Customer Reviews


I read "The New York Times" every day via the "Today's Paper" Web app. Lately, however, I have been noticing that some articles are not being published in "Today's Paper"; the headlines are there, but below the headlines, there is nothing. This is, of course, a ridiculous oversight -- or, rather, an ongoing series of ridiculous oversights -- and I have contacted the "Times" on numerous occasions to complain. But nothing has changed.

Frustrated, I checked out the "Times" iOS app today for the first time in a long time, hoping that they had added some kind of "Today's Paper" feature since I last tried it. Alas, they have not. There is, therefore, currently no way to read the print edition of the "Times" without reading the actual print edition. This is very unfortunate, because reading the print edition, as opposed to reading whatever stories happen to be featured on the app or the website at a given moment, is the only sensible way to read the "Times" (if you're using the "Times" as your main news source, as I do), and because doing so online is vastly preferable to doing so with the physical newspaper.

I won't be using this app again anytime soon, and I'm afraid I may have to say the same for the "Times."

Needs improvement

I’ll be honest here, NYT is not my favorite news source. However, as the article about Louis C. K. was about to drop, I received an email from the NYT, offering a subscription at 50% off for one year. Convenient, since I really wanted to read that article, and every time I attempt to read a NYT piece, I am not allowed to because I have exhausted my monthly quota of free articles.

Anyways, the app: the setup is confusing. I’d love to elaborate, but I haven’t quite figured it out yet. What’s really frustrating for me is the fact that I have purchased an NYT subscription, yet there is still ads in the middle of articles. I’m signed into the app with the same credentials that I used to subscribe and I would think that that would eliminate the need for generating ad revenue from me. I know paying neo-liberals to sell the next war to us is expensive, but come on...

Will likely unsubscribe and delete the app when I’m thoroughly bored with it all.


I opened an app on my Ipad that said NYT on the icon. The app that opened appeared different than what I am use too. The difference being a substantial amount of more ads and less than ideal UI. Being a subscriber to NYT, I was enraged by what I perceived to be a new format. After deleting the app that I had opened I searched NYT in the app store and left a nasty 1 star review. I then went to open my other news apps and found a second NYT app icon. Confused I opened it to find the app I was expecting. Im not sure if I somehow downloaded some NYT scamming app by accident or if the second app is NYT separate version to fit a different audience. What I do know is that there is a good version out there, so don't be like me if you open an app full of disappointment and post a poor review look for the good version.
