Google Play Reviews

  1. kevin morgan-avatar

    Like many others, I find the notifications feature almost completely useless. About one time out of twenty, clicking on the notification actually brings me to the story mentioned in the notification - otherwise it sends me to the homepage for the app, and I have literally no way to guess where in the site that story might be buried. About two-thirds of the time, I can *eventually* find the story, after a lot of digging, but a significant portion of the notifications are just "ghosts" apparently - there may or may not be a story there, somewhere, but I can't find it. And notifications are one of the *primary* reasons I want the app - otherwise, I can access the main page and scroll through stories much more efficiently on my laptop. At a minimum, a notification ought to contain some sort of perma-link back to the story that triggered the notification, one that won't "break" simply because a newer story - even an unrelated one - doesn't disrupt the link. A consistently functional notification system would garner at least 4, probably 5 stars. As it is, 3 at best. ETA (March 24, 2020): Months later, and still no solution for this persistent and ongoing problem. NYT, I know you're swamped but your programmers shouldn't be. FIX this.

  2. David Fleiss-avatar

    nytimes latest trump news Garbage app that's painful to use and keeps getting worse. It freezes several times while I try to read an article. Sometimes it unfreezes, other times I have to force the app to stop. When I sent an e-mail message to the developers, I got a polite automated response. The Old Gray Lady is dying, and nobody at the Times seems to give a damn.

  3. Kirsten Unicornz-avatar

    Kirsten Unicornz


    This app logs me out everytime I close it (sometimes even while I'm using it). It's hard to navigate and honestly not worth having if you have a subscription and can just get the same content online without all the hassle. It seems like an easy enough thing to fix, and you would think a company of this size would have the means to just fix it

  4. PatchesOHoolahan777-avatar



    About 75% of the time, clicking on a notification will only bring you to the homepage, not the specific story referenced in the notification. Very often that story is nowhere near the homepage, so you're left clumsily searching for it until you inevitably decide to just Google the event and read about it from a different source. If they could fix that, the app would be fine. Browsing stories looking for nothing in particular works well, but the notification system is absolutely broken.

  5. Frannie Monasterio-avatar

    App is a good start but has room for improvement. I love when scrolling thru is interactive with the the content; its a nice touch. Wishlist: (1) morning brief should be available at the top of the page in the morning hours, and similarly the evening brief in the evening hours. (2) i want to pick what news i get notifications for (ex: turn off stocks, sports). (3) "for you" tab should let me pick categories the first time/for set up, but then just show me articles from those selections.

  6. Kate Marie-avatar

    What is the point of notifying me about an article only to click the notification and not be brought to that article? Every single notification about an article brings me to the home page and cant find the article it mentioned. This app absolutely sucks and needs alot of work. Turned off all notifications because it's just pissing me off. Not what I expected from something I PAY FOR!

  7. Dave Scobie-avatar

    Update 27 Mar '20 - funny 'tech' section no load 26 Mar. '20 - still buggy & filled w/loading problems. Can't trust will work when want to read. Clear NYT isn't focused nor wants to fix many long known problems. Jan. 2020 - App slow to load. Hangs. App refuses to open 1-in-5 articles. Have set to download artickes and still it doesn't. Will not refresh feed nor load 2/3rd of an article's pictures. Ads in app cause slowdowns in scrolling and crashes. Howcan a media company not get this right?!

  8. Richard Rice-avatar

    Great organization, but the notifications do not link to the referenced article. In fact, many of the notification topics can't even be found via search in the app (perhaps too soon to be indexed?). Please do what others do, like wapo, and provide a section of recently received notifications in the app.

  9. Nick Willard-avatar

    Downloaded the app and compared to my girlfriend's UI... Completely different. Very confused about why we have different interfaces. Mine sucks- it's almost to the point of one of those over simplified newsboards. Couldn't find the search bar, sections aren't easily navigable (no side bar), poorly designed. Let me choose my interface!

  10. Karl Okamoto-avatar

    Although the NYT Android app works as a worthy "Latest News" substitute (albeit not quite the same) of the website, one cannot say the same about the website's "Today's Front Page" screens, which are still not part of the Android. I'll revise my stars upward if they change this situation.

  11. Scott Boeckmann-avatar

    Scott Boeckmann


    Overall, a good app. However, please have the app open the correct story when I click on a notification on my phone. It seems to just take me to a random article and I have to the search for the actual article I wanted.

