Customer Reviews

Latest photo update is POOR

Feb 2015-- The last update on the photos is very poorly done. I read it on an iPhone 5S, and when I double click on a photo to enlarge it, it is IMPOSSIBLE to see all parts of the picture. SAME for illustrations and figures and charts.

Latest update, Oct 2014 -- much better with lack of full-age ads, and so far seems not to lose my selected sections. BUT IT CRASHES RANDOMLY every 20 min or so.

Latest update, Nov 2013, no longer crashes nor loses my section preferences. Would have given it 5 stars but (1) it still refuses to delete several sections I don't want and (2) I STILL am STARTLED by random unexpected full-page ads. I keep a list of their sponsors - e.g., I will NEVER buy Celine products.

now, IN BETWEEN CRASHES every 10 minutes, it randomizes and deletes my selected sections to read.

It constantly puts back into SAVED the articles I had UNsaved AND loses all my settings and list/order of sections.

And, for a paid subscription, it forces me to be startled by unexpected full-page ads.

A step down from the website

There is an ad that you can't dismiss at the bottom of the page. This ad persists whether looking at headlines or reading articles. It's better to create a home screen shortcut to the mobile site in Safari (use share->homescreen when at the site).

Note that you're also paying up to $8 a week for ads there, but at least they scroll away and don't permanently take up screen space. I believe using only the website costs less money anyway.

Just awful. Only reason I keep app on my phone is so I know of updates and update this review.

Why Ads?

I have an annual subscription. I'd think paying for that would be enough, but now there's an ad that won't go away. It bothers me when I'm trying to keep up with current events. If I'm going to have ads anyway, why the subscription? I could always cancel and just use Safari's private browser to constantly get ten free articles. But I pay for a subscription to support the NYTimes. A rather pricy one at that. Please stop trying to make a few extra pennies off paying readers.
