It works!

After weeks of dutifully trying to open the app once or twice a day, and succeeding only three or four times -- and then only to an app that worked fitfully and briefly before crashing -- it opened instantly today! Stories popped up swiftly! Photos appeared! Scrolls zipped along! Someone flip a forgotten switch? Happy to also see big improvements over the design I briefly saw after first downloading the new app: Willingness t mix up the number of columns, and the layout of screens in different sections; running some headlines now without photos; more variation in photo size; the "latest" story list below the first one or two screens of featured stories. (Maybe that one was there from the start, it never worked long enough for me to explore that far before.) All excellent decisions. Huzzah!

New Layout misses the mark - badly

I have been using the iPad NYT app for along time. The last version I loaded was 3.18 (icon with white "T" on black background). That old app is the only one I will still read. Thankfully it is still on my iPad and still works.

The new app version 6.1.1 (icon with black "T" on white background) seems to be formatted for mindless browsing and not serious reading. The articles are offered in an order that seems to focus on sensationalism, not newsworthiness. The article headlines and titles do not match the website or printed version. There are less leading statements to help define the story. It is far less appealing.

This new version does not invite exploration or serious reading. It does not fit your long-demonstrated intent of presenting serious journalism. Keep trying because it is critical that you get this right.

Prefer the old website and search function is terrible

Thank you for all your reporting BUT your technology is less than good. I used to prefer to read the NYT on my iPad to paper, but the new version is TERRIBLE. It is not laid out well, it's hard to find things. I really miss that I can’t scroll down to the next session. The page is badly organized. I AM SO FRUSTRATED! please revise again.
The search function continues to be terrible - it has been bad for a long time. Please try testing it yourselves - it doesn't find anything relevant to the search terms, even when I put in the exact words in a headline!

YOU CAN DO BETTER - just go back to what you had before, it was so much better
