Customer Reviews

Infuriatingly unpleasant to use

Seems like it would be a small thing to create a simple news reading app for paying subscribers. Apparently not. The daily frustrations with the NYTimes app have reached a critical mass with me: it's shockingly power hungry, always one if the biggest battery killers in my phone. You can't add comments or recommend them, so you'll end up in the website if you're interested at all in comments. Just as well, because as you scroll down the comments list you notice that after a few scrolls it duplicates earlier comments, as if you're walking in circles. Most maddening of all (at the moment), just scrolling down in an article invariably selects one of the many add links, kicking you out to Safari. Where you probably should have started.

The only bright star I can see at the moment is that at least I'm not paying the higher subscription tier for the privilege of using the iPad app.

I loved the Times on newsprint, loved it on line and now I love it on my iPhone.

This is a great app. Not only can you easily search the archives going back to the beginning of "Times" right on your phone but I love the weekday daily briefing that comes right to my phone every morning (in 10 seconds I can see what's happening; when it's convenient for me) I also love the little news alerts. You can get news anywhere on the web from your phone but how the Times makes it accessible and easy is wonderful. And as a bonus well, it's The New York Times. LOVE!

Key Survival Tool

Reading the NYT on my IPhone helps me survive our world, which often feels like it's upside down. I read it before I get out of bed in the morning, and before I turn out the light at night. It offers truth, humor, and creativity in an apocalyptic world. The morning briefing makes me smile. I love the breaking news alerts, most e-mailed stories, and God did you see the piece about angora bunnies in the magazine? The re-designed mag is a weekly bundle of surprises: great writing, art. It's a whole support system on a small screen!
