  • Font size in articles

    By Highspeedhomer
    When will you fix the font size in articles? I can adjust the IOS font, and headlines are impacted. However when you go into the article, the main text is still super small.
  • Great app, where's the search button?

    By Lindami
    Update to this review - no search on the mobile app. What??
  • Good App, but irritating bug

    By crimsoncoug92
    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.
  • Beware of the never ending request to cancel subscriptions…

    By Alkibeach
    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.
  • No search bar for a news app? Really?

    By EwillSea
    There is no search feature and if you click on a link in an article it leaves the app and opens the article in my web browser, and doesn’t know I have a subscription so it limits how many articles I can see.
  • Steals your audio, very annoying

    By Dr. KK
    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.
  • Buggy, articles get cut off

    By maxifba
    Constant crashes. About 80% of articles get cut off with no way to fix it. By the amount of reports I have sent them the Seattle times is fully aware this is an issue they just don’t care.
  • Great paper, app needs a little work

    By E.Scribo
    The Seattle Times has had great, informative coverage of virus information during the pandemic. The appearance of this app is good and I find it easy to use, but one massive problem is that links clicked within the app open in a browser. Links should open in the app! Any user who frequently clears data like cookies from their browser is equally frequently nagged to log in, and it’s so annoying. Just open in the app, where users are logged in. I am a paid subscriber, by the way, and this is an affordable subscription for excellent local reporting. If you’re whining that it’s not free, please buy a subscription. You don’t get to walk up to a newsstand, grab a paper, and leave without paying, either.
  • Seattle??

    By Quackman2
    The Seattle part is lacking. Go to Sports and you have to scroll down 20 or 30 stories to find the latest story on the Huskies, Mariners or other local sports team. Can’t figure out why the Seattle Sports section starts out with stories about soccer games in Europe, all that is fine but the local sports should lead the section.
  • v6.0.0 is a mess!

    By proxac
    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!?
