What's New in Version 2.1.1
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
A few quirks hamper a great app
NYT’s content is second to none, but that doesn’t mean their apps are perfect. This one delivers content in a way that feels much more mobile-native than the full NYTimes app. One major usability hinderance is that your scroll position bounces around while it’s downloading the latest news, so it’s not a great app if you just want a quick news fix. It also, inexplicably, prevents sharing articles via AirDrop (e.g. if you want to switch to reading on a desktop), as it shares a screenshot instead of a link. A very difficult design decision to understand, which to me costs a full star.
Love this app!
Last week did a search for best news apps and this was on a list. Since then, along with my local news app, it's the first thing I read in the morning, check during the day, and late at night. Top news, interesting stories, and often updated. Highly recommend.
For iPad or not?
I like the app, and I used to like to read it on my iPad as well as my iPhone (bigger screen). But lately is has been slow to load or even does not load at all on the iPad. I reported this to their tech support and they responded that they do not support the IPad. But in the iTunes
store it says that it does support the iPad. So which is true?
So fewer stars with the iPad trouble, even though I like the app and the concept.
