What's New in Version 2.1.1
Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
LOVE this app! Has changed my reading habits.
I am reading the news online for the first time with this app. I love that it gives me a range of stories from multiple sites - culling for me. I read things I would never have searched for on my own. I read in locations I would never have read from my phone before. Layout is great. Rage of stories is great. I read before getting out of bed in the morning. Never thought I would want to read on my phone - still a newspaper ga. I will miss it sorely when it goes. I get the NYT app for free as a subscriber but now I will have to go to lots of sites (and probably won't) to get the full range. Huge bummer they are closing it.
A few quirks hamper a great app
NYT’s content is second to none, but that doesn’t mean their apps are perfect. This one delivers content in a way that feels much more mobile-native than the full NYTimes app. One major usability hinderance is that your scroll position bounces around while it’s downloading the latest news, so it’s not a great app if you just want a quick news fix. It also, inexplicably, prevents sharing articles via AirDrop (e.g. if you want to switch to reading on a desktop), as it shares a screenshot instead of a link. A very difficult design decision to understand, which to me costs a full star.
Good for saving time
I think this is the perfect news app for the iPhone, because it shows the major news stories plus a few other interesting ones, but doesn't have too many and doesn't have links to comments, so there's less temptation to waste time during the day.
