Good but has layout problems on my win 8.1 tablet

Some of the columns are truncated on the right side when in full screen mode. The columns next to ads are cut off. Also needs a dark theme to save battery.

App Login Doesn't Work

This app is broken, per customer service at the NY Times. You will not be able to look at more than 3 articles per day, even after you pay for unlimited access. You will get a log in error that tells you to try again later. I cancelled my subscription. Disappointing.

Who calls 286 day old information "news"? The New York Times app.

User Unfriendly

This infuriating app thinks it knows better than me how I want to read a story. No matter where I move to in the story, it automatically snaps it back to position on every fourth column (a screenful). Why can't I position just where I want to be in the story, like I can on the index of stories screen? I don't know what the designer of this user interface was thinking of, but it certainly wasn't the user.

Windows 8 app needs updating

I have constant problems with the NY Times windows 8 app. I noticed that it was last updated more than a year ago. There appears no way to update the app on the NY Times app site. This app doesn't work very well with windows 8. I recommend NYT readers to stop subscribing until they fix it. NY Times Subscribers should demand a refund to compensate for the dismal performance of their App.

Good News App

I'm not sure why others complained. Gives you all the NYT headlines of the day. Most stories 1-12 hours old. Pleasure to read visually. Currently don't have NYT unlimited account but do get headlines from app.

logon function for unlimited access is broken

I have used this app for a number of months and the logon function is very unstable. Sometimes it works and then for days you can't logon

Lacks the search function

Also missing is the "share" function. Such as share to social media or generate a short link to open somewhere else.

cannot log in

Have a paid subscription for tablet and web and while it was working before, it's not working now. Keep logging in and it keeps saying I have a 3 article limit. Last update was in August last year, so the app hasn't changed, but what it's connecting to isn't working. Broken app.

It would be great if it let me read more than 3

Articles. I am a paid subscriber to the paper and should be allowed to enter my login/password so I can read unlimited material on the app. But, the app does not accept my login/password info from Windows 8.1 on a new Surface Pro 3. It works on my WIndows 8.1 phone but not on my PC. This is really terrible!