  12. Tobias Brown-Heft-avatar

    Tobias Brown-Heft


    There content is top notch. The app is incredibly power hungry, devouring 2% power per minute sometimes, while just reading and scrolling an article. Please fix your inefficient code!

  13. Jeff Magill-avatar

    I would rate it higher if clicking on a notification opened the actual article it referred to and it searching for it was easier. I waste my time searching for it only to give up.

  14. Jessica Day-avatar

    My most used app. Even before the recent covid19 pandemic I have loved using this app. Not glitchy, great stories, and a wide variety of stories. Thank you New York Times for a great news app!

  15. Jerry Murtanto-avatar

    The app sucks. I have subscribed to the basic service using the phone credit but still cannot access it. After opening some articles, I was notified that I had reached the amount of articles I could read and later reminded to subscribe again to enjoy the basic service. What?! To make the case worse, I cannot get refunded as well. I love the NYT, but its app is simply unreliable. I'm terribly discouraged from attempting another purchase. The same thing might happen again.

  16. Caleb Wolff-avatar

    As a paid service, it's lack-luster in a few key ways. For starters, if you're going to suggest an article in my notification bar, the application should open to the article you suggested when I click on the notification. Secondarily, the fact to opinion ratio of these articles prompts me to believe the New York Times is info-tainment profitting primarily from subjective takes on abstracted concepts rather than providing "the news." Lastly, we should have the ability to "pin" live updates.

  17. Avery Katz-avatar

    All of a sudden, horizontal swipe no longer works to move between stories, eliminating main value of app. What happened? Might as well use browser instead.

  18. Chuck Stemke-avatar

    Love NYT reporting and Opinion, but this app crashes constantly! Maybe especially in the morning? Freezes up, won't scroll, screen goes black. Tried adjusting all the settings. I do use a VPN and disable my location - as their editorial lage suggests we all do - so maybe this contributes to ads crashing the app? Don't know. Android user; this wasn't a problem on my old iPhone.

  19. Saint Jude-avatar

    Notifications do not work. Click on one and it takes you to a different article. Examine every article available, and the one they notified you about simply isn't available. None of the games with properly anymore. Vertex shuts down. Spelling Bee rockets off a string of letters you didn't even touch and has to be manually restarted. The crosswords don't refresh properly. The acrostic clues are truncated. Sad.

  20. Bill Stewart-avatar

    Great news source - clunky app. When you get a notification and click on it, instead of going to the story, it goes to the top of the home page.

  21. E E-avatar

    Love the nyt, but terrible app. Shows the same headlines over and over, so I'm missing tons of content. And like everyone else is complaining about, the notifications don't always lead you to the article, and then it can be impossible to find it. So frustrating! I can't believe they haven't fixed these problems by now. I'm still a subscriber but I actually used another news app to scan the nyt headlines and access articles now.

  22. Michael Czarny-avatar

    Giant step backwards - In my older version, I was able to "select - check" sections of the NYT I had displayed across the top of my home page, much as what still appears on the NYT home page web version. I could "check" ~6 topics which would appear on my home screen app as "quick select buttons. I could quickly go to that section and scan the stories I wished to delve into.The newer version has removed this feature and nadded topics to follow. GIANT STEP BACKWARDS ! I get a mishmash. SLOW !!

  23. Anne Peng-avatar

    Content is good, but the app is infuriating. If I tap on a push notif, it just opens the app. It doesn't link me directly to the article. Which means I have to search for the article manually if I want to read it. Really really annoying. To top it off, the search function is atrocious. It yields irrelevant articles. You have to type the exact words, which is difficult because the notifs are usually paraphrases of the headlines. 🤦

  24. Chris Gamboa-avatar

    App was exceptional for the last couple years on my Pixel 2, content still is. The updated interface change that rolled out in Nov 2019 has slowed content loading to a crawl and I'm now considering canceling my subscription if it isn't resolved since my phone is where I access the news. Error notification helpful, but no follow-up and haven't heard about efforts to resolve. I have storage space, have cleared the cache, and am on fast internet connections.

  25. Mark Schott-avatar

    The app experience is nice. However, why does it use so much background data? 15 days into my monthly billing cycle it's used 400MB of background data! For any app and especially a news app this is ridiculous. This is a problem for me since I don't have an unlimited plan. For comparison the WSJ app has used 6MB of background data in the same timespan. I've turned off background data on the app for now so I hope it doesn't adversely affect the experience.

