Customer Reviews

Terrible app, fraudulent billing!

The app is unreliable at storing articles for offline reading. You can’t count on it.
The app is loaded with ads, which does not bespeak an expensive subscription.
The writing is good, but not worth the money. There’s plenty of good, free news out there.

What’s worse is their consumer fraud, which I have passed on to my state Attorney General’s office, who has agreed to investigate.

I called to cancel the subscription, have proof of the call, was told it was cancelled, yet the New York Times continued to bill me for 10 months.

They refused to refund anything, then grudgingly offered to refund only 3 months! Unacceptable! My credit card is disputing all the charges, given phone-records of my call to cancel, and NYT’s admission that I called to cancel. My state Attorney General’s office is investigating. I gave NYT a chance to make it right before filing a fraud complaint, but they refused.

Only a fool would buy a subscription from this company!

(Admittedly, I should have noticed sooner, but also had a student subscription, so didn’t notice that the full-price one didn’t cancel.)

ONE & ONLY newspaper to read

We have moved across the country seeking greener pastures but as one scenery and environs changes, the only constant in our family other than the love and kinship we share in our lives together that we always take with us would be both the digital and newsprint editions of The New York Times. Kudos and more power to the publishers, editors & all the staff of the New York Times.

This is what a newspaper app should be

The content is great, with a lot of in-depth reporting. Navigation is easy, just scroll down through the sections, expanding to see more articles in each section. I can arrange the sections in my preferred order, and remove sections I don’t care about. And I can easily save articles that look interesting to me to read later.
