Seattle Times online
I originally began the online mode when I had a difficult time getting home delivery to a new address after thirty years of delivery at the old address. Very quickly, I appreciated the convenience and mobility and no mess aspect of the online edition. Physically, it is much easier to hold an iPad in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other, than a newspaper with both hands. Online has been to both coasts and Hawaii. If our resting place has no WiFi, which is rare, a local bar can be used to download the news faster than I can finish a beer....well maybe. My recycle bin is less full and I will never have to walk up the driveway to grab a wet paper again. I am in my early 70s and as my visual acuity wanes I can easily make the print larger...Kurt

Extremely limited
This app makes it easy to read articles, and you can bookmark articles to come back to. However, there are significant limitations. For example, there is no search function. The articles you can view are limited by what you can browse to, which means you often can’t find older articles or articles that are not being featured. Also, when using the app you can’t see any comments, or make a comment, or even see whether comments are enabled on the story - you would have to open the article in a web browser, which is not easy to figure out how to do from the app itself (if it is even possible). Finally, I subscribe to the daily newsletter to get the rundown on featured stories; but when you click on an article from your email, the link opens the article in a web browser, not the app, and once you hit the paywall, you have to log in every single time you want to view an article in a browser. In general, the app seems to be very poorly integrated with other technologies, and it is very challenging to use the app to find or track a story.

Good enough, but a bit of a scam
The app and its stability is pretty great, but the way they go about the articles feels a little cheap and unbecoming of the Seattle Times. I understand having to pay a subscription fee, and that’s not my beef with the app. My beef is the way they push notifications to your phone that seemingly have a full story, but then you click to open the story using one of your sixteen articles for the month just to find out the story is 1-2 paragraphs long. In fact, 1 out of every 4 articles or so is like this, and as a result makes the app feel cheap and like a money grab, especially when they’re constantly reminding you of how many you’ve read that month and then pushing you to subscribe. I enjoy a relevant, quality news organization as much as anyone, and understand the need to pay for news, but I think the non-subscription method could be fixed in order to draw in more people, people who would actually pay for the subscription at some point in time if it weren’t for the cheap, tacky feel the app gives off.

App is very frustraring to use, content is great
I use several news apps and Seattle Times is the only one that gives me consistent problems. Scrolling! When scrolling, if my thumb comes anywhere near an ad, it swipes instead of scrolls, which takes me back to the main menu, where I have to select my article and skim through the article to find where I left off. Super annoying, especially when I’m deep in an article and it happens several times in the same article. This is a daily occurrence. I thought an update might fix it, but nope. Also, the app consistently cuts off the last couple of sentences of articles which requires going back to the main menu and reloading the article. Also annoying. I appreciate having a local news source, but really hoping they can get these bugs fixed. Also, I am not seeing how to read or leave comments on articles. If this is not an option it should be, and if it is, they should make it more apparent on how to do it.

No Difference between Free and Paid
The app is only ok for reading the latest news, but I'm disappointed that content I receive for my paid subscription is the same as the free app. I even called your office to assist me in reinstalling the app because all I get is an abbreviated version of the print paper. We were loyal subscribers to the print paper for 20 years and wanted to continue our subscription when we moved to Oregon, but the cost was prohibitive, so we settled for paying for the online subscription. If you're going to offer a paid online subscription, I would like to see the app offer the same content since I only read the news on the go and don't have time to sit at my computer. I miss my comics and gardening sections! I'd like to see a search feature too. Please offer your paid subscribers a way to get more content. Otherwise, I don't see any benefit to paying for the subscription.

Fix this app PLEASE
Hey Seattle Times I love your paper. I pay for a subscription but this app is really below the line and stinks in so many ways.. 1 THERE IS NO SEARCH . Want to find related articles or something you have read in the past? Nope can’t find it because there is no search bar. 2 LINKING FORCES you into the web browser. Really ? Dang well what’s the point of having an app ? 3. MISSING SECTIONS of the physical newspaper. Again really who designed this app? I thought I paid to see the entire paper. 4. STOPPING MID-ARTICLE. What ?Why ? 5. NOT UPDATED often enough. It’s only seems to occur when forced by a new release of operating system. I know there are many other frustrated readers. Yes, the internet destroyed so many newspapers Seattle Times YOU ARE DRIVING AWAY INTERESTED PAYING USERS? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE a fix this app and put in new features.

