Latest update breaks stuff again

The New York Times for iPad app has been difficult to like since its inception. It’s chock full of bugs and has never really worked well. The latest update breaks zoom on photos. If you open an article and click on a picture, you used to be able to pinch-zoom the picture. Now it restricts what part of the picture you can view in the zoom—you can’t scroll around. Nor can you reliably zoom in on the part you want to look more closely at as the restricted zoom alone knows what it will show you. Lousy app, but the only way I can get the NYT, so I have to live with it. I hope and pray someone builds a competing app because it’s clear the NYT folks have no idea how to do it.

Needs "Today's Paper"!

"Today's Paper" option is a must! The format of articles seems all but arbitrary and when you go to different categories, inevitably the same articles pop up again and again. It's impossible to read with ease.

The online site has option for today's paper view and is extremely clear, and in order of how it's presented in the actual paper - section by section. So, instead of reading on the app as I should be able to, I am forced to go to the site and read in order there.

If NYT is trying to capitalize on readers that are transitioning to digital, why is it so hard to read like I would a hard copy?

let me out of this cage!

Generally good with two annoying things.
First, it gives the current time for "latest update" even if it fails to update.
Second and more importantly, there is a built in browser with no share option nor "open in safari". It's all the rage these days to bundle a browser so you don't stray too far from the app, but this will likely backfire with frustrated users leaving more permanently. Release me to Safari!