  26. Sheri Edmondson-avatar

    Sheri Edmondson


    Frustrating notification experience. I'm close to dropping my New York times subscription and switching to The Washington Post. The issue with the notifications has been going on for quite some time and still hasn't been corrected. I will click on an interesting article notification but am then taken to the wrong article in the app. This drives me nuts!

  27. Eric Williams-avatar

    Still blocked by paywall. I subscribed to an intro rate in the browser, link to my Gmail account, it shows up under my subscriptions, but I'm still blocked by the paywall. Doing a great job of confirming my avoidance of news-related subscriptiona there, NYT.... Submitted a help request via the App, will update this if it is fixed. **Update 1/15/20** Support contacted me, said that they've been having other users see the same issues. Their suggestion didn't work, still blocked. Get a refund.

  28. Kelly Campbell-avatar

    I had to reinstall the app to get past the paywall AFTER I paid for a subscription. The path to subscription from the app is poor UX. I have to go to my account settings which takes me to a browser (chrome in my case). Then when I try to purchase a subscription I get bounced back to the app, where I'm asked to login (again) and logging in via Google DOES NOT WORK here. There is some sort of authentication error for this particular flow. Very frustrating considering I'm trying to GIVE YOU $$$

  29. Carlos Hidalgo-avatar

    I've been reading the Times as long as i can remember.. The app is soo frustrating though. I'll get notifications for articles that sound incredibly interesting. Nine times out of ten, I'll tap the notification and be led to a completely different article. This is my only issue with the app. But in my opinion it is a serious flaw.

  30. Bernard Lee-avatar

    Like many reviews here, article and image loading have serious, consistent problems. I think it's related to Google Play - tracking wake up path links, which I turn off on my rooted device. But I haven't experienced this level of consistent app failure as I've had over the past many months. Note to the developers; Stop focusing on tracking our data and instead focus on making a functional app.

  31. Lila Klopfenstein-avatar

    Lila Klopfenstein


    Love the reporting...the app is terrible. It doesn't work well on my Samsung Note9. All my notifications come in at once. Usually 20-40 notifications at once. I can't click on articles individually from my notifications. I also can't seem to find a place to search names of articles. Please make it better. I am a paying subscriber.

  32. Damien de Pyle-avatar

    Good, but where's the widget? Most news apps have widgets that will give you the news headlines on your home screen without having to open the app. Furthermore, these apps are free. While the NYT is a free app, you have to subscribe to get unlimited articles. As a subscriber, I expect to be able to get what I can in a free app on a subscription-based app and more. They had a widget but removed it without explaining why. I'll stop my subscription unless they bring back the widget. It's stupid.

  33. Roy Ready-avatar

    I like the non-opinion politics articles and that's about it. I had to install this app on my phone because the mobile web address won't recognize my account. I pay a monthly subscription but I see as many ads as I would on a free news site. There is no search bar or any way of bookmarking stories.

  34. James W-avatar

    I am a NYT subscriber. When I click on news links in Facebook it takes me to a blank page in the app. When I click on news articles in Google it takes me to a blank page in the app. I can only really read the news if I go directly through the app. Great articles and reporting. Wish I could say the same about their IT department

  35. Brian Vollick-avatar

    Relatively easy to move from story to story, but I frequently receive notifications for new stories where, if I click on the notification, I am not taken to the story but rather to a front page. It's almost as if news updates we're being pushed to notifications but we're not being pushed to the app itself.

  36. Ryan Meyer-avatar

    When sending push notification on an android device it won't take you to the article, just the default homepage.

  37. Murray Levi-avatar

    Too many ads for a subscription app. There are so many, and they are all so distracting - movement, color changes, videos - it's impossible to Simply read the news without mistakenly clicking on an ad while trying to scroll only to find yourself launched into some hideous offer you have no interest in. I frequently consider discontinuing my subscription because of the ads. Finally, the read offline option is spotty at best because the app pauses, times out, and crashes if it can't DL ads and pho

  38. Bill Cappuccio-avatar

    I'm a NY Times subscriber and used to love this app. But in my opinion both it and the NYT website have gotten progressively worse over the last 6 months. I'm particularly disappointed that they've recently eliminated the bookmark function that allowed saving an article for later reading without having to open it.

  39. Mark Perkins-avatar

    I tried to submit app feedback through the app but it wouldn't let me. So I guess my complaints will now be public which could have been avoided. Double notifications for the same article happen often. Even more often is two different articles I get notifications for will change when I open them. If I get a trump notice and a sports notice, clicking one will often lead to the other instead. Love the app and the nyt but for how much money you have, fix your consistent bugs.

