Great app !!
I realized right away that this would be a pay for subscription.... It wouldn't be fair to the other subscribers to provide the paper for free to only iPad 2 users.
You CAN download back issues to read (that is what the calendar drop down menu icon is for) . For my Dad with failing eyesight , this app has been a Godsend and the only reason I bought him an iPad 2. He's absolutely computer illiterate but had had no problem with this app. Some stories are read out loud in a computer voice which he really likes! GOOD JOB on this app!!!
When you first start the app it requests a user name and password. There is a box at the bottom telling you that you have to be registered to use the app. That box is not a button. If you don't have a user name and password and try to advance, you get an error dialog telling you what PHONE NUMBER to call for information.
I know it's fairly obvious the Times has barely heard if the web but that's ridiculous. There is no way to register via the app or even online. They give no indication of what the actual charges are to use this "free" app. You have to call and get pressured by a salesperson to subscribe. Yeah, no thanks.
This is a good app to avoid.
apple's rules make it very difficult on the subscription industry, so signing up is a pain, but the app itself is worth the effort. the reading experience is great and the whistles and bells all work beautifully. this is how i will read the "paper" from now on.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
