It's a great app, but in my experience, it tends to be quite buggy. The most frustrating issue — and one with which I've been coping for some time now — is as follows: Seemingly every other day, the app signs me out of my all-access account for no evident reason, which is a pain, to say the least, to rectify on such a frequent basis. I'd also like to point out that yes, a subscription for the New York Times is unquestionably overpriced; that said, it has always been so, and should not come as a surprise, accordingly. Further, the invasive nature of the ads, which take up a disproportionate amount of space even on my iPhone's 4-inch screen, is exceedingly bothersome, especially considering the price of the aforementioned subscription.
I have no idea what the complaints are about from other reviews. I have had this app for about 3 weeks now and it's definitely one of my favorites. I spend a lot of time on the road so I greatly appreciate apps I can entertain myself with when out eating dinner alone and this is perfect for that. It's great to be informing myself about current events rather than merely killing time. The app is gorgeous to look at and the text works well in the format of the phone. Some people are unhappy about still having ads even when you subscribe. I'll admit I'm not crazy about that but really am not too bothered.
Best news app out there. Use it everyday!
I havent encountered any bugs so far. the app looks good
I don't understand why it's rated low, this app is AWESOME. Easy to navigate and great reading, of course. Five stars all the way :)
I dont get why it doesnt include TV , Media & Education sections !!!! I need these sections for my job... what gives @nytimes ?!???
If your news is frozen on feb 1 delete and re-install the app, it worked for me.
I'm a subscriber and I liked the app much better than the 90's WSJ app, but new content now isn't refreshing after the Jan 30th update. I'm stuck with 'news' from Feb 1. When it works, though, I like the app.
Updated review: I deleted and re-downloaded the NYT app this morning. It is now refreshing perfectly. Good as new. .........,,, The app won't update in iPhone 5S after January 31. Very frustrating! Otherwise, I love the app - it's my go-to news source. Please help NYT!
I have read The Times since I was a child and this app is amazing.
Still can't easily send articles to safari reading list. Twitter, Politico, and now Flipboard has this but NY Times can't implement it.
Do yourself a favor and sign up
Love the full page views. Wish it had a black night reading mode.
This app makes reading the Times surprisingly easy. I'm not sure why people are fussing about banner ads, they're not that intrusive and I'm pretty sure ads are caked all over the print edition of every newspaper in the world. That's just par for the course when it comes to newspaper subscriptions. A couple of things I would like to see different are a Today's Paper section and a little tightening up on the overlapping of articles associated with different sections. There's no reason for me to see the same article in the Top News section also appear under the World section. It would also be nice if the Times stuck dates under the headlines so I know what's old news and what's new news.
In general dig the update for os7 but am not a fan of the border at top of pics and vids. This should be made to disappear in landscape view, yet it stays. Why? It needlessly obscures images and makes what could be a great user experience annoying.
The NY Times app is getting progressively more difficult to read. Many of my favorite features, which used to be available off-line, can only be read when there's an internet connection; and whoever is posting the One-Page Magazine doesn't seem to have uploaded the phone-friendly size, and I can't zoom out to make it readable. It's all taking away from the intended convenience of the app.
The reading experience in Safari's read mode is so much nicer, with the use of Helvetica and full screen reading experience sans ads. I don't use the app for anything but alerts.
Got a 3 month subscription for Christmas, love reading it during class. I wish the Style & Weddings pages were updated more frequently.
My most used app. Update looks great. Nice job!
Very professional and well written
I can not delete this app let alone go into from the Icon I have to go through the App Store to get to it n open
How money hungry are you? 10 articles a month. Ridiculous.
I want to READ the NYT. More than one thing happens every 3 days. 10 per month is ridiculous. $16/mo sub is not a solution.
10 a month. I never minded the ads, but 10 a month, just deleted.
I came to the App Store to download again. It only gives me the option of "open" which works fine, but there is no longer a NY Times app.