Seattle Times Acess
The Seattle Times lets you access there main page but after only a couple times that you read an article they want you to spend money to join. No other national news apps require this and when I checked further there are hundreds of other cities that do not require this monetary requirement. I feel that this should be free to the general public. The Times makes enough on advertising and other monetary ventures. Most people do not have the ability to pay and keeping news from the public is not good. I can view all of there national news content on other news network internet apps for free. I can read Seattle news on one of the news networks apps for free. So why bother to read the Seattle Times? More over why should I be made to pay for this news outlet, when KIRO 7 and KOMO both provide free news. Get with it Seattle Times and help the public by providing free access to current news!

Ok App, Needs Some Polish
The Times app does allow you to read news. But it lacks some features of other news apps. •lacks the ability to direct clicks to Times stories that are emailed to the app rather than a web page •lacks the ability to mark stories to a “read later” or favorite queue. I have the Times email me top stories. When I click the story, it sends me to a web page even though the app is installed. The app should allow me to designate in a setting whether I want to read stories I click on the web or the app. And if I designate the app, then it should automatically route my click to launch the app and open the story. It also desperately needs the ability to mark a story for reading later. Compare Apple’s News app. When apple news sends me a notification of a story I’m interested in, directly from the notification I can mark a story to be read later if I do not immediately have time. This app does not do that. Also, when in a story, I should be able to favorite it and/or add it to a list of stories to read later. If they add these two features, as a subscriber, I would be eternally grateful and able to give a 5-star rating.

Much much improved
Thank you Seattle Times for today’s much needed update, especially that it now includes screen optimization for the iPhone X. I would like to make just one suggestion regarding the layout though. Please make the top section more translucent (get rid of the top border section). That way as you scroll down you can still see the article and pages while still seeing it as it goes behind the iPhone indicators (clock, location, signal strength & battery indicators. A great example of this is the revamped CBS News app. This in my opinion is currently the best optimized app for the iPhone X screen. You’re almost there Seattle Times. Thank you and keep up the great improvements!

Better But...
The app works well but not all of the Seattle Times content is directly accessible via the app. In some cases the app provides just the start of the content and then references you to the full article and this is just a web link. The Seattle Times web site viewed with a mobile web browser is horrific and consistently crashes. Current versions of Safari, Google Chrome, and Firefox all report problems with various versions of iPhones on current OSes. If the mobile web page doesn’t fail it will only partially load or repeatedly crash and reload. Best case scenario is the page loads and the ads constantly change size and you read a moving target; that really is the best case. Non-mobile versions of the web page are much better and work for the most part.

Beware of the never ending request to cancel subscriptions…
You may never be able to cancel your subscription or grow old trying. It is routed through a “Developing” nation. They will intentionally not cancel your account multiple times trying to keep you subscribed and continue to draft payments (they must have learned some tricks while writing pieces on shady corporations that employ tricks like this). How would anyone ever believe a word written in this publication when their transparency of cancellation is completely absent. Shame on The Seattle Times being the news people in the Northwest receive about this amazing world. Seems to be a common trend at the Seattle Times, saber rattle about in-equalities and corporate boogeymen and then have a complete criminal cancelation policy to extort subscribers.

Incomplete, not updated in a timely way
It cannot be this difficult to write an app that automatically yanks the full text of every posted article off a server and dumps it into the app. How many programmers are there in Seattle? Apparently the Times can hire none. No search. Incomplete content. Links open outside the app. Yesterday’s news today. No font size adjustment (for something whose readership certainly trends towards needing reading glasses). Come ON. Update: the late-to-never article posting has been fixed, but links still open outside the app. No good reason exists for a user to have to log in multiple times to read something referenced in a current article.

Articles are often cropped, app needs search
I’m a subscriber and I’m increasingly finding articles that are incomplete. I then have to clumsily find a way to open the article on the website to complete it. I would really like to be able to search for an article in the app. Another feature only available on the website unless it is buried somewhere in the app menu. Overall, app needs a bit of a refresh. I never use the My ST, Trending, and Latest tabs at the bottom of the screen. Would prefer search and a summary of what’s happening in Seattle today (events and important state, county, city decisions being made) tab.

Any chance your developers actually use the app?
Slow to load, hard to navigate, and not enjoyable to use. I often get the impression that your Web developers do not actually use the apps you create; pages often do not load completely whether on fast Wi-Fi or my cell network. The big ads you have in the middle of many of your articles are easily mis-clicked and then I’m taken away to some ridiculous add that has nothing to do with anything I’m interested in which I find to be slightly obnoxious because I pay for the honor to use the Seattle Times app via a subscription so I don’t understand why I need to be bombarded with more ads.

