Customer Reviews

Very Slow on iPhone 4S.

This app is frustrating to use on my iPhone 4S. Even simple tasks like scrolling through an article or switching to landscape orientation are filled with lag and pauses where the interface becomes unresponsive. Often the app will misinterpret scrolling as a swipe to the left or right and try to load the next article. This usually freezes the entire app for about 10 seconds.

It especially has problems with the video player: trying to watch a video will slow the app to a halt or crash it. This is an old phone and I am used to things being slow but this app is especially bad; I often feel my phone heating up while I am using it. I keep it only for the breaking news notifications - otherwise I would just use the website.

Amazing app! One request

I use this app everyday and it is a wonderful experience.

My one request would be to be able to mark saved articles as read or unread on iOS platforms.

Also, why can some articles be saved for later from Notification Center while others cannot, when there doesn't seem to be a difference between the kind of article it is within the app? If it were just a news alert with no specific article at the time I would understand that, but that's not generally the case for what I'm referring to.

World Class Content Easy To Navigate

The NY Times app takes the world class reporting of the Times and brings it to my iPhone with great images and an easy to read format. Navigating the app is easy and clear to understand. I have drastically increased my readership thanks to the content and layout of the NY Times app! The 4 stars instead of 5 is that I have to log out and log back in to the app each day for it to recognize my academic pass credentials; it works as expected if I do that, but a nuisance.
