Customer Reviews

Full Screen Pop-Up Ads

I really enjoyed using this app until recently. The full screen ads that open when you click on an article have got to go. If this was a website, I would close it immediately. The fact that I'm paying keeps me in the app to read the article but it's no longer a pleasant experience... Ads between articles, ads inside article, and now ads when I click on an article. I can handle the first two, but I'll unsubscribe before I sit through another payment cycle of full screen pop ups.

Great Content but Ads dilute the experience

The content is great but the ads are getting really annoying. The density of ads seems to be increasing on a day to day basis with ads on every article read and now we are being subject to full screen pop-up ads. I pay 180$ a year for the online content and I think it's money well spent but if you are going to hammer me with this barrage of ads - stop charging me and make your money from ads. If you are charging for the content, provide an ads-free option to the users. Please be transparent - communicate your decisions and don't regress the reading experience.

Text size setting ignored in linked articles

I love reading the NY Times on my iphone 6+. Its very helpful for me to set the text size large enough to read. Unfortunately, when I follow links to other articles or when long quotes are embedded in an article, the text is too small. The setting is ignored in those situations. With a paid subscription, it's annoying not to be able to read all the content, especially the briefings.