  40. Justin Kirkwood-avatar

    Justin Kirkwood


    The app notifications were bit much, annoying me to the point of reminding me I should cancel the subscription. Be warned before you subscribe - they force you to cancel by phone, text, or chat. Tried text first. Got several bot apologies about the wait time. Literally 18 hours later a rep responded. Abandoned that and switched to Chat-based cancel. That only took about five minutes, but I had to spend some energy saying "YES I'M SURE PLEASE CANCEL NOW" to a rep whose been trained to hard-sell me into staying active. Cancelling my cable TV was easier.

  41. Nick Wilson-avatar

    The app's UI is very very bad. I've also been trying, unsuccessfully, to cancel my subscription for TWO DAYS. I have to contact my credit card company and tell them to block the next payment because there is literally no other way for me to stop the $15/mo from being deducted from my bank account. I would not recommend this app or subscribing to the NYT in general.

  42. Sarvothaman Madhavan-avatar

    Notification alerts do not open the actual article that was notified. Everything else is good with the app

  43. Troy Talks-avatar

    Frustrating...I paid for a digital subscription & kept getting notifications saying I was still unsubscribed despite having already been billed. It was only after I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app that I was able to access the articles I paid for. That is unacceptable for such a famous brand as the NYT... Tip: 1) invest in app developers who know what they're doing 2) make unsubscribing easier (you can't even do it in the app) 3) professionally respond to negative reviews!

  44. Joe Supererogatory-avatar

    Must register for selecting news categories. Can't rotate screen.

  45. E J-avatar

    This app worked so wonderfully well but has recently become hot garbage. Notifications lead to the wrong stories and upon opening the app, I am bombarded by notifications that seem to have been withheld. Not to mention the ads. I only read on my phone so this is enough for me to cancel my subscription and give WaPo and their app a try

  46. Beki Thomson-avatar

    After log in I still get the paywall. No response from support at all. Update: The app has stopped displaying anything and I'm constantly getting messages that Play services need permission for everything on my phone including body sensors. It doesn't seem that the Times app should need access to anything on my phone.

  47. Rita Giovinazzo-avatar

    I just subscribed to NYT and was so excited to see this on my phone, but its messing up my phone big time. Screen freezing, then black, then colored dots dancing on the screen. What? Where is quality control? Testing? Anything? Im uninstalling - at least the mobile app. This needs to be sorted.

  48. Stan Palmer-avatar

    Paid for subscription, got confirmation of the payment. Logged in via Google. Subscription not recognized. Changed password, subscription still not recognized. Submitted assistance request. Awaiting response. This was the reason I unsubscribed a year ago (double billing for non accessible app) and thought Id try agin. Needs a certified user-focused UX team to redesign for easier subscription logging.

  49. Haven Williams-avatar

    Just resubcribed to find they've run their GUI into the ground. 1/3 of navigation bar dedicated to something I never use, sections tab feels disjointed and bland makes me feel like I'm looking at an amateur hour app design contest participant. A huge drop from the bar set by any other newspaper app. If their old design wasn't great then I don't see why making it dumber now makes any sense.

  50. Elliot Gilchrist-avatar

    Elliot Gilchrist


    The "For You" section just keeps saying "an error occured" and not loading, reinstalling didnt help. Sometimes it says im offline when im not. The "Most Popular" section shows a loading spinner for a second, then it goes away and the screen is just blank.

  51. LT T-avatar

    The notifications are useless. I get a notification of a specific headline but when I activate it, I am taken to the home page of the New York Times, never to the story. And nine times out of ten, the story I am looking for is not on the home page. Very, very annoying.

  52. Larry Berkowitz-avatar

    Larry Berkowitz


    Wash Post provides better coverage. But I like having both.

  53. Justin Burke-avatar

    Recent updates have broken notifications: clicking on a mitigation does but always result in the selected article opening up. It depends on whether the app has been opened recently and has pulled an update. If the app has not updated recently, then a click on a notification will only open the app but not the selected article.

  54. giovanni solis-avatar

    Very annoying to get an article alert click on it and just get brought into the live news updates. I usually have to Google the article to find it since navigating articles isn't always the best since the app is a focused view.

