iOS App Reviews

  • Not up to NY Times standards

    By geeper49
    I have had this thing crash repeatedly. Today I was unable to even open the new app on my iPad mini. It has proven to be unstable and buggy, like somebody didn't do a first class job. Not what I would expect from the Times. I have gone back to the old app and I hope that someone does a major repair job before the old app goes down, or NYT is going to lose readers?
  • Latest iPad app does not work on iPad 3

    By DocPortal
    This new iPad app does not function on my iPad 3 running iOS 9.3.5. When I download it from the App Store I can get it to run for as long as I don't close it. But it is running from the App Store icon. When I actually attempt to open the app with its own icon on my iPad desktop it appears to try to open the app only to fail each time. Please do NOT discontinue the stand alone NY Times iPad app that works perfectly on my iPad. I like the format of the old app much better as well. I do not like the fact that each story begins with a huge photo that takes up the whole iPad screen. Photos should be smaller, with the option to enlarge them if so desired. Also it seems to be much slower at opening stories than my old app. Please either fix these problems or scrap this update until it can be made to function properly.
  • So glad I didn't delete the old app yet

    By Gener555
    The new app worked OK at first, although slowly. I didn't like how the photos dominated the screen and it seemed the sections were all jumbled. I much prefer the old app which is a good thing because now after the latest update the new app won't load on my oldish iPad at all. Unusable. Wretched.
  • New app a step backwards

    By chip50
    The NYT’s new iPad app is a great disappointment. Confusing to navigate and shows fewer articles.
  • Unacceptably slow

    By Sub-wayfarer
    I have to look at the NYT logo for 10 seconds every time I launch the app. Then some percentage of articles appear only as gray bars.
  • Keeps crashing on 9.3.5

    By NYT reader 579
    Please help. This app is unusable on my iPad running iOS 9.3.5.
  • Doesn't work with iOS 9.3.5

    By zzht31
    Plz fix
  • Unfortunate situation....waiting too long for a fix

    By MercerChow
    Prefer to read NYT on the iPad but the app simply does not work. Loads "T" logo and freezes every time. They should rush a fix for this but it does not seem to be a priority. Lucky to have the android app on my phone, otherwise could not see anything of what I am paying 100s of $$$ for.
  • Battery hog

    By perefalcon
    I see where several people are complaining about the new layout. It just takes getting used to for those used to the previous version. My problem, which others have also noticed, is how quickly the new version chews through the battery even when not using the app. The update to the New York Times is the only significant recent change on my iPad. The number of ads now included are at least an order of magnitude more than the previous version and many are animated. I suspect these animated ads, of which Best Buy is a particularly obnoxious example, are what I believe is using so much battery. When viewing the stories, which have an ad about every 2 paragraphs, I watched my battery charge decrease about 1% per minute. That's entirely too fast. The other item I miss is some indication on how long a story is so I can better judge if I have the time to read it or want to read the entire thing. Update 9-25-2017. Looks like the battery issue is pretty well solved. Now they need to work on the organization of the Top Stories-too cluttered with things that are not Top Stories such as opinions and most read.
  • Ugh

    By Voldemort345755
    What was a B- app is now D. Just awful. The Wall Street Journal is much more logical and like the print edition. The Times is more like a mad scientist’s awful algorithm come to drive you back to the print edition. They can and must do better.
