It also has choppy scrolling. The phone gets extremely hot just reading an article. Clearly something is wrong with this app since it is turning my phone into a hot plate.
  • App crashing

    By Ah3389
    Great app but crashes with nearly every use since last update.
  • Frequent freezing and autoplay ads with audio

    By Spudvision
    For something I pay money for it certainly feels like I’m being cheated. The app freezes and needs to be force quit when failure to load ads due to poor network conditions, like on the subway, causes it to freeze. Recently the app now starts automatically playing ad audio and music, also awkward on the subway. I’ve reported bugs directly to The NY Times and they have gone unfixed for years. Love the paper, hate this garbage app.
  • What happened?

    By Bub's #1 Fan
    The New York Times app is absolutely the cornerstone of my news sources. I look at it more often than almost anything on my phone. But what is wrong with the app? All of a sudden it’s buggy (crashes and lags as you scroll) and now it seems to heat up my phone as I’m reading. It seriously makes my phone almost too hot to touch. Please NYT, fix it!
  • Five Stars

    The New York Times does great work. They report better than everyone else, and have information that no one else has. Happy to be a subscriber.
  • No homepage link

    By beingandbecoming
    The issue with this app is that there’s no ability to return to the home page. So now I simply use a home screen link and open NYT in Safari so that I can return to the top of the page with a tap and then click on the link to return to the homepage. Having to go back and back and back is a serious design overlook.
  • Latest Version Problems

    By Jeffie789
    App will not update the news stories. Also crashes.
  • Used to load seamlessly. Not anymore.

    By comediocre
    Not sure what changed, but everything lags and hangs now.
  • Love NYT but...

    By Lwjpaw
    The iOS app works well but with ads every paragraph it has destroyed my user experience. I am deleting it and only using the online version.
  • Laggy, annoying advertisements, crashes

    By atask11
    I’ve had the NYTimes app for a long time. Separating content from tech in this review - NYTimes content is what it is: broad, amazing, often biased. Tech is becoming more and more annoying: crazy-long load times, ads that herky-jerk and expand the article you’re ready, losing your place or crashing the whole thing. As I waited for a news story to load just now I flipped to YouTube and ran a video that I’d never watched started instantly. So a text news story with one photograph takes 90 seconds but a video starts instantly? Please.
