  • Ok App, Needs Some Polish

    By Cyclist Edge
    The Times app does allow you to read news. But it lacks some features of other news apps. •lacks the ability to direct clicks to Times stories that are emailed to the app rather than a web page •lacks the ability to mark stories to a “read later” or favorite queue. I have the Times email me top stories. When I click the story, it sends me to a web page even though the app is installed. The app should allow me to designate in a setting whether I want to read stories I click on the web or the app. And if I designate the app, then it should automatically route my click to launch the app and open the story. It also desperately needs the ability to mark a story for reading later. Compare Apple’s News app. When apple news sends me a notification of a story I’m interested in, directly from the notification I can mark a story to be read later if I do not immediately have time. This app does not do that. Also, when in a story, I should be able to favorite it and/or add it to a list of stories to read later. If they add these two features, as a subscriber, I would be eternally grateful and able to give a 5-star rating.
  • Local news is important, app is much improved

    By Seattlest1
    Coming from the Windows Phone version, I find the iOS version much easier to use. I have been a digital subscriber for years, and easily recommend this app to everyone in Washington State to get the local angle and avoid the nationalization of the news - have a balanced diet!
  • Why no sports and business details?

    By xyz xyz123567
    I do read the ST every day. But there are three issues. 1. Font size is very small and cannot be increased. This may not be a problem for younger readers. 2. Cannot find sports and business details such as box scores and stock prices. 3. Many stories are present for a long time. Clear them out so that today’s news stands out.
  • Ads in App as a Paying Subscriber

    By ankdsw
    I pay Seattle Times for access to their content because I want to support local news. However, I plan to cancel as they are now placing ads in their iOS apps despite my subscriber status. If they want to move to an ad-based model, great. If they want to remain a subscriber based model, great. But I am not paying them monthly to still see ads / have my online activity tracked by Google.
  • Needs work

    By D wins
    No search function, missing key features, glitchy%. Needs work.
  • Learn from The NY Times

    Add a Today’s paper function, so I can avoid reading articles already read. Also, allow me to check off an article as read.
  • Great paper

    By ba-ba-ra
    Filled with great local news stories
  • LC

    By Hankslolo
    The paper is very good. We have both the print copy and the digital. My biggest complaint is that there is no online search button I can access to look up an article when on the digital. Seems ridiculous.
  • Always commentary

    By Sir David GM
    Very little unbiased reporting
  • Solid journalists, public benefit

    By AverageideviceOwner
    This local resource is a treasure like none other, journalists that could be working anywhere, but putting their skills to work in a city and region with many complicated and critical issues... from Boeing’s Max problem to Amazon’s world dominance to the throngs of homeless. Great combination of hard news and features, plus sports coverage and best of all, Danny Westneat.
