Customer Reviews

A must for arts enthusiasts visiting NY

I adore this app: The arts listings are concise and up-to-the-minute, and it geolocates its excellent recommendations. I suggest "The Scoop" to all newcomers to New York, and tourists, especially museum and gallery goers, and families with kids.

Unfortunately, it's perpetually buggy and crashes often on launch. Deleting the app and reinstalling it fixed this for a period of time, but I've deleted and reinstalled it about 5 times now. Hope the NYT will debug it soon.

Love The Scoop!

I'm a heavy user and early adopter of apps seeking out cool stuff to do on frequent trips to nyc and The Scoop is my hands-down favorite. In the age of info-overload the excellent curation here had allowed us to discover so many cool things in the city. My favorite section is Only In NYC- if you could rotate in a few more picks there it would be much appreciated since that is a phenomenal list!

Great resource but crashes often

I keep downloading the app cause I appreciate the content and have never been disappointed in the recommendations, but it crashes constantly. Wish they would fix it.