Down from 90 a month (3free articles a day) to 10? Come on Times
App is now restricted to ten articles a month, making it all but useless unless you are up for paying $180 / year to subscribe.
App will not load after updating. Thought I'd give this thing another shot an hence subscribe. Still not worth it. Who the heck is developing this thing?
With the latest app update, I've been denied access to my subscription and when I try "renewing" it tells me subscription not found. Thanks, guys. Will I lose all my saved articles again like last time the app had a problem? We'll see after I call up customer service.
The change from able to read three articles per day to ten per month is disappointing. For me looks like I will delete the Times app and go to Google or Yahoo for daily articles. Which are almost identical. As I don't live in New York, no loss.
Great content but app is buggy. I'm a digital subscriber but app suddenly said I'm not so I called nytimes customer service and they were useless and could basically care less if I dropped the account. They may want to reconsider their digital strategy if this is how they treat paying customers! So annoyed!!
Not sure about everyone else here, but I’ve found that after the last 2 updates the cover pic doesn’t change with the daily cover of the physical paper. This has happened in the past when I had the 4S. This app is getting ridiculous. This makes 4 different updates that had this bug. NY times is a decent paper but the APP is terrible
What if I want to look at a traditional front page? There's no section for contacting the Times. No way to make comments. No more most popular section, or most blogged; only most e-mailed. Now probably there's an easy fix for all of these things but the nytimes is so unintuitive and the page is so uninviting that I'm taking it down. And there are just too many deliberately designed sites to get the exact same crap. I am not tempted to play around with this silly old corpse. Bye bye NYT.
NYT is my favorite publication. Period. But this App is a travesty.
Every version of this app gets worse. It was great app when it first came out, but they have slowly limited the number of articles you can read and in general made it worse
This app no longer updates with the most recent news! It's literally stuck on news article from last month and doesn't bring in new content. It's quiet literally useless as a news app.
App is fine, lets you read articles, etc. When my trial neared expiration and I opted to not pay their recurring price, i tried cancelling via the app (not possible) and the website (not possible -- "Please call 877-xxx-xxxx if you really want to cancel." Sooooo... Played along, called, got some joker amid loud call-center din who lamented that he was not able to cancel because his "access to cancellation screen is down today" (mmmm, no it isn't) so he transfers me to other guy who begins littany script of other possible subscription options. I assure him I really wanna cancel. He hangs up!!!! I am still paying and am not happy at ALL.
This app does not allow one to see readers comments. I end up logging in through the safari browser, which defeats the purpose of having an app. Please update!!!
The app is now stuck in a time warp of Jan 29th and will not budge. What has happened????
app no longer refreshes with new news.
Often, at least once a week, the articles don't update. I'm reading one week old news.
Please fix the app. Doesn't update.
I used to be able to read 3 articles a day... Which I admit was annoying but I understood that it was Because I hadn't subscribed.... But now they cut me down to 10 articles a MONTH! That is .32 articles a day!!!! Please give them back....
My NYT app was my favorite destination until the recent upgrade. Now it crashes every time I open it before I can even view a story. Booooooo.
The app icon image isn't updating!!!
I've been a subscriber for years but am poised to cancel with these recent buggy releases. The app keeps freezing and shutting down (iPhone 5s). Awful.
I am in avenues are in big fan for years now but this new update Simply doesn't work!
Loaded the latest update, and access is limited to just three articles per day, rendering the app useless without subscription. The access to "top news" articles in the previous version was great. Do not update!!
Latest update Jan 30 2014 makes app crash after a few seconds.
I want the NY Times to survive, but $195/year is not going to happen. And now that we're limited to 3 articles, I'm looking for a replacement.
This app used to be the worst crasher of any in the big league. It has been much better recently, but as of today's update it will not stay open more than 1 minute on my iPhone 5s. Boo! I want a refund.
Thanks a lot for showing me ads when I am already paying you $15 a month. Absolutely ridiculous for an iOS app.
