I can’t believe this hasn’t been fixed yet it would be so easy. It’s a glaring bug that really destroys the usability of the app. Fix this ST!

Wonderful International, National and Local News

I love living in the Puget Sound area and Seattle Times keeps me current with the news.

Terrible accessibility and no web login as alternative

1
If you subscribe to the NYTimes or Washington Post you can use both their iPhone app and also log into their website on your computer. With the Seattle Times, I pay a subscription for the app but don’t get the entire paper, and they do not allow you to log in to their website either. If you call customer service they say third party apps don’t give you access. I am visually impaired and don’t always want to use Voiceover if I can jack up the fonts. Gee, you can’t do that either in the app nor does it listen to iPhone font preferences. And if I want to log into their website so I can read the same article on my laptop to blow up the fonts, forget it, can’t do that either because from customer service’s perspective you aren’t a subscriber. I’m done and unsubscribing. Terrible customer support.

Keeping up with WA State news

It’s a pleasure to hold an actual newspaper in my hands while drinking my morning coffee. The mix of local, State coverage as well as the national & international news and opinion columns are welcome. The family owned newspaper is so rare and should be a value worth supporting.

First thing I open in the morning, quality journalism is a little hard to find these days

Needs a search feature

I enjoy browsing The Times quickly on my phone but I wish it had a search feature to help me find specific information and articles.

Great service.

Forgot email and password and account #. Called for service and immediately solved. My only problem was they latched on to other email and sent notifications after notifications. Nothing on other email which my sign in. Apps easy to navigate and search.

Feels like a neglected stepchild

2
Really want to like this app but it feels like a neglected stepchild to the physical paper. Rather than embrace technology and improve the functionality of the app, Seattle Times starts stuck in the past, hoping day will come when Seattle residents will abandon their smartphones and tablets to embrace reading the printed paper front to back each day. Design hasn’t been updated for years, ability to share or print articles does appear to work, and information is poorly organized. Better just to view paper through its website.

Just an add-on for delivery subscribers?

3
Edited to add: I pay for my subscription through the app, but the app increasingly links to articles outside the app (on the website). So if I am reading in the app, I am taken to the website and told that I’ve exceeded my limit of free articles for the month. Fix this please! Bottom line: in Seattle 2020, your app shouldn’t be an afterthought or an add-on to your paper delivery service. It needs to showcase your quality journalism and draw in users who will never buy a paper copy of the Times. It is currently a shadow of what it could be. I am a paid subscriber through the app. I would like the app to do a better job of representing a full local newspaper experience. Currently the main page highlights a small list of articles - they aren’t sorted by section, and it’s unclear how those particular articles are selected. I often find out later about articles that would have interested me (but I didn’t see them on the app). Similarly, why can’t I read comments? In local politics, it’s sometimes interesting to see how the comments are trending. And you are the news source where I can find out about local events and controversies. But to read comments I have to leave the app. That’s silly - you are providing less content for paid subscribers than you provide on the free web, and you are missing an opportunity to connect with the people who actually pay to have an app just for the Seattle Times. These are just a couple of examples. Please consider treating your app as an independent source of readers and loyalty that could strengthen both your brand and your finances. This is a tech city now. Become a tech-savvy news source. Thank you.

Too slanted

2
As a moderate conservative, I have tried to be objective. However the constant drum beat from “journalists” and opinion writers against anything Trump has me canceling my subscription to the times... I tried.
