  • Please improve user interface

    By imsoDZ
    So frustrating. If I link to an article from top stories, when I return to the home page it always takes me to the top of the page, not to my last location. I’m tired of scrolling!
  • Best content...but ads have become overwhelming

    By Applykations
    Hate to say but the online experience is getting worse with every update. How sad since main content remains A+ Have you thought of offering different packages depending on a percentage of ads the reader will have to endure? I would pay for that. We all get you need to sell ads. But who reads them? Who clicks on them? I can assure you that one ad per paragraph is counterproductive. I don't read them...don't look at them....and automatically hate them.
  • Astonishingly slow

    By tmm212
    Pages often take 20-30 seconds to load, even on a fast connection. The website takes less than a second or two.
  • ads freeze app for NYC subway riders

    By F.s.g sister
    The NY Times app is great, except when you’re on the NYC subway and you lose internet coverage between stations, i.e., very often for New Yorkers! Scrolling through a story freezes as (presumably) the app is trying to load an ad without access to the internet. Totally unacceptable that the paper is wasting its subscribers valuable time as it pursues more ad dollars. At least use some of that ad revenue to hire developers who can figure this out. I now read the Washington Post on the subway, and maybe I’ll find time later to read a bit of the Times.
  • Can’t scroll

    By Super Peep
    Seriously, NYT? I subscribed last night because I wanted to enjoy intelligent articles, even if they are written with split infinitives and misplaced modifiers as journalism deteriorates throughly the English speaking world. I can’t even scroll through the first article. The screen freezes if I take my finger off the screen. Rebooting didn’t help. Argh!
  • Not accurate

    By RJM 52
    I downloaded the app and checked it out for a couple days was very disappointed it was missed leading half the story told plain and simple lies
  • Annoying ads ruin the reading experience

    By noname77
    I pay for a subscription, therefore I expect fewer ads than come with his app. It often shows the same ad over and over in a relatively short story. In short, it makes reading annoying and frustrating. Charge me more if you need to, but please give us an option to turn off the ads. NYT can do better.
  • Great content, bad app

    By naysayer61
    Is it merely a coincidence that the app’s performance has severely deteriorated as the ads it displays have become more prevalent, more animated, and more annoying? I think not. I am generally reading on my WiFi with a very good internet connection. I enabled the “preload content” option which hasn’t seem to do much of anything - Articles take longer and longer to load. and once they do they frequently “bounce around” on the screen ... seemingly due to some sort of refresh or reload. Large gaps are left on the page for who knows what purpose. Ads cover up content ... sometimes then popping into correct placement, sometimes not. NYT has also been publishing more multimedia articles. Not worth the effort. More often than not, I back out of them rather than wait. After having been a print subscriber for 25+ years, I switched to all digital when I moved earlier this year and home delivery was no longer possible. I’m no Luddite (worked in IT for 30+ years) but this is getting ridiculous.
  • Every release gets slower

    By Roofone
    With every update, the app gets slower and slower. Homepage refresh takes 10 seconds, loading a story takes 10 more seconds. Loading pictures for the story takes 10 more seconds. By the tine the content appears, I’ve forgotten what I was going to read.
  • Slow to load articles

    By JRCreader
    I've been a reader for 20 years and have published 40 letters to the editor. So, I'm a fan of the paper, even if they get pretentious sometimes (and definitely have an unhealthy obsession with our president, regardless of your views). However, most frustrating about the app is that articles, including the ones on the front page that are supposed to be auto-refreshed, simply don't load. Instead, you get the spinning wheel of death. And this is even when on great WiFi or LTE. Frustrating.
