NYTimes App Thrusts Ads in your Face!

Despite the monthly fee for this app, the NYTimes company continues to interfere with one's ability to enjoy a good read by constantly finding annoying and intrusive ways to interfere. Their latest pop up ad not only suddenly interrupts your reading of an article with a FULL PAGE fashion spread but they also make it difficult to even remove the ad by placing the close X in the farthest most inaccessible corner of the screen. If this rude nonsense continues I am parting ways with NYTimes. There are other ways to receive news.

Still crashing repeatedly

I was hoping this update would fix it but after tapping a linked phrase in articles the app sends me back to the newsstand folder and forces me to reopen NYT, and not to the article I was reading. I have to go find it again, try to use the link embedded in the article again, only to have it crash again, and again... Why does this seem so hard? I pay for my subscription. I wish I had an app I could rely.

Slow. No upvoting. Ads everywhere.

There is no way to rate comments as in the mobile version of the website. Often, comments that exist on the web version won't even show.

The news update process is slow: ads load before content, which is not why I am paying $195/year. And the ads are very distracting. Finally, there is little hierarchy for news on the top page (on iPhone).

Shameful for the elite newspaper of the country.