  55. Christopher Burns-avatar

    Christopher Burns


    Great coverage but app doesn't eliminate advertising. Really annoying that the video ads will cause the screen to not scroll correctly either. Paid app with advertising. I guess it's like the actual paper in that regard. Wish I knew in advance.

  56. Steve R Yates-avatar

    V. 9.1.3 for my fire 8 tablet, modded for Play Store, is an epic fail. Seems like the developers for nyt have no clue about how humans actually want to read a newspaper, or how to program an app. The section tabs at the upper left are now gone, and moved to the bottom, and these are less than useful, and require an extra step to access content. The "For You" feature at bottom of screen should actually named "F#@% You" for all its usefulness. Version 9.1.2 was much better, and easier to navigate

  57. Mike-avatar

    I enjoy the content of the NYT and subscribe to their online only edition but may cancel because there are way too many distracting ads. It's almost one after each paragraph and some even autoplay video or animation. Will developers one more month to make changes or I'll be switching to another news outlet.

  58. Mira Allen-avatar

    This app is very buggy. It often will say I am offline when I am not (all my other apps work just fine). Impossible to update without logging out. It never stays logged in, and frequently asks me to subscribe when I'm already subscribed. About to switch to another publication.

  59. Thomas Stephenson-avatar

    Thomas Stephenson


    Impossible to search for articles, and when you get notifications, expanding the notification will change the article you get when clicking thr notification. This makes it impossible to read full headlines of some articles, and has been more of a problem recently.

  60. Jen Schmahl-avatar

    I have subscribed for 3 years. Now I read an article and the app tells me I've reached my limit of free articles and takes me to a screen to subscribe with no option to log into my account. Everything is Google play store shows my subscription is active. I'm this close to getting out of NYTimes altogether.

  61. Mark Pilloff-avatar

    App crashes immediately whenever I try to log on with my Huawei tablet.

  62. Keith Mitchell-avatar

    Borderline unusable. Disabling video autoplay does not work, this plus articles riddled with animated ads makes for a very distracted reading experience. Makes *very* heavy use of CPU, storage and battery. PLEASE provide an option for NON-video ads and content only. Worst app on my device.

  63. Zack Bray-avatar

    Sometimes they have relevant news. Mostly biased nonsense. I keep it around, because it would be foolish not to know what bs people are being fed by the media. But not one story Is written without thick layers of bias and irrelevant opinions. Take this media with a grain of salt and you can find useful news. One star because your opinion is not wanted, give me the news and nothing more.

  64. Kyle Trebotich-avatar

    Quality journalism. Fluid app with nice customization. Big missing feature though is dark mode.

  65. d-avatar

    needs in app feedback section, text size options do not work in some articles or sections of the app

  66. Raja Boppana-avatar

    This review is not regarding Nytimes but the app. They built one ridiculous app. Which has to uninstalled and reinstalled again every couple of days as the latest version is available. It doesn't auto update, or if you update manually does not recognize the update.

    This app is collecting significant data in the background while idle. My firewall has this app communicating with social media and ad tracking sights almost hourly while not being used. This is also why it's using so much battery. I'll be cancelling my subscription and deleting

    The new UI is terrible. It forces you to select sections to acces a new section. And always go through it to navigate between them. Please bring back the old favorites tab at the top. It was way easier to navigate in the app.

    This is guys are real cheaters. If you want to cancel your subscription you need too call an US number or foreign number. There is a chat option but never someone available. You cant remove your card and so baiscally they lock you in. Really guys, what is this??? i bought a subscription of a paper i didnt join NKVD....i want to cancel with a click, bloody rip off.... worst digital purchade in my life, i will never click on anything from them again and tell all my friends and family to stay away

    The biggest issue I have with this app is that when I click on a notification I'm not taken to the story I was notified about. What's the point of doing notifications then?

  71. Connor Mooney-avatar

    I like this app and publication, but when I get multiple notifications and try to expand the notifications, it ends up showing the same summary as the first notification. It sure is annoying to have to open the app each time.

  72. Jon Butler-avatar

    Some of the best news in the world that's unfortunately marred by a heinous amount of ads. Nine ads in the middle of a single article is beyond insane, especially for a paid subscriber! Use a web browser with ads blocker instead.

  73. S B-avatar

    I think you guys got a bug going. When logging in using a google account, then logging out and trying to log in with another google account doesn't work since the app just logs you in with the first google account you fed it which is awful if you logged in using the wrong account.

