Customer Reviews

Once again...

Once again, I open my New York Times app to find an aesthetically pleasing and creative marriage of print journalism and mobile phone technology. Embedded within a story about the ruling on gay marriage by the US Supreme Court, is a little feature showing different people and how their ideas about gay marriage evolved. It isn't like a newspaper page; it isn't like a website; it is something altogether different that is so pleasing to listen to, look at, and then pass on to others. I have found the New York Times app to be hands-down more cutting-edge than any other app I use.

Now with even more ads! Generally good paper, solid app, but the ads must go!


We subscribe, paying monthly, and we still have to deal with all these adverts!! You have to be kidding me!

We're trying to support you all, but this is a slap in the face.

As others have pointed out, it's irritating and they take up too much room on the small screen. They are omnipresent--the banner ads are there even when reading a news article.



The problem has gotten worse. The stories are littered with ads; they are embedded inside the news articles; AND they have increased greatly in number! As you scroll through a story, you are confronted with ad, after ad.

Those of us who subscribe should NOT have to face ads--and it's especially bad faith to have increased their number!

Downgraded my rating...


Too many Top Stories

Keeps on crashing.
Have lived this app from day one. Way much than the iPad one which I barely use. But, the Top stories used to be 10-15 stories and now they are like 30!
It was so much better when it reflected the Front Page. I am sure it's better for the Times, click-wise, but definitely not for readers. Less in this case would be better, more meaningful.
All the rest is s good as ever. The Times is the best.
