I paid for content, not ads
It's reasonable to pay for good journalism. And a few ads are fine. But now the iPhone version of the NYT has become less a news-reading experience and more a study in the frustrations of ignoring the increasingly in-your-face nature of its advertising environment. The balance has been tipped; it's no longer worth it.

Crashes regularly now
Needs another update for iOS 7, thanks.

Bad update
Every time the page orientation changes from vertical to horizontal it loses your place where you are in the article so that you may end up dozens of paragraphs off and have to scroll through again and again to find your place. It's also annoying that you can no longer control text size (you have to change text size for the entire phone). Finally, I hate Newstand. This is the only program I have in Newstand and so it's just an extraneous click to be able to access this program. The adds are annoying but expected.

Would be 5star but for Newsstand
Why force NYT app into the useless Newsstand folder? I for one to get it. I hope NYT is getting something from Apple because the subscribers aren't benefitting.

Crash prone since update
Crashes constantly since latest update. Also, annoyingly opens links while scrolling. As a paying subscriber I really expect a little better functionality.

Crash!
Is it too much to ask for an app that doesn't crash every 10 minutes?
