App Keeps Getting Worse

Buddy Bolden

I really wish those responsible for this app would focus on delivering basic functionality for those of us who wish to read the news, rather than devoting so much energy to videos, virtual reality, and the like. I pay hundreds of dollars a year for my print subscription to the Times, and generally only resort to the app on days when it isn’t delivered due to a “production delay.” On those days, it drives me nuts that after recent updates, the last line of text before each ad is always partially obscured by the ad. It’s as if the Times has no respect whatsoever for its own reporters and the content they produce, let alone the readers who support them.

Also, I have several iOS devices, including an older iPod Touch that runs iOS 9.3.5. It's very aggravating that this app basically doesn't work at all on that device, since the description claims it's compatible with 9.0 and above.

The New York Times remains the indispensable source for Americans who hope to be informed about what is going on in the United States and the world. It is a terrible shame that this app doesn't do a better job of bringing the paper of record into the digital realm.

Ads for paid subscriptions????

I quite understand the need to support NYT journalism with advertising on the paper version (which itself involves costs) and on the unpaid version of the news app/website. However, to bloat every single article viewed through a digital subscription with multiple advertisements is a true disservice to loyal subscribers. It is all the more disturbing because under previous versions the platform was ad-free and more complete (i.e. archive access?). Thus NYT digital subscribers now pay exactly the same amount each month for a service that has considerably worsened over time. The majority of other news apps do not include advertising in the “premium”/ paid subscription versions of their applications.
I have been a NYT reader for many years, and I am happy to contribute monetarily to the important journalistic work this paper does. However, there must be a better way, that is less offensive to the paper’s subscribers!
Please return to the previous ad-free approach for digital subscriptions.

The ads aren't so bad, but the....


I've been a NYT subscriber for over 20 years and I love it! It always made my day seeing the NYT in my driveway, especially on Sunday. After moving to the country I had to start using the digital edition and it's really, really great.
This last update and new app could use a few tweaks. I do enjoy the layout and it's esthetically very enjoyable. And the ads, no big deal! You have ads in all print newspapers and magazines that you pay for, so what's the issue? They're not interfering with the stories so I'm fine with it. What I do not like is the fact you can't add or move more of your favorite sections to the top column like before. You can only move like 5 or 6 now. Really wish you'd correct that please.
But other than that I still really enjoy it and will continue to subscribe.
Thank you!
