Really good, but could you guys add something more to it?

I like this app, I use its every single morning for digesting current events. But please, could you guys add a playback speed option in the media section of this app? Could you guys allow us to change the speed of the videos please to 2x? And could you guys also add that to the podcasts too? It would be a big help, as it would allow me to consume more, in a shorter time frame. My commute is not that long, and sometimes episodes from the LA times podcasts are longer than my driving to school or to work, meaning that miss out on some info. News is supposed to be brief, and to the point. If I wanted in depth analysis, then I’d read the whole articles.

Good but…

The app works fine but it was taking up 8 gigs on my iPad. How can that be? That’s enough space for 4 two hour movies! You’d be better off going to the website to view the e-newspaper. If space is a concern on your iPhone or iPad look at this app to see if it’s taking up a lot of space.

can't login and LA Times staff not helpful

I have digital subscription but cannot log into the LA Times app on my iOS devices (phone, tablets). I get the error message "Error This server not allowed to post messages criss origin". This has been going on for over a year (since certain iOS upgrade). I've contacted LA Times but they can't resolve it. The worst part is that they just stop responding to my emails rather than telling me they can't solve it.

Can’t Login

Stuck on “Need more information to continue” but then I can’t click continue.. I waited this out a few weeks in hopes it would get resolved but Still the same issue!! When trying to log in I continue to get this pop up message that I cannot get past.. I have tried using safari, chrome, mobile, desktop, mobile app - and the same thing happens. I tried logging in using apple, google, facebook... the same thing happens! It says "Almost There. Need a little more information from you" but nothing happens when I click continue (I tried this after opening the “terms and conditions” and “privacy policy” as well with same result). If I click the "x" to close it, it just keeps me logged out. I have an account, it recognizes I have one. I tried resetting my password, clearing cache, cookies and history on each browser. I know I am putting in right password because when I type in a random one it says “please enter a valid password”- so its prompting this with the valid email and password. I even purchased a subscription (even though I also get it on apple news plus) and I got the notification email for the subscription too.. I called the customer service and they said they put in a ticket.. this is ridiculous. Only happening with LA Times.

App is glitchy

Very often the e-version of the paper is completely non-functional. Very frustrating. I’ve highlighted this before to no avail.

Story alerts send you to Safari

It’s frustrating that story notifications send users to Safari rather than the app

Recently it crashes when I scroll. Never happened before. Hope they fix it.

Don’t Subscribe

I had a $7.99 unlimited digital subscription for years. Then it quit working. After a long time on the phone, (Oct. 14, today) with various Apple team experts, I finally was given a specialist who analysed the problem and got me “unsubscribed” from a non-existing subscription I was purchasing at $7.99 per month. I did not resubscribe at $15.99 per month.

News junkie says skip the LAT app

The L.A. Times has still not developed an iPad app. This is a (still mediocre) iPhone app made big. If, like me, you read your news on a landscape-oriented tablet, the presentation is absurd. The app was updated one week ago, so I downloaded it anew, but it’s the same. I read four newspapers all on my iPad — LAT, NYT, WaPo and WSJ — and this app is by far the worst one. I use a shortcut to the web site instead; not ideal but functional for the front-page stuff. But this app is so bad that I delete it from all my devices just so I don’t open it by mistake.