NY to Seattle
My family lives in Bellevue. Generally when I land at Seatec it’s a quick ride to the Factoria exit,and then the thrill of pulling into their driveway. We easily flow and start our reunion and visit. This grandmother has to wait for hugs and her Girl Scout cookies. I love your newspaper. Here in New York, I get a flavor of my family’s hometown. The photos and reporting keep me connected. Until Kennedy and Seatec reconnect, I’m grateful, every day for your quality coverage of the day’s’ events. Joni Brenner Huntington New York.

Poorly designed interface, limited access.
Apparently the subscription you buy through apple for 9.99 isnt full access. You cant access past articles with a search bar, and you cant access articles through an device other than your iphone app. I called the Seattle Times to Verify and they said even though Ive been paying 10$ a month for over a year that Im not considered a subscriber because I didnt buy it through them. Misleading and explains why Ive never been able to click through their email updates to read an article. Full digital sibscriptions should be purchased directly through the seattle times for 3.99/week

Review...
Overall decent content. Don't like that I can only read a few ads online before getting blocked. You need to have advertisers fund the option of online viewing vs having customers pay. As an FYI, the way around....I now click on your app icon, when I see an article that looks interesting, I go to google and type in your headlines...read your article in google, get what I need, and it's great- but you sent me somewhere else. If you didn't limit how many articles one could read on your ap, and not make the pay, yet charged advertisers... news "papers" might not be in the positions they're in. You're behind the times.

Good App, but irritating bug
This is literally the first app that I go to when I wake up in the morning, and I use it every day. Overall I like it, but it’s got a persistent bug that doesn’t happen with any of my other news apps. When I’m reading a news story, and I try to scroll down, many times the news story closes and I’m taken back to the main screen. There’s some bug with the scrolling function that treats it like a back button. I consciously try to avoid it, but it still happens all the time.

The website is better
The Seattle Times app is a poor clone of the website. Most of the content is the same, but the app has functionality problems. For example, I’ve found that some articles are cut off prematurely and that it is way too easy to exit out of an article I’m reading. Once you swipe right out of an article, you have to start the article over. You also can’t see comments on the article from the app. I really want to like the app, but I’m better off reading the mobile site rather than dealing with the infuriating app.

Does not support dynamic type font on iPhone
This is a MAJOR flaw. The font on the articles in the iPhone app is very small. iPhone has a setting called dynamic font. It means apps should use the font setting from there - especially a reading app. I am questioning my entire reason to subscribe to the electronics/mobile newspaper. Content that I see on Seattle Times Facebook is not on the app. Breaking news is updated after every other newspaper has already reported on it. I get this is local to Seattle, but still - I have turned off alerts for news due to that. Finally - if I see an article on Seattle Times Facebook and want to read it in this app, I cannot because I can’t find it. And there is not search button. This means even as a paying customer, unless Facebook tells me, I’m only reading a few curated articles using this app.

The paper has deteriorated
As a 19 year subscriber, I have seen a significant deterioration in the content and objectivity of the paper. The news section is a cut and paste essentially from The NY Times, Wash Post, and LA Times. I choose to read the news and make my own conclusion, not have the paper’s agenda strewn throughout each article. We aren’t stupid out here but the paper treats us that way. The Local news and Sports sections are ok but I can get that news online. The saddest part is when the editor uses a full page to pat himself on the back for winning the state-level print awards against such tough competition as the papers in smaller cities across the state. And the price for this keeps increasing.

A poorly designed program
I was recently advised the number of articles I could access would be limited just like it has been on the paper's regular website for sometime. So, I held my nose and paid for the app...about $10 per month through the Apple Store. But, this makes me a subscriber only on the app. I am still persona non grata on the website. $10 is a lot for a poorly written and worse designed app. I moved away from Seattle years ago and only want a way to check in on the sports teams.

Frustrated reader
When are you going to fix the scrolling bug that closes the story I’m reading and returns to the main page? My daily reading experience is continuously disrupted by reloading the story from the main page and finding the place where I left off, sometimes multiple times . ST app is also the slowest and bandwidth hungry of all the newspaper apps I use. Seattle Times subscribers deserve a better iOS app, particularly from the tech center of the universe. Take a look at the Anchorage Daily News (ADN) app which is excellent.

