Customer Reviews

Great news app, but buggy at times

On a small screen I can get all the news of the print edition wherever I am, including in my bed at night or on an airplane or waiting for my next appt. (I use it exclusively on an iPhone.) Updates are incredibly fast. Options for text size are nice for older eyes. I like having some of the more popular articles appear for longer than one news cycle. Inclusion of "What you need to know..." at the lead of each update is helpful. "Saved articles" feature is very useful. I read 4 newspapers online. NYT app is the best. I notice that my reaction to the app is part how it functions as software but much more what the editors choose to fill it with.

News my way

I have had the NYT in an electronic format for years, long before I had a smart phone I would get it on my computer. I like getting the interactive information and the synopses allow me to be particular about which stories on the phone I will read of my monthly allotment. Given that, I have a subscription to the ipad/computer version and feel that when you buy an electronic package it should be for ALL your electronic devices so that is why the App doesn't get 5 stars.

Great app. Good articles, easy to use

NYT has excellent articles and journalism. The app is well organized and stories are easy to find. Stories have a good mix of text, pictures and info graphics. Unlike the website- the mobile app doesn't have reading limits! My go to news source.
