Very unhappy after many good years of use.

I've been having a problem for the last few months that makes my paid subscription almost worthless on my phone. Whenever I link to an article from a headline, the page always shows up blank. I cannot read a single article.




Platform: Mobile

Stop with all the links!!!!

Every article is laced with dark blue words, which are links- that whisk you far far away from your article. Then you must heroically find your way back & spot of where u left off. It's not one link- it looks like the bomb 💣 zone. They're everywhere & it becomes nothing short of a misplaced finger & it starts all over again! Enough with the links!!!!

No search. What good is all-digital access if you can't find what you're looking for? Limited browse features. Not useless, but feels like a cheap knock-off app, unworthy of the name.

Nice but sorely out of date

Solid app, but not on a par functionally with its iPhone and Android counterparts. Would really like ability to view comments! This app is really showing it's age; I usually bypass it in lieu of the Times' mobile-friendly website. Note: If it crashes on startup, just uninstall it and reinstall it.

Web version much better

Mediocre app. Ad to subscribe, even though you've subscribed, appears on every page. Very distracting. Page lay out horrible; web version much much better.

Used to be a great app, until they updated it today. Now it prompts me to sign in every time I open it, and when I do it only lasts that session. When I reopen it again, it makes me sign in again. Refuses to remember sign in info.

For what it does, it gets the job done

I'd like to see a Windows 10 version of the app, but the system works great for what it is.

Great news app

Great App. Wonderful design. Great UI. Should enable offline reading specially for commuters in the NYC area. Also a dark theme won't hurt. Keep up the good work. Nokia user.
