Two stars only because you *can* actually read the paper. That said, about 70% of the time I open the app it requires me to log in, and 100% of the time I tap on an article it takes me somewhere other than the start of that article. Usually it’s the bottom of the page, requiring me to scroll back up to the top. The same thing happens when I tap the “continued on page...” link. It will take me to that page, but it will be somewhere in the middle or the bottom of the page rather than at the start of where that article continues. Extremely frustrating...
I recently wiped my iPad clean and installed everything fresh (not restoring anything from a backup) and the app behavior hasn’t changed.
I like the replica format, but wish The Times would move to Press Reader instead of Olive as it’s a far superior app.
Never a great app, but truly awful now
Twice this week the morning paper wasn’t available online until later in the day -not sure how much later, but it still wasn’t there at 9 AM. Even though I am a long-time monthly subscriber, I am required to re-sign in at least once a week, often more. Today I experienced another of the common problems: the paper is available to a point (for my husband it was page 4, for me it was through the opinion page) and when you flip to the next page it says loading, but it never does load, even if you close and reopen the app. They may not be putting the resources into the mobile app to get people to go back to print, but frankly we are talking about cancelling our subscription totally. A morning paper provides yesterday’s news so we don’t get much value out of the paper anyway and these irritations from a lousy app are the last straw.
Wow...... You finally updated the app where the user can finally go back to past issues. Only took 2 long months to do so! I can't believe no one else said anything about it.
iOS 10 for some reason would only let the user navigate to old issues, but you couldn't go back to the present day edition, even a force quit wouldn't make it work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
