Customer Reviews

Slow decline to adware

Several versions back this application was exactly what was needed for a paying subscriber: the best content, good layout, no clutter, no ads. With the last few renditions, the app has become and more ad focused. First, there were picture ads placed on the side of the articles & you could kind of ignore them. With this version, they are placed squares in the center of the text column, with no way to ignore them as you must scroll down through them to continue reading the article. To say the least, this break in the flow of reading is terrifically annoying! NY Times - I will happily pay you extra $$ for a non-ad version of this app!! This is the third or fourth review of this app I've written over the last couple of years, and sadly each one has been more negative than the last.

Current version crashes on opening

I haven't been able to access the app for days now. It crashes every time, seconds after opening. It appears to display new content as the days go by, but won't stay open. I have tried rebooting my phone. I'm a digital subscriber and this is the chief way I read the times...need it back! I'm on an iPhone 5S if that's helpful.

Update-the instructions on the app support web page say to delete the app, reboot your phone, and reinstall. That did the trick for me, but it's rare that I have to do that for other app's updates, so I'm not thrilled but I am back in business. Give it a shot if you're having trouble, too.

Lives up to a high standard.

I have been reading the NYT for a long time and was skeptical about their app satisfying my expectation of quality.
Well they did, it's relatively stable, crashes are few. The ease of interaction is excellent, strong searching, good multimedia support, excellent click through opportunities.
I get the paper delivered on the weekend and service is abysmal but I like the tactile experience.
Their own app is making me consider canceling my subscription.
In this world of instant information and questionable reliability the NYT app stands out, no one should expect less from their news source.
