Customer Reviews

Great app

This is a great app. It's exactly what newspapers should do to stay up with the digital world. I hope that this is a trend in the industry. Newspaper's are position perfectly to provide us with in-depth coverage and the Times Union does that so very well. Combining a newspaper's indepth coverage with digital content, such as video, up-to-date weather and breaking news stories is a win-win.

The app works as it should

I'm at a loss to understand the negative reviews. I've used the app for over two years and have never experienced the problems described by the unhappy reviewers. I have found that all of the features work, and work well. The app makes reading the paper easy and enjoyable.

Stopped getting Sunday edition back in June

I bought a year of the ipad edition along with Sunday delivery of the physical paper. I stopped getting the Sunday delivery in June; TU customer service claims to have no idea what I am talking about. Every few days they call and ask if I would be interested in subscribing. I tell them I am already a subscriber. I've sent them my itunes receipt multiple times.
