There must have been a background update recently that has made this app even worse. As of today, December 15, 2017, there are now long delays with the spinning gear while waiting for a selected article to open. Very frustrating and time/battery wasting.

Often not responsive and too many ads even with paid monthly subscription. It also keeps forgetting I'm a subscriber and makes me re-enter my credentials. Videos connected with articles almost never play (although the associated ad videos seem to work just fine, which of course is just wonderful).

Excellent product


this is truly one of the nations best newspapers. The investigative reports article to any.
I subscribe to the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the LA Times. A four day Home delivery subscription is remarkably inexpensive plus it gives you unlimited digital content.
Society needs good newspapers. If you have an interest in the news, state and national, the Times Will satisfy you.

One of the best news sources, app is hot mess.


I love the LA Times because of the high quality, well-vetted, and evenly reported news stories.

However the app is literally a hot mess. Whenever I use the app, my phone heats up so much that it’s uncomfortable to use for more than 3 articles at a time. Also, my iPhone 7 battery drains at such an alarming rate while using the app. I can’t casually read on the go without worrying about power consumption and battery levels.
