  • The new app is buggy

    By NickWithAName
    This is a review of the app and not of the LA times journalism, which is excellent. Even with a fast internet connection the app fails to load images of articles as you scroll down on the home page. Often when I tap on an article nothing happens. Then, after several seconds when I start scrolling again, the article opens. To go back from an article to the home page is unintuitive. If you just swipe right nothing happens. You have to scroll up for a ‘back’ button to appear. You can press that or swipe, but frequently nothing happens anyway. And if you swipe over the area of an ad, nothing happens. Sometimes when tapping an article the page starts swiping and then freezes half way so now half the screen is black. Often at the top of the home page the LA times logo overlaps the menu bar making it impossible to read or select. If these bugs and unintuitive behavior were fixed you would have a great app with excellent journalism.
  • eNewspaper view is outstanding

    By Automaguy
    The newly overhauled app is excellent and the eNewspaper view is outstanding. Being able to easily flip from cover to cover through the daily newspaper, click on articles that catch my interest, and see all the content is a real pleasure.
  • New app an improvement

    By bb1769
    EDIT August 2019: The new app (July 2019) is definitely an improvement over the old one. Most quirks in my earlier review have been fixed. One remaining issue is that after reading a story in detail mode, then returning to the main view mode, sometimes you cannot scroll to the bottom of the page.
  • Love the new upgrades.

    This app is so improved. It is easier to navigate, faster & friendlier. Thanks for the upgrade.
  • Gimpy-must be beta

    I’ve read LATimes for decades and have great appreciation for the paper. This ver of the app has trouble scrolling-requiring flipping pages and returning just to scroll.
  • Significantly improved!

    By KantEven
    As the newspaper of record for the western United States, the LA Times provides high quality reporting and analysis on major national and world news, as well as stories that the big NYC and DC news organizations overlook. This app has been significantly improved in 2019, so those stories are now easier to find and the reading environment is more enjoyable. The menu layout is simple and intuitive, the sections are updated frequently, and most (if not all) of the web content appears in the app. I withheld one star because the app is still missing a couple of keys features of its major competitors (NYT, WaPo, WSJ). One, you cannot customize the menu. This isn’t a big deal, because the menu layout is easy to navigate, but it it would be a nice feature for those of us who like to see certain sections up front. Two, the app is still missing a “Today’s Paper” section. All of the other major papers have a section in the app that lists the stories in the order they appear in the paper. This feature would be much easier and faster to navigate than an e-edition, especially on a small screen. Other than these two oversights, this is a great app and content.
  • A Great Leap Forward

    By zenate14
    I’m not usually one to write app reviews but the latest update for the LA Times app represents a game changing leap forward for this newspaper and its companion app. The ability to read news stories and interact with the daily e-newspaper is intuitive and easy. As a native Angelino I am very happy to finally support my local newspaper with pride.
  • Content good. Digital platform awful

    By Ltbesq
    Of all of the paid subscriptions I have LA Times is the most aggravating. It repeatedly refuses to recognize my paid subscription, esp. when using a link from social media or the web. Customer service is a joke. They just shrug and say, oh well, just log in. It won’t log in. Then it is “oh you but this through a third party.” I pay LAT with Apple pat. That is a third party provider now? Just dumb. Too bad, bc its a good paper. But I may have to stop subscribing if they can’t fix this problem ongoing for a year.
  • Recent update nearly unusable

    By Screamer tamer
    I love the la times. I’ve been reading it for nearly half a century. I prefer reading the enewspaper version rather than the “highlights.” Unfortunately, navigation is a pain. Although the tutorial tells me I can pinch to shrink/expand, in reality I can only expand (except on the pages view, where images remain tiny). I can’t get a “page fill” to scan my paper for articles. The default view means that I miss every article below the fold unless I pinch and hold each page after I swipe. Or, I have to scroll each page top to bottom after I swipe. It doesn’t remember my font size from article to article, either. I received a confirmation of my email complaint, but no improvement. Really, this is a five star newspaper, with a two star experience. The Los Angeles Daily News gets the app experience right, so I know this can be done. Please make this work.
  • Great revamp!

    Thanks for the great update to your app. I’ve enjoyed your content since subscribing, but the app was frustrating. Kudos. I’m sure having Julia Turner helped!
