Competitor Apps Clearly Better

The WSJ and Washington Post have superior apps for reading their inferior content. I use all three and NYT's app is by far the clunkiest. For example, the WSJ allows you to read content while offline, and it is organized by each paper's edition. WSJ's formating is gorgeous - and the app is easy to use with clear organizational principles. The NYT's app allows you to read articles while offline, but there is barely any organization beyond the clunky sidebar scroll down. Scrolling to the right or left means you have no idea where the app is taking you. Absurd.

Washington Post has two apps conveniently linked together. The first is its straight-forward digital app much like the WSJ, which is well organized though not as pretty. The second is a simple, but hugely useful app that holds crisp pdf versions of the paper. You can flip between the two apps seamlessly. The NYT by comparison has no link to pdfs of its paper and instead forces you to read articles in their big block column format. The medium matters, NYT, and a huge wall of text for every artile is really sad to see coming from such a good paper.

Please fix, thanks!

By far still the best news source regardless.

NY times leads the way in journalism and journalistic story telling. They push the envelope and support their team. They give well thought out and well researched stories. Yes, this current election surprised everyone but regardless of where everyone in journalism faltered the times continues to provide excellent journalism across the full spectrum of News, Art, Politics, Science, travel, etc. China just banned The NY Times app from Apple Store!!! Obviously that country has something to be worried about. Do we? I purchased a new digital subscription because we need to support more journalistic integrity in this day and age. We need more stories and journalist questions and demanding answers from the coming Trump administration. NY Times is the gold standard and I support them. I do not want to think of a world with out journalist doing exactly what the the Times does daily. Thank you NY Times. Now let me play the crossword puzzle on the app!

Lowering rating again....

Everything (and more!) that I want to know about current events and breaking news. I love the format and the journalists are the best! No more surfing news channels to stay up to date.

After using this app for 3 months I am lowering my rating... I do not mind that I get 10 free articles to read per month- I do mind the fact that when scrolling down to select what I'm going to read the app decides that I've read it when indeed I have not and subtracts it from my free articles - this is bull. Dec 5, 2916 Lowering again .... manipulative aggressive app constantly trying to get u to buy a subscription by falsely showing u that u have read more articles than u have. I should be so lucky to read 10 of 10 in a month! If I so much as breathe on my phone the app thinks I have read one of it's articles... and then when I do want to read something I can't. Certainly with all the ads I see on this app that should more than for it. Stop trying to offer something for "free" when it really isn't.
