Ratings and Reviews
Simple, extremely well-curated, outstanding content
This is the app I spend the most time with, hands down. The content is top-notch: succinct, trustworthy, professional. It’s such a breath of fresh air compared to the sensationalism and shoddy reporting we’re exposed to on social media. I spend 1/2 to an hour every night reading through the Top Stories tab, then finish up with their one-minute crossword.
As for the app itself, I don’t understand all the 1-Star reviews; I’ve had zero problems with it, and just can’t fathom how one could rate an app ONE star because the app has ads. It’s a newspaper folks, they have to support themselves somehow right? I would actually rate this app higher if I could just based on the fact that their ads are relatively tasteful and not CPU or bandwidth-hogging, or full-screen takeovers. I’ve really enjoyed some of the multimedia stories like the long-scrolling, annotated video graphic of Greenland’s melting ice park. Really, really love this app
More unreadable with every update!
As NYT subscriber and early adopter of the NYT app, I’ve used many iterations of this app and the 2019 versions are NOT improvements. I’m giving the app two stars for offline access and the recent, excellent NYT Mag profile profile of Bill De Blasio and why the city hates him. Now onto the recent, bad updates! First, the mobile ad format functions like a pop-up that you can’t disable: the screen blacks out to load the ad before allowing you to exit the page. This format appears many times during a single session, across multiple news sections, and every time that you open the app. (Also this format seems to be used solely for “To Kill a Mockingbird” on Broadway?) This makes reading the app very inconvenient and annoying! Second, one of the latest updates eliminated the very convenient feature that allowed users to swipe between different news sections. For example, to move between three sections (like from NY to US to World) only required two swipes; to do the same now requires four taps (Back > Menu Page to choose section; repeat). In other words, it’s more convenient to enter a subway station with an MTA card than to move between sections in the NYT app. TL;DR the 2019 app updates suggest the NYT iOS team has been taking cues from editorial because reading the news is less accessible and more annoying than ever.
Millennial going for print
I have been a New York Times subscriber for digital and weekend print edition for almost 12 years now. I have always liked their news coverage,opinions, articles about everyday stuff that I could believe could be so interesting, Mini crossword, and almost everything they publish. But in the past few years the online version has become addictive and the way they seem to do it is by taping in the outrageous feeling and then suggests more articles like it. It’s very draining to feeling that way day in and day out. I can’t believe I come back to get more of it. I feel some articles have become to click-baity. That should not be the way to customer engagement and keeping them there longer.I don’t like that my attention is being used this way by a product that I pay for.
Weekend with the print edition is so much better no way going down a rabbit hole and can stay away from the comments. I feel I’m in more control of the time I spent reading print. But I guess print won’t last beyond a few more years. Sigh!
