Better than paper


I have read the App six days a week and the paper on Sundays for the last few years. I like the simple fast way you can move from article to article on the left navigation bar. I like that we get to see many pictures where only one would be in print. I like that the iPad rests comfortably on my lap (with a keyboard stand) as compared to awkward newspaper.

Of course I have a wish list. Articles may lead to discussions on the web...i wish there was a link. The TU has some good blogs...why not put links to them in the navigation bar? And believe it or not, I would like to see more advertising...i enjoy learning about small local businesses via ads, but this app only has a few from regional-size businesses.

Worst app ever


Now, the app won’t even open on the latest iPad 9.7.

Previously— I have been sending the TU corrective suggestions for a couple of years, and the same problems continue to plague the iPad app.
Spillover of type has been corrected and then failed again and again. Recently, a new goof has appeared -- click on business and get sports.
Also, recently, there were entire sections missing. I have given up reporting these errors, because it's frustrating enough to have to deal with them and my reporting doesn't seem to matter enough to fix the problems permanently.

Times Union


I thoroughly enjoy it. However, since the latest iOS upgrade, there is a glitch with the crosswords. Clues and arrows do not appear in the horizontal bar just below the puzzle. Thus, navigating is harder and some clues are too long to appear in their totality in the lists of clues. Thank you ahead of time for correcting that.