Beware! When text in an article is highlighted in the upper or bottom third of the screen, the article begins rapidly scrolling to the top or bottom, respectively. It's very obnoxious, especially considering how expensive the subscriptions are.
The iPhone app is always 1one day behind the print copy I receive at home. This is unacceptable!!!
The stories won't update on the app for the last few days.
Banner ads are annoying. Isn't that why I am paying, so I don't see ads. Also I felt a bit duped by the auto-renewal. I know that's probably my fault but just a reminder to shut it off if you don't want to continue.
Ads on a subscription app?! Wise up NYT or you will not be around much longer. Occasionally a full page. Which is unacceptable to me, a customer paying over $150 A YEAR for the privilege of reading this fine paper. Desperately needs to add comment functionality. Generally lacking a sense of hierarchy and a feeling of what news is Big news and what is minor. But that's industry wide. Beautiful clean design.
Scrolling is bad. Full popup ads for subscribers is ridiculous.
The NYT actually punishes people who download this app by making them stare at fixed-position ads. At least when you’re reading in the browser, the ads scroll away. NYT, get a clue and stop treating your most loyal readers like crap.
Terrible ad placement in this version makes it hard to read. And I pay for a digital subscription ? Thinking about canceling
Article being read disappears when app goes to the background.
I have subscribed to The New York Times daily and Sunday editions for 40 years. I also pay for a gift subscription to my son. I hate the new online format. The intrusive ads obscure the pages online and cheapen The Times site. For those of us who pay The Times hundreds of dollars each year, the ad saturated site is an embarrassment. I have discontinued using the Times iPhone app and urge The Times to drop the ads for paying subscribers.
Banner ads? Come on NYTimes, you are better than this. I won't be using this app.
This app does not refresh automatically or on pull down. It gets locked up on one day. For a news app that is pretty poor.
Extremely disappointing app. Why do you even have article alerts if you can't get to the article by clicking on the alert? Poorly designed. Cumbersome to navigate. Overall not worth even downloading - just check nyt.com on your phones browser
Ads everywhere. Text size fixed and no comment section. NYTimes.com have also dumbed down its website design so it no longer works well on a cellphone screen and work computer running IE8.
I don't want to move you, app! I just want to read this paper. Hate this app. Wish they'd create a feature where I'm always logged in to read the news in a web browser because I'm a subscriber.
This app is too sensitive to the touch. While attempting to SCROLL, the app opens articles instead. With the 3 article limit, this is quite annoying. Building in a step that asks IF you'd like to read the article would remedy this situation.
Previous design was much better. cumbersome to find sections you want to read. Incomplete lists of articles. Terrible search function.
I love the NYTimes, but I hate banner ads. I understand you need to do ads to survive, but the banner ads in the mobile app are poorly executed (blurry) and therefore that much more obnoxious.
I highly recommend that you do not spend your money on the New York Times media application. • Ads take up a large portion of the screen. • Ads are distracting while reading. • Ads despite paying for monthly subscription is unacceptable. Unless the ads are removed, I'm canceling my automatic subscription renewal. The reality is that the NYTimes doesn't give a F**k about its subscribers, otherwise, they would removed the ads. But we have a choice....boycott this organization. Force them to listen and respect their subscribers.
Disaster undiscussed from a newspaper
It's the New York Times and you should expect quality journalism, especially at the price you pay. They certainly deliver and day after day I am satisfied with interesting and compelling news articles, however I could do without the ads. I'm paying for your news and that should be all I get.
I want to rate it higher but despite NYT's excellent news coverage the banner ads within the application is totally distracting and very annoying. Ads between articles? Fine Ads in your face while trying to read an article? Nope
Viewing is somewhat boring and not entertaining. Ads still appear, even as a subscriber. Not ok.
I have to manually log back in every other day or so- what gives?
I purchased the ny times on I phone 5 and why I cannot read it in mac laptop not Also. I do not like this in a time when we who are giving business have to continue paying for times in different versions. it is not good policy in difficult times.
