Solid app, but room to improve

The playing of article-imbedded videos is a little clunky, and I’d love to have a “dark version” of the app, as reading back against white can be straining over time, given the amount of reading I do on your app! Otherwise, an enjoyable app and easy to use!

When will the maddening homepage bug be fixed?

The NYTimes’s first-class journalism, and reputation as digital innovators, is hugely damaged by the ongoing homepage bug. As I write, I have three animated ads (all the same) for Accenture, a house ad (‘The Truth is Worth It’ - I don’t need to be told. It’s why I subscribe!) and two pieces of editorial content: a guide to sustainable eating and 5 things to take on my next long-haul flight. That’s it. That’s all.

I have emailed the NYT complaints team twice now. The first time, towards the end of February, I was told it would be sorted out soon. Six weeks later and nothing.

I work for a major news website and the NY Times is the envy of those in my trade. But there is no question my employer would allow a front page bug that is so significant it effectively removes the news, to persist on half as long as this has. I dare you to sell the paper to the paying public, day after day, with the front page torn off.

The latest update has borked this app

The home screen on this app now shows me four NYT house ads (why? I've already subscribed!), two down-page stories and the crossword. There's literally no news on the front page of the NYT!

Once you've fixed this, have you thought about NOT changing the app for a while? If one of the most important things that the NYT does is to curate the news for its readers (because no one has the time to judge what matters from all the world's news everyday), and accessibility is aided by familiarity (to make it easy to find stuff), then change for change's sake is actually detrimental to your mission.

Focus on fixing bugs, reviewing the wisdom of showing ads (particularly house ads) to subscribers, and then build a set of baroque arguments with which to bamboozle change-obsessed execs into letting you leave the app alone.
