Customer Reviews

Please don't d/c the old iPad app!

So appreciate the dedicated journalism and excellent writing of the Times, especially now. Thanks as always to all.

Regarding the new iPad NYTimes app - it's excellent, but only works on our family's newest iPad that runs iOS 10.3.3. On the iPad 3 (iOS 9.3.5) the new Times app instantly crashes - won't even open beyond a large "T". The old Times app still works on the "3", but carries the ominous banner-style announcement that it's to be discontinued - yikes. Inevitably, there will be a new iPhone NYTimes app that won't work on our iPhone 4S, just as we long ago lost the NYTimes on our "vintage" iPod that runs 6.1.6, and now serves as an excellent dictionary. Help us get a little longer life out of our devices, won't you?

(FYI - there are some apps, e.g. Wunderground's weather app, which don't update to newer versions on old devices - the old version just still works, and the App Store somehow knows that the new version isn't even to be offered. And then there's the NY Post for iPhone, a simple app that works on even the oldest phone or pod. But the Post is not the Times - you're needed, and not just by us.)

Confusing at Best

I usually read The Paper in hard copy. But when traveling I try using the app. What a disAPPointment! It is very difficult to identify which articles are from today's paper and which come from recent days. As newspaper people they should understand that yesterday's paper is, well, from yesterday. I wish they would try out some apps from German newspapers, or, another pretty good example, that of the Economist. All these apps have a mode where one gets the current print edition, just in an easy to access version for the phone. My favorite app is that of Die Zeit, an excellent German weekly. They even offer a PDF version of the print edition for the iPad that allows turning over pages like in the hard copy and one can use the usual zoom gestures to read the articles. Fantastic! But their phone version is also excellent. It essentially allows to flip through the print edition by simply swiping left to turn pages and up to read through an could do that, too, NYT! Or do you need to get bought by Google first to shape up your online game?? OK, steam vented, let me also say that I love The Paper for its journalism and balanced coverage...keep up the good work!

Looks like the iPad-only app has been discontinued

The latest update (6.0.2) seems to have fixed the battery problem. My iPad no longer seems to run hot.

Revisions to my initial review:

As others reported, the app crashes a lot.

Also, off-line caching of articles is now unreliable. If you take the app on a plane and run it in airplane mode, it's not certain that you'll be able to read any given article.

The saved article list does not reliably sync between devices, or with the website.

Worst of all, the new app is now a battery hog. My 9.7" iPad Pro runs hot when I use the app, and the battery drains quickly.

This is unfortunate. Hopefully these problems will be corrected quickly.

Original review:

It looks like the iPad-only app has been discontinued, although it would be good if the NYT gave users of the old app guidance on this.

In any case, as a longtime user of the iPad app, I'm encouraged by the improvements here. Videos seem to render where they didn't in the old app. Also, displayed articles seem to respect their graphic layouts in a way that the old iPad app didn't.

One problem: My complete saved articles list didn't transfer -- the oldest articles were left out.

My main concern is the completeness of coverage. I had the impression that the old iPhone app left out a lot of articles. The latest app doesn't seem to have this problem, though.
