Has potential but the NYTimes web site is better


Finally, with version 1.3 this runs on my Japan based iphone 3G.
It is still a fair bit slower than the NYT web page, and that is over wifi.
And I wonder why the developers haven't utilized any of the iphone's
funkier features in this App. Tilt to scroll and/or auto-scroll would be
nice. And the navigation buttons are WAY too huge, eating up valuable
screen real estate even before the ads pop up. On more than one occasion
when I turned the phone to go to panorama view, the page view jumped
back to the top of the (long) article I was reading. Scrolling back down to the
point in the article I was up to was made more difficult by the lack of a scroll
bar to grab. Also it would be nice to be able to 'flick' an article to adjust the
scroll speed in the same way one can when searching through iphone contacts.
One final piece of constructive criticism (aka gripe!) when I clicked on a link in
an article, it opened the NYT's regular homepage within the app (not Safari).
I though, 'oh good I can log into my NYTimes account now'. On clicking to
enter my details, I was horrified to find that no keyboard appeared.
Thanks for the app, thanks for listening, I realize it's early days but
it would be great to see some of these above mentioned issues addressed
in future releases.

Very poor effort..


This app is what I call a pig with lipstick. All shiny on top and garbage underneath. I've been trying to use this app and have anxiously waited for the last 2 updates hoping it would fix it, but my hopes have been dashed. The problem with this application is that it just seems to sit there *forever* updating with no discernable results. After "synching" endlessly for over 15 minutes (Wireless, not 3G), when you click on an article in any section, it takes upwards of 10 seconds to download the page contents!! Hello????? What on earth is it constantly updating for then?? What's with the "Faster updates" comment in the list of fixes for the previous update? This issue has plagued this application since 1.0, and has never been fixed

For such a large and reputable publisher, this app needs a lot of refinement before it makes its way back on my iPhone.

Some Stability Aside, an Excellent App

Noel OS

I have used this application almost daily for 2 years. The download speed improved significantly in between which once was the greatest frustration. Now I get occasional crashes after the splash screen with no explanation (also, once loaded, is there really a need to display the splash screen for 10 seconds each time I return? Use the background task APIs).

So, those gripes aside, a well designed app, great for offline consumption and, of course, some really excellent content. When travelling in Peru I could download days' worth of news in a few minutes at a hotspot and read throughout the day.

And they even added a feature I requested (rotation lock) in the very next dot-release. Quality.
