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.

Small step forward and big steps backward

Super S NYC

I have been a fan of the New York Times since high school. While the content is still among the best in the media, their app still has notable flaws.
First song them is this version no longer software to include all of the content from the print paper. For example, I read the Sports section every day. I have not seen an sticker with college football results in weeks; other than the local teams, I almost never see baseball game recaps. This guess for other sections as well. Given that they do not need to spend money to produce each digital copy like they do for the dead tree version, this is very disappointing.
While this version is prettier and more stable, the navigation is notably worse than the previous app. Before, the app presented the next two or three unread series at the end of each article. Now, it only lets you swipe to the next or previous article (read or not) in the section. The only way to choose a different article is to go back to the section.
And, it would be nice to be able to mark an article as read or unread from the section list.

The Times...a Changin'...for the worse


Funny how a media organization like the NYT, which should be improving our access to News and the discussion with fellow readers, has made it more difficult with its fall 2017 update for iPad. They've junked-up the UI with big photos, perhaps trying to appeal to a less engaged reader, or merely one that isn't as interested in reading the news as they are about quickly seeing it. Tip for you NYT: make the photos accessible for those who want to see, but don't clutter or fill up up space for those of us who want to read. Also, the new app has removed the ability for us to occasionally comment on topics. Seven years ago I was a fan (below praise), now, I'm looking for alternatives.

Best News App - And It's Free! (7 yrs ago)
This is an awesome app. It's fast (over my 2G iPhone), and appears to link to full articles. There is a considerable amount of content, and you can access it all even in airplane mode, after you've fired up the app at the airport gate. I've seen Washington Post and CNN apps that cost a fee, and the NYT app for free blows them both away.
