As a reading app you should me able to adjust font size, type. The biggest issue I have with this app is that as a paid subscriber I should not have the dynamic ad bar at the bottom of the page, it is extremely distracting.
Having great difficult opening current issue each morning on iPad. Keeps showing previous day issue. 😢 Can’t figure out what I am doing wrong, Is it only available after a certain time in the mornings? Help, please
Starting a few months ago with an update, all articles were cutting off the end of the article, mid-sentence, and I was unable to scroll any further the see the remainder of the article.
This app needs some serious work. To be specific: 1) On multiple occasions a story will load and display up t the embedded ad (more about this in comment 2). Sometimes the rest of the story will be available and sometimes not. 2) I am paying for this content so why all the ads? I understand the paper needs to make money but the number of ads is distracting. The subscription cost is not trivial. I don’t mind paying for content but this is ridiculous. These have been ongoing issues. I respect item one may be iPad specific but doubt it.
Connections to print replica are poor and frequently break...with messages such as connection failed, can.’t connect now, sign in again when none of other apps have an issue.
No search feature? Also, aren’t recent, top and trending pretty darn similar?
Why is there not a search bar on the app? There’s one on the website. This is a newspaper, so you should be able to search for a particular story. Ugh !!
The Times app does allow you to read news. But it lacks some features of other news apps. •lacks the ability to direct clicks to Times stories that are emailed to the app rather than a web page •lacks the ability to mark stories to a “read later” or favorite queue. I have the Times email me top stories. When I click the story, it sends me to a web page even though the app is installed. The app should allow me to designate in a setting whether I want to read stories I click on the web or the app. And if I designate the app, then it should automatically route my click to launch the app and open the story. It also desperately needs the ability to mark a story for reading later. Compare Apple’s News app. When apple news sends me a notification of a story I’m interested in, directly from the notification I can mark a story to be read later if I do not immediately have time. This app does not do that. Also, when in a story, I should be able to favorite it and/or add it to a list of stories to read later. If they add these two features, as a subscriber, I would be eternally grateful and able to give a 5-star rating.
Coming from the Windows Phone version, I find the iOS version much easier to use. I have been a digital subscriber for years, and easily recommend this app to everyone in Washington State to get the local angle and avoid the nationalization of the news - have a balanced diet!
I do read the ST every day. But there are three issues. 1. Font size is very small and cannot be increased. This may not be a problem for younger readers. 2. Cannot find sports and business details such as box scores and stock prices. 3. Many stories are present for a long time. Clear them out so that today’s news stands out.
