Ratings and Reviews
Love the app, miss most popular
I am a product director on another large scale mobile app, and I love the NYT app. It’s visually appealing and thoughtful and I appreciate so many of the changes you guys have made throughout the past years. My only wish, is that you stop moving the “most popular” articles section. First it was a carousel (my favorite), then you limited it to a list view of only 4, then it was moved to a completely different part of your navigation and I had to search for it, and now it’s gone. I can’t find it. I enjoy seeing what’s most read for several reasons and am bummed it’s gone. If I could make one request, please bring this back to your timeline.
An additional comment - I find your newer navigation confusing. You’ve essentially moved the whole navigation under “browse”, not an immediately obvious title for this. And “for you” is not relevant to me, what I read, or what I do. I literally play spelling bee every, single, day and hate that I have to scroll all the way to the bottom of timeline (while it’s updating which pushes me up the timeline, to only have to scroll down more) to get to it. If “for you” was really stuff I use, it should have spelling bee but it doesn’t.
This is the only app review I’ve ever written, i promise. And I’m writing it more because I love the content and the app but wish these few things could change. Leaving feedback because I’m hoping it’s helpful!
This App Desperately Needs a Night Mode Display Option
I love the NYT, so this mediocre rating is simply due to the usability/customizability of the app. There is no night mode, which just feels a little behind the times in terms of the various display options that have now become standard in most phone & tablet apps.
I also personally wish there was slightly more customizability in terms of being able to block or hide certain categories of articles from appearing. For example, although we can choose what subjects we are interested in, which will then show up in the “For You” section, I would also love the option of telling the app what NOT to show me when scrolling through the main feed. For me specifically, I don’t like reading Opinion pieces and will never open them, so it’d be great for me in terms of usability if I could just have the app “hide” those when I’m scrolling through (or hide the entire Opinion section). Other people may never read the Entertainment section, or the sports section, etc., so perhaps they’d like to be able to scroll through the main “Today” section without seeing those. It would just be a nice, extra option that could continue to help shape the content to what each reader enjoys the most.
Best reporting, worst app
Another update: Please stop the app updates. Every time the app is updated it makes it worse. Every single update makes it a worse reading experience. I do not want to scroll through the muck in the sections tab to get to the content I want to read. The junk at the top of the sections page is bulky and cumbersome and time consuming. I want to be able to group the sections in order that I read them as I used to be able to rather than searching through all the irrelevant sections. Also the articles take a long time to load and the entire page gets stuck multiple times as I get through content. Readership has dropped and you are turning off electronic subscribers with this meddling.
Update: your app is crap and not worthy of the world-class NYT name. Every version is as bad or worse than the previous one. It freezes all the time. It is slow to load. It drops saved articles all the time. It never syncs between devices. Get your act together. Fire the app team and start over.
The content is the best news source I consume. The app is the worst I use. It freezes constantly. It skips and jumps and is slow to load. The saved for later articles don’t sync between devices. Every update loses saved content. I resisted the most recent update for a long time. Now I’m sorry I did it. This is the slowest and freeziest version yet. Get it together - keep the newsroom staff and dump the app developers.
