App keeps trying and failing to load ads so that the content bounces around the screen constantly. It’s basically unusable
Obviously this comment is not related to the content, love NYT investigative reporting. Since about a week, the NYT app keeps crashing every time I start the application. This is an issue with the latest app update, installed about 10 days ago.
Unsure why the format was changed from swiping between sections, as the much less intuitive current layout causes me to go to the other sections less and less. Advertisements constantly cause all sorts of issues with the app, despite my having a high speed internet connection. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Advice the New York Times could have taken to heart.
After the last app update, my NYT app no longer works. Whatever they did “broke” the app.
The new NYT app has a terrible layout and shows far fewer stories on the screen than the previous app. The overly large photos and videos that download and starts playing are just annoying. I used to check the NYT app for breaking news and “front page” stories but now they have so few stories up front it isn’t useful. For now I’m sticking with the old app!
The old app, black w. white capital T, worked. This one is slow, the layout of stories is awkward and ugly, and it seems to freeze up. If the NYT wanted to discourage folks from reading it, they are succeeding. Please bring back the old app.
The NYT used to have a crisp, functional app, well suited to the high quality of the reporting. It is getting clunkier by the month - slow to load, now crashing. Weak compared The Guardian.
It was crashing at each attempt to open it. I had everything up to date and what solved the problem was an uninstall and reinstall. Works just fine now.
Hate all of the hunting around for articles. The previous app made it much easier to read. Now I have to hunt down the pieces I want to see. Please bring back the old layout.
Nov 2019. I have been using this app since it came out and have been a subscriber for decades. The app was never good (see the WSJ app or the Economist apps for good apps) due to having an always updating list of articles, no way to see them in a publication order, and having them push articles for days and sometimes even weeks according to their whim, leaving it impossible to just check for, you know, NEW news. Add to that so many articles are not downloaded automatically and pictures rarely available and require an Internet connection even when listed on the top stories page, the app is just plain bad. But the real killer that pushed me from 3 to 1 stars is that there is unstoppable video previews of articles for the last few days, despite a setting to disable auto play of videos. I personally never want video, animated ads, or anything moving unless I directly do it. It is extra terrible because despite the app (and the iPhone and Android phone versions too, both of which I have and use) being atrocious, the news is actually good, when and if you can find articles to read.
