LA Times: Your California News Reviews


Easy to switch views  Calcumoose  4 star

Love this app. I can see my news "old style" in newspaper layout or as a list of titles with article previews. Much easier than I thought it would be to use.


So hard to navigate  etm  1 star

I have a newspaper subscription which includes digital access. I can never get the app to work. I get stopped after five stories, then it's a bear getting to the login. Then you login and the password doesn't work, so you try reset and 10 minutes later you don't have a reset. I subscribe to four newspapers - three include paper delivery and one is just digital, and I am SO frustrated with LAT. I guess tomorrow I'll try reminding them again that I'm a subscriber. I wish they would make this friendlier to the subscribers. Makes me mad, have been a reader for 40 years.

While I've had this app for awhile over time it has become increasingly worse as each update brings multiple changes that instead of improving the site damage the experience all to often this app crashes and theres no enjoyment in that,These are but an few reasons while I'd not recomend and will be deleting! What previously was an free app now there's an throttling approach just like going over your data after two stories you're shown a warning you've met the maximum and no more stories unless you buy a subscription. What a piece of crap now!! Used to be good bring back the freedom to be informed


Excellent coverage  motsapropo  5 star

And then some. Love it!


Love the LA Times  Talley13101  4 star

The LA Times app is great because it helps me stay connected and informed, especially about local issues, in our fast-paced world. As a native Southern Californian, receiving the daily print edition of the newspaper was a constant in my life for as long as I can remember. Spending the morning with the print edition, especially on Sundays, was a treasured ritual. Now, thanks to a busy work schedule and other obligations, there's no time to savor the print edition - I really miss the tactile pleasure of handling the paper. The LA Times app is the next best thing and I know I can rely on it to stay informed. Keep up the good work!


Love the Times  podmaster45  5 star

I should say I appreciate the investigative work and California follows that the LA Times does. Love this app.. solid.. easy to bookmark, share. I'm still a fan of the news that's laid out and curated by editors so I also appreciate the e-paper as a good companion to this app. Bravo LA Times --


Missing auto background save for offline viewing  Ikkjebegeistret  2 star

This is always an annoyance when I sit down on a plane and discover... darn, I forgot to dig into the menu and make the choice... then wait a while while it downloads. The app should in the least allow me to select an option to always download in the background. This is a feature of the NYTimes solution to the same question. Could be worse, one of my devices has an Android version of the LATimes app which keeps reminding me that I have x of 5 remaining articles to read .. even though I can clearly see that I am logged in to my subscription... I need to ask app support about that, that would tell me if the LATimes app support group is anywhere near as good as that for the NYTimes.


app needs "copy and paste"  DakotaPuma  4 star

I like that LA Times gives me a news feed up front, and if I want I can still open up the e-newspaper. I would almost give this app all 5 stars, but it is clumsy for copying a particular quote that I may want to paste and save somewhere else.


Copy and paste, please!  ls82749166518  3 star

I tend to share articles fairly often on Facebook, always with a quote from the article, but I very rarely share LA Times articles because the app does not support copy and paste. It's really too bad, because it would otherwise be free publicity for the paper. Here's what I do when I just HAVE to share an article: I take a screenshot of the portion of the article I want to quote, and then in Photos I crop down to the paragraph I want. I then hit the share button and put it into an email, where I can see the screenshot. I engage Siri and dictate the paragraph into the email. I then copy this dictated text, go back to the LA Times app, share the article to Facebook and paste in the text. It's ridiculous that I need to do this - and therefore I rarely do.


Good but has problems  ohbrooksthegirl  3 star

It's nice to get my newspaper via this app. But a major flaw is that suggested articles following stories link to the website and open in my BROWSER, not the app, which is super annoying.

Ok  Big kahuna-0  2 star

App opens quickly, no long waits usually. Layout of paper is ok not to exciting, biggest problem for me is font & gray font color. Why. Makes reading articles difficult.

Terrible  DogsFTW 123  1 star

I just paid for this subscription but every story i read warns me that i need to subscribe, beyond frustrating, and screen is so covered with ads that i cant read articles. Stick with the nytimes


Getting better  Dfrog2  4 star

My salvo at getting 'real news' is mainly here, although I get Washington Post & CNN feeds too. The local & Cali news is the best, sports- I mostly get elsewhere. The app works fine for me & seems to improve as we go along.


WARNING!! Update destroys functionality  SadandMad•  1 star

The photo and description indicate you can scroll through sections but with the update NO. I used to swipe through each section but had an article that was still on the Home & Garden page for 3 months and the App Help team said it was because I didn't have an updated version. As soon as I updated, I could no longer swipe between sections. I swipe left, read a list of sections, choose it and go to the section. To move to a new section, repeat. I no longer use the app and will probably cancel my subscription.


Thank you LA times!  Court3553  5 star

The app works great and does everything it needs to do. I am really enjoying it. I am a millennial and wanted to PAY for reputable news and vote with my dollars. I have always loved the times and chose to get the subscribe electronically to the LA times. Thank you!


No Access  TooManyCDs  1 star

LA Times app is fine. Accessing news through the Apple News app is fine. I was not able to access from a computer. LA Times customer service tried to tell me "Unlimited Digital Access" didn't include their website. Then they tried to tell me that LA Times were not the right ones to call for website access issues because they are not affiliated with Apple. Huh? After many back and forth emails, it just wasn't worth it. Canceled.


Very slow searches, unreadable categories  nosketch  1 star

The categories of articles used to be on the left, vertically arranged. It was easy to see a large number of them and easy to quickly scroll through them. Now they are in small, faint, hard to read gray type. Only a few can be seen a time, because they must be scrolled sideways. They are difficult to scroll and select. The list of articles on the screen is very slow to load more articles as you scroll down. Searches are excruciatingly slow and sometimes appear to freeze the app. When a search does work, it brings up a lot of unrelated results, regardless of the search terms. The old app was ugly but useable. I prefer to read the paper on the web site rather than use this app. Check out the NY Times for an app that really gets it right.

Poor  Billy Beers  1 star

The paper is great the app is poor!


It's okay  mrsnak  3 star

Still seems to be an abridged version of the paper. Much faster to read a printed edition and you get far more solid content. Needs an e edition that displays a full version of the paper.


La times app  stupid_time  1 star

The fonts are too light and too small, no pictures.
