Customer Reviews

Great paper, app needs improvement

Search function is terrible: search “movie and review” and the top hits are not the most recent movie reviews, tho these are the most relevant hits. In fact, anything with the word “review” comes up, including articles about the Supreme Court. Does the app not know the meaning of the search term “and”?! Good grief! In fact, no movie reviews come up in that search. This should embarrass the app developer. A computer search in 2018 should function (at least as well as one performed in 1998-this app search fails that standard).
Relatedly: I should be able to find ALL NYTimes movie reviews in ONE place, listed either alphabetically or chronologically. Instead, I am lucky to find 2 or 3. There should be a section that is JUST the movie reviews-they have this in the online NYTimes so it should be here, too, especially if the search function can’t find movie reviews (again, embarrassing). (Searching “critics picks” brings up nothing relevant, whereas it should bring up all of the movie reviewers’ “picks”, which the Times actually calls “critics’ picks”)-good grief!.)
I am not writing a general review of the app bc this issue is what I am thinking about right now.

If you still have the old app on your iPad - KEEP IT. This one is terrible.

I have been a reader of the New York Times for a number of years. I had both print and digital subscriptions and up until now had been using the previous NY Times app for the iPad. Since getting a new iPad for Christmas and updating to the latest version of iOS I decided I would switch to the latest incarnation of the NY Times app for the iPad. Big mistake. This new app makes the Times almost unreadable. From the annoying layout to outright bugs (pictures don’t load in an article leaving large gray areas) to the annoying ad placement (ads after every paragraph in a story practically), this is a dud. I’m thinking of ditching my digital subscription and going back to print or just ditching the Times entirely. I can’t believe that this app had any QA testing ever done on it. It certainly never would have made it out the door where I used to work.

Crashes on startup

Update: crashes on startup. Worst so far.


For a few weeks now I've noticed how if I'm using the app while listening to music on headphones, my music will suddenly stop. I tracked it down to some banner ad in the app which makes a brief burst of sound and then mutes itself, interrupting my phone's audio, causing the music to switch to pause (and requiring me to manually unpause my music app each time).

This was annoying enough but today I note other ads in the app which spontaneously open up as full page video without having been clicked, even without having been on screen!

As a paying NYT subscriber, I don't see why the app should contain ads at all, much less buggy, invasive ones that ruin the news reading experience. What's the point of adding a pay wall if you continue with the race to the bottom with advertisements?

Please consider either raising your subscription rates for an ad free version or banning video and audio ads (since you're clearly not able to ensure they are bug free).

In the meantime I'll use Flipboard , who also carry ads but avoid the bugs mentioned above.
