The New York Times App Tips, Tricks and Rules

The New York Times Reviews

a guy who reviews stuff

No iPhone X support  a guy who reviews stuff  2 star

This app has improved dramatically since my last review. Ads no longer seem as prevalent and they do not move to obscure the text anymore. However, the lack of iPhone X support is glaring, especially seeing as how most other apps on my phone managed to update to fit the resolution almost immediately. I will give this app 5 stars when iPhone X support is added.


Why is this not optimized for iPhone X?  Nicholas  2 star

It’s impossibly tiny on the newest iPhone. Update your app and keep up with your competition. Most other newspapers have adapted and they look great. Not NYT.


Love it!  CalifDude  4 star

I love the New York Times. Such great quality journalism. The way information is presented is innovative as well, with some great interactive features. The app works well too. My only complaint is that the app has been taking up a huge amount of storage on my iPhone. Over 1 GB.


Ads cut off music  saymylastname  2 star

If an ad shuts off my music I close the app. This app allows ads to shut off my music. Please resolve and the app will be more useful for consuming the news as opposed to forcing me to hear my fellow commuters on the NYC subway.


Great content, no iPhone X support  hleenii  3 star

Great content, no iPhone X support


Your ads are stopping music playback  Amnesia101  1 star

I like the app and its stream like content which makes it easy to view information on the go. However, your ads constantly stop music playback and it’s unbearable. This must be fixed. I’m a paying subscriber why do these ads exist??


unexpected quit  vmcad  2 star

don't know what happened. cannot open it recently.


Show more stories  Tarabine  2 star

How do I see all the great stories you write? I often use Google News since they surface NYT articles I’m interested in. Then I go back to NYT app and search for the article. That’s crazy. Show all the articles in a section. Also I find I’m often clicking on ads when I was really trying to scroll down. I guess that’s good for you since you earn money (and deserve to), but it’s annoying as a user.


Good news, bad app  ejd56  1 star

Glitchy. Every time I open the app it takes me to an article I looked at days ago. If it’s a link the app crashes every time.


Great App!  APBthe3  4 star

Works great, looks great. Just needs iPhone X support!


iPhone X support  pass1234  1 star

It took them over a year to support the iPad Pro 12.9 inch. Now they also don’t support the X. I’m cancelling in one week if they don’t sort it out by then.

Radio stream user

Not a patch on the old version  Radio stream user  1 star

I used to love this app. It always loaded so fast. Now it rarely loads at all, tells me I don't have an internet connection or freezes. Such a shame for such a great newspaper! I may have to give up my subscription if they don't fix it soon.

Xebvifvnkmbc c

Buggy, crashes alot  Xebvifvnkmbc c  1 star

Latest version hangs/freezes almost every time I use it making it practically useless.


App won't open  Desimir  1 star

It worked for a while when I first installed it. Now all I get is the gothic "t" in the middle of a white screen, then it closes.


Quite simply, it doesn't work  AusMossy  1 star

I have an older iPad, but that hasn't caused issues with the previous version of this app. I have tried using this app several times a day in the weeks since I installed it, but it has loaded only a couple of times. Stick to the old version if you can.


Terrible  ozkt  2 star

I read the NYT everyday and the new app fails to open 2 out of 3 times. It then tells me I have no internet connection when I do. Just a bad app. The old version was far superior

Hu Li Jing

Inferior  Hu Li Jing  2 star

This version is far inferior and less functional compared to the previous one. It requires a constant internet connection to work as it cannot cache articles properly and chaotically updates so I cannot read the articles I want to read when I want to as they will possibly have disappeared.


Fake News  PCPAUL53  1 star

Biased, liberal, anti-Trump. This failing rag isn't worth reading. Great for a bird cage.


Annoying notifications  iPhone4-'10_iPad2-'11  1 star

The app now seems to randomly show notifications for Australian news. No option to fine tune in the settings - they keep showing up even if it's set to Breaking News only. Rubbish.

Anders J B

Crashes frequently  Anders J B  1 star

Morning Briefing feature for Australia crashes consistently. Not good enough when paying a subscription.


Not optimized for iPhone X  safsraptor  1 star

PLEASE update this app for iPhone X! Many other flagship news providers have already done so. The app looks comically small and feels claustrophobic. I would be happy to give a higher rating once this is fixed!


NY times  likesthetruth  1 star

Please take the fake news off my phone

Jack Danforth

BIASED  Jack Danforth  1 star

Everything they write is so anti-Trump I’m not republican but I can clearly see the lies trash newspaper better in everything else but should stay out of politics


Where are today’s articles?  Gerritkl  1 star

I keep seeing Read and old articles. New articles are mixed in. It’s hard to spot all the today’s articles. Very confusing. And although I paid for a subscription I still see ads all over. Not a good experience


iPhone X 💩  christopher.daley  1 star

Update for iPhone X needed!!!


The Latest NYT App Stinks!  radam10  1 star

I've been a subscriber of the New York Times for decades, using the iPad App for about the last 5 years. The latest design stinks! It's excessively freeform, with articles placed here and there. I prefer to read section-by-section, in my own preferred sequence. The reporting and the general interest articles are still top-notch, but the app design should be scrapped!


Terrible update  theadean  1 star

What were they thinking? That their readers need more eye candy and ads? This update makes it harder to find articles I am interested in and the graphic lay out is distracting and confusing. Hopefully the Times will realize it’s mistake and revise this update ASAP

Big, Big John

Missing Features  Big, Big John  3 star

Update 11/9: Props to NYT for listening to users, and adding comments back in the app. Yay! Now if only I could search through comments... The content is still excellent (although a little too focused on whatever the latest domestic crisis is. Everything else gets shoved in other sections). However, the new version lost several important features: - Auto-update is now always on. There used to be an option to disable it for those of us who wanted to preserve bandwidth or finish reading yesterday's articles before downloading today's. Not any more. - Commenting is disabled. You can no longer comment on articles, "recommend" comments, or even view the number of recommendations a comment had generated. This has been removed by design (a poor choice IMHO). - Search feature has been moved to a separate button in "Sections", making it harder to find and use. All in all, I think the app is worse than before.


The ads are overwhelming  Dangermen.  1 star

If you compare this NYT app to the old one, there are easily 10-15 times more ads. There is an ad nearly every other paragraph for stories that are published. Where the old app had ads down the side, this regularly spaces in the stories. If I wanted to pay for a cheap Las Vegas strip-like billboard news paper, I would ask for it.
