Please fix rating system!

Updated 30 Nov 2017 ***Hallelujah, they changed their rating system back to the old version. The stars are back and the app is again 5 stars!

I use the app daily. Recently, NYT changed it so that now we can’t see how recipes are rated! For example, I would sometimes gravitate to recipes that were 4 or 5 stars since they gave the impression that they were good, and tried and true. Now it’s been replaced with you ‘Rate’ the recipe which is not as helpful - aside from the comments. The lack of transparency of how other cooks are rating their recipes is a huge loss. Please bring back your old rating system!

Wonderful enhancement to Web experience

Paid apps often have the uneven ratings distribution you see here- lots of 4- and 5- star ratings for the app itself, 1-star from people who didn't understand or like the pricing. Judge the cost/value for yourself, knowing that use of this app is included with a times digital sub and ties in beautifully with that experience.

The app is lovely, recipes easy to find and use, and for me the editorial quality is perfect. My favorite food writers are here. I'm always inspired by the suggestions. If I don't know what to cook I can always turn to my recipe box.

Excellent recipes, captures recipes on other sites as well

This app is free with a NYT subscription, which I read avidly. The recipes are included in a food column that gives background and context. I often tweak a recipe or use it to verify I'm on the right track with my own ideas. Also it's quite handy for saving recipes from other sites.