Hard to find today’s news
The Seattle Times is a good paper, but this app is a disappointment. It is hard to find the stories that the editors have selected for the front page and other key sections of the print paper. Old news is mixed in with current news. (And today I saw only Opinion pieces that were three days old or older—not even today’s Opinion pieces.) There is no search function. There is no way to adjust font size. There are recurring Zergnet ads that cheapen the reading experience (the same app appears after every fifth or sixth sentence.) Apps from the WSJ and NY Times could provide good guidance for how to improve this app.

Steals your audio, very annoying
Why does a mostly reading based news app need to steal your audio? Every time I open the app to read an article, my music or podcast in the background stops, which is extremely annoying. Maybe some articles have video or audio in them but why steal the audio when reading unless I’m watching a video or listening a news audio clip? I want to be able to keep listening to my music while also being able to read my Seattle Times. This will make me delete the app if not fixed soon.

Since 1950
Started to read Seattle Times in 1950. First article I can remember reading entirely was Hugh McElhaney running wild in UW victory over the Cougars that Nov day. Over the years I have tried to read it daily while I lived in the area. Does the ST struggle at times? They do politically but always manage to get through it. I hope they don’t fold, cuz sports, travel, entertainment & local news always excellent.

Too many push notifications
The app works pretty well but they send out too many push notifications for stories which aren’t actually breaking news, that newsworthy, or even that interesting. Latest example: “what happened when an underground drill hit a rock”. Yesterday it was something like “woman retires on cruise ship to save money”. Seriously? Be more selective, or give me an option to customize what kind of stories I get notified about.

Feels like a neglected stepchild
Really want to like this app but it feels like a neglected stepchild to the physical paper. Rather than embrace technology and improve the functionality of the app, Seattle Times starts stuck in the past, hoping day will come when Seattle residents will abandon their smartphones and tablets to embrace reading the printed paper front to back each day. Design hasn’t been updated for years, ability to share or print articles does appear to work, and information is poorly organized. Better just to view paper through its website.

Heavily Biased Coverage
The news and editorial staff such as Danny Westneat despise Republicans and consider those of us who disagree with their views to be ignorant country buffoons who are dependent on the mighty wise urban benefactors to survive. Those of us in the hinterlands have a different view. We’ll be fine on our own if it comes to that, but we would prefer a more equitable arrangement where we provide you with what you need to live happy and safe in your urban domain and we get to be free and happy in the hinterlands without your interference. Also, without those damned Californians... they can’t seem to leave their politics at the border when they move here...

In Touch
As a native Seattleite I appreciate keeping in touch. I was born and raised there mid-century. My kids, grandkids and other family members are still there. I retired to Central Oregon but read the ST daily. My brother and I were paper boys in the 50s. I always helped him carry the big load on Sundays in the neighborhood around NE 65 Street above 25th Ave NE. I visit there often and appreciate the Corona Virus updates, not to mention everything else. I love keeping up with what’s going on there as it affects me and my family. Things are different there now. Gone are the simple days of my childhood in the Wallingford area just north of Ravenna. I still love Seattle and all it represents. It is my hometown.

Electronic version of Seattle Times
It needs lots of work! The same stories appear in several different sections. Much of the news in the local section is not local. Sometimes there is just one tiny paragraph that says nothing more than the headline. And often the article just stops in the middle of a sentence and the rest of it won’t come up. I like reading the Seattle Times to keep up with what’s going on locally but you make it very difficult.

Very out of date app, especially without the ability to see comments, and search. Want to see the election results? Can’t search - you have to click around until you find a similar article and then hope to find the related article. It’s clear this is a 3rd party purchase - you frequently have to re-login and even then the app will launch web page versions of its own articles…..requiring you to also sign in there.

I especially love their investigative reporting. I have subscribed since the 1980's. I do wish they would feature "ordinary" homes in the Sunday section.

The app would actually be 5 stars but for this one issue that’s been present for years. Even medium length articles have the last few paragraphs cut off and longer articles can have quite a bit more.

v6.0.0 is a mess!
This most recent update is terrible! The app is even less navigable than before. • Gone is the iOS standard double tap to zoom on photos. • Zoomed photos can no longer be dragged, making looking at graphs a nightmare. • Pulling down at the top of a section causes a reload, no matter how slight the pull. • Making the back button smaller and leaving in the far left corner of the screen means I have to use two hands to navigate the app. Apple demonstrates outstanding design language in their News app. I urge the ST app developers to adopt those concepts for a far more user friendly app. Oh, and one more thing: please, please, please stop sending me push notifications for articles I just finished reading! Don't you collect any metrics!?
