Customer Reviews

Great app, a few bugs

The fact the new York Times comes out every day, with its wide range of in-depth stores, is a small miracle. The app makes it easy to read. No ink-stained fingers, no wrestling with the paper to fold it down to a manageable size (although rail and bus commuters into N.Y.C. always amaze me with this skill, like origami experts, so the unfurled broadsheet doesn't steal others' personal space). But there are some glitches. Trying to select a word from the app's stories in order to look it up often doesn't work because the cursor skitters down the page. Also, when I leave an open story on my screen to come back to later, the app closes it and goes back to the overview page. Additionally, I often want to see the print version's front page but it isn't made available. That's a shame, for so many reasons. But the biggest one deals with the actual NYT content. The instances of misspellings, poor grammar usage and other writing problems keep growing greater. This makes it increasingly more frustrating to read. Still, I couldn't do without the paper, need the significantly lower subscription price of the digital version and am grateful for the app.

All in all I like it, but...

For the most part I like The NY Times app but there are some parts of it that leave. Me frustrated. For example, if I want to check the definition of a word, normally I would place my finger on the words and would have a box pop up with a selection of choices including define. With this app if you hold you finger down for more than a second the page scrolls down incredibly fast, ending up well down the page.

The other issue I have is that every time I click on a special feature article I have to log onto the NY Times site each time, despite already being logged in!

Other than those two issues I like the app. It's easy to navigate, fairly easy to customize and easy to email, post on face book, and save articles of interest.

Wish the print edition were available

It would be great if the NY Times app made its print edition available, as it is with the Washington Post. Seeing the stories the editors chose to put on the front page helps in navigating through so much info.
The quality of the Times in general? It has been disheartening to see it writing standards steadily slip for the last several years, but perhaps that just reflects our society as a whole. While the Times used to be a bulwark against superficial trends, it now seems to reflect and promote them.
Still the paper performs an important service which is why I continue to support it.
