How difficult can it be to have adjustable font sizes? One in four complaints here is about font size being too small.
There is no way to increase text size in the body of articles. Text size on the main page will increase if you adjust it in the iPhone Accessibility settings, but the text in the actual articles remains small. Since this is now version 6.5, I don’t expect this will ever be fixed.
It’s impossible to cancel a seattletimes subscription online. They make you call their toll-number….shady business practices won’t get my dollars
For the most part I enjoy the ease of this app, and use it daily. What I can not wrap my head around is the lack of any way to search for content.
Apparently the subscription you buy through apple for 9.99 isnt full access. You cant access past articles with a search bar, and you cant access articles through an device other than your iphone app. I called the Seattle Times to Verify and they said even though Ive been paying 10$ a month for over a year that Im not considered a subscriber because I didnt buy it through them. Misleading and explains why Ive never been able to click through their email updates to read an article. Full digital sibscriptions should be purchased directly through the seattle times for 3.99/week
Seattle Times is one of my go to news sources, but the app keeps crashing randomly on the latest iOS builds. And it makes me lose my place in the app/article.
For the love of everything holy is there honestly no ability to search? C’mon, there must be, is it just squirreled away in some weirdly placed submenu? Tell me, please? Where’s the Search bar, or the little magnifying glass icon thingy. Where it it?? It’s untenable to not have one. Ring ring, Hello, it’s 2007 and they want their app back.
I am a paid subscriber and I check the app multiple times a day. Content wise, I am happy. Some articles are short but that’s fine. This app needs a search function - I can’t believe there isn’t one yet. My biggest complaint is half the articles just don’t open. Specially, any article on weather and climate change just doesn’t load. So what am I paying for? Half the content?
I can’t read articles in this app because the font is too small.
It cannot be this difficult to write an app that automatically yanks the full text of every posted article off a server and dumps it into the app. How many programmers are there in Seattle? Apparently the Times can hire none. No search. Incomplete content. Links open outside the app. Yesterday’s news today. No font size adjustment (for something whose readership certainly trends towards needing reading glasses). Come ON. Update: the late-to-never article posting has been fixed, but links still open outside the app. No good reason exists for a user to have to log in multiple times to read something referenced in a current article.
