Awful
Newsstand is the worst. Nyt, I love you, but I'm leaving you for wapo simply because they don't support newsstand and waste my time.

Great paper, okay app
I prefer to use Safari to read the New York Times. In the NYTimes app, the banner navigation system at the top does not recede when reading. Also, the Times app does not allow one to adjust the Font type. I prefer to read Helvetica like an Safari's reading mode. Safari in iOS 7 provides a reading mode that makes for a much more pleasant experience, so I just use the nytimes mobile website instead. In addition, entering and exiting through newsstand isn't required this way either. I just use the "Add to Homescreen" function in Safari. That said, I still had the New York Times app installed. It is good for receiving news alerts.

Bugs with saved articles
My older saved articles show only a title and picture but no article text. Also my saved articles don't sync between my iPad and iPhone at all. Please fix this

Limiting my use of your app to 3 articles per day is a great way to force me to consume news content somewhere else. This app has been deleted.

Smart links
Please fix the way links behave: if I touch a link while scrolling, the app will open it. Other apps (e.g. Safari) are smart enough to distinguish between an intentional tap on the link and an accidental one while swiping to scroll the page.

Needs work - text size and video
I echo the comments of other reviewers - please allow the option to adjust the text size only within the NYT app - not via a universal, device-wide change. This is making it incredibly hard for me to use when reading. In addition videos suffer from the whiteish translucent bar at the top of screen that blocks out about 10% of the Video -- in other words, terrible design. Last - why are links so sensitive? I can't scroll without accidentally opening up something in Safari. Annoying!