    Rapidly kills my battery. I've blocked this app from running in the background and it still will use 40% of my battery in the background. Considering ending my subscription to the paper due to how much this app impacts my overall battery life even when not in use.

  75. Sakib Elahi-avatar

    Love the content, but recent updates made this app unusable. Crashes constantly, can't even read a single article before a crash. Often can't load articles, just get a blank screen. Breaking news alerts display wrong description when expanding notification. On Galaxy S8

  76. tareq Tout-avatar

    Too many distracting Advertisements; more than using any browser. I paid monthly subscription to focus in reading. No way to remove ads. Do not waste your time and money. Go free on chrome without disgusting ads.

  77. Emma Conroy-avatar

    I get pop-up notifications about stories so when I see something I want to read, I click on it. More often than not, this takes me to the home page not the story. This is frustrating and I'm waiting for the fix

  78. Clark Metzger-avatar

    Thought I would give it a chance, but totally left biased very skewed articles. A lot of opinion, very little unbiased news. If you want a cheerleader for the left, this is your app. If you are middle-of-the-road in your views, as I am, look elsewhere.

    Great content but mediocre app. It drains the battery -- Android says so and it's also obvious that closing the app reduces power drain. Large ads disrupt the flow of reading -- they're trying hard to trick you into clicking.

  80. Richard Beatty-avatar

    I'm a paid subscriber and like supporting real investigative journalism... But being force fed advertising annoys me. Animated ads, video ads, geez!!! Also, this app consumes seriously excessive battery - what is it doing? Seems very suspect. Poor user experience.

    Had problems awhile ago with the app not loading articles. It's working well now. Just a side note, lookout has recently started notifying me that it's blocking malicious links when I open the nytimes app - it's not causing any problems but I'm not sure what that's about.

  82. Becki Willmer-avatar

    If I tap on any of my push notifications about certain articles, it just opens up the main page of the app instead of opening that article. Really annoying.

  83. Tommy Graham-avatar

    Total battery hog. It's incredible that an app meant to replace a static piece of paper can be the most resource intensive app on my phone. Just use the website.

  84. Lucas Barrie-avatar

    App displays ads to paying members. Also spams you with notifications, seems like everything is breaking news. Why not have better controls for notifications. This stuff isn't rocket surgery.

  85. Ross Douglas-avatar

    Works Well. No issues installing or logging on.

  86. Yiorgos Thoma-avatar

    I am a subscriber for more than a year. News reporting is probably the best in the world. The experience however is not good. App is filled with bugs and customer support doesn't really care. I hope they see all the comments here and improve their services, because it's a shame.

    Crashes every minute or two with no apparent reason

    Ruined the battery life on my phone. Only sending push notifications throughout the day and I had never opened the app even once today and it had taken out 31 percent withing 3 hours. That 3 hours also was filled with YouTube which only took 16 percent. Horrible

  89. Julia Deneva-avatar

    Freezes and crashes so often as to be unusable. I keep hoping an update will finally fix it but the latest update actually made it worse.

  90. Maganey-avatar

    Writers are biased and try to confuse the readers when they disagree with something, witholding very important data and pointing out irrelivent data to sew confusions. They are fake news and shouldnt be allowed on google play. They also take permissions to all your data to collect and sell, DO NOT INSTALL

  91. Rebeca-avatar

    I couldn't praise the NYT enough, so I need only say that subscribing is definitely worth your money. The app is generally good, apart from the ocasional crashes and some issues with notifications.

  92. Idris Kahil-avatar

    Good writing, wide coverage of news and other topics, no major complaints. Links were broken, now fixed. Notifications were broken, now fixed (13-Jan-2020)

  93. Tia Daniel-avatar

    It's an OK app. The "save for later" feature won't let me unsave when I am finished with the article. It's very annoying.

    Indespensible news source. Like the mobile interface a great deal.

  95. Thomas Davison-avatar

    Bug in notifications: when there are multiple notifications, sometimes when expanding one to read it, the description text is from a different story.

  96. Dale Campbell-avatar

    Have to log in every time for it to recognize my subscription. Annoying at best, illogical for a piece of software that is subscription based.

    It needs more news and technical support to serve in a better way. Pay attention towards it.

  98. Ryan Mutton-avatar

    Push notifications have been broken for six months. You click them and the app opens with no way to find the article you meant to read.

    It keeps asking me to update to the latest version (though I have installed the latest one) and stops me from reading articles.

    Thanks! There best journalistic content there is.
