Needs more work
I love, love, love the Times, but their enewspaper app is lacking after many years of updates and “enhancements.” I have complained to subscriber services that it started not working right weeks ago. I missed a few issues until I figured out to work around the paper not loading. I do not want the dead tree version, so I depend on the e-version. I was able to go back and read the missed issues, but 3-day old newspapers aren’t real newsy in today’s news cycle.
Hope it gets a real rebuild, and not just a new logo page that leads to a blank screen.
I receive a daily paper copy of the Times but someone else in the family monopolizes that, so I use the digital addition - this app. I love it. Having used it for over a year, I believe I now prefer the digital edition to the paper copy. One advantage is that I occasionally I want to go back and find an article from a prior edition, and I can. If I only had paper copies, the paper copy would have been thrown out.
Yes there are some digital errors in the content, but those are easily overlooked in favor of the great convenience. I can’t live without it.
Worst App I’ve ever used
And it probably should be removed from the App Store for false advertising. The “App Support” link in the App Store goes nowhere - it’s dead. There is no support provided by the newspaper. It loads most (not all) of the time, but rarely will it display the page of the newspaper without being so blurry that’s illegible. This is despite an excellent connection (and includes everyone in our house accessing the paper).
We loved the idea of getting the paper digitally - the Tampa Bay Times ruined that idea with poor, poor execution.
