5 Star Content, 1 Star Pricing
Love the times. The writing is excellent, love the persistent updates, and while the design could be better it is good enough for my purposes. However, the pricing model is absurd. $14.99 per month for iPhone only, and $34.99 for iPad/iPhone? That's insane for information freely available elsewhere, and nearly $500 per year if you want to read on your iPad. I can see a voracious, news hungry back to front reader parting with that kind if money but as a casual news consumer that is just a bridge too far. I've uninstalled it and now use Flipboard and occasionally read the Times on my computer. If they ever create a more reasonable subscription model, I may be back.

Please remove persistent ads in the paid experience
Inline ads are fine but persistently taking up screen space mars the reading experience which makes me not watch the ad by not wanting to read or subscribe to Nytimes iPhone app (opting for Kindle instead). There are so many innovative ways these days to have a profitable ad relationship with the reader but forcing you to watch, breaking in when you're trying to have a focused read is not one that warms me up to the advertiser's message.
