LA Times Reviews


Re-used stories  szinla  2 star

I see the same stories day after day. Not enough new news. Also, Hot Properties is buried under Business. What's up with that?


0 - STARS!  ANTHONY_87  1 star

In the free LA Times version, when you click on an article, it should ask you if you want to proceed indicating the amount of articles you have left to read that month. I literally just downloaded the app, looking for a specific post from this morning, unaware of the 5 free articles a month, I clicked on 5 articles, no longer able to read any more. I kept seeing the number in the bottom increase but I simply thought it was an ad. I am very disappointed with this so called called app for local news.


Worst fake news newspaper for Los Angeles  ajimmy19  1 star

Mostly about politics and all news is really bad, seems like the writers doing all fake news here.


Account is hard to access  Matz4444444444  2 star

Trying to get account information is difficult. Problematic problems accessing on multiple devices and platforms even when I logon and enter ID and password. Password will work in one device phone, but not desktop. Need to keep up LA times my Slate and Bloomberg apps work flawlessly and they are free. Trying hard to keep you.


I use it daily  SwKevo  5 star

Very easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and most importantly- great journalism


Pretty good  Gogols  4 star

Seems to work pretty much like other mainstream newspaper apps and works fine for me. The Times itself is a solid paper, of course, with particularly strong coverage on So Cal and the entertainment industry. I'm happy to be a digital subscriber.

One of the five most important news sources in America!  Gary E Miller 1  5 star

National coverage is original, not pulled and rehashed from a wire service. Good sports and lots of local scuttle butt.


Great format  Brewers4105  5 star

Newspaper website formats are all over the place. This app works best for me.


Love this app!  Shellandjj  5 star

Thrilled to receive my Los Angeles news with this app! Always timely, smart, and well-written. Definitely recommend it.

No more pop up adds please  Dr Pedro V.  5 star

No more initial pop up adds, the most annoying type of adds and a reminder I'm paying too much for pop up adds each time.

LA Times  ZaftaP  5 star

The digital LA Times is wonderful. Not only can I stay current on national and international news, I also get to know what is happening in Los Angeles as well as in California. I especially appreciate the notifications about important stories that go unmentioned in other papers. Good work, outstanding journalism!!!


Very Useful  Maieshas  3 star

Great way to find out what's happening when out and about


Out Of Touch With The Times  thenumbercruncher  2 star

Unfortunately the LA Times is out of touch with the way the news media and tech work today. The App tries to get you to subscribe by limiting you to 5 free stories/month. It seems like other media companies are happy to provide free news in exchange for advertisements. If you really like the LA Times, just go to their website instead of their app. You can read all the articles without limitations.

Always there  Ms JoMama  5 star

Love the digital LA Times. Easy to read and navigate. I receive the actual paper version 4 days a week, always liked having a "real" paper but, the digital has fast become my favorite way to read the news. The convenience can't be beat.


Great app and great journalism!  kritlop  5 star

Easy to use app. Keep the great articles coming!

Gotta have it  Lifecake devotee  4 star

La Times, I'm mor grateful to you than ever. In the age of fake news and a deranged POTUS, I really rely on you and this app. Thanks for all you do!

Animation Man

Not enough of the news I want  Animation Man  2 star

I subscribe to the online LA Times because I wanted to get information about the new healthcare bill. However, I got everything but information about the healthcare bill. The reporting I did get felt biased.


Mobile App  Pameast0822  5 star

I enjoy the mobile app! It's easy for me and my husband prefers the paper version. It's a win-win for both of us! I also appreciate the notifications that arrive periodically.


Love it  Ondeez1  5 star

Straight forward


Nice  Giov144  4 star

Great, intuitive format! I love how easy it is to find what I'm interested in and just read it. It has become my go-to enewspaper!
