My app stopped working. Won’t link to my print edition. Representatives of the Times Union told me over a week ago that it is internal on their end. Terrible. I am disappointed. I get paper delivery at two locations
Every time I try to login it tells me I have to link my subscription. I go through all the steps and link the subscription yet it still tells me I have no stories left. I close the app try again and it tells me I have to link the subscription again even though it shows me is having already linked the subscription. Really just a garbage app.
It annoys me so much that I still have to go to the TU site or other news sites to get the weather and school closings. Why isn’t there a tab for this on the app? That’s a really silly oversight. I have a subscription to TU and really wish I could use it for this too!
When I first saw the new app I liked the look of it. However I have discovered many shortcomings. These include loss of the crossword puzzle, lack of a search function, lack of detail in the obituaries and fewer news stories. I still like the look but there does not seem to be any interest by the TU in fixing the many deficiencies.
What happened! This was supposed to be an upgrade. Unusable. The news is jumbled and hard to navigate. And once I have read five articles, I get locked out. Need to call to be reset. Bring back the old App, please.
I recently subscribed to online access to the TU, but I didn’t like the website version of the newspaper. Too much clickbait, too many animated ads, too many junk ads. This app eliminates all the junk. And it’s as good as any of the top newspaper apps - NYT, WaPo. Well done.
I find this format too much like any other news app and not like my paper that I have enjoyed for decades. Old articles are always mixed with new. Just not what I want so I use it much less.
This is my second review following the new update- since this terrible change, I now get to sign in and link my paper subscription EVERY TIME I WANT TO READ ONLINE. Absolutely terrible, annoying, and a waste of time. What was wrong with the app prior to this edition?
I will no longer subscribe to the TU. This app is awful. The old one looked like a newspaper and was very easy to read. Now I might just as well go to the TU website. I read through the other reviews and agree with every one of them. You even eliminated the crossword puzzles. My 94 year old mother looked forward to doing them every day. I wish you would reinstate the old app.
This has ceased to be a newspaper, its simply news segments. There is no longer a feel for it being the Times Union. The prior version had the look and feel of a real newspaper. Hey, developers, look at the NY Daily News app and go back to your prior version!