I'm not sure why this app has 3 star rating. I use the app extensively and never run into problems.
Why can't ads be shown inline (as in the iPad app and also NYT on Flipboard) instead of hovering on screen at all times?
The app needs to add a refresh icon you can press on so you can manually update the headlines and get the latest news. The auto refresh setting doesn't always work correctly.
most other reader apps, even optimized news webpages, require double tapping on a link before it jumps to a new page. Not NYT-- enjoy $25/month for banner ads, abrupt disruptions as it jumps to pages you do not intend to jump to as you scroll down-- this is a mess. I am canceling my subscription. Not worth the $.
Why do we pay for a subscription that still shows advertisements. Doesn't seem to allow offline download of content without opening app.
I mean absolutely horrible; Even more surprising after I pay for a full subscription. I get it, ads aren't going away and the way they're placed on the iPad version is actually not that intrusive, as they're more like an actual newspaper. However, the iPhone version is just bad. The floating banner ads (on every page) make an otherwise great app look amateur. I've noticed that the mobile version of the NYT is actually much better than the Newsstand app....which is kinda sad. Hopefully the NYT will figure this out.
We subscribe, paying monthly, and we still have adverts!! You have to be kidding me! We're trying to support you all, but this is a slap in the face. As others have pointed out, it's irritating and they take up too much room on the small screen. They are omnipresent--the banner ads are there even when reading a news article.
Gets me informed about the world around me while also improving my vocabulary and my writing skills. Great app!
I am no longer able to share stories from The New York Times on social media (e.g.. Facebook, Twitter, etc.) What the hell is going on?
I never installed this app but it suddenly appeared on my phone and iPad. I really do not appreciate being subscribed to something I never ordered!!
This is just a perfect mobile version of the website. Very informative!
On the squished mobile interface, every inch counts. In recent versions, NYT has seriously upped their game for ux/readability. But to now introduce tacky banner ads (without the ability to close/disregard), in an app only accessible to paying customers is pretty crappy.
This is a potentially good app ruined by ads after I paid for a subscription. It's a cell phone screen so please don't cover 10% of it with ads. I hate the constant scrolling (give me an option to page down - it's easier on the eyes). And finally, please stick to reporting the news - you are good at it. All the op-ed stuff is nauseating. I can make my own mind up on the issues of the day.
Great update. I love the improved front page with access to Opinion, Arts, etc. great job. Also, very stable. THE app for news. It really is the world standard in writing. Now I read the Times every day on the subway on my iPhone.
Come on NY TIMES. I have been requesting a night mode and a little background and font styles to make the reading experience better but so far nothing. JUST PUT A NIGHT MODE BECAUSE IT's too bright reading with the lights off!
For some reason the iPad mini version of the NYT is different from the iPad version. NYT - pls fix! Thanks
I don't mind seeing ads. But they shouldn't dominate the screen while viewing articles and sections. Show the ads inline with the article and not on top. There is hardly any room to view the article anymore!!
Please take this app out of the Newstand. Seriously. The extra folder to enter is unnecessary and a detriment to reading versus other newspapers that have standalone apps.
It has a good newspaper but better on newsstand. It's really fun to look at when your bored or if you don't want to do anything. Love this! I rate this 5 stars.
The new version of the NYT app is fantastic. At last, the app feels fast and modern.
What happened to the large font option does NYTIMES know about our aging US who needs better support and consideration? New Fonts are too small for comfort reading
I always get tricked into swiping a notification from my locked screen expecting to find more information on whatever topic was mentioned. Then it turns out they didn't even write the story yet. It's cool to put breaking news in notifications but give me something relevant when I swipe it.
Still refreshes automatically even though this feature is turned off, which means if I can't finish an article in one sitting I have to find the article again (Saved isn't working properly either) and then try to find where I left off. So annoying. Poor app for such a good paper.
